Owning your own home is expensive these days.
More and more people are looking for alternatives as apartments and private houses are very expensive.
So did the Plentlys family0. For more than a year they tried to find an apartment at an affordable price, but they never found it.
And then the woman came up with the idea to convert an old van, which stood in a private yard and was sold for pennies, into an apartment.
Neighbors and acquaintances were very surprised and even laughed at the family for such an idea.
Even her husband didn’t really like the idea of living in a van at first, but he decided to see what would come of it.
And they started to create. The van was old and rusty.
To begin with, the couple sheathed the walls and cut out the windows, insulated it from the outside and from the inside.
Specialists were called in for plumbing electrical work, the spouses did the rest with their own hands.
Then they added a small second floor, there was supposed to be a bedroom.
They decided to make the interior and furniture multifunctional in order to save space.
A small sofa and a TV set were installed in the living room, under which they made built-in shelves and cabinets.
The kitchen was made separate from the living room, and on the second floor there is a cozy bedroom.
The stairs leading to the second floor also had built-in wardrobes.
As a result, a one-room apartment turned out from an old van.
When the couple invited friends and acquaintances to a housewarming party, everyone was shocked by what they saw.
No one expected that it was possible to reconstruct a piece of metal in this way.
In addition, the house is also mobile, it can be moved from place to place.
In the future, the couple plans to increase the space by attaching another van, as well as making an attic.
This is the creative way to own your own house.
