Amir emailed us this week to show off the awesome caravan wagon he and his 15-year-old son built together. It’s a space for them to hang out and work.
The story is that I wanted to build a small wagon for me and my son to have a place for recreation in our village.
So we built it on a small cart we found. Bigger than the cart. It has a small balcony with a kitchen.
And a shower outside under a tree.
I use it for writing and meeting people for coaching; and my son ( 15 y.o.) for hanging out with his friends.
I am an architect in my profession, and a coach. My son is in arts highschool here in Israel.
Now here’s a micro home for you! This handcrafted whimsy wagon has so much character in such a small space.
The exterior looks like something from another time, and there are lovely carved and painted details all over. Seating for two on the covered porch, and inside there’s a couch/bed taking up the back of the wagon. Some built-ins provide storage and a spot for a hot plate. And a stove keeps the place warm.
Three windows on one side open up to let in light and fresh air. It’s for sale for $43,000 in Rhode Island, and you can contact the seller here.
Staying in their “Wagon de Berger” means you have a quiet spot to rest on a 22 acre nature site with access to canoeing/kayaking, hiking, cycling, dog-sledding, ice fishing, sledding and more. Want to book your stay yet?
This Custom Built Gypsy Wagon Tiny House is a guest post by Eric Elliot.
I decided that it was time to build a tiny house when the rent on my studio apartment doubled. I didn’t want just a simple, boring box, so I decided to build a modern gypsy wagon.
I began by making a model, which was very helpful, since my idea of canting the walls out, in the traditional style, turned out to be a big mistake. Every angle would then have to be separately calculated, so I decided to simplify things and build the walls square instead.
Since the wagon was going to be small, even by tiny house standards, (just over 100 square feet) I wanted it to be as comfortable as possible. I was working on a limited budget, but I spared no expense on insulating the walls, roof, and even floor. That was the best decision I made on this project!
I’ve always wanted to built a house with my hands, and this was my opportunity to make every element attractive. I built a diamond pane bow-window for the bedroom, and made all the windows in the wagon stained glass. Small vent windows at either end allow for a nice cross breeze.

The exterior of this tiny home is beautiful, isn’t it? Once you go inside through the modern french doors you’ll find an open layout with a table, multi-functional sofa bed, built in storage, shelves, kitchenette, and a bathroom. All of this in a one level floor plan. That means no sleeping loft, no ladders, and no staircases.
How do you like this tiny house design? Do you think you can live tiny in it? Let us know why or why not in the comments and either way, please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
This 105 sq. ft. English Shepherd Hut Wagon Cabin is a guest post by Victoria Schon – share yours!
My name is Victoria and I discovered the English shepherd hut by way of a beautiful article written in the September 2013 issue of The English Home Magazine. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful photos of a little hut on cast iron wheels sitting peacefully in the beautiful and expansive English countryside of windblown summer grasses and wild flowers.
Inside, the hut was charming and inviting, decorated with fabrics of soft warm reds and ivory. The small space was filled with books, pillows, fresh cut flowers, a bed and a desk. This quaint tiny space felt cozy, quiet and rejuvenating. As I pictured myself there, I felt relaxed and inspired. At once I fell in love with the romantic notion that these little huts had restorative powers and I wanted to experience this for myself. I then filed away the article from which to draw inspiration in the future should the need arise, and moved on with my day.
Then something quite unexpected happened a year later. In the summer of 2014, I was driving my dog to the groomer. While stopped in traffic I glanced over to the side of the road to discover sinking into the ground, an old Wyoming sheep herder wagon at a farm market that looked as though it had been there for years! I had driven by that corner for the past 15 years and never even noticed it! I was instantly struck with inspiration and I envisioned myself building an English shepherd hut to match the one I had seen the year before in the magazine article.
As an interior designer, I could also put to use my experience in custom home construction and project management. This little project was going to utilize my complete skill set, experience and creative talents, and it was going to be so much fun! I could not wait to get started!
