Michelle’s Tiny Home on Wheels

This is a tiny home on wheels just recently finished by Michelle Boyle, a tiny house designer, builder, occupant, and enthusiast.

She calls this cozy, cute, and rustic creation which she spent the last 15 months fashioning, “My Empty Nest.”

The nest sits beside the trees surrounded by lawn, and on the outside, the home is encased in beautiful paneling. Step inside and you’ll be wowed by a tiled kitchen, exposed beams, a French door, full stove, retro refrigerator, and a loft featuring more reclaimed wood.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Love that kitchen! The more I see the kitchen U shaped on the end, the more I like it.

    I like this too. Looks very nice and lots of neat touches. I don’t see a washer or dryer, but I do see space for that.

    Really like this one! Love that the bath is not off the kitchen. Love the living space, too, with the comfy chairs rather than a bench. And the kitchen is a wow with a full fridge and stove. Thanks for the view!

    Kitchen across the end…..
    Bathroom at the other end and not beside the kitchen….
    Well thought out accents……
    Stairs suspended…..
    My ideas as well.
    Very nicely done.

    Great Job Michelle, love your empty nest! Great job on the retro syling in the kitchen, looks like you might have found the kitchen cupboards and from an older home and reused them. Thanks for the look!

  • February 1, 2016, 4:07 pm

    I really like the kitchen layout; the old sink cabinet and the fridge!
    Your home has a really homey feel with the two comfy chairs and the warm wood tones. Lovely!

    I love the stainless steel dish racks in the kitchen. Would you be so kind as to share where you got them.

    Very AWESOME use of space and kitchen is spot on. I’m going tiny HOW next spring 2017! I have RA so l will have dual stair rails and a soaker tub. Best wishes to you! Easy e

    • August 3, 2016, 6:22 pm

      Erika, I have RA also. How about a tiny that you don’t have to climb if you don’t want to. This one has a queen sized bed platform on the main level.

    Immediately you can feel the warmth of the place. I love the kitchen. I like the stairs and a wire railing from top to bottom easily solve the young kid issue for me. Can you tell me what type of wood is under the painted walls?

    Does this tiny house on wheels cost $75,000? No seriously Michelle it is very nice. Do you mind if we inquire about the cost?? Thank you.

    • February 9, 2016, 4:22 pm

      Total cost was $33,500.

    I love tiny houses, but this one must be my favorite, as soon as I saw the pictures I felt like I was at home?

    Would love to know ballpark cost, if plans are available and is it hooked up to a water supply at that beautiful location. Is it in an RV park? Is there an HOA cost. Thank-you

    You have done a commendable job, Michelle, in designing and creating a beautiful tiny home. I hope you can spend many happy hours there.

    LOVE THIS! So well thought out. Great touches. I want to see every nook and cranny on this one!

    This tiny house feels like a real home. I think that is our purpose when trying to decide on a layout. Great job Michelle.

    This is a little piece of heaven! I have been interested in the tiny house movement for approximately a yer and have yet to see a more welcoming set up. From the choice of materials, both inside and out, to the simple layout, the place screams comfort. Kudos to the designer.

    • February 9, 2016, 4:25 pm

      Thank you, very much! I worked very hard on it.

    I have been following Michelle on Facebook for some time now. She has been very informative on the ins and outs of her build and has shared what worked for her. She has been very inspiring. Can hardly wait to get my build started and have the opportunity to share and hopefully inspire others. Thank you Michelle!

    Great job Michelle. I LOVE the vintage kitchen items. Perhaps you can give me some pointers on finding things like the fridge and how it was refurbished. Is the sink a Youngtown by Mullins?
    I’m a 17 year veteran Homebuilder that just finished my first tiny home. We had a great reception for our downstairs queen bed and our Youngtown sink. The only catch was we probably made the sink look too good and people thought it was a reproduction. Here is a link to a look at it.
    Please do touch back with me with any info on the retro fridge and range. Thanks.

    Love it! I am curious how much did it cost you to build your lovely home!!! Love to have the plan.

    • Sue Miller
      August 5, 2016, 1:57 pm

      In previous comments she listed the build price at $33500 I believe.

    This is my kind of home! I have been searching for a home to have built and this one is just so stinking cozy looking. Love the mix of reclaimed materials with the smattering of new. I really love the kitchen set up in the u-shape at the end too! Is there a possibility of getting floorplans?

    Kitchen is very usable. Thumbs up.

    Full-size furniture designed for a stand-still building can overpower a tiny living room. For this reason, some TH designers custom-fit shallower handmade furniture such as built-in couches and dinettes.

    Love the gnome tail-gunner!

    Gumby in the bedroom window! Semper Gumby!

    Nice job, Michelle. What is your next project?

    Kitchen looks very functional. Not something you see very often in tiny homes. Looks like you can cook just about anything here. No pictures of bathroom but–a bathroom’s a bathroom.

    This is really nice Michelle! It’s so nice and homey. I love all the special touches. Your story in turning tiny was awesome too! Thanks for sharing both of those. It was nice to meet you at the Jam in Co. (What is the size of your th?)
