House-Box One First Horsebox Conversion by England’s HouseBox

Last week we showed you Helga, a gorgeous handcrafted horsebox conversion by HouseBox.

Today we bring you House-Box One, the very first house truck built as a home for Dean and Hannah, who have kept converting these trucks for others wanting to live tiny through their business, HouseBox. The name “HouseBox” is just a clever spin on the UK English term for a horse transportation vehicle: “horsebox.” But now instead of moving equines, it’s housing humans!

Take a video tour of the home and get more information about HouseBox below.

Beautiful wooden interior. The front door is great!

Love the chicken wire on the cupboard doors.

Door to the wetroom. Look at the craftsmanship.

That wood burning stove is just the cutest!

    Not bad…very rustic interior.

    No matter whether you are rich or poor, no matter what we possess, but what really matters is to leave a mark a positive trace of our existence, it is a good example for other, while your life goes to “Swollen Sails”…

    They are living such an amazingly sufficient existence and seem to really have joy in their life! I love it! Would like to know exactly how they did the water filtration system. I got it but would like a bit more information on that part. I am going to be off grid with rainwater and need to do the same.
    I didn’t see how large their catchment is. Bravo for these two!

      They might be willing to share those details if you contact them via their website 🙂 Best wishes for your off-grid adventure!

    This is the third awesome English “horse box” conversion that I’ve seen. It is amazing how homey these can be. I’m sorry the UK is not connected to the continental US, because I’d definitely give having one of these some serious thought. Bravo, Dean and Hannah! Excellent job!

      Be a bit of an issue though… they drive on the correct side of the road unlike the US and most of the world… /rg&dfc

        Right you are! It would take a bit of doing. But, from the looks of them, it would be well worth the effort. Why is it some of the best things come out of the UK (horsebox conversions, cozy mysteries, tea, and bangers and mash!)?

          You have done an amazing job! Believe it or not, I just left Scotland on Wednesday, haha. But if I go back… 🙂 Whenever you have a new build, please send it our way!
