This post is based on a video created by Kirsten Dirksen of Faircompanies.com about a woman living in a shipping container and a tiny home on wheels with her family.
A friend suggested she build something after being forced out of her last home where she was renting.
After that she was able to attain a shipping container for free that used to bring things back and forth from China.
The homeowner spent $4,000 to convert the container into a home so that now there’s a kitchen, living room, tiny playroom, and more- all crammed into the small space. She customized everything without any previous carpentry experience.
You’ll also get to see the awesome tiny house on wheels that the woman built right beside her container house so that she and her children can enjoy more space.

One thing that I like about what she said in the video, towards the 3:55 mark, is how it helps to be able to take your time if you’re using reclaimed materials.
Go ahead and take a tour of this unique shipping container conversion and tiny house on wheels living combination. I think it’s a great example of how you can combine two tiny houses for more comfortable living. One can serve as the bedroom and office while the other is the kitchen and bath with a deck or nice outdoor area to bring it all together.
