Catherine and Chris have been living nomadically in their lorry (box truck) conversion for four years and are loving the freedom and functionality it offers them.
“Florry the Lorry” is quite spacious (for a tiny house), and is covered in honey-colored wood that gives it a warm cottage feel. They have a wet bath, fixed double bed, L-shaped couch for lounging, and a comfortable-sized kitchen with a double oven!
Make sure you read our Q&A with them after the photo tour to hear all about what led them to live tiny and what their favorite — and hardest — parts about the lifestyle are.
Eric and Marissa always wanted to travel, but their non-remote jobs were holding them back. Once the couple figured out ways to manage a couple of Airbnbs and a rental van, they found the freedom to enjoy life on the road!
Their camper sits on top of a flatbed truck and has all kinds of amenities, like a wet bath (with a Natureś Head composting toilet), a fixed queen bed over the cab, and an awesome little kitchen that makes it easy to cook great meals. Enjoy the tour!
Vaughn, like so many others, was ready to stop wasting money on LA rent month after month. He took the plunge and bought a box truck which he has made into a fantastic home — and he dreams of someday building his own shipping container house.
Inside his big green machine you’ll find a spacious shower with a dry flush toilet, and what he considers the quickest bed set-up in a vehicle ever — his Murphy bed which flips down in under 3 seconds.
Vaughn says he wants to be an inspiration to other men of color that they, too, can enjoy the travel/van/truck lifestyle. Enjoy his video tour below!
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.
These are tiny houses built atop classic farm trucks in Australia. They’re some of the most amazing house trucks I’ve ever seen.
Rob Scott, of Hollyburton Park, has been building studios on the back of old farm trucks over the past few years. The housetrucks offer the extra space you might want to use as a backyard office, guest house, children’s rooms, or anything else you might be able to think of. Would you consider one of these tiny house trucks for yourself? Personally I think it’d be pretty awesome to get to live in one. How about you? Either way, please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!
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!
