Tumbleweed Vardo Camping Tiny House – Plans on Sale

If you love Tumbleweed’s tiny house designs but you’d prefer something even smaller than the Vardo gypsy style camper (link to video version of this post) might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Gypsy Style Super Tiny House

It’s a gypsy style camper that will fit in the back of your truck or on a small trailer. Perfect if you want to travel or just use for camping on the weekends.

It’s also a great way to spruce up on your building skills before you tackle on a larger project.

Using Recycled Materials

Jay Shafer, founder of Tumbleweed, built the first Vardo from mostly recycled materials. He only had to spend a few hundred dollars to make it. And you can make it look really cool if you find some stained glass you can use for a window.

Jay and his wife have actually used it themselves when traveling throughout California and I wouldn’t mind having one myself!

The Plans So You Can Build One For Yourself

As usual Jay and their team have created detailed plans to make it easy for you to follow and build your own. The building plans include…

  • Elevation drawings from all 4 sides
  • Window and door openings
  • Finish materials
  • Two pages on how to frame each wall (front, back and sides)
  • How to create the rounded roof
  • How to create the slight angle on the side walls
  • Floor framing
  • How to insulate and where
  • What types of wood studs to use
  • What materials to use
  • How to secure it to your truck
  • How to secure it to a trailer

With the plans you also get details on the doors and other basic components.

  • This was a no brainer as soon as I was notifed I purchased and down loaded my copy of the plans. Now I just need the time to build it !;)

  • I got the plans down loaded as soon as I was emailed about it looking forward to building the project. I live in 300 sq ft now and this will make a great guest house. ;)

    Hey Kevin that’s awesome. I think it’s a great build and a really nice set of plans. Quite the “steal” at that price too. Have fun with your project and looking forward to checking out updates on your blog!
