I thought you might enjoy an updated tour of Art’s SIP tiny house on wheels so you can learn more about how he lives tiny. Art actually parks and lives behind his rock climbing business. Pretty cool, right?

If you’ve been a reader for a long time you’re probably already familiar with Art and his Structurally Insulated Panel tiny house on wheels but in this video based post you’ll get to learn a lot more about him, his lifestyle, and his tiny house on wheels.

Art is also a presenter for Tumbleweed Tiny Houses where he teaches other people how to build tiny houses too. In this video, the awesome people behind Tiny House Giant Journey take us directly into his tiny house where he’s been living simply for the last few years.

I think you’ll like this Vagabode tiny house built by a young couple.

It’s a 175 sq. ft. micro home built right onto a utility trailer.

They designed and built it for full time living to simplify their lives and reduce their impact.

With no prior building experience, they set on a journey to build it. And they did it.

This is Art’s SIP Tiny House on Wheels. SIP stands for Structurally Insulated Panels. They come pre-manufactured with insulation and everything. All you have to do is put the panels together. Don’t worry, at the bottom half of this article, you’ll see how it’s all done.

The outside of Art’s house was covered with 100-year-old reclaimed cypress from around the area in Louisiana. You would never know it was built with SIPs from looking at it, right? Much of the trim and structural supports for the structure are antique pine that was removed from barns and other buildings in the surrounding area.

Inside you’ll find fresh and locally milled tongue and groove cypress to clad the interior walls and ceiling. The flooring is antique pine salvaged from the surrounding area. When you walk inside it actually feels roomy thanks to the 11′ ceiling. The couch triples it’s service as a convertible guest bed while serving even more with storage underneath.

Be sure you take a look at the way Art designed and built his loft ladder because it folds up in a unique, space-saving way that’s great for tiny houses. Enjoy!

The pop up house is offered in a variety of configurations and is a form of prefabricated construction.  They take pride in offering a variety of customization options for clients (windows, doors, layout, and more).

The core of these houses consist of SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) which Ryan at The Tiny Life explained the other day.

I like the large galvanized metal roofs that The House Port uses to protect the units from the elements.  They are similar to large warehouse-like carports… I guess we can call them House Ports.
