Fold-away bed enlarges this well-crafted van conversion

Contrary to popular stereotypes, van conversions can be extremely well-designed and well-crafted. Professional carpenter Ryan Wells of Rydawell Woodworks created this artfully done renovation of a Dodge Promaster van, which features a kitchen, shelving and a fold-down Murphy bed.

Best of all, it's also Wells' work vehicle, which allows him to travel for his work contracts, saving him money on accommodations while working further afield. The exterior is unremarkable enough that it can be parked almost anywhere, but the interior features high-quality hardwoods for the beautifully done cabinetry and counters, some of it recycled from Wells' woodshop.
