Valerie & Jessi from Happy Camper Wives are exploring long-term travel while living full-time in a T@b Teardrop Trailer.
They sold their house in San Francisco, downsized their stuff, and became minimalist nomads just over four months ago. At first, they thought they’d travel for a year and then move to Florida but after four months they’ve fallen in love with the lifestyle and want to continue the adventure in Europe and New Zealand once they’ve finished touring North America.
Some of the challenges they’ve faced with their new lifestyle include having to choose destinations based on warm weather since they live an indoor/outdoor lifestyle (which doesn’t always work out), and getting access to high-speed internet (Campground WiFi connections aren’t always fast enough to do a full day of online work).
They took a tuff shed and converted into a tiny house by themselves. So yes, they’re DIYers (Do-It-Yourself’ers). You’ll get to learn all about it by watching the video below.
This video is helpful if you’re interested in what it’s like to convert a shed plus what it’s like to live in one on your family’s land. Please enjoy and if you’d like to you can re-share using the social and e-mail share buttons below. Thank you!
Tiny House Questions with Couple Living in Converted Shed

In search of a more simple life and completeness, the couple, Michael and Diana lived in a 144 square foot tiny home in Northern California for seven years. They feel their house was not tiny but just right for them.
The tiny house does not feel small as you will see below. The natural sunlight and surrounding trees there are magical.
Diana says you enter a timeless time here. And it’s easy to forget about everything but the present moment.
The fireplace is a necessity in this home as it creates heat for the home and bathing water.
With no electricity which means no refrigerator, no meat, no ice cream Diana would cook beautifully colored fresh vegetables in one small cast iron pot over the open fire for their meals.
We’ve travelled 2500 miles in our Tiny House in the last six months, staying put anywhere from 1 day to 3 months. It’s been a great adventure, and we’re getting ready to head north again as the weather changes. It’s hard to think that we’ve got to learn how to pack up for travel again, and slog slowly along the highway. Good thing gas prices are lower than they were last winter…
