Meet Helga, a1989 horse truck (or as they call it across the pond, horse box). It was recently given quite the upgrade by Somerset, England-based business . Now, instead of hauling horses, it houses a dream home instead.
"When Helga first arrived she was still very much a horse-box (complete with hay and poo!)," the company wrote in a with photos by . "We fully stripped the box, planed the timber back, and blasted and repainted the frame."
"With the addition of lots of engineering and customizations," they continued, "we built her back up from scratch and added heaps of off-grid wizardry behind the scenes so that her owners can truly be home, wherever in the world they choose to park up."
See the incredible interior for yourself—filled with the most gorgeous natural wood, the small space seems surprisingly open thanks to thoughtful design.
A full kitchen contains a stove, mini fridge, and plenty of cabinets.
Across the way is the most darling wood-burning stove— solar, water, battery, and load meters.
A rustic bathroom boasts a simple shower and compost toilet.
In the back, seats double as storage, as do stairs leading up to the lofted bed.
Hidden on the side of a step are controls for amp and subwoofer volume; the speakers are in the main living area and above the bed.
Framed by tree branches, the sleeping space would seem dark and cramped, were it not for the skylights.
The details are simply stunning.
There's even a large deck for entertaining. And it looks as if you might even be able to take advantage of the roof for extra storage space.
A video tour is on the way, from The Indie Projects. Here's a sneak peek:
But as a few commenters have pointed out, all that wood adds a whole lot of weight. And while House-Box is careful to select the smartest materials possible—for example, the worktop is light-for-its-size sequoia—it's more of a "moveable home" than a vehicle intended for continuous travel.
So tell us, would you live in a home like this?
