Man Converts 1997 Minivan Into Home For $1,000, Then Reveals How He Lives Inside It

Owning a home is a huge responsibility. You have to budget, pay new bills, decorate, or sometimes even construct from scratch.

When Brennan Hatton wanted to travel the world, he took a different approach as a homeowner. He bought a 1997 Ford Aerostar and turned it into a living space made for his travels — and it only took $1,000 to do so!

In the video below, posted on November 20, 2015, Brennan introduces himself and brings his camera around his converted minivan home.

“Let’s take a look inside,” he says in the video, moving the camera into the open trunk.

Inside, there is a large wooden board laying over some milk crates, white metal shelves for storage, and even more storage hidden underneath his sleeping area. During the tour, he explains that his shelving units are hooked where the old seatbelts used to be. Removing the seats gives him much more room.

Brennan uses his minivan’s space for several things. He drives, sleeps, eats, plays guitar, and plans his next move. Sure, it’s not too fancy or pristinely decorated, but this minivan home helps him travel across the Unites States without having to settle down somewhere or feel inconvenienced.

Since he is essentially bringing his home with him, he can come and go as he pleases. What more could an avid adventurer ask for?

Check out the video below to see what Brennan has done with this 1997 minivan, and please SHARE if you think this is a creative idea!
