Yorkshire couple create stunning home by converting an old lorry trailer

This is the stunning home created by a young couple - using an old lorry trailer.

Marcus Williams and partner Helen Ambler claim their 'Lorry Lodge' is the UK's first HGV lorry trailer fully converted into a home.

They spent 18 months and £55,000 buying and converting the 44-foot-long trailer into a modern, spacious home which sleeps four and can be moved to any location.

The couple from Ripon, have lived in the lodge which is currently in a field near York but are planning to raffle it off to fund an even bigger project.

Engineer Marcus, 26, said: "We had originally planned to convert a van and go travelling but changed our plan. The idea of the a lorry appealed to us because of the space it would provide.

"It was quite a long process converting it but we are really pleased with the finished result. It's a stunning off-grid home which can be towed anywhere."

Marcus and Helen, who are expecting their first child soon, tested their DIY skills by renovating an old caravan before embarking on their lorry project.

They now plan to sell up to 4,000 £20 raffle tickets to raise funds for a bigger, yet unspecified project.

Marcus added: "It's a great opportunity to own your own off-grid home. Once it's raffled we plan to take some time out to plan our next project."
