Woman Builds Micro Cabin on Wheels: Part II

This is a 60 sq. ft. micro cabin built by Barbara Diaz of Cottage Camper.

Since we last featured Barbara’s camper, she has added some upgrades to it. She raised the roof so that it’s now 6 feet tall, painted the roof white to reflect the Florida sun, added more windows, installed custom made curtains and cushions, and installed solar exterior lights. Pretty nice, isn’t it?

Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

    Well I’m going to be building one similar from same kinda of trailer as youRr’s except mines used, had to re weld cracked bottom frame, it’s older so going to have to remove all the rust and some of the the square posts to reduce weight . I’ll be using plastic siding used in bathrooms and aluminum studding, foam filled walls, I’m keeping the folding Gate butcutting it by 1/2 so I’ll still have gate to lift for length adding 1 solar panel on top plus a couple of 6 volt batteries for LED lights & fridge conversion of cooler. Will send you Pictures as you did. Only have 4 cylinder Caliber total towing 700 lbs

    Yeow. Lots of pictures of some sort of weaved box but basically, this “home” looks like it was thrown together and very poorly built. And, I don’t really think you need a nearly 12 minute video of this place. Yuck!!

      Did you drop by to be nasty? Do submit a video of the campers and houses you have built, I’d love to see what perfection looks like.

      Liz must not have much of a life outside her immaculate condo or is one of those poxish trolls , since she loves to get personal and criticize on here.
      Barbara’s micro-camper reminds me a lot of the personalized vans and campers that I used to see at old Florida campgrounds, which often meant the person had a sense of humor and was self-sufficient, and would come over and help if you had a problem with your own vehicle or tent. What a notion! Now we have the Liz mentality.

    Barbara,
    Thank you for sharing your little camper project with us. I love that you put the tiny white picket fence attachment, just darling. You might be interested in the avani stove/sink/cabinet combo for your little camper before you actually attach the sink you have. the Avani has a small sink but it has other things you need as well. If it will fit in there for you. Here you can check it out.

    Sorry went to get this so you can look it up and it submitted already. Here ya go Barbara, you might want to put a porta potty? Oh and take as long as you need when sharing no one is twisting anyones arm that doesn’t want to stay. 🙂 I enjoyed your share.
    Avanti CK301SHP 30 Complete Compact Kitchen with 2.4 cu. ft. Refrigerator. Hope this helps.

    Aw it’s adorbs! All you need is a coffee pot and a microwave and a little potty and you’re all set! Good for you for doing this yourself! Can you come and help me re do my RV now? Please?

    Beautiful! and so creative! As one who has built my own camping trailer and small truck camper , I can really appreciate this! Well done Barbara!
    I love the use of common materials in your build! This impresses me WAY more that those commercially built RVs! Keep on Camping!

    I came back to look at my old post and I didn’t realize how many comments there were. THANK YOU ALL! I’ve been living in my little Cottage Camper FULL TIME since Nov. 2015 and just this past month I started a “full size” 8×20 Tiny House and I’m registered to take it to the Florida Tiny House Festival in November 2016 at St. Augustine. In the meantime, the park managers here at Gracious RV in Okeechobee are extending my special discount so come by & visit & see the new place! I’m also blogging the new build = Search on facebook: “TakeMeHomeTinyHouse” (all one word). Thank you all for your kind comments. Don’t you just love TinyHouseTalk???
