In this post, you’ll get to tour a newlyweds’ recently built 160 sq. ft. tiny home on wheels.
The house is 13’5″ high and about 8′ wide so it’s legal to tow on public roads.
There’s also an upstairs loft that adds around 30-40 sq. ft. of livable space to the home.
So in total… It’s really about 200 sq. ft. of living space with a footprint of just 160 sq. ft.

Couples & Tiny Houses
Do you ever wonder if couples and tiny houses even go together? I think they can. But we all know it’s not for all couples.
Are you a couple living in a tiny home, micro apartment or really small cabin? If so, tell us about it in the comments!
If not, would you live tiny now if your lover/partner agreed to?
Yesterday I brought the issue up about tiny houses and couples…
Should you have to convince your partner? Do you just wait until he or she is ready? Or meet somewhere in between to work it out? Read that post here and meet another couple that’s working on living tiny.
My “Lovebug” Tiny House Plans
I created my own design of a tiny house for couples a while back using 3d design software. I made an entire post about it here where you can explore the 3d rendition of the home. I’d love to read your thoughts/ideas after checking it out.
So yeah, don’t forget to check out my Lovebug Tiny House Design for Couples.
3′ Add On Porch
Tory designed a porch that you add on to the trailer after you park it that helps add more space to the tiny home without sacrificing interior space for a built-in porch.
What People Are Using Tiny Houses on Trailers For
The truth is that people are building them for all sorts of purposes, not just to live in full-time. Here are some ways people are using them right now.
- Campground cabins
- Permanent homes
- Vacation cabins
- Rental cabins
- Hobby space
- Business space
How Long it Took Tory to Build It
It took him 3-4 months to finish it and that’s doing it nearly full-time but completing the majority of it all by himself. And this is to completely finish the home inside and out. With all of the plumbing and electrical work done and having it set up just like an RV.
So if you were to do it on weekends I would expect for it to take a good year to complete start to finish. At least for a tiny house that can really function as a fully functional home (like this one).
