A 31-year-old woman has turned her back on expensive rents and property prices - by living full time in a van. With an interior measuring just 13ft 2in long, 5ft 8in wide and 6ft 2in high, Eileah Ohning’s home is her Freightliner Sprinter High Top van. The photographic producer from Columbus, Ohio, has lived in her compact four-wheel home since May 2017.

Complete with a memory foam mattress, storage compartments, a desk and a camping stove, she even has plans to add in a shower, toilet and fridge. Eileah parks her van close enough to her workplace that she never needs to worry about the morning commute and showers at her local gym.

Not many people would go for a move as bold and unusual as this one, but when faced with astronomic sums for bills and rent in total, this seems like a perfectly acceptable option. Plus, she gets to travel whenever she feels like it, and has one of the most unique homes in the world! This shows that with a bit of research in tiny houses, a small investment and a lot of creativity, you can make your dream home yourself! Would you consider doing this?

Speaking of unusual homes, check out how this man turned a school into a dream home for the entire community. Spectacular!
