Are you wanting to build you own camper vehicle, campervan or mobile home (home of wheels) but you’re completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information out there, where to buy things, what brands are better than others, and everything else..? Or are you looking to have a local carpenter/van builder make you a home on wheels but you want to have a clear idea about what features you want and where to locate them, and/or have a base design for them to follow but you don’t have the experience of design software? We can help!

Tapping into years of experience of designing and building dozens of different homes of wheels, we are now offering home on wheels design and build consultation services so we can help other people around the world discover the joy, freedom and liberation of a minimalist, low cost vanlife lifestyle.
