Sandy’s 112 Sq. Ft. Yellow Box Truck Tiny House

This 112 Sq. Ft. Yellow Box Truck Tiny House and Office is a guest post by Sandy Caswell – share yours too!

This big yellow truck was born a 1998 E350 Ryder Moving Van with a Triton V8 under the hood and a 16 foot box. My husband, sons and I converted it to my mobile home/office.

We added a 30 inch patio with fold down steps onto the back. After we insulated and paneled it, the interior dimensions are 7.5 x 15 feet = 112.5 sq. ft.

It is wired for electric but there is no running water. I discovered that by cutting my hair short, I can wash it and my entire body in 1 gallon of water warmed in the microwave oven. To go to the bathroom, I use a 6-gallon pail, lined with a heavy black plastic bag into which I scoop cedar shavings.

I live in it about 6 months out of the year, traveling from festivals to glamping rallies and visiting friends and family. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

    Nicely done! It looks just perfect for what you need it for.

    Cool! Nicely done…I love the white shelves and the white interior. The entrance is so beautiful! This is a great idea!

    Where is the tiny house interior? All I saw was some form of art expression or furniture.

    • Bernadette Zeender July 30, 2016, 3:50 pm

      I agree with you, Liz. I was disappointed.

        This looks like it could be interesting, but I wish there was more about the layout, instead of the closeups of the art and decor.

    Cute place for your type of on-road-business. Love the little door to the bed. It conjures up magic with the herbs, cauldron and brooms.

    I like it although I would need to have more windows. Love that you put in barriers on the shelves so that everything stays put when you travel. I miss those in most tiny houses so you would have to stash everything before you move.

    Very nice. Love the ivy on the broom motif. The whole thing looks homey and a nice space to be in. Very good!

    Maybe a drawing of the floor plan would help us envisage the layout and use of the space.

    Sandy: Nice work on the inside and all the knickknacks that are familiar to me. Love your cauldron too. Although the coloring on the outside is not for me, but suits you! Nice job!

    So great house in a truck!
