Clare’s love of art immediately made her a kindred spirit! 

Clare wanted to go off-grid, to really experience people and places without having to worry about what was happening at home. And what better way to do that than to relinquish everything and take your home with you! Clare did loads of research and her passion for photography and nature played a pivotal role in developing her final quirky eccentric design. 

Although we had our work cut out in making it a reality, we had great fun making it both quirky and functional. Clare enjoys her cooking so lots of bench space was a priority, as well as the all-important spice rack.  The live-edged timber benchtops were made of beautiful Australian Cedar.  The sink was made from Clare’s antique French preserving pan, a little memory of the ‘big’ kitchen she left behind.  At one end, the bench top lifts up to reveal a secret bathroom!  Genius, Clare!   Functional extras are the Airhead marine composting toilet, and Maxxaire rain sensor roof vent that closes automatically if it senses rain. It all runs on an Enerdrive electrical lithium system,  plus 500w of solar on the roof to keep her off-grid

But the real challenge was in bringing some of Clare’s ideas to life.  Like the curved door to Narnia.  There are no rules to creativity and we are so happy that we ran with her idea of this quirky entrance to her new home!

6 months of living full-time in a Roaming Wild Campers;  I’ve travelled 10,000km (NSW, QLD, Vic and Tasmania) in my van and I love everything about it.

From the Maxxaire rain sensor vent to the Airhead compost loo, I am happy with my Mouse House. The extra insulation and lithium solar system has made my little house quite comfortable in all weather.
What I liked most about Roaming Wild Campers is that they were happy to listen to suggestions and carry out my design just the way I wanted it. As a result,  they made my tiny house in a van the special ‘Art on Wheels’ that it is.
