Two Housetruck Tiny Homes That Will Amaze You


This story on housetruck tiny homes is a guest post by Michael Ostaski (builder)

Alex, I’m a big fan of your newsletter, and wanted to introduce myself.

I have a few new developments in my life and would like to share them with the tiny house community.

First off I have been an artist gypsy my whole life, I have built 4 house trucks and the interiors of several more in my time.

I was part of the “Pacific Northwest Touring Company” from Eugene Oregon with all the guys and gals in the books “rolling Homes” and “some turtles have nice shells” so anyway I just finished one of the nicest house trucks you will ever see-!

I would like to start a business building tiny homes with my sense of design and style.

I also would like to sell my original house truck 1948 International and even offer up this new one as well 1999 Sterling, Here’s a few pictures and I have many more pictures to post.

    I totally love these 2 truck homes! They are so customized and gorgeous and are probably quite expensive? They are beyond the ‘tiny’ house look. Who would want a Class A motor home, when you could have this!

      I would love to talk with you about building Tiny Houses. I have land and many connections to funding and I would like to start a Tiny Houses building company here in Jacksonville, NC. We have a great built in workforce as we have many Marines getting out of military and they want to stay here as we are only a few minutes from Atlantic Ocean. Great number of single men and retirees in area who want to downsize. I think it is a great place for the Tiny House Movement. So far, no competition in area. I am interior designer and great sewer of draperies, upholstered furniture etc. It sounds like our skills could mesh. Please call me at 910-346-2054.

    Have you thought about selling the old IHC truck on oldihc.org website? That is a rare truck to begin with, before the wonderful house was added. Bill

    Love both of these, but I prefer the first one. Incredible workmanship. I’m a taker!

      They’re both unbelievably beautiful. If I could pick, I’d also take the first (newer) one. Thanks Kathi!

    verryyy beautifull! I am from Estonia, and i am just starting to build my first truck home…or maybe…..so what about prices and contacts!?

  • September 22, 2014, 10:18 am

    These house trucks are fine art. If there’s ever a tiny home edition of “House Beautiful” magazine, they belong on the cover.

    I knew Michael nearly forty years ago in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Did a tour of his original housetruck. All I gotta say, he was an artist then, and only gotten better since. Anyone wanting to start up a business with this guy would be nuts not to partner with him. Nuff said.

    Does the Pacific Northwest Touring Co.still exist? We have a small converted school bus I did 33 years ago and have been to the east coast and back as well as many other place and would like to meet and camp with other bus, house truck folks. We live in northern Cal.
    Thanks for any information out there, Bill
