The Nest Tiny House on Wheels


“The Nest” is a tiny house on wheels (6’x6′) with a storage loft. It’s my second tiny house. You can see my first one, “The Darling” here.

I lived in this one for 7 months, then because I was making plans to work in AZ in a contract position, and would be going back and forth from AZ to NC so much, I sold that tiny house and bought a tiny bus.

It was green with a stained door. You can see it all below.

I lived in this one for 7 months, then because I was making plans to work in AZ in a contract position, and would be going back and forth from AZ to NC so much, I sold that tiny house and bought a tiny bus. And I love it!

    Marsha, I don’t know what work you are doing, but you should really consider going pro designing tiny homes. All 3 of the one’s you’ve done are fantastic.

    • Avatar Marsha Cowan

      Wow! Thank you so much, Marcy! I have thought about it…

    • Avatar Debbie

      I completely agree with Marcy!!! Your style is just amazeballs adorable!!!! I LOVE the shabby chic mixed with rustic simple beauty. You pull it all together perfectly! 🙂

    Rick, it weighed about 3700 at most. It was built on a 6000 pound axle, so the give and take in hauling would not stress the springs to their max. It was very easy for my Ford Explorer to haul.

      So Marsha what is the square footage of the darling? Do you have the plans for this cute home? Would love to build this one.

  • Avatar Maria

    Marsha do you have the plans for the nest? I would like the plans to build one.

  • Avatar Charlotte Mo

    You lived in this full time for seven months? Cute as a space to read or relax away from the family, but full time would be a serious test of my seriousness for “Tiny.”

    May I ask how you handled showering/toileting in the Nest and the Darling?

  • Avatar Kristen

    how much did it cost to build?

  • Avatar Danielle

    Swoon! I’d enjoy having a cute little thing like this one! I love just how tiny it is, very cute! I like your style. I’ll tell my children, when I am old don’t put me in a “home” just get me a tiny house like this to stick me in.

  • One of the sweetest little micro home’s I’ve seen in a long time.
    I’m wanting to create a single axle 12 foot camper with old barn wood and corrugated tin roof. You’ve given me ideas. Thank you!

    Absolutely adorable!

    All 3 of your Tiny homes are so charming! I love your style. Using your children or a camping site toilet/shower facilities helps keep the homes small. I love your various showering solutions!

  • Wow… this one is really tiny and yet looks really cozy. It kinda has a french country style inside.
