The Manor: Gemma and Darryl’s HouseBox

This is “The Manor” built for Gemma and Darryl by HouseBox, a handcrafted horsebox-conversion builder in England.

We asked House-Box to convert our 1989 Layland DAF Roadrunner in to a liveable space for us to use as our touring home while we travel with our circus. House-Box took our ideas and created a beautiful home far beyond our expectations. Their use of natural light and design has made a relatively small space into a fully functioning home with plenty of storage and all the comforts a home should have. They fitted fantastic electrics and plumbing including 3 large solar panels and a gas heating pump for hot water. I would recommend the company for any type of conversion. Beautiful craftsmanship with plenty of vision and thought put into each design.
We love our home x Gemma and Darryl x

And yes, there’s even a bathroom! Watch the video tour to get all the details and find the builder’s contact information below.

Enjoy!

Fold-down back deck for relaxing or performing.

Lofted bed and it just need cushions for the bench seating.

Lovely tile-work in the kitchen. Great windows on the door.

The blue kettle makes the space. Wood burning stove.

      I can’t wait until they have another one! I have posted all the ones they have done to date (that are online, at least). I loved them, too!

    Absolutely marvelous work. I want to join the circus and get my own house-box. I am a huge fan of both. Thank you for sharing 💕💕

    I really like this build ! They did a fantastic job & there are a lot of practical features. The floor plan has a very open feel to it. Nice!
