Utility Trailer Hides a Secret Treehouse

Caley was tired of living with roommates and spending so much money on rent in Boulder, Colorado, so he decided to convert a utility trailer into the ultimate stealth home on wheels! While the outside looks like a metal box, the interior has magical Hobbit-hole vibes with hand-carved and hand-sculpted wooden elements.

Since he lives in the trailer full-time in the Boulder area, he needed to include a kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom — as well as a spot to work when he’s not at his local printing business office. You’re going to me amazed! Enjoy!

  • Caley was living in Boulder, Colorado with roommates and was tired of the rent.
  • He started building his trailer in the parking lot of the apartment complex where he was renting.
  • Because of his printing business, Caley needs to stay in the area to manage it, so staying stealthy allows him to live under the radar
  • He’s an artist at heart! The home is bursting with hand-sculpted and hand-carved elements that took him hundreds of hours to complete
  • In order to live full-time in the trailer, he needed a full kitchen and bathroom and stealthily added both!
