Student Builds 215 Sq. Ft. Tiny House with Earthquake Salvaged Materials

This is Stefan Cook’s DIY 215 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels that he built using salvaged earthquake materials in New Zealand. When a roommate introduced Stefan to the idea of a tiny house, he almost immediately decided that he would do it someday.

From the outside, you’ll notice that it’s pretty large for a tiny house on wheels. It’s approximately 26 feet long (or about 31 feet long if you include the entire trailer) and about 8.2 feet wide and 14.7 feet high.

When you go inside, you’ll find a very open floor plan with a kitchen, living area, bathroom, and an upstairs sleeping loft. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Out of misery and devastation came something wonderful. Good job although I hate this came from such a loss. Very nicely done and roomy. How much did this cost ultimately?

    Well done guys. I was in Christchurch for most of the devastating quakes and my house suffered some minor damage .. thankfully. The debris is still being cleaned up and most is has being tipped without a practical end use… separation of materials seems to be the problem. It’s great to see that some of it has been used for housing renewal.
