Zach & Leala from Big Hearts Tiny Vegans designed this unique and beautiful 24-foot long tiny house and built it from paycheque to paycheque, as well as with gifts of time and materials from family and friends.
It cost them approximately $40,000 CAD ($31,175 USD) to build the 200-sq.-ft. house, including the cost of appliances.
They Built The Tiny House Over Time On A Limited Budget
This is the story of how one man designed and built a stealth tiny house on a trailer for only $4,000. He started with a 6×10 cargo utility trailer which he outfitted to function as a micro home/camper that you can tow with almost any vehicle.
And yes… He did it all for less than $4,000 USD including the price of the trailer. From the outside, you would think it’s just some sort of work trailer, right? But when you step inside, you’ll find a living area, kitchenette, bed, and more. Would you ever consider building your own micro camper like this? What would you do it with it? Where would you go? What would you go see?
When they started, they really didn’t know much about building a house. They just learned and adapted as they went. And they did it.
Now, after much hard work and sweat, they have the simple lifestyle that they once only dreamed of. A debt-free life that’s sustainable. And they did it all themselves. Now that’s something to be proud of, isn’t it?

I’m thrilled to show you Ben Barthell’s 200 sq. ft. solar off-grid tiny house that he built himself on a recycled 24′ x 8.5′ trailer (so yes- it’s mobile). This DIY micro cabin has all of the amenities of home but I’d say it’s even better because:
It’s completely self-sustaining.
It can power itself using a solar panel energy system.
It’s built mostly out of recycled materials.
It meets all quality construction standards.
Best of all, it’s affordable, easy to maintain, and light on the environment (and the wallet). What do you think of it?
