golden egg

client: Jerome

2019 ford transit cargo high roof


The “Golden Egg” was a project we started game-planning 6 months prior to the beginning of the build-out. It began with a stack of hand-sketched drawings our client Jerome shared with our team one afternoon over a cup of coffee. Jerome’s van would be his full-time home, and an opportunity to see the entire USA while chasing beautiful weather and leaving, in his words, “once temperatures drop below 40”. Often called “his dream van”, Jerome knew he had wild ideas and wasn’t afraid to share them with us.

Our slate was Jerome’s brand new “white gold” Transit - the newest, tallest and longest available. Since Jerome wanted the complete off-grid capabilities, we began with mounting both a LP and grey water tank below the van - powering his kitchen range and fireplace. From there we designed his unique interior, based off the components he desired including a pull-out foosball table built on 72” rails and leveled to perfection (Jerome often competes in foosball tournaments).

Jerome’s desire to entertain friends while traveling meant keeping spaces flexible. This was done by combining the sofa with a hidden toilet, hiding a shower pan underneath bamboo steps, and installing the fridge/freezer on slide-out rails to tuck beneath the bed when not in use.

We finished the project with boho’s signature red cedar t&g, bamboo floors and dimmable LED lighting - before anointing the “Golden Egg” as our most challenging build to date.
