I have a great love for small homes and portable homes, many of the DIY bus conversion homes are pretty good, but this one is tops in my books, it’s functional, it’s roomy, but it’s not too huge to drive, I could live in this.
I had to share with you this amazing box truck conversion home that was hand built by Joseph Tayyar who was tired of the hustle and bustle of the city life.
He had the idea in his head four years prior to making it a reality. He spent years planning and building it and did it all himself. Now he gets to enjoy living near the beach, traveling to the desert or even enjoying the city.
Now he’s completely free from property taxes and electricity companies.
His 11 yrs old daughter even has her own bedroom area in the back of the truck
The mobile home has it all: 2 bedrooms, an office area, seating for guests, dining room, kitchen, shower, and toilet.
There’s a large water tank (800 liters) and solar panels on the roof to keep it completely off the grid. Joseph is able to manage his career and work from his computer so he’s not confined to one particular geographical area.
His next goal is to purchase agricultural land to begin development of a village on wheels for others who want to live like this. This will be a place where they can grow their own food and exchange value with each other while coming and going as they wish.
View of Bedroom 2. Compact, cozy and light, thanks to the large window.
