California-Styled Wooden House Truck in Wales

“Attracted by Folkestone’s connection with H.G. Wells, Heather and Ivan Morrison constructed a mobile Science Fiction library, Tales Of Space And Time in the style of a 1970s Californian House Truck.

Made popular in America during the Hippy movement, these house trucks, similar to Gypsy caravans, are a symbol of freedom and a nomadic self-sufficient lifestyle. Following this tradition the Morison’s version is hand built using Douglas fir from their arboretum in Wales onto a 1955 Green Goddess, ex army fire engine.…”
