Couple transforms old truck into unbelievable tiny home

2nd Nov '18 • By Georgia Budden

Many young people face a common dilemma today: “Should I save my hard-earned cash to buy my first home, or travel the world while I’m still young? This English couple decided that they wanted to have the best of both worlds.

I know what you’re thinking - this pair must be on rocket scientist or brain surgeon salaries, or at least be wealthy members of the royal family to afford to have it all. WRONG! With a lot of hard work and £20,000, they managed to transform this old truck into their very own mobile home that’s comparable to a brand new apartment.

Iona and Martin bought this delivery truck on Ebay for just £3,600, with the intention of using it to travel after turning it into a liveable space. The desire to explore the world is just one of the answers to a question that has been repeatedly posed in recent years - "Why aren't millennials buying homes?"

Not only did they fully fit out the interior, but the outside of the truck also got a much-needed upgrade!

The renovation took 4 months to complete, after the couple worked on it full time, with Martin doing most of the labouring and Iona being in charge of the beautiful interior design.

They have plenty of bench space, a stove and oven to prepare their food while travelling. Not only are they saving money on accommodation, but they can cut costs on having to eat out while adventuring through Europe!
