I had to share this amazing DIY micro camper that doubles as a boat with you. It’s called the Mini Camper Cruiser. And it can even sit up to four people. I guess we can even call this one a micro houseboat!

This boat/camper was originally designed by Craig Titmus of Australia. Right now there are PDF plans you can purchase and download to build it yourself on DuckWorks Boatbuilder’s Supply. The plans cost $35 as I’m writing this. Check it out below and let me know what you think about it in the comments.

I had the opportunity to speak with Alex from right here at Tiny House Talk the other day. We had a great conversation and he asked a lot of great questions. Some of the things he asked got me thinking about where this all started and just exactly how we got to a point in our lives where building and living in a tiny house seemed like the right decision.

Matt and I have been together a long time – nearly 18 years. We met in college and we were 19 and 20 when we started dating. It’s funny because a lot of people want to know how the two of us can live and work together but we just don’t think about it like that. We like spending time with each other so it just comes naturally. We have always had very complimentary dreams. Those dreams didn’t always include a tiny house; especially since we didn’t even know what a tiny house was back then, but they always included a desire to live in a more extraordinary way.

When I think back on it, I realize that the tiny house idea was really not that far from some of our earlier yearnings for adventure. Maybe it is possible that the concept was always in our DNA but until we discovered the tiny house movement we just didn’t realize it.
