This is the story of a solo mother and her teenage daughter who built their own beautiful tiny house on wheels.
Constructing the tiny house herself, mostly from reclaimed and seconds grade materials, she was able to build her small home for a unbelievably low price, meaning she now owns her own home debt free.

I recently rented a wide-angle lens for my big camera and now I have a stock pile of new photos to share with you guys! This is my queen-sized bed, closet, and drawers, which second as the steps to get into my bed. Just below that bottom step is a landing where I can stand to grab clothes, change, and make my bed.

Wondering where the loft, bathroom and storage photos are. Washer/dryer?
You can get a better idea of the design and layout in the YouTube video tour at the top of the page. Or here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r1CBW91qUs
Absolutely incredible!….both the home and the story of the build process. What a creative space she made for her and her daughter! This is one of those homes that will stay in my mind for years to come. Right up on top of the list!!
Thanks, Gail, glad you enjoyed it!
Wow! So love this. This lady was very creative. Kitchen and the pull outs. Washer and dryer in the bathroom. Her fridge is perfect. Storage above in the kitchen. Her daughter is happy. Was clean but seeing how comfortable the tiny house looked. This is something else. 🙂
So creative😍! I have never seen actual bedrooms in a thow before. She is someone I would hire (if possible) to design my home.
This is a remarkable home!!!!! What a great job she did,band ideas she came up with I have never seen before. And at $650 a month to park it there is a great price. I mean Mobile Home parks cover your water, sewer, garbage, maybe a public pool and she got into the perfect space to pull it in and out of is great. I am taking some of her storage and bedroom space in my future home What a Wonderful job you have done and you should be proud of yourself and your home
Yes it can be very handy to have those things all covered for one fee!
What an awesome home for you and your daughter! I certainly applaud your ingenuity, your use of space, your creativity, and the fact that you stayed true to yourselves in your build!
Wow! What is “not as nice” about this house? You took recycled materials and made a masterpiece! It has some of the cleverest design elements I have ever seen in a tiny house; I am sure we will see many of them utilizd in future tiny house builds. I love the drop down storage between the rafters. How clever is that? The kitchen is beautiful and really set up for cooking. The entire house is warm and cozy where it needs to be, and spacious and light where it needs to be. What a great build! What a great home! Thanks for sharing : )
Yes that drop-down storage is awesome!
Oops! Should have said floor joists. . .
Absolutely like your work, it’s true a lot of work will make you frustrated but always brainstorm. If you can offer old or waste it could be great.
WOW! What a beautiful and clever design. So well done. Again, WOW!!!!
