It took married couple Edwin and Clara 2.5 years to build it, but they moved into their very own DIY THOW just a month before California went into lockdown due to coronavirus. Their home sits on 27 acres in Northern CA — the absolute perfect spot to shelter-in-place.
This home was a true labor of love, with it’s post-and-beam construction created from wood they milled at a friend’s wood mill! They were both incredibly dissatisfied with their concrete jungle lifestyle in San Diego, where they worked too many hours and struggled financially. Their DIY home cost $30,000 to build, but it’s given them a new freedom with their time and more connection to the nature all around them.
We got to interview the amazing couple, so enjoy the photo tour of their incredible home below and then read the Q&A! And don’t forget to follow them on Instagram @tinyhomewildadventures.

We interviewed Tim & Sam, the owners of Tiffany the Tiny Home, just after they moved into their THOW, and now it’s been nearly three years and they’re still living tiny!
In fact, the couple purchased a small island in Florida where they are in the process of building an octagonal tiny home on a foundation (@shellmate_island on Instagram) that they will rent out to others who want to try out the tiny life. They’ll continue to live in Tiffany, just in a more idyllic location they own.
Tiffany (@tiffany_the_tiny_home on Instagram) has such an elegant interior with dark trim, cream walls and stained glass windows. We caught up with Tim & Sam in our Q&A at the end of the post, so be sure to read that!
Meet April & Jason and their twin girls, Adalyn & Brooklyn, who live in California with their dog Jackson in an absolutely stunning renovated 5th wheel RV!
The couple DIY-ed the entire renovation and took the camper from drab and dreary to light and airy, resulting in a place anyone would like to call home. We interviewed April (@twinning_in_our_5thwheel on Instagram) about their tiny life, so after scrolling through all the pictures be sure to read the Q&A about life in an RV with kiddos!
This DIY pallet house is a guest post by Priscilla Crighton – share yours!
This is a pallet house built by engineering student, Angus Hughes. The house is located on his family property on the outskirts of Rockhampton and is just about water proof.
There’s no running water but electricity is available courtesy of a durable power cord running from the family shed.
“The size of the pallets dictated the size of the house which is three pallets high, three pallets wide and five pallets long,” Angus said. “The exterior and interior walls are made from pallets while the floor has been created from packing timber which was donated by a local glazing business.”
The second year civil engineering student, who is currently studying at Central Queensland University, recently moved in a few modern conveniences – fridge, TV and barbecue – along with beds and other furniture made by his father, making it the perfect student pad.
