Dan & Brittany’s Off-Grid Tiny House on Wheels

This is Dan & Brittany’s off-grid tiny house on wheels. They call it the Lucky House.

Instead of renting an apartment, they decided to build their own tiny house instead!

The design is by Laird Herbert of Leaf House which is where the couple bought the plans to build the tiny home. It’s built to be off-grid, ready for cold climate, and is already set up with solar power and deep cycle batteries.

When you go inside, you’ll find a living area, kitchen, bathroom, sleeping loft, and more. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Nice, simple design! Straight-forward! Clean looking on the outside and with an angle built-in for solar installation! Wonderful!

    What a great amount of information packed into this blog. They have been so generous to share all the links and teach via experience. Their home is warm and inviting. As they seem to be. Thank you for Sharing.

    Wow. I really like this design. I’ve been looking at tiny houses on wheels for a while and have sketched a few designs that I like, but this is really great. Love that it isn’t so large yet has a real living room area and a loft that doesn’t seem too high/steep. Very nicely done!! Thanks for sharing. Would have loved to see more.

    Would you have the floor plan for your most amazing tiny home?
    The design, layout is outstanding. Would you have placed a -50 insulation and a warming floor? And is not how are the walls and floors in the colder weather?
    Still I would really like the floor plan so I could build my own just like your’s if that’s ok. I am currently back at getting my license upgraged to A, I have the Z Endorsement and hope to once passed the MTO test to get a career driving for a hopefully local transport company driving full time. Once I earn enough to build such a off the grid tiny house. I am now a newbie minimalist. Not sure how I got forced into this at my age of 60, but here I am trying to do what ever it takes to not have to fall off into the obis of no return emotionally. Wow, what a life I have had one hell of a ride. Not something too many others would or could embark on to tell the tale of woos.
    I am a fighter and hopefully with the helping hand of others that hear me will in some some way do what they can to keep me off the streets.
    I hope some day our Governments would contribute 20 million towards tiny houses for all us Canadians that are homeless. Tjis is a dueable change towards poverty to give each and every homeless person(s) a safe and secure tiny house to get their lives to a better place where they can give back as well in some way…on the pay forward system.
    Please don’t think bad of me, and I don’t think you will…all I’m trying to do is be pro-active in emailing our Government my thoughts on poverty and what I think may be the salvation in helping others in need that don’t have a voice and reaching out to those that know others that can be a catalyst for new change of supplementing funds and housing that doesn’t work for those that are not earning enough, and those that are a family active but have fallen on hard times. We are many homeless that need to reach out for ourselves and others to be heard.
    Back to why I emailed you…love your tiny house design, it’s one of the best I have collected, and would appreciate if you feel it’s okay to do so, to share the house floor plan and that really cool toilet system you’ve got.
    Sincerely and I do hope all in your lives are going well and in all sincerity continue to do so.
    I would really like to hear back on my feelings I shared regarding Homelessness across Canada
    All the best from Heidi/Bluegirl

    This is puts the FUN in functional. You need to be careful with visual clutter in a Tiny House and this one seems pretty well edited. A little more planning could tune it to a 10. The big window across the whole kitchen is something that helps immensely. If the dish drainer could double as a plate and dish cupboard within an open-bottomed overhead cabinet, it would smooth out the overhead clutter.

    Still a favorite!! Love it!

    I absolutely love your home on wheels.
    Reading up on how it’s been built, with material to handle -50
    nasty cold weather, would help in very warm weather I think
    The layout is well thought out to make it feel much more than it its.
    My favorite of all tiny houses I’ve seen so far.
