The self-build project is finished! We can now live in Horatio

I say that Horatio our self-build campervan, is finally finished, but to be exact, he is finally livable. There are a few things left to do, mostly minor but we couldn’t wait any longer.

So, we worked out that to build our self-build campervan it has taken 5 months. Which, with variable days off it worked out to be approximately 44 days at 10 hours a day. Therefore, it has taken Nik roughly 440 hours to build Horatio.

Cost so far is:-
Purchase Price, vehicle repairs, service etc. £4590.83  For the full details of this see Meet Horatio, our self-build, Tiny Home
