This is the story of a couple in Dallas, Texas who are building a tiny house on wheels.

Cody and Randi made the decision to go tiny at the end of 2014.

By March of 2015, they got the trailer and started to build.

They plan on living and traveling with it for about a year.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This is one couple’s DIY Tumbleweed tiny house on wheels.

Outside, you’ll notice darkly stained pine clapboards encompassing the tiny trailer house. The trim is a periwinkle blue and the roof line includes two side dormers for extra space when you’re in the sleeping loft.

When you go inside, you’ll find a drafting desk, stand-up desk that doubles as storage, kitchen, bathroom, sleeping loft, and more. The couple took about seven months to build it. They plan to continue making improvements while living in it.

Do you think you and your partner could live in just over 100 square feet?

This tiny house couple interviewed each other about what it’s like sharing a small space with the person you love. They asked questions like:

  • What do you do when you fight?
  • What is the BEST part about living in a tiny house with someone else?
  • What is the WORST part about living in a tiny house with someone else?
  • How has living tiny changed your relationship?
  • What is the ideal Valentine’s day gift for a tiny houser?

What are some of the pros and cons? Always knowing where the other person is, but never being able to sit quietly and read without being interrupted. When you get sick, both people will almost definitely get sick, but you are close and can take care of each other.

And best of all, tiny living can give you freedom. If this couple didn’t live a tiny house, they’d still be in LA and at 3:30 in the afternoon and would be sitting in cubicles (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Hear it all below!

In this post I wanted to share the story of how this young couple left their apartment life and built their own 128 sq. ft. tiny home on wheels that’s 100% mortgage-free.

When they started, they really didn’t know much about building a house. They just learned and adapted as they went. And they did it.

Now, after much hard work and sweat, they have the simple lifestyle that they once only dreamed of. A debt-free life that’s sustainable. And they did it all themselves. Now that’s something to be proud of, isn’t it?

Please enjoy, talk about this inspiring story in the comments, and re-share it down below if you’d like to. Thank you.

I’ve told you about Jenna and Guillaume of Tiny House Giant Journey before. Last time I got to share their new DIY tiny home with you thanks to Deek over at RelaxShacks.com.

Today I’m glad to tell you that they’re successfully on their way towards touring across the nation in their tiny house on wheels that they built themselves. And did I mention, they’re taking their 1- year-old Australian Shepherd with them? Yes! And the dog loves the loft and is able to climb up there with no problem.

Their 132 sq. ft. tiny house was built using Tumbleweed Cypress plans and a Tumbleweed Trailer which cost them between $25,000 and $30,000 in total to build. And they’re towing the house at a maximum of 50mph as they travel the United States and Canada. You can see their complete route and possibly meet up with them here.

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.
