I think you’ll like this Vagabode tiny house built by a young couple.
It’s a 175 sq. ft. micro home built right onto a utility trailer.
They designed and built it for full time living to simplify their lives and reduce their impact.
With no prior building experience, they set on a journey to build it. And they did it.
