180 Sq. Ft. Gypsy Tiny House on Wheels

This is a 180 sq. ft. gypsy tiny house on wheels.

Outside, you’ll notice the fun color combination of lime green and bright blue siding. Off the front of this house is a quaint covered porch area. White french doors lead into the main living area and are flanked by two lantern lights.

When you go inside, you’ll find knotty pine walls and hardwood floors. A small white table and two chairs give you a place to eat and work and an additional lounge chair provides a place to sit and relax. If you don’t like loft beds you’re in luck because this one is in a little nook with under-bed storage instead and it doesn’t require steps or a ladder to hop in. The bathroom has everything you need: shower, toilet and sink, and the kitchen has a few cabinets, a sink, and a hot plate for warming food or making tea. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Really nice use of space. For those people who don’t want a loft (and are willing to make sure the bed is made every day), this could be very doable.

    • Theo March 6, 2016, 2:19 pm

      And for those who do not want to make their bed every day, a curtain to hide it, or perhaps a door.

      I like this one a lot more than about 99% of all I see here.

      • Marcy March 7, 2016, 7:27 am

        I was thinking curtain, too. Another advantage to having curtain would actually be when you’re sleeping. It could double as a light backout.

  • Lisa E. March 6, 2016, 11:32 am

    What are the dimensions and how much to build?

  • Brendan March 6, 2016, 1:59 pm

    I really enjoy this setup especially the non-loft bed. Are there blueprints available for this or did you free-build it. Tremendous job.

    I’m wondering how you access the storage under the bed because I see what appears to be a large bookcase at the end of the bed. Also, it is most definitely attractive inside, but I would like to see a bit more productive use from 180 sf, even with acknowledging that it is not a sleeping loft. For my personal use I would have put a single glass panel door to allow for more usuable wall space. I like the lightness inside without painting it all white, very natural looking.

    • Marcy March 7, 2016, 7:34 am

      My thoughts exactly. Whenever I see tiny houses with double glass doors, I always immediately think about the lost wall space where one could put a bookcase or loveseat or table or. . .

      The doors do look attractive and let in lots of light, but a few windows could help that without taking up a very limited tiny house resource – uninterrupted wall.

    If they used a smaller door the area on both sides could be used for storage or bookshelves. The bathroom sink is bigger than the kitchenette sink which makes no sense to me. Overall, this is a cute little, functional home with no loft that you can stand up in throughout! This home should be an easy sell!

  • Jacki March 6, 2016, 4:57 pm

    Really like this one without the loft. Works better for older folks :) I agree with all of the comments on improving use of the space and I too am wondering about the dimensions, cost to build and outside appearance. Great job!

    When I read that one wouldn’t be needful of a ladder to get into bed, I kept that thot tucked to the side. When the pix was reached, couldn’t help but laugh. The top of the mattress is a couple inches higher than the doorknob. At age 20, I was five-two. Following back surgery this current decade, my height was 4’11”. Oops!!

    • Sandi B March 6, 2016, 10:05 pm

      Actually you could make a custom set of little steps to go in front of the bookcase for when you wanted to use the bed and you keep them tucked away in the shower out of the way, or outside. There is always a way to deal with minor situations. That matter you could use a folding little step ladder you can pick up at any big box store — Costco has a nice one that has rails and a top handle for safety. For a small space they did a great job.

    • Marcy March 7, 2016, 7:40 am

      Kate, I would definitely require some agility to get into that bed, but if it were your house, you just wouldn’t build a platform where that bed is. You’d lose some storage space, but could more easily get to the bed.

  • Kristina H Nadreau March 6, 2016, 9:08 pm

    I like how they built to accomodate their priorities. comfortable sleeping and a functional bathroom are nicely done. they obviously did not need a real cooks kitchen and so that is how it is designed. I like the double door entrance. Is there a space for a tiny fan over the bed to keep the air fresh while sleeping, if the window does not open. The window AC is much less efficient than the split units. also the split units do not obscure the window.

  • Gabrielle Charest March 7, 2016, 2:23 am

    Cozy space. Love the exterior colors!

  • Cindy March 7, 2016, 5:41 pm

    Another option on the bed and bookcase…lower the height of the bed and having drawers underneath.Overall,I could live in it just tweek it for my needs-single door,bookcases\storage on each side and a folding wall table and chairs😸

  • Dianne Longson March 9, 2016, 11:25 pm

    No loft – a definite plus from my perspective. I agree with almost all the comments already made, so it isn’t necessary to repeat them. Even as it is the kitchen area could be larger – I like to cook. In addition I would make the veranda a fold up, down and in, so that extra footage would be available for use inside. Regardless I like this unit and could happily live in it.

    • Pam March 12, 2016, 8:05 am

      I like the uncluttered counter space. Tiny apartments are going to the portable burners that are kept in a drawer until needed.

  • Carol S March 12, 2016, 11:47 am

    I would like to see further comments.

  • Misty March 27, 2016, 12:12 am

    I like it, but wonder where it is located and the asking price. A kitchen with a larger sink would really help. That would work for hand washing and a few dishes, but before I thought about buying it, figuring out how to redesign that kitchen space would be tops on my list. I like tiny homes, but cooking at home is one of the best ways to save money and be healthy. I agree that a collapsible deck of some sort and more interior space would have been a nice choice, especially since there is not a lot of porch space, from my point of view. Overall, it’s a nice spring board for ideas.
