Are you living in it?

We have been living in it since December, selling it to build a second tiny house then going to outfit a sprinter van to start traveling the n and s Americas and hopefully the world.

Have you found a place to put it yet?

Yes we live in an Rv park in Lago vista just west of Austin in the hill country

Living in it by yourself?

My girlfriend Brittany and I live in it. We absolutely love it and will continue the minimal and stress free lifestyle. Went from $1500 per month to all bills paid $490.

How’d you build it?

It was 2×4 framed in 24″ centers R13 batting in floor walls ceiling I sketched out plans on paper and my carpenter buddy did welding and framing then I took it over from there.

Who helped if anyone?

Just us and the frame builder.

How long did it take you to build it?

From September to the first of December, we were on a time constraint since our apartment lease was about to be up.

Was it your first time building ?

Yes this was my first build, once this is sold we are going to build a second house and park it on my parents ranch so when we go traveling we will be able to come back to our own place and move it where we want it.

A/C Update

Also I installed a 9000 btu Innova inverter mini split in March and no longer have the portable Ac unit in there. A lot of people were asking what the white tube was going out the window so I sent you updated loft pics without the portable Ac

    The dual storage stairs and loft sitting area are interesting variations. Great price, too.

    Certainly, priced to sell. Lovely place, good thought put into it and appears to be well built. Like the double loft a lot. Only drawback is no W/D. Boo-hoo. Build on 24″ centers I wouldn’t think it’s for snowy weather–roof loads with a bit snow would be a consideration.

    I love it, and so wish I could buy it right now. I have my trailer, just trying to get it ready to build on. I can hardly wait, so one ready now would be awesome. Great tiny home. I bet I could find a place to put a stack unit for laundry in there somewhere, LOL
