Elisabeth was ready to get out of renting, and had always wanted to build a little wooden house at some point. She actually wasn’t even aware that “tiny homes” were a movement until she began hunting for supplies. Much of the home came from reclaimed materials — things she found at the salvage yard or flea markets and repurposed. Oh, and she only spent 5000 Euros on the build!
She lived in the home for awhile in the mountains, but eventually found a farmhouse on land in Spain where there are orchards, nut trees and an olive grove. Now her Little Wooden House is a vacation rental surrounded by nature.
This is the story of how a 65-year-old woman decided to build her own DIY tiny home on wheels using reclaimed materials.
It took her two years to build it herself almost all by herself. That’s pretty awesome, isn’t it? She also raised the money to do it herself.
Vera Struck built her tiny home on an 18′ trailer. When you go inside, you’ll find a sleeping loft, living area, bathroom, kitchen, closet, and more. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
In 2010 and 2011 an Earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand causing a great amount of damage and a whole lot of salvaged material. With what many saw as destruction and waste, Stephan Cook saw as a great opportunity to get high quality material for a low cost. With the material, he built what is known today as the “Biggish Tiny Home.”
Coming in at about 215 square feet, this tiny home is a sight to see! Complete with industrial windows and doors, Stephen’s home includes an open floor plan which gives the illusion that the house is bigger than it actually is.
It also includes a sitting area, full kitchen, eat-in bar (which has a lovely outside view when the windows are open) and a loft upstairs which holds a queen sized bed and closet space.
This tiny home also has a refrigerator, hot water boiler, oven and air heater. Situated in the lush woods of Christchurch, this tiny home has it all. Great location and a fabulous story behind it. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thanks!
