Conversion Description

Atlas (the van’s name) took me nearly a year of on and off work to get to where he is at now, I have done everything to the highest specs, using top quality materials.

The idea was to create a beautiful, bright space (Atlas is a stealth van and therefore the interior is kept bright and airy but there are no side windows) that is inviting and feels nice to be in. I was inspired by the classic shepherds hut style. It’s open and not cluttered but still with ample storage space.

I have to sell Atlas due to a change in personal circumstance and am sad I won’t get to see it through to the end. The physical structures are all there and have been done meticulously. Insulation, wallpapering, storage, bed and kitchen counters are all completed. It just needs to have the amenities fitted: electrics, water and gas. There are lots of conduits provided in the walls for all the electrics and the bed was meant to be used for water storage, electrics junction box and battery storage etc. In the design process a Diesel heater was planned as primary heat source, however, this could also be achieved with a gas heater.

So, Atlas still needs the last push but it is a great opportunity to kit him out with exactly what your personal needs are. I am possibly able to do some of the work for an agreed price, particularly the electrics (I am an electrician by trade) and depending on my current work situation. But I would prefer it to be sold, as is.

I am open to reasonable offers, as I am aware there is still some work to be done. It is a lovely van, in good condition and you will be getting a lot of van and work for the money.

The work so far

– In the conversion process he has been insulated with Celotex and Rockwool, no spray foam insulation has been used due to ecological concerns. After that a continuous vapour barrier has been fitted all the way through which protects the chassis from moisture and rust. The walls are ultra-lightweight and therefore the overall weight of the van is low at this point, despite it being a long wheel base.

– The floor is insulated as well, has an additional layer of soundproofing/Insulation and is lined with a beautiful vinyl floor.

– The primary light source is two LED strips that run the entire length of the ceiling and provide indirect warm white light. These sit in two beautiful natural edge solid oak lamps that give the van a bit of a rustic touch.

– I fitted hand made solid oak worktops in the Kitchen and on the sideboard.

– The storage above the cab is insulated and lined with ply inside and offers a lot of storage.

– Lots of built in storage in the kitchen area and opposite the bed, complete with shelving

– There is a space in the Kitchen storage made to fit an LPG gas tank

– Bed measurements 120cm x 190cm, sleeps two and easily pushes into a sofa

– I do have a sink that I bought for Atlas and you are welcome to have if it’s to your taste.
