Stefanie is one amazing woman! She has traveled to 28 countries, and now has a vardo wagon she built all by herself that she’s towing around the United States.

When the pandemic put her out of work, she wanted something to do with her extra time: And she didn’t disappoint! With a $15,000 budget, she managed to build an absolutely stunning off-grid wagon she calls, “Misty.” You’ll love “meeting” Stefanie in her video tour with Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey. What an amazing woman!

    Efficient use of space. Reminds me of the English Shepherds huts. Though I am not crazy about the blue epoxy inlay in the kitchen – it looks like epoxy. Mainly because epoxy is highly cancerous. It should not be a part of a kitchen, where you prepare food.

      Sorry, you’re of course free to prefer to not have any epoxy in your kitchen, but to say it’s cancer causing isn’t really true, the chemicals and resins used to make epoxy can be dangerous but once fully cured it’s considered safe. Just like many other products that can be found in most kitchens, there’s a difference from how they’re made from what risk the end product can have…

      There are also different types of epoxies, those deemed food safe have to pass tests by government organizations like the USFDA, and there’s also a class of epoxies used in the medical field that they wouldn’t be doing if epoxy was dangerous no matter what state it was in or how it was made… Fully cured epoxy is a polymer (plastic), which is stable and inert and manufacturers have had to follow strict standards for decades now that eliminates most potential risk from contaminants.

      You generally have more to fear from your kitchen cabinets, which can have high levels of chemicals, off gassing, contaminants like accidental PCB’s from sealants, etc. and haven’t really had to deal with regulations, etc. that have made other products safer over the years and as a lot of that would be airborne, a higher risk of exposure in modern homes that are generally going to be more airtight and not always well ventilated…

    OMG! What a wonderful little jewel box of a home! Love the “art nouveau” flourishes that make it so cozy and the use of space is nice. I can see some changes I’d make to personalize if for myself but overall, this has a good feeling to it. Love the curved roof, too. A bit of a Gypsy fantasy…I might just wear purple and pointed shoes if I lived here! Seriously, though, this feels like home to me. Cute as it is but I might opt for making it just a tad bigger.
