Hi Everyone My Name is Chloe and I am a fresh face to the HSBNE community as of yesterday YAY! I am hoping to complete a large project on-site - a van build. Being a bit of a travel addict, that is currently barred from traveling overseas with COVID19, I thought perhaps I should explore my homeland down under, hence I bought a van. My plan is to travel around Australia both rural and urban delivering sustainability workshops to schools while finishing up my Masters of Climate Change Policy at ANU on the road.
Size: I bought at 2020 Peugot Boxer, that I have named Hope. It is 5.9m long.
Cost: $0 as I would never ever leave my brand new car behind. But if in the case of my death or kidnapping towing costs would be around $150
Timeline: There are two answers to this, the hopeful 1month answer and the realistic 2-month answer. I am only looking to complete the basic shell including the roof (solar, fan etc), sound deadening, insulation, flooring, walls, before heading off to travel for a bit. Full disclosure: I am one of those people that has never really touched a power tool is their life time, and has decided to build a van as their first project, so either crazy or delusional, the jury is out on that one. Only time will tell if I sink or swim… but I’m a great swimmer and a quick learner. I would love to start ASAP.
Thanks for your consideration
