Back in 2016, Lindsay was tired of the urban young adult scene of finding bars and drinking. After going to Austin with a friend and seeing tons of Airstreams, she made a 6 month plan to get her own — and then bought one three weeks later!
After about two years in the Airstream, she upgraded to a super neat 4×4 adventure rig on a flatbed truck. This housetruck comes complete with a spacious bathroom with shower and toilet — Lindsay says she has no problem admitting she’s not trying to “rough it.” She has her blow dryer and hair straightener and plenty of clothes. And that has set her up for success!
She was already working remotely before hitting the road, so now she’s able to “live everywhere” and make money while she’s exploring! Enjoy the interview from Tiny Home Tours below.
Tena lives and works out of her BleakHausTruk, an art & recording studio constructed with hand tools & 99% recycled/repurposed materials found mostly for free on the street or in the trash in San Francisco!
She has about 100 square feet in her 14-foot-long 1997 Isuzu FRR 14 foot that she’s put more than 8,000 miles on traveling around America. The space is completely off-grid, with solar electricity, gravity fed sink & stainless steel bath tub, propane stove top & wood burning stove and compost toilet.
“. I never knew I could feel such peace in a roommateless creative space to call my own. Sadie, my sweet pit mix, was also found on the streets & was similarly suffering from PTSD, so we have been healing happily together,” Tena wrote us.
She spent $13,000 on the truck purchase, conversion and engine maintenance since 2015. How amazing! Check out the photo tour of her bus below.

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.
This is Steve’s house truck, a horsebox conversion called the “Kaya Box” that features a distinctly Rastafarian-themed interior.
Steve shared his ideas with Dean, owner of HouseBox in England, who made them into reality! For those who don’t know, horseboxes are used to transport horses, but this one has been transformed into a beautiful, handcrafted home. Way to reuse! There’s black, red and yellow tiling in the kitchen and bathroom along with red, yellow and green trimwork on the exterior that would make Bob Marley proud.
Take a video tour (inside starts around minute 11) and read Steve’s testimonial on the last page. Enjoy!
This is Vincent the House Truck by HouseBox in Southwest England.
It was built for a customer, Imogen, who shared a testimony on the HouseBox website:
I love my truck conversion – there’s so much attention to detail & it’s really tailor made, from the snake tank for my corn snake to the fox door-knocker. I was consulted throughout the whole process & really enjoyed being able to pick out the exact look i wanted, from the hinges to the brass kitchen sink. I’ve never loved living anywhere as much as my House-Box & have had so many compliments on it – a security man at Glastonbury Festival called it the prettiest truck he’d ever seen!
It really is a beautiful build! You can take a video tour to get all the details about the inside and find the builder’s contact information on the last page.
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.
This is Helga, an absolutely amazing horsebox renovation done for a client by House Box in South-West England.
Helga is an off-grid tiny home with some absolutely stunning woodwork and handcrafted features. If you don’t like natural, rustic wood-edges, you won’t like her, but I was amazed at how cozy the inside of this house truck feels. It has a fully functional kitchen, great lounging space, and a loft bedroom with plenty of headroom.
Indie Projects did a complete video tour of the house which you can enjoy below (Subscribe to their YouTube channel here)! Get the contact information for House Box after the pictures.
