This Custom Built Gypsy Wagon Tiny House is a guest post by Eric Elliot.
I decided that it was time to build a tiny house when the rent on my studio apartment doubled. I didn’t want just a simple, boring box, so I decided to build a modern gypsy wagon.
I began by making a model, which was very helpful, since my idea of canting the walls out, in the traditional style, turned out to be a big mistake. Every angle would then have to be separately calculated, so I decided to simplify things and build the walls square instead.
Since the wagon was going to be small, even by tiny house standards, (just over 100 square feet) I wanted it to be as comfortable as possible. I was working on a limited budget, but I spared no expense on insulating the walls, roof, and even floor. That was the best decision I made on this project!
I’ve always wanted to built a house with my hands, and this was my opportunity to make every element attractive. I built a diamond pane bow-window for the bedroom, and made all the windows in the wagon stained glass. Small vent windows at either end allow for a nice cross breeze.
