Place for a DIY van conversion near Zürich

Hello everyone!

I recently traveled to the States and rented myself an RV to go around.

The experience was amazing! So much so that now I'd like to convert some old van myself. However, before buying anything I'd like to plan properly, and the first point is where can I do it. Do any of you know of a place where it would be possible to do so?

I thought about doing the work in some blue line parking spot close to my apartment, but it's kinda inconvenient to work in the middle of the street. Plus there's the problem of the noise and I am planning to work on the van on Sundays!

Another option that came to mind was to rent some parking spot outside the center to avoid disturbing people with the noise, but I feel it's also not optimal.

Finally, I though of either asking some farmer access to some private space away from everyone and be do it there.

Any better option that I'm missing? Especially something where I could loan some of the heavy tools I'll need?

Thank you in advance for your time! Greatly appreciated!
Marcello

Rent a garage, or do it at work.

You cannot do such work on the street.

Re: Place for a DIY van conversion near Zürich

Search around there are a couple of pay by the hour garages. If your idea is to save money then this is the wrong country to do an "easy" conversion, your best bet is to rent some garage space (no work is generally allowed in normal parking garages) from someone who runs a normal garage or spray painter.
