Annelies used recycled materials from the 2011 earthquake in New Zealand to build her own Tiny House on Wheels for just $19,000.
She’s a furniture-maker, and thought building a tiny would use many of the same skills, but she said the house challenged her, for sure! It features a lovely weathered exterior and a quaint cottage feel on the inside, complete with a lovely old-fashioned wood stove/oven!
This is the story of how a young family built their own DIY tiny house on wheels for only $8,000 USD in only six months.
They started construction in August, 2015 and are almost completely finished (the bathroom is being finished within the next couple of weeks).
This family will be living tiny with their two year old son. The project started with a restored 1976 Winnebago travel trailer that had been stripped. It was built by the married couple with help of two other family members. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
It’s built on privately owned land where residents are developing their own DIY community.
Residents get to use the land for free in exchange for developing it with other structures, farming, and more. In the future, we believe more vacant land owners will allow this sort of arrangement. What are your thoughts on this community setup? Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
