This is Kahla’s DIY tiny house on wheels. She built it with the help of her parents on nights and weekends over the course of 10 months!
The tiny house was built on a 20ft Tumbleweed Trailer and was recently moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania to Fairplay, Colorado. Kahla runs a website called To Live Tiny where you can follow along and learn more about her tiny house life. Please enjoy and learn more below!
Kahla’s DIY Tiny Home on Wheels: Built on Nights/Weekends!
During the discussions with El Paso County Commissioners on Tuesday the industry shared some interesting concepts for how these tiny homes are being clustered into highly efficient communities elsewhere and how they might play a role in addressing the need for more workforce housing in El Paso County.2

El Paso County will allow tiny houses in unincorporated areas, commissioners agreed unanimously on Tuesday.
They voted to amend the land use code to permit the miniature structures in agricultural zoning districts, on some residential lots and in recreational vehicle parks – wherever mobile homes are allowed, according to the county’s Planning and Community Development Department.
The changes also will let residents live in the homes permanently, which the code previously prohibited because it classified tiny houses as RVs.
Tiny houses are typically less than 400 square feet, and some are mounted on trailers. Fans of the miniature dwellings see them as a solution to rising housing prices that also reduces energy consumption and allows for a new brand of minimalist, mobile lifestyle.
El Paso County is one of the first local governments in Colorado to change its rules for tiny houses.1
