This is the story of how a couple took a box truck and turned it into their very own DIY tiny house. I guess you can also just call it a house truck, right?

In the video tour and interview below you’ll get to not only see their entire tiny home but you’ll also get a peek into what it’s like to live simply in a custom built house truck.

When this video was made they’d been living in it for about six months while traveling on the road. Would you ever live tiny in a house truck? Let us know in the comments. And either way please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

During the 1970s Roger Beck was one of the first pioneers of the house truck movement on the west coast of America.

He used them as a home during travels throughout the United States, according to his interview on Ivan Morison’s article Tales of Space and Time, where he interviews Roger.

According to Ivan’s article, “A Tale of Space and Time” he held a workshop in Eugene, Oregon, in January of 2007.

This house truck used to be an old horsebox which was converted into this wonderful living space.

It resembles a gypsy caravan in some ways while keeping a vintage feel.

It’s currently at Swallowtail Hill Farm and can sleep up to four people.

Yes–you can rent a few nights in it! It’s beautiful inside and out.

Inside you’ll find fresh Samburu blankets and bed linen.

Plus the house-truck has a small kitchen, refrigerator, bathroom with shower, and is surrounded with views of wildflower meadows, a pond, and woods.
