Meet Jamie Nicoll, he travels around New Zealand in his 1960 J4 Bedford house bus while mountain bike riding for Santa Cruz. Jamie has converted this Bedford bus himself. Before it was his home it brought kids to and from school for 33 years. But its now kitted out with solar electrics, kitchen with gas for both hot water and cooking, lounge, 300 liter freshwater tank, bedroom and much more. It was so lovely meeting Jamie. I look forward to next time we meet! Picture on front of this video is done by: Max Schumann Music: Endless dancing on Gede pangrango ( ID 125) artist: Kielokaz album: Volcano
Amongst many other beautiful details, this housetruck has the coolest roof detail I have seen so far on my journey.
This tiny house on wheels is lived in full time and travels all around New Zealand doing the Extravaganza Fair.
I believe after seeing this housetruck, you will have difficulties saying you couldn’t live in a tiny home youself.
Or what do you think?
In this video you see and hear a little about New Zealands first Tiny House workshop. This workshop has been receiving coverage on varies medias including New Zealand Herald. The house is being built for the couple Leo and Tara. Leo is a DJ and a sustainability consultant at Why Waste. They have had help from Ben Garret which is the Director at Tiny Healthy Homes and Rosa Henderson an earth builder at Sculpted Earth and Brenton Stockman is a Freeman
The Extravaganza is a unique market/festival across New Zealand which is completely free.
You will find market stalls, arts and craft, food, musical entertainment and kids shows at the fair.
This is the group of housetruckers I have been traveling together with for the last one and a half months.

This is Half cab heaven. The passenger bus originally from wellington has been transformed into a beautiful home. What do you think about it? Feel free to share the video with your friends and family and show others that it is possible to live in a beautiful moving vehicle / tiny home
This couple travels around New Zealand making flowers and beautiful glass items in The Gypsy Fair. They were kind enough to let us see inside their home.
