400 Sq. ft. Bohemian-Style Small House on Wheels

This colorful humble home in Austin, Tx is made up of two trailers placed perpendicularly and connected by a large open deck.

I absolutely love the way the interior designer, Kim Lewis decorated everything. The outdoor space is perfect for enjoying dinners outside with family and friends.

Check out the cool elevated laundry area in the bedroom. Explore this small house on wheels and see what you think about the design.

    Washer where the clothes are, YES!

    • Avatar Deadrock May 29, 2015, 2:58 pm

      Absolutely! I guess if you live in a house with lots of other people (kids and whatnot) you can’t really bogart the washer, especially if you want to teach your kids to get used to washing their own clothes after they’ve reached a certain age. But when you’re living alone, having the washer and dryer right by where you dress and undress every day is eminently sensible. If you live in a “regular” house that even boasts a good sized walk-in closet, THAT’S the spot to put them. In a smaller home, a combo w/d somewhere in the bedroom is the best and only solution, in my opinion. Although I guess you might have to take into consideration the cost to run a few extra feet of plumbing? Not sure about that, but I’d rather pay more up front to get the washer and dryer where I need them, then spend the rest of my life hucking a basket of laundry to and fro from opposites ends of my house – however small it might end up being.

    Wow, best one I have seen. Love the look, just my style and I hope to have one myself soon.

  • Avatar Diane Leader May 29, 2015, 11:23 am

    I love this layout, but is there a fridge? This is exactly what I want, esp no loft bed. I’m older and don’t want to run up and down a ladder in the middle of the nite to the bathroom.

    • Avatar Y. K. Greene May 29, 2015, 3:26 pm

      Yeah there’s a fridge and a wine cooler! That blue island in the kitchen is on wheels and features the fridge and wine rack iirc, so they can move it out to the deck to entertain friends and customers. The couple own a winery (which is located right across the lot from their home) so it was important to them that they have room to entertain on the property and showcase their wares.

  • Avatar dea May 29, 2015, 11:43 am

    I’m fascinated by it, I like it…hmmm…

  • Avatar Diane May 29, 2015, 12:01 pm

    I love this! The puppy houses are too cool – love the entrance steps – many things to love.

  • Avatar Wendy May 29, 2015, 12:09 pm

    Absolutely love it …

  • Avatar gale May 29, 2015, 12:26 pm

    This is just 2 cool!!! Love the inside and out. Washer in the closet had been a long time wishlist item. After all how much easier could that be? Wonderful design and decor for all ages. My commendations to the builder and designer.

  • Avatar Laura May 29, 2015, 12:31 pm

    One of the favorites of all I’ve seen.

  • Avatar TXTbone May 29, 2015, 2:28 pm

    Where did you get that copper panels–I love it. Please let me know if possible

    • Avatar two crows May 29, 2015, 4:12 pm

      The house was featured on Tiny House Nation on FYI network. Iirc, the homeowners had found the panels prior to the show being taped and asked the designer [Zach] to incorporate them any way he could. He built them into the front doors, the bathroom sliding doors and some other applications as well.

  • Avatar Andrea Hardy May 29, 2015, 2:43 pm

    I’m in love with everything (except the boots on the bed:)

  • Avatar Cosy May 29, 2015, 3:00 pm

    So bright and inviting. Love those stairs…first impressions…. I knew it was going to be a good one. I like the laundry by the clothing, so practical. I would love to know where to find the copper panels also. Yep I could move right in & be happy.

  • Avatar Steve Westfall May 29, 2015, 3:10 pm

    Great job!

  • Avatar Stine May 29, 2015, 3:11 pm

    I like the idea of two separate buildings, if you want to live small, not tiny, but can’t afford small. And still want to avoid debt.
    Then you could buy/build the first house and live there while while saving for/building house number two.

  • Avatar Dawn May 29, 2015, 5:25 pm

    Lovely and well done! Wished I could do something like that here in WI! lol Loving the copper paneling!

  • Avatar JJ May 29, 2015, 7:25 pm

    I love this design. Wish there were more photos, particularly closer views of the kitchen & bathroom. But I love the flow & variety of areas.
    I hope this place, being in Austin, is high & dry from recently floods.

    • Avatar Lynnette June 5, 2015, 1:08 pm

      This episode of TH Nation is available on On Demand here in the US.

  • Avatar Raini May 29, 2015, 9:19 pm

    Super comfortable Home Sweet Home!

  • Avatar Patty May 31, 2015, 11:53 pm

    Interesting home! I especially like the pet area.

  • Avatar Mayson June 1, 2015, 6:08 pm

    Really LOVE those doors, can I ask where you purchased from and what they’re made of? It looks like iron work as you have it on the bottom part of the deck. Thanks,

    • Avatar Fay June 4, 2015, 8:06 pm

      Mayson, I watched the Tiny House Nation episode about the construction of this house and they made the doors and other features custom, with pierced copper panels from Parasoleil http://www.parasoleil.com/gallery/patterns/ I think the pattern is Old Flanigan.

  • Avatar Ginger June 3, 2015, 12:39 am

    Can you tell me what the price of this tiny home is? Are both trailers considered one unit, and do they come pre fab? Thanks..

    • Avatar Emily June 19, 2015, 12:25 am

      I watched the episode, and their budget was 55k. They are 2 totally separate trailers connected in an L shape when parked. Hope it helped!

  • Avatar Linda June 4, 2015, 1:28 pm

    Love the look of your TH but I have one suggestion. If you have not already done this, in the bedroom I would put hinges on the shelf so it would open out and on the other side so it will make it easier to hang up your clothes.

  • Avatar deborah July 13, 2015, 9:58 pm

    Love it except for the black walls in kitchen.

  • Avatar Teresa Turner July 28, 2015, 6:00 pm

    Very nice what company built this Im looking around for one.?

  • Avatar Lynn Cash October 24, 2015, 12:46 pm

    Love this tiny house! I’m hoping to have one someday (still cleaning out my home). I live close to Austin & would REALLY like to drive there to see this one in person. Any way to do that? Please let me know!

  • Avatar Cindy October 24, 2015, 4:45 pm

    Love the layout,window placement and colors.You have room but no McMansion to deal with.

  • Avatar Zackem October 24, 2015, 7:51 pm

    Bohemian is definitely, the first thing that comes to mind when looking at this home… What can be done with a home like this of your own, Anything, anything that your heart desires, the decor may not be of your liking, but no one is trying to sell you the decor… 400 sqft, scares me as to what the end cost could be…! Still it’s portable I believe, and that makes for a big plus… All it would need is a nice little corner of earth with some green vegetation to make the whole thing work…

  • Avatar Kym November 4, 2015, 9:56 pm

    First, I LOVE this home. Fave things are the copper panels (would also like to know where to find), the awesome bench with puppy beds, and the plant stands with hammock storage. I’ve been searching all evening for DIY directions on how to build those or where I can buy them. Does anyone have any tips for me? I’d sure appreciate it!

  • Avatar Angel March 20, 2016, 2:59 pm

    I saw this house when Zach was building it on the show and it has always been my favorite. I love the freezer and refrigerator drawers and have already checked into them for my design that I am working on. Zach is amazing with the things he comes up with for people. I would love for him to do mine. Wishful thinking. But the design of this is fabulous. I hope this couple is really enjoying their wine business and their tiny home.

  • Avatar kristina nadreau March 20, 2016, 7:01 pm

    for those of you who would like the washer dryer in your closet…… you may wish to consider the noise this combo is going to make, because it is located just a few feet from the bed. A vented WD combo will take about 4 hours, and a non-vented unit will take 6-8 hours, according to the information I have read. I would rather have the laundry away from my bed, so I can sleep regardless of doing laundry.

  • Avatar Kristin March 21, 2016, 8:32 pm

    Wow! Bohemian sure looks differnt these days than it did back in the ’50s and ’60s!

  • Avatar Lin February 22, 2017, 5:45 pm

    Can you tell me how much this cost?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee February 23, 2017, 6:31 am

      I’m afraid there are no details on cost anywhere on the web. The couple paid a designer to make it, and didn’t disclose what they spent.

      • Avatar Aaron May 14, 2017, 8:18 pm

        Tiny House Nation said the couple had a budget of $55k but I’m not sure if they went over/under

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN February 24, 2017, 5:53 pm

    I have seen this one in the past, and still yet it brings back fond memories of my younger years…! I will always be happy to review this tiny house again and again….

  • Avatar Marcella Bennett November 6, 2017, 10:57 am

    Is there any place we can find the specs for those who want to try this on our own?
