Hello from New Jersey, USA!

I’ve been following many wonderful vanlife youtube channels for about a year now, and last fall I decided I wanted to do my own van build for part-time, regional camping as well as some road trips with my husband, and occasionally, friends and family.

I just made my first purchase, therefore commitment: my Havelock Wool insulation! Now, I need a van! I am shopping for a used Ford Transit.

In the meantime, I am doing some project management prep, eg. researching, selecting, sourcing, and tracking materials needed in a spreadsheet with cost, researching how-to’s, taking an online furniture design/building class, etc.

Will be sharing my progress soon…

Hello Handy Sandy,

Welcome. I’m a newb here also and this is the first forum I’ve ever been a part of. The folks are very helpful and have a fairly wide range of opinions for how to do things. Just ask and out it’ll come.

Greetings & Welcome!

We’re glad you’re here, and look forward to your participation. :slight_smile:
