This couple purchased the travel trailer so that they could completely re-do it. It was pretty banged up as you could see (especially the inside). But just shows what you could do with something that already exists. Just takes time, patience, a little bit of money, and lots of labor.
They completely gutted it and rebuilt it from scratch and I think they did an amazing job. They even rented a garage just so they can do this. Read the complete and original story with even more photos here. It was later put up for sale as you can see here.

“I wanted to have a cabin on my property for quite some time now but with the economy, The prices of having one built has more than doubled… So i had to build it myself . Six years ago i bought a 12×16 shed from a well known company by where i live. It cost 2,000.00 for them to build it and drop it off. Now that same building would cost 4200,00 dollars.After i was finished with this building with the door and 3 windows the total amount i spent was 2200.00 dollars.” (Source)

If you’ve ever imagined building a tiny house on wheels for yourself you might be in for quite a journey. It’s not as easy as it looks! Building a house, even a tiny one, takes time, dedication and commitment. Here’s one woman’s success story in video format as sort of a time lapse of her tiny house construction project:

She used Tumbleweed tiny house plans to build it even though she ended up straying from the plans a bit to add her own personal touch.
If you want to learn more about how to build and live tiny I recommend an upcoming workshop where you can connect with others and immerse yourself with learning through experience.
