Rob Scott dropped by our blog a few days ago and left a comment with a link. My jaw dropped when I clicked through and saw his truck studios made out of recycled materials.
I know you guys will love his work– It’s really one of a kind. The first thing I thought was: these are tiny houses built right into classic trucks! Before you leave, share your favorite thing about these trucks in the comments.

Rob Scott’s AMAZING Tiny Truck Houses (Plus Our EXCLUSIVE Interview w/ Him!)
Alex: So what inspired you to build these? Can you share some more of your story?
Rob: I always liked cubby houses and small spaces, more intimate and cozy.
So I wanted to bring the delight back into building and hated seeing those horrible prefab toxic boxes being used for granny flats in Australia.
They had aluminum sandwich panel walls, fluorescent lights, vinyl floor, aluminum windows, chipboard kitchens and so on…
So I decided to make a non-toxic romantic granny flat with as much natural timber and recycled material as possible.
As I was investigating portable bases, I found the costs were too high and that I could buy old trucks for half the price.
This way I could have my base and a way to move them all in one.
And, they are more romantic to my eye.
The first I built was on an old truck we already had sitting on our farm unused for many years.
When it was finished my daughter begged me to let her have it for a bedroom…..I relented….I’m building my fourth now and plan to start a trailer version very soon with a kitchen bathroom and loft for sleeping.
All our guests love them and some times I just go and sit in them as they are so lovely to be in…
I’m not sure what to do with them all.
I have sold one and cried when the couple said they would take it, yes I get attached to them (truck 2 in the pics ).
Maybe there is a rental market?
Or we need to start our own bed and breakfast.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to building more and better versions.
I can’t get over how awesome these are!
