People are all about tiny houses and repurposing odd things into houses. It’s a way for those who may otherwise not be able to afford a home to own one. It also allows those who just love to be creative and want something different to have fun with their living space.
People have been turning many different things into homes.
There are homes made from barns, silos, lighthouses, storage pods, and more. One couple in the United Kingdom recently decided to take an old bread van and transform it into the home of their dreams.
One of the best things about this home is that it’s on wheels, and they can take it wherever they want. They also stayed on track with their small budget of just £20,000 (around $25,600). They really managed to pull it off.
Martin Hill, one of the owners and designers of the bread van home, said:
“About four years ago after a few too many beers, I thought about buying a big American RV. We bought the lorry in May this year. We spent four months working on it full-time. We are really lucky to not have to work and we did everything ourselves. It’s amazing what you can do. We are not exactly slumming it.”
When they first decided to make the van into a home, they planned to use it more like an RV or a seasonal home.
They like that they can travel anywhere with it and have everything they need and all the comforts of home. They found themselves using it so much, though, that Martin ended up selling his home and bar. Now, they are now living in the bread van home year-round.
The couple isn’t exactly roughing it in the RV, though. They shared some photos of the inside of it, and it looks as nice as many homes. It took them four months of full-time work to finish the RV. Martin said that they are lucky that they don’t have to work and are able to put in the time needed to complete projects like this.
It has a simple layout, but it works for the couple and allows them to make the most of the space they have.
They have a small kitchen with a nice hardwood floor and plenty of storage space in the cabinets.
In their living area, they have room for a stove to keep them warm during their winter travels. They also have a small couch and coffee table. There is also storage above the couch and on the sides of the living area.
The bedroom is also adorable and functional.
They chose light colors to open the room up and reflect the natural light. They even had a little fun with it and added some dinosaur bedding and wall décor.
They have a small bathroom with a sliding door that opens for access to the sink, toilet, and shower. They have hooks to hang their towels and clothing on and a nearby closet for clothing storage.
The outside of the bread van is sleek and stylish.
It looks more like an expensive RV than a repurposed food delivery truck. It has a charcoal color and looks really modern. It also has plenty of windows, so they can see everything when they are traveling.
While this lifestyle may not be for everyone, Martin and Iona are happy that they are living their dreams and were able to create the home they had envisioned. They didn’t have to go in debt to get it. Since they are living a minimalistic lifestyle, they don’t have to worry about money and are able to travel more and make the most out of their RV home.

They haven’t said that they plan to do next, but they have no plans of selling their home anytime soon.
