Couple Build 24 Ft. Tiny House on Wheels

We love when we find people who are out there really living their dream and making things happen!

I want you to meet John and Amy of Tiny House of the South.

They are building a 24 ft tiny house on wheels. Why? So they can live debt free, travel and to live the life they dream of.

It all began for them in 2010 when Amy saw Jay Shafer’s blog that inspired them to build a tiny house on wheels of their own. The sheer beauty and simplicity of the whole tiny living idea was fascinating to Amy and soon, John, too.

“Once she stumbled across the tiny house movement, Amy realized that it could be a way to build a better future. Her conviction for a simpler way of life was the infectious catalyst to start living the tiny dream, and now she works to share that dream with anyone who will listen.” – Tiny House of the South

They attended a hands-on workshop with Dan Louche of Tiny Home Builders. And by 2013, they began saving and planning to build the ultimate tiny house on wheels for themselves.

The tiny house is not done yet but we can continue to follow the progress on their website and Instagram.

    Thanks for all the supportive comments, folks!

    We were completely inexperienced with building anything when we started our tiny house build. We’ve just been using great DIY resources to figure it out as we go. Please visit our blog for updates and more info!

    Looks good.. To help with weight , could 2×4 or 2×6 be used for headers ? Looks like very little load on them. What worries do you have about load weight ? Tell us about that trailer and its comparison to regular flat bed trailers , it looks like it’s framed differently . Thanks. Jimbo
