This is an old 1976 Chevrolet van that just got turned into a beautiful home by Savannah and Zach. They spent their honeymoon in it and it is the result of a lot of work, love and crazy DIY video-binging.  Their honeymoon consisted of a three-week road trip along 12 states, away from civilization and taking the dirt roads into the adventure.

How about that for a honeymoon?

In their own words, "This van is strictly a vacation home for us, but it's cozy and functional enough to live in full-time if we wanted to." They invested something in the making of it and their parents supported them by borrowing their garage. The various installations come from Target, all the lightning appliances from Amazon. Their inspiration came from all the old van magazines, the internet and various photos of yacht interiors also helped. They even repainted the whole van exterior themselves. They changed it so much that no one could believe it was the same retro van from 1976.

Their best advice for people who want to try stepping in their footsteps: "Give yourself enough time so it remains fun every step of the way. " Simple, right?

Now, indulge yourself with some pictures! They're magic!
