This is to announce the Carrack 1042 & 836 tiny house plans by Michael Janzen are currently on a limited time buy one, get one sale which ends May 27th (Monday) so I thought you should know.

You might remember both of these plans because I’ve posted about both the 1042 and the 836. The 1042 is technically a park model tiny house, while the 836 is a 36-foot tiny house on wheels that’s easier to tow with a regular full-size pick-up truck. Which one do you like best? Would you want to use your tiny house as a travel trailer, or not?

This is a 36-foot tiny home you can build using these affordable tiny house plans by Michael Janzen of Tiny House Design. It’s the Carrack 836, which is a smaller version of the Carrack 1042, aka, the 420-square-foot ‘big tiny house’ you can build using these $39 downloadable plans.

This version is still pretty big, but it’s easier to tow, and legal to do so without a permit, kind of like a travel trailer. It’s 8′ 6″ wide, 36′ long, and 13’6″ tall. The design is flexible, so you can sort of make the space work best for you. I wonder what yours would look like…

SPECIAL LINK – Get your BOTH versions of the Carrack Tiny House Plans (Buy One, Get One Deal). Expires Monday, May 27, 2019.

This is the story of Gretchen’s stealth camper van conversion. She bought a van, moved in with her two Scotties (named Flanagan and Campbell), and then eventually had it insulated and converted by purchasing a kit from a company in Colorado that specializes in van conversions! So here’s how it all went down.

I (and my two scotties, Flanagan and Campbell) set off from Seattle to Colorado Springs in mid-October to have the kit installed at Wayfarer vans.
