I’m excited to introduce you to John Russell and Debbie Hanson. They’re a couple who’ve gone from divorces and 2,000 sq. ft. homes into a DIY 200 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels that they call their Ritz on Wheels.

It cost them only $15,000 in materials to build it themselves and just under a year in labor. Inside you’ll find all the comforts of home. A full-sized shower, kitchen, flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, and best of all… no mortgage. When asked by a local newspaper reporter what they do in the house, Hanson responded, “We sit on the couch. We eat. We sleep. We go to the bathroom. That’s about it.” To make best use of the space Russell created several multi-functional components in the house like the fold down table, wheeled furniture, and a large floor to ceiling closet/storage space. Please enjoy and re-share below.

This is the story of a remote log cabin in Alaska built by a man’s sons, friends, and family, all in honor of him. You see, the man you see in the wool cap, on the ATV, he was the one who was going to build this very cabin, on his very land.

But just two weeks after he purchased the land, he became paralyzed. This was in 1980. Then, twenty years later, his sons, their friends, and family, all got together and built the cabin he had always imagined and dreamed of.
