Almost there! 🙌🏽🙌🏽

I'm digging the planks on the ceiling. What are they? Are they repurposed?
The ceiling is “aromatic red cedar” I actually bought it all raw From a gentleman that worked for the Forestry department, they were cutting a ton of it and I got it for $30 total for the whole lot and had an Amish gentleman mill it for $15! I got really lucky
Looks great, nice job! Hopefully it will keep the dirty socks smell out of the van! Lol
Haha that’s what I’m hoping! I kept it super open so if there is a funky smell it’s not isolated!
Good idea. Is that varnish/lacquer or a stain that you put on there? Picture #2 vs picture #4 really shows the change in coloration.
Just varnish to really pull out the color
There was a change cause it went from hardly any light to light right on it
That is what my grandfather would call providence with a capital P. Give thanks and credit to whom credit is due, Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides.
This is awesome. Where do you live, out of curiosity? I feel like this type of authentic interaction is super rare today... big-box stores have taken over
I live in Wisconsin! And yea I drive maybe 15 min out of town and it’s all cows and pastures
What van you got?
1983 Chevy G20
Looks good so far, I can imagine the result 👐😁
Very nice. You must be really excited.
that is one massive piano hinge
Lol yes it was bigger I had to cut it!
You used wood for the slats. What type of hardwood did u use? Had you consider metal slats?
I used a mixture of cedar and pine, I did but I had a ton of this laying around so I figured id use what I have!
Can I get a link for the hinge you used for the bed? '94 G20 here and I need this design in my van asap lmao😆😆
I don’t have a link sadly... i got it at menards for $10.00 I’m sure any hardware store would have a continuous hinge! If you have any questions on the layout or need pictures I can take some close ups or send you dimensions I think I have some renderings from when I was creating ideas I can send you!
