Alex & Sara’s Sprinter Van Conversion

Sara & Alex live and work full time on the road in their Sprinter van conversion. They built it themselves and started with a used van that had only about 55,000 miles on it. The van initially cost about $25,000 to buy and $14,000 and 3 months to finish. Read about all the van build details on the 40 Hours of Freedom website.

Inside they have a wet bath with a shower & toilet, a fully functional kitchen, a large table that quickly converts into a large bed, and tons of storage. I especially like how they finished the van off inside – white with wood accents really brightens it up inside. Their van started as a passenger van, so it has lots of windows too.

To earn a living they run an online business teaching folks how to start and run an online business. Watch this video about how they earn a living on the road.

Below is their van tour video. If you want to learn more about their van conversion and how they live and work full time on the road subscribe to the 40 Hours of Freedom YouTube Channel and visit the 40 Hours of Freedom website.

The Stannexe

The Stannexe, named by the client as it is both a Studio and Annexe began life as a trapezoidal car garage with an up and over door and a leaky flat roof. Our brief was to create a bright, well insulated space that could accommodate a small family for short periods and also be used as an artist’s studio. The conversion required careful design that complimented the local conservation area.” – Tiny House Swoon.
