A FREE-SPIRITED couple gave up their three bed house in favour of living an old school van that they renovated themselves.
DIY fans Katy and Sam, from Florida, bought the new wheels in December 2020 and finally got it on the road in January of this year.

They update their Instagram account with regular pictures documenting their journey from three-bed house to van life.
They said: “From a three-bedroom home we owned in Charleston, to a rented two-bedroom apartment in Seattle, to a bus construction zone house in St Pete.
“We’ve spent the last few years shedding material possessions.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love collecting special treasures and have bought many to furnish this bus!
“But this idea of shedding to just our favourites feels so exciting and freeing to me right now.”
Katy and Sam took on the work themselves with the help of friends and Sam organising the work around his job and studying.
Katy said: “Sam won’t ever toot his own horn, but I will: he works full time, is in grad school part time, and has spent most nights and every weekend this summer chipping away at this project.
“And look at this cute lil dinette he built us!”
The project includes a double bedroom with four feet of closet space, stunning shower room and an office nook. As well as dinette and kitchen area.
These days the pair are driving round the States on various adventures.
Katy said: “[We are] exploring beach towns, going on morning bird walks, having bon fires, and eating a lot of smoothie bowls.”

In other news, people never believe what’s inside our tiny van, we spent months doing it up & it’s even got a home CINEMA.
Meanwhile, I turned a rusty old caravan at the bottom of the garden into a woodland haven, it’s like going on holiday.
Also, I’ve saved hundreds after I transformed a tatty old IKEA cabinet into a swanky new one for just £15.
