This is the story of a very unique tiny house in Australia with a pop-up roof loft. The family of three designed and built it themselves and one of the unique things about it is that the loft roof is able to expand upward once the home is parked.

So whenever they want to move the house, they can collapse the roof down so that the house meets the applicable road laws. Pretty smart, right? They even did it in a way that it truly looks permanent once it’s set up! Pretty amazing, don’t you think?

This is the Laurier Tiny House on Wheels by Minimaliste. It’s a 365-square-feet tiny home that’s 10-feet wide and 32-feet long. As you may already know, Minimaliste designs and builds modern and very comfortable tiny houses thanks to the extra width they’re willing to build.

Normally, a tiny house like this is best if you’re staying put in one place for a long period of time. In other words, if you don’t plan on moving around very often. This is a great tiny house to park somewhere on your own land or maybe in a park model community and just leave it there and enjoy it for a while. And of course, if you ever have to move, you definitely can! A tiny house like this has pretty much all of the amenities you get in a residential-quality home including some extra space. High-quality materials, craftsmanship, and extra space do come at a cost, though, and this unit starts at $128,000 CAD which is approximately $96,605 USD. It’s a lot of money for sure, but after looking at it, I think it’s hard to say it wouldn’t be worth every penny, what do you think?

This is the story of Tyler who is an engineering grad and the tiny house that he built for only $15,000 USD thanks to the help of friends, family, and recycled materials. Isn’t it pretty cool that tiny houses on trailers can be an inexpensive and mobile housing option?

Update: Of course, it’s 2021 now, and today, this tiny house would probably cost much more to build because of the rise in lumber prices and other building materials.
