Time for furniture: Part 3

Felix took his building skills out and all of a sudden we had a van which already feels homely. That’s actually a bit exaggerated. He has no building skills. Okay, just kidding! What I meant is, that Oswald was not readily converted “all of a sudden”. It took Felix (and Tim and me – when-…

Come on in

Finally, there was time for beauty details. We got some leftovern vinyl floor slabs from Tim’s parents. That was a super good catch. This way, we were able to make our floor look really fancy without spending any money. Thank you, Kirsten and Bernd! In the picture you can see how Tim laying our floor.…

One major part in the van conversion is the electricity. Without it, we couldn’t install our fridge, water tap, light, music and electrical outlets. Since we neither know much about electronics nor are able to install our own electrical system, we are super happy that Tim’s dad was ready to help. He was a really…

Cozy beds

Now that we have all the furniture (including beds) we thought it might be nice to have some mattresses for a comfortable sleep. We searched online for used and therefore cheap mattresses we could get. Pretty fast, we found a 1.8x2m mattress that Tim and I picked up with a Citroen C1. Do you know…

Time for furniture: Part 2

In this blogpost we want to show you our closet, the second bed and the table for our seating area. Since we realized that it’s a lot of work and takes lots of time to write down everything step by step, we put all those steps together in this post.

Fly high

Wooden walls

We realized that a lot of our budget for converting Oswald into our cozy home will be needed for wood. So we’ve been searching for ways of saving money on that. Luckily, Tim knows a carpenter who was ready to help. He ordered pretty fancy wood for Oswald’s walls for a really good deal. A…

Time for furniture: Part 1

Since we got rid of our cardboard furniture, we decided that we need a new seating area, a kitchen and everything you need for a living for a few month. So we took a trip to the building supplies store to get some wood, screws, angle brackets and all we need for the first steps.…

What about the traveling?

The idea to put our shared flat on wheels and travel Europe together came from Felix and Tim. I was not 100 per cent convinced in the beginning, since I just moved to Hamburg. But those two can be really convincing, I’ll tell you! After long nights of talking about how to get to know…
