BEAUTIFUL HOUSE TRUCK MADE FROM 85% RECYCLED MATERIALS
In this film, we take a tour of Adam and Sian’s beautiful off-grid tiny house truck, which was built using mostly reclaimed materials on the back of a 1969 Bedford. The house truck is full of light and space, with an open-plan kitchen, living and bedroom area and a fancy shower set-up on the back porch.
The couple describe the building process and the events that decided them on leaving a conventional home and city life to take up this much simpler way of living that they find more satisfying.
Thinking about showing one of our films at an event? Cool! Visit the Store for info about licencing.
KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM "BEAUTIFUL OFF-GRID TINY HOUSE TRUCK"
- Begin with asking yourself: What are my essential needs?
- You can build a home almost entirely with recycled materials – fence palings, old corrugated iron, fallen logs, found materials.
- Multiple functions provide plenty of space – the sofa is also storage for the solar battery bank; the stairs serve as storage space for clothes and general items.
- A “trap door” means the deck easily becomes a shower base.
- No chemicals have been used in the house: the ceiling is painted with “milk paint.
- With a small solar array and a panel that keeps you aware of usage, you are both connected to and limited by your energy supply, which makes you more mindful of your impacts.
- Anyone can do this – jump in!
