This is the story of a World War 2 railway train car turned tiny house! It’s very artistic but also functional, for example, the large multi-functional sink in the kitchen and the rather spacious and luxurious bathroom. I think you’ll really appreciate this little home. According to Dan and Annabel, on the Living Big In A Tiny House episode, the couple who own it, spent somewhere between $25,000-$30,000 to build it (including the cost of acquiring the train car).
One of the most noticeable features is how they cut a hole in the roof to add on a roof addition with windows that give you relaxing views, the feeling of more spaciousness, and it also helps ventilate the house during the summer as well as keep heat in during the winter. Just wait until you see the full video tour below then please let us know what you think of Dan and Annabel’s incredible train car tiny house in the comments. It’s pretty theatrical, isn’t it?
“This is an original U.S. Army WW2 Ben Hur trailer that I purchased from a farmer in Waterville 20 years ago. It’s all original except for whomever painted it orange decades ago. Anyway, it’s all in working condition and has served me faithfully all this time with never a problem. Two Novembers ago I had to come up with a very affordable place to sleep for a few months and building this little cabin into the trailer was my solution. I designed and built it myself and it is solid, insulated and very cozy. Great ventilation thanks to dual roof vents and the opening windows, which are vintage. The interior is all tongue and groove pine. Exterior is all cedar and clear polyurethane coated. The bed deck is Queen mattress size, (mattress in photo not included). It’s basically a super comfortable sleeping space with lots of storage. The trailer bed is 4×8′ and the camper dimensions above the trailer bed side level is 62″x9′. I am 6’1″ and I can stand in the middle at the foot of the bed. It served me very well and has been a great impromptu guest bedroom where I live now. But, I really don’t need it anymore and am lightening my material load in life.” (source: http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/rvs/4928871470.html)
