And the books fit πŸ“š . Not all storage should be hidden away, our bookshelf isn’t just for books but also a place to put other homely things such as plants and little trinkets we pick up along the way. . . . #day8 #bookstagram  #book #plantlover  #green #recycle#pallettwoodweloveyou #recycleinn #conversion  #building #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree #projectvanlife #outboundliving #plantlover #bookselfie
Throwback to last week when the sun was shining, eggs were cooking, and finals were not happening... two more days until exams are finished and vacation begins! Who else is excited for the holidays!?
Working amongst the eucalyptus | it's actually a massively dangerous tree here in Portugal and is one of the reasons massive swathes of the country burned this summer due to how immensely flammable it is πŸ˜•
The secret in small spaces like vans is to have multifunctional furniture. We've designed our van with minimal amount of moving parts which reduces the chances of them failing. . . When transforming our bedroom into a living room we can either store the moving part above our heads or use it as a steady table as shown in this little short demonstration. Next step : cut the mattress to shape πŸ€—πŸ€˜πŸ½ . . . .  #palletwoodweloveyou #vanwarming #recycleinn #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle @vanlifekitchens  @vanlife.magazine @vanlifecuisine @vanlifediaries @vanlifedistrict  @outdoorlivingdiary
Van life building essential : a sharp knife !πŸ”ͺ . .  Our friend @jakphillips makes the most beautiful knives. On this specific model he created only this amazing wooden handle but check out his account to see his other creations where he mostly recycles cutting saw blades to go with his wooden handles. . . .  #legend #knife #diy #recycled #recycleinn #recycleinn #palletwoodweloveyou #choosetoreuse #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #vanlifeculture #vanbuild #instratravel #justpassingthrough  #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanliving
It's getting festive up in here!!! πŸŽ„β„οΈοΈπŸŽ„
Roxi's first snow!
Making decisions about the shape of the breach in the wall and building the wall. . For us it is important to make a separation between the front part of the van and the "living part" for privacy and storage space, but we didn't want to cover the whole thing to keep visibility in the mirror and drive safe on the wild NZ roads. 🎒🚐 . . #day8 #vanliving #southofthewall #rollercoaster  #timelapse #wall #pallettwoodweloveyou #recycleinn #conversion  #building #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree #projectvanlife

As you walk down the #greatwesterncanal from where we are parked, we found these old barges for transporting the limestone. @theindieprojects if you ever need to expand your home, here is an option!
Bed part 2 : we've cut the bed base in the shape of our couch and left the extra ply wood on the side to fiugure out how to make a tasble with it. We're not big fans of the standard conversions that include an extra pole to make the table so we're trying to think of something different and space efficient. Will keep you posted ! . . #day7 #timelapse #bedbase ✌🏽#screwyoudown #recycleinn #conversion  #building #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree #projectvanlife
On #day7 we’re moving upwards ! Yasmine made the 4 bottom draws out of pallet wood (and scrap ply for the bottom of the draw) and we are reusing those metal plaques that we first took out of the car on the sliding doors when insulating them. Drilled a couple of holes and added a rope ( found 30 m of rope at the recycling centre so better start using it πŸ˜‚) and here we are πŸ€—  #recycleinn #palletwoodweloveyou #choosetoreuse #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #vanlifeculture #vanbuild #instratravel #justpassingthrough  #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanliving
Bed base has been cut to shape ! We now try to find a system to cut a table out of the bed base to have the option to have either a couch or a bed. Unfortunately with the size of our van we don't have the luxury of having a fixed bed, maybe next time ? πŸ˜‰ . .  We found a perfect thick foam mattress at the opshop that we're gonna cut to shape and saw with other materials. For us foam mattress is actualy luxury as whilst traveling  we love adventure and are most of the time roughing it sleeping on people's couches, tenting or flooring 🀣 . .  #shuffletime #day7 #bedbase #rvanshuffle @vanlife.magazine #timelapse @vanlifediaries #scrapwood #buildyourown #recycleinn #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree @vanlifedistrict
#day7 This morning for coffee we’ve been given this extra hessian sack ! Really would love to make this guy fit somewhere. . . Even though we bought everything second hand or got it for free, we’re starting to have more than enough material but are so thankfull that we’d love to make it all fit. #vanlifeshuffle  #diy #coffee #coffeeaddict #roaster  #buylocal #instacoffee #coffeeroaster #recycleinn #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #vanlifeculture #vanbuild #diycamper
So I made the @recycleinn fun account for friends & family to follow our new van building adventures. .  We are building another van from scratch made of #recycled and #reused materials. Some of them perfectly fine like the high quality insulating material found in the local carpet store skip bin. πŸ€”πŸšπŸ› β™»οΈ .  #choosetoreuse #refuse #culturedujetable #stopwasting  #dumpsterdiving #overconsumption #houselessnutnothomeless #recycleinn #vanlifeproject #zerowaste #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #vans #conversion #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #projectvanlife #theindieprojects #vanlidekitchens #vanlifers #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #vanlifeculture #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit#freshairclub
Our recycled benchtop is in ! What's poking out on the right side of the video ? It's an old school desk, they can be found everywhere in NZ and are so cool. We removed the previous funky formica top and replaced it by a cut of our bench top so it aligns with the rest. The result will be shown on next posts !. . #day6 #benchtop #kitchen #reducewaste @vanlifekitchens  @vanlife.magazine @vanlifecuisine @vanlifediaries #scrapwood #kitchembench #buildyourown #recycleinn #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree @vanlifedistrict
Yesterday before finishing our day's work we managed to give our bench top a straight(ish) cut. After browsing for more pallets we ended up at a roof joinery place to pick up some wood scrap and they were happy to give away and found this beautiful lenght of wood, bent and twisted with the bark hanging out on one side, but we absolutely love it and can already picture it sanded and varnished ! . . Installation is due today for Rene while Yasmine will build all the 4 draws from scratch that will go under the bed / couch base. .  #day6 #tradiesareyourallies #timelapse #kitchenbench #vankitchens #tablesaw #palletwoodweloveyou #vanwarming #recycleinn #conversion #houseonwheels #makeyourownvan #vanlifeproject #lesswaste #reduce #loveyourplanet #vanlifediaries #choosetoreuse #recycling #vanlife #travelnewzealand #theindieprojects #vanlifers #vanlifejournal #vanlifemagazine #camperlifestyle #plasticfree
Secret beach in Spain and a bumpy ride to find it. Time flies in this van and everyday it feels more like home sometimes I forget we are standing somewhere next to some dunes or there's a cliff hanging next to us. In the mornings I cant wait to open the curtain to see the first light hit the waves. . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #toddler #ontheroad #vandwellers #projectvanlife #vanlifemagazine #hiddenbeaches #hiddenbeach #spain #photography #beautiful #livingontheroad #family #travel #traveleurope #vanlifeurope #theindieprojects #camperlifestyle
