This country needs more of these young guys with these skills in the construction/trade pipeline. Fantastic build!
@Rr Rr Delighted to hear this. I had made my original post because after watching this video and reflecting on seeing other videos and reading articles about a decrease in people entering the trades (choosing instead to go to college or whatever), while a large number of experienced tradesman were getting ready to retire and taking all that knowledge with them, it just made me sad to think about all the know how that made this country what it is not being refreshed. Glad you and all the others are keeping the tradition strong. Thank you!
As a millennial I started electrical work in Texas at 23. Now I'm a master electrician and I know a TON of hard working guys my age and much younger. They're out there, everywhere, same as every other generation. However with all this social media BS you hear and see the lazy entitled ones while the hardworking men and women keep quiet and focus on their work, families, and goals.
@Steven Hatfield he would be hired by his clients and I'm quite sure he has more than enough to keep him busy. Even when you work for yourself, you are working for someone else. Otherwise he could work all day and not make any money.
We dO...there's Think about all the plumbers and construction guys who build our houses or apartment's or fix them....not to mention the DIYers like this guy
@A&W really? I guess the 25 years as a contractor didn't count.
Don't display your ignorance in public.
The finished van deserves a whole video of its own. That brass in the tiles to match the faucet was just beautiful.
I’m so wowed, hard to find words. It’s powerful: your skills, custom everything !!, the power tools at hand used, the concise video EDITING(!)/ some of the time-lapses, choice of (Epidemic Sounds)-Beats, your enthusiasm, working while dealing with an ankle injury, the outcome is worth every cent. Side note: Nice construction editing software you’re using for planning!! There is lot of love and precision in your craftsmanship. Bravo 👏🏾 👏🏾 👏🏾.Speechless. Awe inspiring
A➕ for your comment 👏👏👏
Such talent I’m convinced he can build anything. It was such a pleasure to watch the process
@bryan ocumen ahah tHE PRICE OF THE TOOL ....Cost more than the van
A bunch of trades he covers - carpentry, plumbing, painting, tiling, welding/metal work, electrical…just wow
I want to make a van house like that so I gonna Save a lot of money 💰 because If you have that you don't worry about paying your rent every end of the month and you don't scared to sleep in the street because you have a free home😄
The amount of skill and talent shown in this video is just unreal. Incredibly impressive!
You are an amazingly industrious young man! Your parents have to be very proud. Your work ethic is A+. God continue to bless.
If I ever wanted a camper van conversion snd had unlimited money to work with, you are the only person I’d want to work on it. You are an artist. Thanks for posting
@Marcus dang really
the money you spend doing it youd buy a regular house! hahahaha not worth it
@Janice Knight with skills and attention to detail like his, he probably has more work than he can get to.
Wow you getting all the women's
I swear...this is amazing...makes me wish I knew more things except guns...if I had unlimited money...I'd get him to build me something too
I can't believe he did 1/2 this van with a walking cast/leg injury. He made it all look so easy. Granted he had all the tools to do it right and a great space to work in (that's a large part of the battle), but, his skills, knowledge and craftsmanship are second to no one. Thoroughly impressed and I am one woman who has done a decent amount of construction on my own homes and at work throughout my 53 years, so I know good work when I see it. Glue it AND screw it if you want it to last! Bravo!!!
Man you did a phenomenal job! You made it look so easy. I absolutely love everything you did to make this van a home away from home.
This is SO dope. I grew up watching and doing a lot of this with my dad. Even the Van projects like paneling and auto mechanics. However, I went to college where the core of my ability with learning from my dad split due to studying and even though I graduated and have used the degree to steadily climb up the corp ladder, I feel like I NEED to complete a core skill training in carpentry or woodshop to be better balanced. This video is inspiring to make me get back into seeking a class or cert while it’s still time. Especially given that I’m interested in continuing Van life that I grew up in from my dad. He is passed away abt two years now
I’m so sorry for your loss 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Two thumbs up to you young man. We need more young people like you. Innovative and skilled in a craft that helps you and others to go forward in life.
The videography work, the camera angles, the level of carpentry skill, the attention to detail… YOU’RE HIM! 🎉
Dang, he’s a one man construction crew.
Plumber, electrician, insulater, painter, designer………great work young man.
Don't forget welder! He has a burgeoning business opportunity in his future if van builds are his passion! ❤
He is a one man construction crew God bless you
Bro the guy is a professional engineer.
With a broken foot
He reminds me of Ame in a van who did everything herself as well. She also has a video out about her construction process.
WOW! I am simply amazed! Imagine being able to give someone who’s facing hard times, the gift of having a home and a vehicle all in one! 🔥🔥🔥
Such a talented young man. You do beautiful work. I think anybody would be lucky to have you turn any vehicle into a dream space. Great job!
This is the best build-out I've seen done, hands-down. And the video work was perfect, and the ratio to talking/no talking was spot-on, like everything else about this video. This guy is a craftsman and very talented. Very, very well done. Bravo!
Stunning work! Amazing talent; Ive been remodeling for 15 years and learned some tricks from this young man!
From a craftsman of 28 years in the field to another, nice job man. Your very talented.
A lot of the construction pieces were very complex to machine and cut. This young guy is gifted as both a designer and constructor. We definitely need more young people with his motivation and talents. This was very interesting to watch.
Now we know the answer to who built the pyramids.
Thank you ❤
I too am impressed by his work. Enjoyed watching and remembering my father maintaining our home. He transformed it into a efficient and comfortable house.
These myriad of skills are hard to come by with the demise of unions and technical skills taught by high schools. In the 1930s my dad attended a technical high school. He was able to build three of our homes with what he had learned. Those skills were passed down three generations to my sons. Thank goodness for utube.
Diversity of skills. Impressive.👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
I admire anyone with the ambition to plan something like this out, and follow through with it. Good on you, kid. I wish you luck in your travels :) Make sure you bring something that helps you connect to those that stayed behind, along with the type memories that keep you warm on cold nights.
This guy is the carpenter, plumber, and electrician ALL IN ONE man🔥 What a build!!
I don’t believe anyone could have taught you how to do some many things in such a short period because you’re a young man. Which tells me only one thing …. You are truly gifted .
Enjoyed it sir 👌🏽
You are an incredibly skilled young man and very creative! Absolutely the best "build" video I've ever seen :)
He's got the skills that very few people his age have now a days. Truly 👏 amazing.. excellent job.
He definitely needs his own remodel project show! Very talented 👏
Absolutely. He makes it look so simple & easy! Total motivation. 💕
He has one and he is producing it.
To say I am impressed and in awe of your ability to conceptualize, design, and build a recreational vehicle from an old van using technology and ingenious craftsmanship. Your creativity, critical thinking, and practical skills are truly remarkable and deserving of praise. Well done! I definitely might want to get one of these done
I admire all of your work that you do on these builds. You are so talented.
Wow, that's incredible! Everything you're building is both beautiful and functional; you're truly a skilled designer, craftsman and innovator. So much luxury and comfort hidden inside a humble work van. Kudos!
prosperity don't come out that way overnight. What Most people see at a glance-wealth, a perfect career, purpose-is the results of hard labour and hustle over time. I pray anyone who reads this will be successful in life...
Have thought of going into bitcoin investment lately, here is a good one, and am excited found this positive information. Thank you and remain blessed
90% of millionaires right now are investors in the
We work for 40yrs to have $1 million in our retirement. meanwhile, some people invest just $10k in cryptocurrency and now they are multimillionaires.
We're lucky we are now living in a world of technology where all the information we need is very accessible to our reach.
Mad skills!! I was totally blown away by your talent, virtually done all by yourself. Amazing work!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
I'm always in awe of people who can build things with their own hands, from scratch! It's almost a lost art. Kudos to you on this impressive build! 👏
A lost art nowadays so true .
Me too 😊
Wow, I am incredibly impressed. You are a master of your craft. It's also shocking the amount of intricacy, Tedious detail and time that really goes into something that looks so simple. What impresses me is that you do it all from scratch. You don't go to Lowe's or home depot and buy something pre made as a countertop or a cabinet. You build it yourself. I've seen any number of Van conversion videos where people who don't have any particular training will do what they can to turn their vehicle into a living space. And even when they go out and they buy prefabricated Closets or cabinets or what have you even then it looks quite complicated and time consuming. But this was just crazy. I bet the hardest part of your job though is admiring all the hard work you put into when it's all done and then it goes to somebody else. I guess keeping a video chronicle of your work helps you keep the results with you but it's still not the same thing as owning it. Anyway I'm very impressed by you and you're brilliant at what you do.
I’ve done carpentry over the years but this is next level! Real talent there! And that sliding bed is so sick💪👍👌
Production quality has gone WAY up! Well done and congrats!
I LOVE watching you build. You're amazing at what you do.
This was so satisfying to watch! I watched from you starting in a walking boot to finish with no skips, superb job!!
This guy's a rare kind of person. It's nice to see he's taking the time to show his way of life to the rest of us. Inspiration at its finest
Wow, I never would have thought anyone could make the inside of a van look luxurious. Well done.
This was so satisfying to watch. Loved seeing the process. You had the right amount of narration and elapsed video to hold our attention. This made me want one. How'd you learn to do this?
Man you done an awesome job on that conversion van state of the art I love all your professional looking work you've done You're no immature by no means!!
If you are this good at such a young age, you'll be a master of your craft by your 30s or 40s. So inspiring.
Those welding skills!
The cutting board drawer!!
Videos like this really showcase how we can build things from scratch and the creativity of people. Keep doing things with passion!
I can't believe I just spent my lunch break watching this young man build a house inside of a van. EXCELLENT WORK, young brother. You have MAAADDD skills, man. Keep up the excellent work and you just picked up another subscriber to your channel.
Incredible work young man! 👍🏾 I enjoyed every inch, frame, paint & glue drop, saw-dust, insulation of your video. You are a true Builder from start to finish!!👷🏾♂️ I have a few questions? What is the weight of the Van after the project was completed? How did your work stand up when it finally got on the road for the first time after completion? Was there any issues with the power required by the Van’s Engine? Did you have to make any modification to it? Again, awesome work young man. 👍🏾✊🏾😎
@DualEx I just have to ask ... where are you located and how would someone go about acquiring your services ? Oh, and by the way, you're amazing and have some very mad skills ... keep it up !
@DualEx you should make a Mobil Barbershop 💈from a a large UPS Truck & drive to Get Beamed,360 Jeezy , or Minnieweather ….. doing cross collaborations
@DualEx Wassup my brother, do you remodel travel trailers also?
Great carpentry skills, and even some welding. Creative design. I enjoy watching a craftsman at work! Thanks for the vid, young man!
I know even now I'm gonna love your clean, sleek decorating sense of style. I love white! A marble shower too? Amazing! Good luck with your finishing touches. Great workmanship! Beautiful!
I am truly at a loss for words. That was amazing. I could definitely live in something like that.
Just stumbled onto your channel. What a skilled young man. Very impressive design and execution. It makes a big difference in budget if you know how to do everything yourself. I like how you showed what you did for each component. 👍
You are so talented! If I ever decided to live in a small space, you would be the person I would want to design it and make it possible. 😊
This man is beyond human. He has a craftsmanship that is unlike anyone I've seen before. He also has such a calm demeanor that makes these videos relaxing and easy to follow. What a guy!
@DualExOfficial1 !! Thank you! How do I contact you?
@Bertha George Ab. So. Lute. Lee!!
I Definitely Agree!!!!
@Shawn Prime a gf
Wow, awesome work. I haven't searched for anything like this, and I'm not sure why it showed up in my TL, but I'm glad it did. I love watching things like this. Great job!
Wow. Pretty impressed. You do great work, the look isn't my style either but I recognize the skill and professionalism that went into making it. The the finished pieces look well put together and moreover well thought out! That is a lot of functionality in a small space. I think a conversion like that would make a great 'camping' van for a couple. Throw a bike rack on the back and hit the parks. Well done!
Absolutely incredible, immense skill and attention to detail, really really impressive!
I'd never hesitate nor feel done watching you doing all these stuffs❤️ I can't explain how perplexed and amazed i am watching you being so God damn good in your work. Keepin the Craftsmanship(which indeed is very2 impressive) a-side, you're also God damn good producing video in such cinematography level 😍😲❤️❤️ You got a Golden Buzzer from me for the whole infinity times.
Absolutely amazing! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾I’m stunned that this wasn’t even built for you😮! I agree, you’re the one to contact when I’m ready to do a van conversion 👍🏾
Electrical, plumbing, woodworking, solar, filmography, computer, insulation, designing, painting, tiling, speaking...did I miss any skill set he's got!!! Amazing. Thanks for posting.
Fuck 🙆♂️😆😆😆 thats crazy meeh 🖤🖤🖤🖤
@Chicago0048 Hi, as he mentioned in the video, he did this for someone. Welcome to the channel. I got recommended this way back and got glued watching his videos. I’d recommend checking out his first videos as they are quite interesting .
Yea 20 grand later ...
I wonder how much it cost? And is this going to be his permanent housing?
I’m proud of you, young man. Have lots of wonderful adventures in your new motor home.
Your skills are beyond epic. What a joy to watch you do EVERYTHING with such a stunning result. Bravo!
This is so awesome 👌 🙌 You made it look so easy, but it took wicked smarts, skills, patience, and talent to do this. Congrats! It is lovely 🏡
This was Soo therapeutic to watch. So satisfying. Thank you for taking the time to record whilst working. Your are gifted.
I am in total awe! Hell of a talent you have. Makes me want to go buy a van. Amazing
This guy is a machine, and skilled in every aspect of the construction. I’m so impressed. An amazing transformation.
OK no I didn’t do it twice so I’m glad I did it a second time and you will get my new message I hope you read your messages!!!!
I think I sent you a message twice because I didn’t see it posted so forgive me if I did but please call me
Are you implying that single mothers need to watch this channel for a job? And get motivated for great opportunities because the message is lost
Can I be married or do I have to be single?
If anything I’ll get inspired but not motivated by watching this young man convert a van-
Great job.I am impressed with the finish result and all done to get there!!
Wow. For someone to know how to do all this is just a talent, a perfection, fenomenal. All my respect to a young man like you
That was AWESOME! Can't believe how greatly skilled he is!!! Great Job!
Wow, your skills are amazing, so inspiring. I would definitely hire you for my tiny home project in the near future.
Your skills are top notch, and you're very talented. What a great build. Glad that I find your channel.
Not only can he build anything, he knows how to film and edit! Impressive!
😅 I’ve had LOTS of practice. So glad it paid off!
Yes. Very impressive 👏🏽
@Glenys Jury No doubt! I had a boot on my foot a few months back and damn sure couldn't climb up the back of a van. But then again, he has determination, drive, and youth on his side, whereas, I do not !!
I dont know what is more impressive. The great work hes done, or the fact that he did it while wearing a leg brace. Well done👍🏽 👏🏽
I think this is so amazing! Great work!❤
You did such a good job young man I have no idea how I ended up watching this but I am thankful that I did it's good to see that there's still young men like yourself that like to work with their hands and reap the rewards.
You have done an amazing job there mate , some really good ideas and well thought through, I will be taking some of your ideas and applying them to my van, excellent job
Excellent! What a sleek finish. I think everybody wants you to make their home vans look like this.
This is an amazing talent. You are well rounded on the skill of each tool use and all different techniques.. Amazing.. We need more young men like this..
This guy can do anything....continues to impress me
This was satisfying, for sure. But, it was just carpentry. You video game kids need to get out and learn a trade. It's not unusual. It's done everyday, all around you.
I’m 51 and I’m so tempted to learn carpentry from scratch. I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity just to learn.
Just an Awesome guy.
I had water leakage under my sink in the kitchen. Now it is all ugg, and molded. Trying to find some one to fix it. This guy is so talented, I’m amazed of what he all can do 😮
I love this van life idea .. although I'm not sure i want my bathroom in the kitchen area and as small as this one. I would have to have a separate shower and toilet area. It wouldn't look right taking a shower and walking out naked, especially if I had company to stay the night. This is really nice though. I love it!
WOW!!!! What an amazing young genius!!!! You’re absolutely everything wrapped in one person!!!! Beautiful work and totally built to perfection!!! Great job!!!!
I love the end result...it's so amazing... Wonderful job again 🙌🏼🔥
Your skills are on another level. Great build. 👍🏽
Enjoyed watching you at work. Exceptional talent! Great work!
This man is like Noah, building his Ark. He has every single skill needed to complete his work. MAJOR RESPECT!
I was thinking the same thing
this. archetypal man
Yes! Excellent comparison. This man's an artist. I've always imagined how it was Noah built an ark of its recorded size.
He's a jack of all trades. I was wondering if he did a course for van or tiny house construction or he's a carpenter and added the extra skills as part of the job or did a housing construction course or self taught etc? Whichever is the case he makes it look easy and his work is excellent. There was a lot more work involved than I thought. The aesthetic result was well worth all the effort. Well done.
His skills have had huge leaps. The first few looked good these latest are next level. Keep it coming
Thanks for showing us the possibilities of what can be done by someone with talent and attention to detail.. it is lovely work that you do.. The owner I am sure must be happy!!😊😊
You're a truly gifted Carpenter and your craftsmanship is exceptional .
This was so captivating to watch, I literally watched the entire video without skimming, and that says a lot for a 25 minute video, as I tend to skim a lot with build videos. This guy literally did everything by himself and did a damn good job! My man is a Jack of all trades!
Indeed! including all of the Ads.😊
Definitely more than gifted
I tip my hat to this brother, he definitely has some skills. 🔥🔥
This guy is the real Deal. He's amazingly talented. I'm wondering how many engineering degrees he has. Great job man!
Extremely impressive I love the design I love the colors that you have chosen I love the creativeness, you’re very talented man, I hope all the young men will do exactly what you do work with your hands and create something unbelievable, very impressive, very talented young man, God bless you and keep you well, keep the good work
Most Builds on Clip-Share only show completed mobile homes. This video shows how fun they are to build if you can work with your hands. Very inspring and cool to watch!
Absolutely lovely, well done it looks great!
Hi, it’s amazing you’ve done all this by yourself. Usually you see one person building the floor, painting, putting in the cabinets, electrical and plumbing. But you have knowledge of all if this. Putting in floors,etc. amazing. God bless you in your continued success.
So let me get this straight... this dude knows design/architecture, carpentry, electric wiring, welding/soldering, plumbing, painting AND construction?
So many skillsets to do something like this solo. Amazing work.
Edit: Not to mention the Clip-Sharer skills to create this video.
@ReddGal I already know how to do all this, mostly from google/youtube.... I also fix my own vehicles and appliances the same way. *shrugs*
@Alcoholic Nerd oh you think you can master all these skills from Google? Ok, show us your van conversion 😅
Me too! But then again I'm 76 years old. I'm guessing he work for a high end Coach builder.
So so talented. Well done on making an amazing build. True craftsmanship.
This is incredible work!
I’m so amazed at your skill set. I wish I had even a few of these skills.
Am always looking forward to what the results will
This is beautiful 😍❤️
This reminds me of my grandpa. I wish I'd paid attention to what he was always trying to teach me when I was a kid. I'd hang out with you Sharrief and work for free just so I could learn a tenth of what you know!
The skills used to execute this job of transforming a van into a mobile home is phenomenal. He was the plumber, the electrician, the welder, the interior designer, and the carpenter. We need to see more people like him. Keep shining.
@Repent and believe in Jesus Christ YEP this young man has Character. Thank the Lord
Repent to Jesus Christ “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
1 Timothy 6:12 NIV
He is very talented
Exactly what I thought.
Don’t forget, video editor if he doesn’t have one💯🎥
I really enjoyed this. I love how you walk us through everything. Very interesting.
Do love a good van build from start to finish, got to say u done a outstanding job on your van 👍how many days did it take to do??
I'm in awe! His skill level at his age is phenomenal!
I can't even begin to say which part of this video I liked the most I am a 60 year old woman and I've always done everything for myself any house I owned I did all the work myself inside and out sure would have been be nice if I had somebody that knew how to do the things that could have helped if I had a young man like you back in my day. The things we could have done and the places we could have gone. And you're cute too 😉brother you inspire me to keep on doing what I still do..The Most High certainly Blessed you 🙌🏽.. love it.. how much does something like that cost?
