He Built an Off-Grid Tiny House in the Mojave Desert


This is the story of Eric Muss-Barnes and his off-grid Mojave Desert Tiny House on Wheels in Luthorville, California.

Witness the crazy story of how Eric Muss-Barnes, an unemployed computer geek (formerly with Walt Disney Studios) and struggling novelist, risks homelessness by spending most of his life savings to build an off-grid dreamhouse in the middle of nowhere. Having purchased vast acres of the Old West, can Eric find a stable job and create his home, before his money runs out? 2

He built a custom tiny house on a fifth wheel trailer with a unique entryway where Eric can easily mount and tow his motorcycle.

    Not to be a stickler (ok, I will be!) That is NOT a 5th wheel trailer. It is a gooseneck. Used to haul both and oh how I miss my gooseneck. I like the way he left one of the ramps exposed for the bike, good thinking!
