My friend Nate originally bought a camper that he dismantled to build the tiny house on a trailer you’re about to see.
The trailer is 8’3″ by 24’10″ and he used 2x4s instead of 2x8s for floor joists to decrease the home’s weight.
Living Simply and Free in a Tiny Home
Find out why Nate built it and see the rest of the photos below:
Why a Tiny Home on a Trailer?
I was going to ask Nate what drew him to building a tiny house, but then I found out why on his blog:
- To save money
- To be nomadic
- To live simply
- To be outside more
- To be adventurous
Resonates, doesn’t it?

Best Vacuum Cleaner for Tiny Houses
I’d give the title to the Dyson DC35 Slim Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.
Clear Roof in a Tiny House?
Nate used a special material which I’ve asked him about (come back later for update) for a clear roof/ceiling which is pretty awesome.
Dickinson Marine Heater
Dickinson Marine Heaters are a little pricey but they work great in these homes since they’re really made for marine use.
Reclaimed Materials Put to Good Use
Nate and Jen went with plenty of used materials for this house including:
- the trailer (used to be an RV),
- building materials,
- and more!
