So... my plan is to live in my van. There's many contributing factors to this decision, one being I work building festivals for 5 consecutive months every year and a few other reasons which eventually boil down to economic, environmental and cost of living. This has been a project I have been working on for nearly a year but it has been moving slowly again due to financial difficulties. I would be quite happy pottering along at a slow pace however I am now facing a winter in the van. I have the skills to do most of the work myself however the gas, plumbing and electrical side of things scares me a little. So for the money I am asking I hope to get the bare materials to continue the insulating and cladding, build most of the interior and employ somebody to do the scary bits, I'm hoping a friend for a discount rate. I already feel uncomfortable asking for help so please only donate if you can really afford it and I ask that you donate half of what you would consider giving to me to a worthy cause. I would do this myself out of the proceeds however it would mean asking more which I'm not sure is achievable. Thank you for taking the time, even the smallest contribution is greatly appreciated whether I make my target or not. I hope you all have a great day :)
