I’m really excited to show you this man’s ‘road warrior’ tiny house that he built for only $9,174 because it reminds us of the real reasons to consider going tiny, which is to live life to the fullest.

His name is Josh, also known as, Artisan Josh (also @artison_josh on Instagram), and he’s been living and traveling with his tiny house all year!

His story also reminds us how we don’t need to spend so much money to build and live our dreams. I’m able to share this with you thanks to Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey. Thanks and enjoy!

You may already know Marsha Cowan. She who recently sold her Tiny Red Bus, remember?

Marsha has also built another tiny cottage before, on a 14′ trailer, you can see that one here. It’s known as The Darling Tiny House and one of our wonderful readers even shared an illustration of it here. And before that, she built one called The Nest. So she’s no stranger to building!

And today, I’m here to share the continuation of Marsha’s tiny house journey with you. So grab a hot cup of tea or coffee and enjoy, in her own words and images, below. 🙂

This is an unfinished DIY tiny house shell that survived Hurricane Irma in Naples, Florida.

The other cool part is, the couple who own it were able to park two cars inside it during the storm which helped protect the cars while also adding weight to the structure to stabilize it during the storm.
