My Minimalist Housetruck Interior...

Some images of the interior of my much loved 1952 Morris Commercial Housetruck.
The rough basic 'box like' structure was built deliberately in stark contrast to the simple and elegant Japanese interior that I lived in for six wonderful years prior to The Flying Tortoise.
The rich golden tones of the woodgrain were a source of much joy and inner peace as I went about the process or living in such a tiny space.
There was only one window so I would position the truck to take advantage of the view or the sunshine.
The philosophical idea in minimalist terms was that I could only look out of one window at a time so therefore I needed only one.
There was too, a skylight. There was never more than one flower in the vase.
It was a time of much happiness, reflection, meditation and personal growth...

  1. The wood is beautiful. Wood soothes the soul.

  2. It's beautiful but where is all your stuff?

  3. I was much more of a minimalist then Frann but everything I had, even my golf clubs were away, out of sight, out of mind. There is a toilet, shower and refrigerator plus other necessities. More on stuff I had and where it was stored another time...
