Rapper’s Cargo Trailer Tiny House with Velvet Couch and Chandelier


You might remember Le’shaun’s hit rap single “Doin’ It” which she recorded with LL Cool J. Her first taste of tiny living was on the tour bus she lived on while traveling around the country. But eventually, she became the owner of a 2700 square foot house where she and her daughter lived during her daughter’s pregnancy.

When her daughter moved out, Le’shaun was interested in doing something different — so she DIYed a tiny house from a toy hauler/cargo trailer! But the self-proclaimed “undercover treehugger” didn’t sacrifice her style to go tiny. You’ll find a mini chandelier, a velvet love seat, and all kinds of glamorous special touches which reflect her personality and make her little space a home.

You can see her custom chandelier in the left corner.

She cut the arms off of her velvet love seat so it would fit.

She can haul it anywhere with an SUV.

    I wonder how you will fare when you cannot buy fuel. I would hope you have pulled your lovely home into some mountain hideaway while it is possible.

    Classy! Wow, beautiful, just a perfect Zen space! Love your bathroom sink! Blue velvet, I was oo-ing and ah-ing, really nice! I wouldn’t trust a TV & refrig. outside (might get stolen), but awesome space with all the comforts of home. Beautiful outer wrap, very nice touches everywhere! I’m proud of all you accomplished in doing this! It’s empowering for others, thank you for sharing your wonderful place.
