144 Sq. Ft. DIY Blue Door Tiny House on Wheels

I love when people start and complete their own DIY projects like this 144 sq. ft. Blue Door Tiny Home on wheels by Conrad Harley in Stanwood, Washington because it can normally be done for less than $20,000.

Who else do you know that has been able to build their own house for $20k or less? You might be lucky enough to know somebody who has, but most people obviously don’t.

And if you hire a builder or if you decide to order a tiny home from a tiny house company you’re normally going to be asked to pay upwards of $45,000 (or more).

Some of you have been lucky enough to have had your home built for $35,000 but that’s rarely the case these days because labor is just, well, expensive.. So a Do-It-Yourself project is the answer if you’d like to own a tiny home for less than $25,000.

And people like Conrad Harley are leading the way. Others, like Dan Louche, can teach you how to do it using his step by step guide.

    Looks nice! Good job!
    What’s in the box behind the doors over the tongue?

    I love this house! Interesting plumbing idea. I would paint it blue like the door, or maybe red. It looks like abstract art, so make it colorful! Great job and absolutely beautiful. Love the porch and the storage ideas in the back.

    Thank you for sharing your home with us. Personally, I would turn the seat upside down on the “couch” and make a hideaway storage under the foam you would eventually put on top 🙂 Nice place for a blanket or pillows, get it? Anyway, you do it your way and so far you are doing just fine. Your own necessity will tell you what is needful. Desires will tell you what is wanted 🙂 God bless you both and Happy Trails!

    Well done. I love it. MUCH better roof line than most. Of course there is always one thing people would change. I need a comfy couch, but I LOVE it. Enjoy !!

      Thanks Elizabeth glad you liked it! A couch would definitely add to it. Maybe a built in one with storage somehow.

    Would like to meet up sometime and take a look at your place if possible. I am trying to make my tinyhouse dream a reality as well.
