We bought our dream home for just £23,000 – it can barely fit the two of us in but we couldn’t be happier

BUYING your dream home can be pretty pricey.

This couple decided their dream looked a bit different from the usual two-up two-down.

Liv and Lew started their massive project over one year ago when they bought a Mercedes van with the goal of transforming it into their home.

The duo had their work cut out, the vehicle was an empty shell, with nothing resembling a home inside.

After forking out £11k for the van, they added insulation, running water and finally, a bed.

Since they were doing to project on their own, it took time to come together.

Despite their original budget being £20k, Liv and Lew had already gone over that by the six month mark.

Liv said: "What helped keep our costs down was doing all the work ourselves."

The finish project ended up costing the pair £23k, but it was worth every penny as far as the couple are concerned.

They added a chic and modern kitchen area, complete with cool white cupboards and a small oven.

Spot lights in the roof give the van a much more cosy feel.

The raised bed area not only looks stylish but enables the DIYers to store their clothes and belongs.

Although the van is tiny, and the couple can barely stand up straight inside, the couple love their pad.

Viewers were impressed with the couple's skills: "Well done guys, great van for a great budget."
