Whether you agree with that logic or not, one man named Dipa Vasudeva Das decided to be especially thrifty and conjured up his own quaint little mobile home out of an old beat-down van.

How did he do it? Well, you’ll just have to see it for yourself.

With the goal of creating a traveling home, Dipa initially framed everything out while adding plenty of spaces for much-needed future storage.

A skylight was added for some natural light to liven up the place.

With the frame complete, he added intricate wood paneling throughout the entire mobile home.

All the furniture is built in to the existing frame and walls.

Making the most of every square inch, below each door is a pull-out drawer providing even more storage space.

Behind the door (on the interior of the van) is a space under the floorboards that allows you to stand while using a hidden sink.

The back has a patio for chilling with friends as well as a compartment to hide a bicycle or two.

Tucked underneath the floorboards is a small dinner table to accommodate up to four people.

A fireplace seems ludicrous in a small little space such as this, and yet here one sits.

The fireplace even has its own built-in insulated chimney for safety, of course.

Even more storage space.
