I’ve shown you two of Michael Ostaski’s amazing housetruck tiny homes before.

Right now I’d like to show you a video so you can learn even more about his first housetruck which he actually lived in for many years.

And if you’re interested I want you to stay tuned because Michael has some special announcements for us coming soon.

Below, you get to see and hear Michael’s story of how he started building his first housetruck when he was around 23 years old and lived in it for around 18 years. By now it’s been remodeled 6 times!

      Thanks Cosy. I totally agree.. Very interesting person! I love how he attributes getting to become an artist for a living to living in his DIY housetruck for the first 18 years of his career. Pretty awesome.
