Repurposed Horse Trailer in Taylors Mistake, New Zealand.
Contributed by Chris Stead
“The Truck” (as I refer to it) is a modified horse transporter. It’s surrounded by multi-million dollar homes, but fits in just as well as the homes around it. In addition to the truck itself (which boasts 3 sleeping areas, galley kitchen, bathroom and a lounge) I have built a separate sleepout, connected by wooden decking and stone paths. I live there year-round and love it!
It sits obviously in a coastal position in the South Island of New Zealand in an area known as Taylors Mistake — so named after the skipper of a ship in the 1800s mistook a gap between two headlands as being the entrance to the nearby Lyttelton Harbour and beached his ship there.
Brand New inspired. Got this small piece done during my gap year in New Zealand. I learned so much about myself and the world during my time overseas, this was a small gift and reminder to myself to not forget, and to never give up.
