Couple Crashed Tiny & Rebuilt it Better Than Ever!


The terrifying risk when you have a home on wheels is that at some point you could end up crashing your entire house — and that’s exactly what happened to Lauren and Patrick when their trailer gave way on its journey to their new “forever” piece of land.

They had spent months building out their Tumbleweed trailer and then had taken it around the country traveling. But when they purchased land so they could settle down, they lost their tiny house to the twisty roads. After some time and a good cry, they managed to salvage what they could and rebuilt the tiny house better than ever!

Now it sits connected to another smaller “mini house” by a huge 20×20 deck, and they’re loving their tiny life. The video below is worth the watch!

This is what the inside of their tiny house looked like after the crash 😢

It came off the trailer and ended up in a ditch.

BUT that’s not the end of the story!

The inside now has a sleek modern feel.

They made their second tiny house into their living room.

    I wonder if they would have made the changes had they not had the accident? It may have been a lucky brake if you can look at it that way 🤔

      I thought the same thing. They really overhauled the interior after the crash.

    Glad they were able to recover from the crash! and the tiny house stayed intact mostly after rolling. A modern RV type trailer would most likely have collapsed after something like this.
