Amazing Horsebox Conversions

January 27, 2017

Horseboxes are becoming increasingly popular for conversion. Creating quirky spaces to revamp and design to something completely different. We’ve all heard of renovating horseboxes into living spaces and coffee bars but how about a gin bar or soup kitchen?

Portable Gin Bar

Daniel James owns ‘The Wood Shed’ and recently spent one month converting a horse box for Betty Lou, a Brighton based company. The finished product is a stunning portable gin bar, equipped with multiple types of gins and even wines for weddings.

ThHorseboxe 1920’s style horsebox fits well with the company’s vintage image, Betty Lou are hoping to be able to use the portable gin bar for festivals, weddings and other vintage events.

Testing his carpentry skills, Daniel made all of the woodwork for the interior as well as renovating the exterior with new metalwork.  The finishing touches were added at the beginning of January.

The Wood Shed was set up in the summer of 2015. Originally creating bespoke furniture, Daniel James then moved to creating comfortable and amazing conversion using only locally sourced products!

Pop-up Soup Kitchen

This is not the only horse box conversion happening at the moment. An Isle of Wright Charity are planning to revamp a horsebox into a pop-up soup kitchen. The plans include pop-up shelves to hold the produce and an upgrade to a commercial kitchen. All profits will be going back to the charity to support the homeless.

Once completed the horsebox should be available for festivals, including the Isle of Wright Festival, as well as fates and renting out for private hire.

Horseboxes are great for conversions and there are many happening right now! Do you know of any others, we would love to hear about them?
