Inside A Truck House That Has Awed Netizens. (Photos).

In Kenya,BBC presenter Ian Wafula was among the pioneers who embraced the idea of truck houses.Wafula took six months to construct a two-storey building on an abandoned truck.He used cheap materials,including premade panels,to set up the structure.To improve its aesthetic,Wafula fitted the interior with exquisite features,including a big screen,a bedroom in the loft,and a barbeque area.The first step in converting a truck into a house involves removing the rear roll-up door.That is then replaced with a wall and regular man door for entering the truck from the rear.To moderate heat,the next step involves setting up insulated walls and ceilings inside the truck.Flooring is also critical.But most homeowners use cheap materials and carpets as floors inside the truck.

The Truck House is Kenya's first tiny home built on wheels.It is creatively built on an old truck and rises two storeys high.

The truck head has been artfully converted into an office with a beautiful skylight.It has a lush compound with a manicured lawn,a colourful garden

Kenyans reacts:

π‰πšπ¦πžπ¬: In Kenya,housing is affordable.Truck homes would be way more expensive and an inconvenience

πƒπšπ―π²: They do old school busses here in Canada and the USA

𝐄𝐦𝐒π₯𝐲: Motor home 🏑 is normally for travellers.Can be inconvenient in many ways.

𝐎π₯𝐒𝐯𝐞𝐫: Hii unaenda nayo kwa workplace yako na unapark hapo nje. Hakuna haja ya kuamka saa kumi kila siku in the name of going to work 🀣
