The work needed to make the truck inhabitable for the couple’s adventures on the road put them back about $25,000.

It might seem a steep price to pay for renovations. But when you consider that the cost of an actual house in their Nottingham neighborhood typically runs upward of $250,000, the couple managed to pull this off for quite a bargain.

The couple made the most of their materials, reusing extra pieces to outfit the truck with storage.

Doors are used to partition off the space, making it feel bigger than it is.

The living space boasts a minimalist look.

The bedroom looks like any other ordinary bedroom but features hidden storage to help the couple store their things without making the space look cluttered.

Every piece in the living space is necessary for comfort, utility, or storage — and, sometimes, all three at once! The couple put careful thought into each and every item in the truck.

For that reason, they were able to fit everything they need, including a full kitchen with ample storage.

The outside of the truck even got a makeover. With the last piece finally ready, the couple has taken off with their bread truck dream home to have plenty of adventures around Europe.

Iona and Martin recently moved into the truck full-time. They plan to travel around Europe and snowboard while living the minimalist lifestyle and saving money for whatever their next adventure might be.
