Frequently Asked Questions
Cool Vans! How much do they cost?!?
SInce every van is unique and custom to the owner, It depends on a large variety of designs and options. A build-out can start around 5k for a basic conversion and up to 50k+ for a full high end conversion complete with solar package, custom high end woodwork that is designed for full-time living.
If you have any drawings (bed layout, kitchen, if needed), specifications (solar package?) or inspirational builds from our website or others, we should better be able to provide a rough estimate. Fill out the contact form and we can begin the convansation!
Do you still do woodworking? Furniture? Built-ins? Cabinetry?
Woodworking is our core passion of what we do. Since our primary focus has shifted to doing van conversions, we are finding it harder and harder to find time to fit in projects that involve built-ins, cabinetry, and furniture. However, I share a shop with Joe of Joe Joe Built It and I can say that he does quality work and am happy to pass along his name and website.
Do you sell vans? How does it work?
We do not sell vans at this time, but are looking into this option in the future. Currently, the way it works is the owner purchases a van and we go over budget, design and agree upon a price and sign a contract. Once this is done, the van is delivered to our woodworking shop in Seattle by the owner. Clients come from all over the U.S. to work with us, so it does not have to a localized project. And when the van conversion is ready for pick up, the Pacific Northwest is the perfect place to begin your adventure!
How long do your conversions take? What is your current schedule?
We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and quality materials. Every new build is different from the last and presents new and exciting challenges. We do one build at a time and and are in constant communication with the owner going over details and updates of the build. Because of all these factors, a full conversion generally comes in around 12-16 weeks. We hold projects in queue with a $500 non-refundable design deposit that ensures a spot on our schedule.
