Nothing is impossible in the name of love. Not even turning an old delivery truck into a cozy and dreamy home! After buying an old bread lorry delivery truck for £3,600, the inspiring couple, Martin Hill and Iona Stewart, was able to travel around Europe without having to fly or use the trains!
Martin Hill and Iona Stewart shelled out a total of £25,000 after buying and renovating the 28 feet old delivery truck. It took the couple how many months to transform the delivery truck into a place they can proudly call as their home. The couple believes that the 4 months it took to build their home was all worth it.
The two sweethearts met on the slopes of the French Alps while snowboarding. Martin and Iona will return to the French Alps together ‘within’ their new home to celebrate their ever-growing loving connection. “I was thinking about buying a huge American RV approximately four years ago after a few too many beers,” Martin recalls when asked what prompted him to create their unconventional house.
“We bought the lorry in May this year. We spent four months working on it full-time.”What makes their new home even more special for Martin and Iona is the fact that both of them invested their heart in its renovation. Martin took responsibility for the construction works while Iona took charge of making their new home sleek and beautiful.
“We did everything ourselves,” Martin said, taking pride for the masterpiece they have created. “It’s amazing what you can do. We are not exactly slumming it.” Looking at the photos of their new home below, who would say that their cozy den used to be a delivery truck? Despite their limited space, Martin and Iona were able to put up a comfy and homey living area.
Their modest home also includes a tidy and well-designed tiny kitchen with enough space for all of the herbs, spices, and utensils that one may require. Furthermore, their limited space did not prevent them from having a large double bed and a custom closet. Their chamber is even decked out with framed works of art. They even have a shower and toilet that are both small but fully functioning!
Martin and Iona sold their apartment in Nottingham, England, and hit the road to experience Europe’s breathtaking scenery. The inspirational pair is now traveling ‘within’ their house, saving them a lot of money on hotel and flight expenses.
There is nothing more beautiful than two people who do not only love but also share their dreams with one another. Cheers to the lucky couple who conquered their dreams with each other right by their side. May Martin and Iona’s relationship remind all of us what #RelationshipGoals are truly about.
