Tucked away in an idyllic quarry in the Welsh hills, this tiny abode began its life as a Bedford TK horsebox, the local term for a horse trailer. Now it’s vacation home that’s both sustainable and cozy. Read more about House-Box and just try not to fantasize about waking up to that lush view.
From the front, the House-Box resembles its former life as horsebox. The original wooden slats are still intact and the truck screams 1970s. But inside, the 120-square-foot space its all about modern comfort in a super tiny package.
What the House-Box lacks in space it makes up for in functionality. It contains a double bed nestled inside the truck’s cab, a full kitchen (a dining table is stored underneath the couch), a gas-powered indoor shower, and a small wood stove to keep the space toasty at night.
Thanks to multiple windows in several shapes and sizes, the interiors feel more spacious than what the square-footage would suggest.
The main entrance is located at the back of the truck. An elevated, canopied deck makes for the perfect locale for breakfast a la mode.
The House-Box is entirely self-sufficient. It contains its own rainwater harvesting system with a filtration system, which means there’s no need to bring bottled water. Solar panels on the top of the truck and wind turbines power the lights both indoors and outdoors, electrical sockets and the integrated sound system.
