This project-based senior project is the design and preconstruction work needed to complete the build-out of the interior of a van in order to become a livable space. This project includes a 3D model of the vans designed interior, a developed estimate approximating the project cost, and a tentative schedule for the construction. This project was created to provide others with the information needed to identify how it is possible to live off the grid and what the initial upfront costs may be. Ultimately, this project should serve as a case study to assist others who are interested in potentially pursuing a life off the grid by building out a livable space in a van.
