Couple buys old truck and converts it into a beautiful apartment


They’ve transformed an old truck into a beautiful place to live!

For people who love to travel it would be a dream come true: converting a van or truck to be able to live in it and travel the world. A simple campervan isn’t good enough for these travellers. No, they’d love to be able to design their own home on wheels. This was the case for Iona Stewart and Martin Hall as well. This young couple from the UK transformed an old truck into a beautiful home.

The result is amazing!

Canary yellow

Iona and Martin bought a canary yellow truck for 3,600 pounds, which is about 4,000 euros. Both of them love to travel. Martin Hill had been living in a van for a couple of years already, but the couple wanted to find something where they could live together. That’s why they decided to buy the truck and convert it themselves. They were both unemployed at the time, so they could spend all of their time on the project and it shows. The result is amazing!

Fixing it up

The travelling couple converted the truck all on their own. According to Iona’s Facebook page, the outside was the most difficult part. They wanted to make it look like a true campervan and not like a truck with windows. They definitely managed to do that because the truck looks modern and fancy both inside and out. The entire transformation is said to have cost 20,000 pounds (22,500 euro). Because Iona and Martin did everything themselves, they could economise on everything as well. They did have to buy isolation material, a floor, furniture, a kitchen and a bathroom.

Home

It was important that the truck would be more than just a glorified tent on wheels. Iona and Martin wanted to make something really beautiful. They isolated the truck and installed a real kitchen and bathroom. They don’t just sleep on a mattress on the floor but have an actual bed, a wardrobe and a small living room with a sofa. Their home is more luxurious than most apartments! They’ve gone all out and it shows.
