Semi Truck Trailer Turned Luxury Tiny Home

Heidi and Mike are an incredible couple who got the wild idea to build a tiny house from a semi-truck trailer! Since they had no prior building experience, the idea of simply cutting out windows and doors rather than framing a whole structure was attractive to them. That said, when you see the interior, you’ll be floored at what they learned to produce this caliber of a tiny home.

They actually started off living in tents while building the semi, but then the windy season made that miserable, so they purchased another unfinished trailer just to keep them out of the elements. Eventually, it will become a guest area! For now, they live in the main semi with a convertible bedroom, tons of under-floor storage, and a beautiful spa-like bathroom.

Wait Until You See the Bathroom — And Cantilevered Bed!

You walk into their cozy living room area, which is lower than kitchen.

They borrowed a lot of inspiration from Moroccan architecture.

The bed lifts to reveal a table!

  • Heidi and Mike chose a semi truck trailer because it gave them the frame of a home (inexpensively!) which was helpful with their limited building experience.
  • Mike installed a trash and recycling chute that goes directly into the big bins outdoors that you take to the street on trash day! No emptying cans every couple of days. Brilliant!
  • The bathroom has no doors, but clever partitions that keep the shower and toilet and vanity separate.
  • In the bedroom, their bed is cantilevered, allowing them to push it up into the ceiling when guests come over so they can sit around an expanding table below.
  • The kitchen is higher than the rest of the home so they could put oodles of storage underneath the floor itself!
