Building my van out with Brett was a wonderful experience. From tools to know-how to ingenuity, Brett’s got it all and can build you a custom, to-your-liking van on a budget. For example, we made my sink from a chafing dish instead of dropping unnecessary dollars on an actual sink. And even better, we were able to completely build the van in about 2 weeks of work. If you’re looking to live the vanlife without dropping 50k on a pre-built vehicle, Brett is your guy!

If you like working with people who can get business done but can also kick back and have some great conversation over a couple of brewskis, you’ll like Brett. Not many people have actual applied experience with van and car conversions, but Brett has helped multiple people, ourselves included, build cozy, practical homes on wheels. We worked with him to create the design from scratch, and he helped us innovate throughout the process as we encountered unexpected challenges. The whole conversion process was fast, fun, affordable, and extremely personalized. We are now on the road full-time and couldn’t have done it without Brett. We couldn’t recommend Brett more highly if you are considering any kind of conversion. He’s a great craftsman and an all-around good dude.

First off, I am so proud of my car now. I mean, I get to drive my actual bed around with me. Moreover, building rather than buying the sleeping platform allowed me to make an adventure out of the process. It also gave me the chance to personalize the drawers to my preference. Even though Brett was the only one who knew what he was doing, I got to pour my sweat and passion into this project. He had great suggestions and ideas for the layout, and was willing to work around my vision for the car. Brett wasn’t trying to make a business deal, but was genuinely just as excited about traveling and exploring as I was. It was like pimp my ride with Pink Floyd for pump up music. I honestly can’t wait for all the stupendous adventures I’ll have because of this.

Brett did an incredible job. I wanted to build a little home for travel inside my tiny Nissan NV200, but I had none of the expertise. Brett did it in 8 days. He took into account everything I needed: two person slat bed, solar panels, storage space, an area to cook outside. His prices are insanely reasonable and he’s always looking to save you money on materials. Above all, Brett is good people. He works hard. He’s kind and funny. 6 our of 5 stars. Brett does van magic.

About Me



After throwing some cardboard and a sleeping bag into the back of my 4Runner for a camping trip to Colorado, I became intrigued with the idea of sleeping in my car. A few years later and thousands of dollars lost in rent for my place in Austin, I decided it was time to find a new template to live and be comfortable. 

Now - after two years I am onto my latest project, to build homes on wheels. Armed with a Sprinter to call home and my mobile workshop, I am traveling to build custom homes for adventure seekers.
