This epic DIY truck house is 8′ long x 6′ wide and sits on the flatbed of a 1996 Ford F-350.
It was designed and built by Timmy from Truck House Life as a full-time home on wheels for his adventurous lifestyle in Alaska.

Living Off-Grid In A DIY Overland Truck House
The cabin on wheels is insulated with spray foam and it has two systems for heat: a diesel Webasto heater, and a Kimberly woodstove.
The kitchen is super compact, with a water jug and hand pump tucked behind the stovetop and oven. He uses a bowl to collect the used water and this simple system means he doesn’t have to worry about pipes and pumps freezing. Timmy also has a cutting board that can be hooked onto the side of the oven when he needs a bit of space for food prep.
The rest of the truck camper is a giant lounging space with two full-length couches. One of them is a jack knife sofa that quickly folds down into a double bed, and the other is a DIY slat bed that can be pulled out to create a more comfortable double bed.
Timmy has been living full-time in his truck house for over a year, and it allows him to get outside to kayak, ski, snow machine, and even sleep in parking lots when his band, The Shoot Dangs, plays shows all over the state.
