My husband and I were living in KCMO (Kansas City, MO) with our 2 kids and 2 pups.

This is a 323 sq. ft. tiny home on wheels that was built by breast cancer survivor, Kristi Bugajski and her husband, Rafael.

With zero building experience but the determination, faith, and motivation to build their own home, the Bugajski’s completed their house in January of 2016.

After enjoying it for a few years, they are currently selling it because their daughter who is in college is living with them and they need more space (especially an extra bathroom). It’s currently for sale with an asking price of $85,000.
