Living Van

Living Van Chassis_thumbThe building of a traditional Herefordshire roadman’s living van using the original Marshall Sons & Co wheels and associated ironwork from a vintage chassis.

The image opposite clearly shows the starting point for this build, the chassis had lain unprotected in a Herefordshre hedgerow for over 20 years and was about to become my next project!

The poor state of the decayed woodwork was obvious from the start and it’s quite remarkable that, with the help of our trusty Hilux, we were able to drag the whole from its long term resting place and onto the waiting trailer in one piece.

This whole project came about as a result of interest in our own shepherd’s hut build and, following a visit to view my work, I was commissioned to create something similar that’s to be used as additional guest accommodation at a property in Normandy.

It’s a fabulous project that I’m fortunate to be able to work on alongside other commitments and I’ll update this page with details / images as time allows…
