Finding Paradise – From House Truck to Homestead
Molly and Al lived an incredible life together on the road before finding their own idillic piece of land to set up a small homestead in the South Island of New Zealand.
Perhaps what I love most about this couples story is that it shows an evolution of lifestyle. The couple started out living on the road in their house truck, before finding and falling in love with a small piece of land on the coast. For years, they lived on the land in their bus, and slowly began transforming the land into the incredible homestead that it is today.
The living structures surround the gorgeous courtyard area, which is filled with edible plants and herbs. Molly and Al area able to grow enough food on their small section to meet the majority of their needs.
The buildings are all filled with wonderful works of art, showing Molly’s creative flare. The home has a truly warm and cosy feeling.
The pirate flags which proudly fly over the couples section really add to the feeling that you’re in a world that is somehow secret and protected from the conventional world outside the gates.
