Rob trained as an architect at Melbourne uni in the early 90's but couldn't handle being stuck an an office all day so he bought a farm instead. Over the last few years he has been building gorgeous studio trucks and studio rooms for his family and clients. These trucks are fantastic extra spaces - just park it, plug in an extension cord and viola you have a beautiful room or house.
