Lightbulb Western Australia- Convert fridge trailer into house

Hi there, Im new to the site and looking for anyone out there who has converted something like this, Im looking at buying a 40ft refrigerated truck trailer and decking it out as a house, Im thinking loft bedroom for me, concertina divided room for my daughter, in line kitchen and combined bathroom/laundry, space at the back for storage but have no idea where to start (buying the trailer would probably be a good place I guess) Please if anyone has any pictures I could look at it would be much appreciated I have until August 2013 when my lease is up! sick of paying someone elses mortgage!
Thanks again

welcome to the forum, sounds like quite the project. for Ideas spend a few evenings on Racingjunk.com search living quarters trailers lots of big race trailers that can get the front figured out, then let your imagination finish the rear.

Default Conex containers also possible

I have seen various sites that also have pics & ideas for using truck boxes or conex containers. One place to look for ideas is : Relaxshacks.com
Good luck with your venture.
