That’s right, you can actually book a vacation in this tiny house using Airbnb. But before that, it was an old pancake shack, she bought it for $1,000, it was moved 5 different times, redesigned about a dozen times, and about $15,000 spent on it. What all started as an unwanted pancake shack on wheels and a $1,000 investment is now a dream tiny house, built for only $15k (she explains how in this podcast) but is easily worth much more. This is My Tiny Wine Wagon by My Tiny Empty Nest.
I hope you are doing well! I love Tiny House Talk and hope our journey of taking an old narrowboat and making it our home can inspire others.
I am from the States and my other half is from England. We wanted to do something different when we started out in London. I had lived in Seattle and we have both visited and fell in love with the houseboats there. So when all the pieces fell together for us to buy and make our home on a boat, we jumped at the opportunity.
When I was leaving the States, people were either inspired by our choice or thought it was completely crazy. Especially, as our home was going to be the size of most peoples bedrooms. However, we have been living here for over a year now and could not be happier. Also, when I say ‘we’ this includes two adults and one very happy, but giant, golden retriever. So living small in central London, with a dog, is completely possible.
Below you’ll find the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos as we redid the boat.
