This is the story of Frank’s micro cabin on wheels. He built it in all of about two months, doing all of the work himself, and using sustainable materials from his area in western North Carolina.
He’s a traveling carpenter who spends lots of time on the road, so this is going to be something he tows with him so he doesn’t have to stay at motels. What do you think?

He Built a Micro Cabin on Wheels
I was able to catch a quick interview with Frank which you can enjoy below while you tour his tiny cabin on wheels:
Interview with Owner/Builder/Dweller
THT: How long have you had it?
I just finished it a few days ago.
THT: How much did it cost you to build it? How long did it take you?
The cost was around $10,000. $2,500 of it was the trailer and another $1,800 on windows that I spoiled myself with.
It took about 2 months to build as I did everything myself including the utilities.
THT: Where do you end up parking it?
I park and stay in it on my brother’s property and while on the road I’ll be keeping it at job sites or campgrounds.
THT: How do you handle toilet/shower?
As for a toilet while I’m on the road there is never a problem finding one.
Other than that I use my brother’s house and if I was parked somewhere remote for a while I would set up an outdoor composting toilet.
The house also has an EccoTemp instant water heater that I can hook a shower head up to so depending on where I am that works.
THT: Thank you so much Frank! Looks great, excellent job and hope you enjoy it for years to come!
Thanks for the interest!
