This makes me want to take the leap and buy a van to revamp. Think of all the possibilities.

All Brenda needs for a home is her van named Copper and her dog Ranger.

She makes living in a van look so cozy and cool with her Bohemian-themed interior.

Despite all that beauty, her living space is very functional, too. It is equipped with a kitchen, bed, workspace, and lots of storage space.

One unique feature of her van home is this pocket door to the cab.

Brenda wanted to create that sense of separation between the cab and her home, so she created a separation with an arched doorway.

She utilized that wall for additional storage, too. She has a compartment for her shoes (which slides below the car seat) and the shelves for her clothes.

She also has enough space for an L-shaped kitchen counter.

Her sink is at the corner, giving her enough shelf space while she keeps a toaster and mini-fridge below. She keeps her burners, pots, and pans in storage below her bed while her food is in the top cabinet.

Her bed is big and cozy enough to sleep on.

She uses a 3-inch Japanese mat instead of a full-size mattress since she can just roll up the excess length, elevating one side of her bed.

This bed can turn into a couch with an incline mechanism at the back, originally intended to make room for a bike.

Her workstation is a simple hammock and a foldable desk.

Since she’s working 9-5, she needs a comfortable workspace. Aside from this, she also has a foldable table by her bed, or she takes out a detachable wooden panel for a chair to work on the kitchen counter.

Internet is not a problem, either, since she uses her phone as a hotspot. She just makes sure that she has a good network signal to keep connected.

“But what about the bathroom?” you might ask.

She has a portable toilet to do her business.

She also has many tools for showering, including an inflatable bath to stand in, some curtains that she can magnet at the back door of her van or attach to the wall indoors to cover her up, and portable ‘showers’ for her water supply.

Ranger even has his own tiny home below her bed.

There’s a small arched passage for him to go through his little space. Brenda shares that she keeps Ranger in there if she needs to go out and can’t bring him with her.

Besides that, he stays in the front seat when she’s driving or cuddling with her in bed, at her workspace, or outside.

But Brenda’s favorite part is the marine skylight hatch at the ceiling by her bed.

It opens 90 degrees so she can watch the stars at night or even come out from the hatch and prop herself up on the van’s roof to enjoy the view. Just look at that beauty.

For some, living in a van may be daunting, but Brenda has some advice.

She said that if you’re thinking about doing the same, go for a test run for a while.

Live in a van before modifying it to see how it would feel and get an idea of how you’ll make use of the space. Read, research, and just go for it when it feels right.
