The Truck House is Kenya's first tiny home built on wheels. It is creatively built on an old truck and rises two storeys high.
The truck head has been artfully converted into an office with a beautiful skylight.
It has a lush compound with a manicured lawn, a colourful garden with an above-ground pool and provisions for a barbecue and bonfire.
The roof top which provides a great view of Kyumbi Hill and the surrounding area is the perfect spot to watch the sunset and stargaze.

The space
The decor is a mix of Afro and modern furnishing designed to give off a cozy feel. The warm lighting adds to the intimate vibe of the open plan living area, kitchen and dining area.
The loft is where the action is at. It has a queen size bed with fairy lights all around it, a projector and a powerful sound system for a cinematic experience. Natural light flows in through the large windows which give a clear view of the surrounding farmlands and Kyumbi Hill.
