Did we mention that we printed a re-run of issue one? Our quarterly print journal Celebrating Alternative Living. From stories of #vanlife to cabins and tiny homes. It has been a year since we first launched this publication and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Lovingly designed and printed in the UK โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”ฅ buy your copy from our online store, link in our profile. We ship Worldwide too. #therollinghome #vanlife
The Rolling Home - this 1996 Volkswagen Transporter has provided the platform for most of our creative work. It used to be a very sorry looking panel van, now I am happy as larry every time I look at it, sleep in it and drive it. We are no longer living in this van, yet it will always be an integral part of our lives. That's the power of a well designed campervan. From the start of 2018 I'm going to be focusing on designing and building vehicles like this. From full conversions to elements of compact interior design. Along with making our custom parts such as the demountable side ladder and high top solar brackets available through our online store. We will also be offering advice and fitting services in Cornwall, UK. If you are interested please do drop us an email. โœŒ๐Ÿป#therollinghome #onwards #vwt4 #selfbuilt #vanlife
Lauren sat on the white sand of 'Beady Pool' situated at the northern end of the small island of St Agnes. Named after the red beads from the cargo of ship wrecked nearby. When we received the films back from this camping trip we laughed because there was a fishing rod in nearly every shot. We did catch our first sea fish; two Ballan Wrasse. Like us they could have been a pair of lovers on an adventure of their own, so back to the ocean they went. We all get hooked at times in our lives. Let's hope that whatever is at the other end of the line decides to throw us back home too. This trip was a special one. ๐ŸŒฟ
The good news is that we also printed a sweet new batch of issue three. Our online store is now brimming with fresh copies and a bunch are heading out to our stockist as we speak. Bad news is I fitted a new rubber seal to our sliding door and it's making a mockery of the door alignment.

How can lines define the interior design of small spaces? Which is more important; material choice, dimensions, form, weight or build quality? From a design perspective the #vanlife movement offers valuable insight into human interior design. How our needs match, yet also differ in an incredible variety of designs and influences. #therollinghome #selfbuilt #vanlife
Thanks to all of the enquiries- we begged, borrowed and stole to bring you a reprint of issue One.

The kitchen needed a finishing touch. I have a bunch of this beautiful iroko left over from our floor. Planning on using this down time to finish a small line of wooden van accessories & furniture. Who would be interested? #therollinghome #selfbuilt #vanlife
We moved out of our van into a room two weeks ago. After receiving an offer for a short rental on a room back in Cornwall we were somewhat torn on how to spend winter. Admittedly the bleak weather made the decision a little easier. We are not sure how long we will be in the room, I guess as long as we enjoy it and it is financially viable. Most likely until we find the larger base vehicle we have been searching for the past few months. Something to park up on a piece of land and build a deck and veg garden.....Always having the van there to take over is really important. Adjusting to having a bricks and mortar home is strangely easy, yet I could fill a book on what I miss about waking up in the van. What we now know is that alternative living encompasses all parts of our time, not just where you choose to rest your head. We are continuing our mission to celebrate alternative living through the Journal. Exploring its diversity and appeal. Right now we are scheming to escape to a Ireland in a few weeks, but for now how amazing is a hot shower? #houselife #normalliving
We updated The Rolling Home site with a selection of articles from issues 1,2 & 3 of the Journal. If these don't quench your thirst for alternative living you can still purchase the print Journal and read it in all of its glory โœŒ๐Ÿป(ps restock of issue one next week ๐Ÿ”ฅ) Hit the link in our bio and follow The Rolling Home Tab to visit the site #therollinghome #alternativeliving #indiepublishing
Patagonia leads the way in our eyes; ethically speaking they are second to none - 'Repair is a radical act' is the story of the Patagonia Worn Wear Tour, a way of bringing new life to old, often extremely well used, items of clothing. Find the article in issue three and more info on the tour over on the Patagonia site โœŒ๐Ÿป#therollinghome #patagonia
Soon after arriving, Simon and Cรฉcile are busy cooking a ramen on the bonfire, a sure sign of their love of food, they are two trained chefs living out of a small van, pure and simple. This was back in June, come September we got to hang out again, spending a rad (but unsuccessful) day fishing. Thanks for the great times dudes โœŒ๐Ÿปhope your rolling again soon! @radiusandulna - ps They also wrote a fantastic article that you can find in issue three of the Journal ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ#rollinghomes #vanlife #alternativeliving
Our friends at Moy Hill Garden have created something very special. Back in 2015 they founded a CSA partnership (Community Supported Agriculture) after teaming together to purchase 17 acres of wild land on the west coast of Ireland. With a simple mission to feed themselves and local people. I met the guys a few years back and witnessed their dedication, knees deep in wet mud, living off the land and jumping in the ocean whenever they could. Since then they have planted over 12000 trees via their charity 'Hometree'. The project is currently running a crowdfunding campaign to purchase a further 60 acres, allowing them to develop the farm, offer a place for people to live/work and above all feel happy. This is not only an inspiring example of a group of people living alternatively for the benefit of themselves, but also to the benefit of the local community.
