There have been requests for more details on the prototype minivan build just completed by HOWA. The attached manual covers the basics of the materials and tools used, with photos and descriptions of how it all went together.
The manual covers the build on this Ford Windstar minivan. Dimensions will vary depending on the make and model of the van you are building as well as the next van that HOWA builds out. But the basic design, materials and tools used and listed in the manual will provide a good foundation for what is needed to accomplish a build like this one.
Many thanks should be given to the volunteers that came together for three weeks in June to work together as a team to create this minivan home. Nomads brought their skills, experience, energy and tools to build together with compassion and thoughts of the person that will travel in this home on wheels.
Additionally, there were generous donors that purchased items from the Amazon Wishlist that was set up to outfit the interior of the minivan with living essentials such as the mattress, stove, totes and so on.
There were MANY people that put their kindness and compassion to work to bring the minivan home into fruition.
Together We Are Changing Lives and Building Community!
