Cozy Bed in Tony’s Hornby Island Caravan

As far as the layout, there was careful thought given by Tony about his possessions- what to keep, what to get rid of, and of the things he kept, where they should go. There were specific spots built for specific things- lot’s of open storage under the bed for his many instruments, cd shelves, book shelves, a shelf for magazine folders for his papers and so on.” – Tiny House Blog

A Peek Inside a Hornby Island Caravan

It all started with the British version of Country Living magazine.  That’s where I first saw pictures of gypsy vardos and fell completely, madly, deeply… well I really, really liked them a lot.  Even the most simple caravans have such charm to them.  The ones I have visited are really the most lovely, warm, inviting little spaces I’ve ever been in.  And so I was hooked.  But still, it took a while for my interest in caravans to turn to thoughts of a career since I was pretty happy and comfortable making my living as a clay artist.  And then one day it just seemed silly not to make caravans, after all it combined so many of my interests and previous experiences in building, art and design.

So here I am building caravans, with the help of my husband Lawrence Nyberg, who lends a hand when it’s  needed, acts as a sounding board for my ideas and is a great support in general- he is a very fine luthier the rest of the time.” – Hornby Island Caravans-About us.
