The Vardo is designed to nest inside most truck beds. It can also be pulled on its own trailer. The material costs to build this structure are approximately $6,500, excluding additional air conditioning or heating.
This model is insulated and has enough room for a full-sized bed flanked by a couple of work surfaces. Underneath is 35 cubic feet of storage space. It lacks a kitchen or bathroom, so technically is not a "house."
We built the first model utilizing a recycled stained glass window in the front door.
Can I add air conditioning or heating?
Yes, a small ceiling a/c unit can be added to keep the house cool in any climate within the US. A heater also can be added to warm your cabin on cold nights.
What type of truck can I build this in?
These plans are designed with the most popular Ford 150 truck in mind. However, you can easily build it longer or shorter as needed to meet the requirements of your truck.
