Living inside a truck may not sound like the most appealing of suggestions, but Joseph Tayyer’s incredible home is enough to convince even the biggest skeptic that mobile living can be beautiful. The Israeli animator has transformed a regular truck into an ingenious piece of modern design, equipped with solar panels and water tanks which help make this a desirable green home. This dream home is executed with beautiful carpentry skills and a creative vision, so take a look at the full gallery of images after the jump .
Tayyar’s change of lifestyle was originally inspired by a TV program about homes on wheels. He decided to utilize his skills to create his own modern residence, creating his home for approximately $225,000 over the course of several years.
The walls of the truck are seven inches thick, providing great insulation. Inside, the compact space incorporates a kitchen, bedrooms, a work and seating area, and a bathroom. Although the square footage may seem small, photos depict a spacious and calm interior, fitted throughout with wooden surfaces. Within the framework of a truly mobile home, energy supplies must also be transportable, so the roof is topped with photovoltaic panels to take care of solar energy, and water is provided via a tank.
Tayyar’s design is not only resourceful, but is also a creative reflection on contemporary sustainable living, which he hopes will become more popular. Could a community of simple-yet-stylish truck homes be a viable option for the future? A “village on wheels” is a dream of Tayyar’s, where residents could avoid the constraints of urban living and create a more dynamic lifestyle.
