✨✨ Hot & Cold ✨✨
Gus came with a heater that, after much deliberation, we decided to keep. Shawn boxed it in and got a swanky vent on clearance @canadiantire and boom! Instant beauty.
Another big decision was the fridge. Mini bar fridge? Small bar fridge? We got this mini one off Craigslist for cheap and are super pleased with the results!

More progress on the van.. after many.. many hiccups and pretty much everything breaking that can possible break including the van the end is in sight 🙌🏼 just a couple of things left to do like the cupboard doors, installing the solar panel and some finishing touches and it should be good to go 💃🏻

The beginning stages of our #vanconversion are happening! We’re doing our best at converting the van ourselves, although between day jobs and socialising we don’t have a whole lot of time to work on her - but when we can we love it! So far we have insulated the floor and bottom half of the walls, screwed ply wood to the floor, and put a few beams up which we will nail the pinewood wall cladding to. For the first week of work it’s not too bad!
We will soon be sharing with you guys a detailed explanation of our van build process on our blog, so please take a look if you’re interested in how and why we’ve done what we have... or just go ahead and have a skim through if you’re just the kind who likes to watch the conversion process - it is mighty satisfying! •

Those of you in the UK may have distant memories of "The Beast From The East" earlier this year and those of you that have been following us closely may recall the story of our 10 hour drive to Cornwall partially lost in "The Beast From The East" it was around the 9 hour mark, windows frozen on the inside and Joe dusted in snow, yes it snowed inside the cab, we thought 'heating would be a fine thing' and ever since that stark realisation we have been farting around trying to solve the mystery of why our heating has never worked...it could be many many things. After binging on YouTube vids, searching the depths of transit forums and more farting we decided to flush the heater core/ radiator/matrix (what evs you mechanic nerds call it) and voila we have hot air but sadly only from the lower vents around the ankles and ,well..it came at a cost...We broke our hose "quick release clips" and somehow snapped the end off the inlet into the core...alas, we won't freeze to death and the ankle burners will have to do for now..I feel a "how now to fix your van heater" vid coming to you soon.
State #45: Massachusetts
Hardest state to spell? I certainly think so. We orientated ourselves with Boston by taking a walking tour along the freedom trail and watching Mark Whalberg movies while eating cream pie. Oh, and we also went to Harvard and touched that statue’s foot so now we’re super smart I think?
We can always count on the American Southwest to inspire us. #ahouseofmonks
