Tiny houses aren’t just for living. They can also be for hobbies and careers too. That’s why this husband helped build a tiny writing cottage for his author wife.

She’s an author of several books and desperately needed space of her own to create a distraction-free environment from her family, dog, phone calls, and everything else that was interrupting her from her writing projects.

Lucky for her, her husband is an artist in his own right. A very talented carpenter. And he was willing to help her dreams come true as you’ll see below.

Guest Post – WWOOF Gypsy Caravan Tiny House by Bianca Voyer

We are a fruit orchard and alcohol maker in Quebec, Canada. We’ve decided last year to start participating with WWOOF.

WWOOF is an organization where people from around the world decide to come help on farm while getting to discover a new country.

We host them, giving them somewhere to live and something to eat and in exchange they work with us in the orchard for 5 days a weeks, 5 hours a day and then they have 2 days of break to visit our country.

I’ve been wanting to share this man’s tiny dome home for a long time so now we’re here.

It all started in 2011 when Steve visited his friend in northeast Thailand on their mango farm.

Thanks to his friend and their family’s help, he was soon able to build most of it in only six weeks time for less than $6,000.

The details like doors, interior, landscaping, and such took a few more weeks of labor and another $3,000.

So all-in-all, it only cost him about $9,000 and less than a few months to complete. And now he gets to enjoy 500 sq. ft. of bliss. Debt-free.

Right now I want to show you this incredible and lightweight Taku-Tanku tiny house on wheels created by Stereotank and Takahiro Fukuda that you can tow with a bicycle, on foot, or even with a boat.

It’s great because it’s designed to be made from two 670 gallon water tanks which of course can be recycled. And, it’s really easy to assemble, too. The tanks are connected by a rectangle of wood.

How about that? A micro home that you don’t have to spend 1-2 years building… And you can tow it with a bicycle if you wanted to!

If you’ve been looking for a ready to move into tiny home that you can live in full time, this might be it. Either way, I’d love to read your thoughts on it in the comments below and whether or not you’d live simply in this model full time (I would).
