Filipinos are known all over the world not only for their skills, diligence, and great attitude, but also for their creativity. In today’s post, we take a look at how three talented Pinoys put their creative juices into designing and making multi-purpose mobile homes.
One of them, a Pinoy based in the United States, converted an old school bus into a house on wheels. Meanwhile, the other two — both Filipinas — transformed old vans into tiny homes that they can drive anywhere, anytime they want!

Filipino-Made Mobile Homes for Living on the Road
GMA Network’s “Unang Hirit” program recently featured three Filipinos who created their very own mobile homes, based on a report by GMA News Online.
Savio Ilagan, a Pinoy firefighter based in the US, transformed an old school bus into a mobile home. It features a shower, bathroom, kitchen, and a two-level bunk bed. “Matagal ko na po kasing gustong mag-travel eh, habang nabubuhay nang simple at yung pakiramdam na free ka (I have always wanted to travel, living simply, and feeling free),” he said.
In the Philippines, Phoebe Leonor, a freelance makeup artist, has been staying in her van-turned-home for quite some time now. Her tiny home, which she has named “Choice,” includes a bed, a kitchen area, and a lounge area where she often works. The van also has a solar charge controller that she uses for electricity.
Similarly, Katrina Quisil, a single mom who works as a pharmacist during the day and a BPO agent at night, has turned a van into a mobile home. She shares that the van enables her to relax and recharge in-between jobs. What’s more, she can use it on the weekends for traveling or camping out with her family.
