This morning I found out about another DIY tiny home on wheels called the Tiny Blue House so I wanted to share it with you.
It has a standard pitch roof with a side door entrance and it now sits in what seems to be the perfect little plot of land for simple living in a tiny home.
Another feature you might like is that they added space inside by building over the tongue of the trailer where you can enjoy better views of the outdoors thanks to the windows on all sides.

When you go up the steps and walk inside the front door, below is what you see inside.
Micro kitchenette area to the left, table in the center, living space to the right, and notice the in wall A/C unit up top.
Ceiling fan with efficient lighting built right onto the ceiling. Nice, right?
Flip top table you can see above is built from Kansas and Brazilian redwood. Very simple to build if you know basic carpentry. :)
The kitchen island is mobile so you can move it around according to what you want to do inside.
Sleeping loft is upstairs with bathroom and closet space underneath.
The vent you see there is for the on demand water heater and of course the propane wiring to power certain appliances inside (including the water heater) which might be a very dangerous combination that I’ll tell you about more down below. See inside the ‘shed’ below and be sure to read about how this is a potentially fatal setup below:

Warning… (Fire Hazard?)
This ‘shed’ space is underneath the kitchen window inside.
You can see the electrical panel breakers are here too which in my opinion is risky and should be changed because of potential sparks. If propane leaks, and a spark occurs, this could be fatal.
This isn’t the most safe set up and would not meet code because you don’t want your propane tanks so close to potential electrical ‘sparks’ so this is a good example of what you do not want to do.
The safest bet is to store your propane tanks outside of the unit. This potentially is a serious risk and wanted you to know not to do it this way.
Besides that, what a lovely job, right?
