Portable Living – Mini House on Wheels

IN Life Purpose & Income

I can dream can’t I? I’d love to have an easily-portable “home on wheels”. Downsize my life to one that can fit in a tiny space.. I love, love, love that.. the freedom to live and travel and have “options”, to not be bound to mortgages and leases… ahh…bliss.

I probably won’t be able to get all the things I found today but I’m going to start collecting different ideas, buy a van, and build some kind of mini-home and I think it’s a good idea to get some layout ideas and start gathering a collage of different options :)

Actual Vans I’m considering buying for my Mini House on Wheels:

Sleeping Ideas

a comfy place to sleep..(beds)

Clothes & Wardrobe Ideas

Office Ideas

Food Preparation / Kitchen

Toilet / Shower / Bathroom

Layout Ideas

Storage Ideas

and storage space for everyday things..


  • Compost.
  • Solar-power electricity.
  • Hmm.. tank water possible? :)

And on the roof, “somehow”, or in the back or side window, I’d like to have my “portable garden”.. at least being able to grow some fresh food or herbs, somehow “hidden” and protected from passersby & the elements/ high-wind.. maybe a greenhouse enclosure roof – I haven’t solved my problem yet, as I just came up with the idea.
