Couple Building Semi Trailer Tiny House

Follow a young Cincinnati, Ohio couple, Noah and Tabatha Mehl, as they embark on the adventure of building their own semi trailer tiny house. Noah, an IT Technician by trade and Tabatha, a freelance graphic designer, are leaving their 19th century urban neighborhood in search of the simple life. The couples desire for humble living stems from the agonies of living as renters, yet not wanting to be strapped down to costly homeowners expenses that many young couples get trapped in.

“The problem for us is that the perfect place (at the right price) doesn’t really exist in [our neighborhood].” stated Noah.

Their decision is no revelation as tiny homes are beginning to pop up all over the nation, but the two are delighted to be joining the small house movement.

After several thwarted ideas on the perfect functional design for the home, the twosome decided on a 53′ dry van semi trailer as their foundation. Although smaller than most apartments, the 450 square feet tiny home will boast all the modern conveniences that Noah and Tabatha will need to live and work. The couple’s design comes complete with sliding glass doors, Internet connectivity, a wardrobe closet and most surprisingly a garage.
