It all started with weekend trips in their tiny travel trailer. That soon escalated into traveling Europe full-time in a motorhome they call their hippie bus.

While they were traveling, they discovered tiny houses. After moving back home to their apartment, they got to work on their tiny house dreams. Today, they also build tiny homes for other dreamers.

This is the story of Route Del Sol, an all-electric, solar-powered motorhome. This DIY motorhome build is very likely the most powerful solar-powered campervan in the world today and this is how it came to be.

Since that very first exchange with the ticket booth operator, I have grown much better at explaining just what it is I am driving. In the most technical way possible (for me) I exclaim that, this is a fully electric 2010 International EStar, it’s an ex-Pacific Gas & Electric owned cargo van converted into a DIY solar-powered electric campervan.”

This is the story of Brother Paul Wright’s teeny tiny house that was built for just around $100 over in Dothan, Alabama.

You see, Paul has been building tiny little structures like this ever since he can remember, using wood and even cardboard as a kid to build temporary forts. So now, Paul is bringing that childhood energy to this little project so that they can have a travel trailer tiny house as well as a micro guest house on their property. How cool is that? Enjoy the full story and tour below (with more photos coming soon, too, hopefully)!

This is a tiny house with a real bedroom. It is Matthew Ryan’s tiny home on wheels and he started building at when he was only 16 years old. We told you about that on April 6, 2020 in this post, remember? Even though he did it for less than $8,000, it still took him two years to finish! It’s a lot of hard work to build your tiny house. But in the end, you can end up with something like this, which is pretty amazing.

Everyone seems to love the way that Matthew designed and built his tiny house and I think it’s because of the way that he built-out his bedroom. It’s spacious and lives like a bedroom in an ordinary house, even though it’s a tiny house on wheels. See below…

Marc & Jen (and their cat, Starla) from Box Truck Tessa are an adventurous couple who decided to sell their home, downsize their stuff, and try something new.

They wanted to re-design their lives according to what was most important to them: skiing, hiking, traveling, making music, and being self-employed. So they decided that a box truck would be the best way to accomplish that.
