Yes from scratch!!! Intent of use will be occasional weekend camping with maybe 2 small children and their mother.. eventually, hopefully used as full-time until we settle wherever. We are keeping the rear bath, a front dinette/bed, kitchen sink , refrigerator, microwave , countertop electric burners ( movable) , heat will be a.tiny.wood stove, electric tankless hot water... Was thinking gaucho bed from the front moved to the center and used as a day bed or full sleeper as needed.

I suggest some blue tape to try out layouts. Get measurements of all your stuff and see how it fits. Maybe even get some boxes to simulate stuff I'd you're feeling fancy.

I have the rear bath, mid bed (permanent), front couch configuration, and it works well for us. I can see how a dinette would be helpful, but we like our couch.

I have a long counter down the curb side which is very useful. Wood stove up front next to the fridge. Kept the rear bath but moved the shower away from the wall so I don't hit my head.

Your needs are likely to be different from mine.

We have the Hobbit, and a flue kit from tinywoodstove.com. We love our stove. It really transforms the space, and it's incredibly useful for off-grid life. It's a bit large for the space until the temperature gets down to single digits. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go with the Dwarf 3kw instead.

Just took a bunch of photos for the appraisal, so here you go. Not 100% finished, but it's home.

I absolutely.love.yours!!! I completely understand the heat factor. We live in a.two story vintage farm house, only source of heat is a wood furnace in the cellar ..it will cook you out of the diningroom.

Haha yeah... Why more people don't put dishwashers in Airstreams I'll never understand. Saves a ton of water and work. It's a Fisher and Paykel dish drawer. Has a locking drawer for travel and everything. Fits perfectly under the 17" range (the short version).

Thanks! Feel free to shamelessly steal the bits of the design that work for you. There's a bunch of step-by-step info on the renovation on our blog. It's rewarding to customize the space to exactly fit your own needs. Leanne and I both love having a dishwasher, so I designed the rest of the kitchen around it. Same with the wood stove. It's something we both really wanted, so we made it work.

I really like your creative redesign of your Overlander.

Is that ceramic tile on the shower walls? If so, how is it holding up traveling?

What kind of range is that? I will be redoing our 95 34’ and I would like to install a range and dishwasher in it as you have done in your Overlander.

Thanks, Dan

Thanks. I don't want to hijack this thread, so unless you're the OP, let's do any questions about my renovation here:

Husband is leaving for work, ( hauls cattle out of state) wife wants to dig into the sides and start removing the wall panels.. who would like to be my step by step Instructor lol.
Does bottom or top come off 1st?
