The Flying Tortoise Tiny House

Flying Tortoise Tiny House

I don’t know about you but some of my favorite tiny houses are those which the owner/builders have put in the time to design and build with reclaimed materials. And Colin’s coastal cabin totally embodies that look and feel with his tiny rolling house.

Using Reclaimed Materials to Build Tiny

Colin’s friend, Steve, taught him how to use salvaged materials a few months prior to getting started. Get the complete tour and story of how it was built over here at Kent’s blog post on Colin’s tiny house.

How the Heck do you Build on Wheels?

Colin, the owner/builder of this house, also used Go House Go by Dee Williams and the Tiny House Construction Guide by Dan Louche to learn how to build it and to guide him through the processes of building a wood framed house onto a trailer.

22′ Extra Long Ynez Tiny House on Wheels by Oregon Cottage Co.


Photos by Oregon Cottage Co.

One of the neatest features of this Oregon Cottage tiny house is that it’s got some extra length on it. This allowed them to design a built in closet and storage up in the sleeping loft which I think is pretty much crucial if you plan on living in something like this full-time or for any extended period of time. You’ll see what I mean below.

Awesome Little Kitchen in a Tiny Home on Wheels


I really appreciate the large sink because when you have no dish washer and you like to cook at home you’ve got to have that space to wash your pots and pans and such. It always bothers me when folks use really small sinks in the kitchen. Unless of course it’s because they don’t ever plan on cooking. But that’s something I can’t live without because I love home cooked meals more than anything.


Sleeping Loft with Storage & Mini Closets


This sleeping loft actually looks extra spacious compared to most. I also like it because it has a little bit of a Japanese style vibe to it which is something I usually appreciate. When you turn around, though, the look changes a bit for me and I think it’s mostly due to the metal handrail which you can see below.


Still good! But to keep that Asian look going I probably would’ve used some kind of natural wood. I still like this though.

Bathroom with Normal Flush Toilet and Shelving


Storage in the bathroom in a tiny house is a must. And you’ve got it here. Also notice the little cabinet towards the bump out of the house in the photo above.

Tiny House Plans: The Tack House Plan by Chris & Malissa


The Tack House is a 140 sq. ft. tiny home on a trailer. The trailer is 7′ x 20′.

The gable roof and dormers really add to it and must make it feel spacious in the loft.

There’s also extra storage space because of the dormers too which is awesome.

This tiny house has a total of 11 windows including a skylight.

Check out the latest photos of Chris & Malissa’s tiny home on wheels.

More Exterior Photos of this Double Loft Tiny House


Notice the swinging porch cover. I thought that was pretty simple and clever and hadn’t seen the idea being used on any other tiny houses, have you?


The idea of removing the tires from the trailer for a while is a great way to preserve the tires and save money on that.

The tongue of the trailer is being used to store propane.






Let’s go inside!

Interior of the Double Loft Tiny House


Notice the Dickinson Marine Heater inside. It’s one of the most expensive options for heating little homes but it’s certainly one of the best looking and most space efficient too. You can get one here.

“As for the experience of being in this 210 square foot house, while I can’t officially live here, I did design it to allow for that someday, and have spent many hours in the space. I have tried moving everything in to see how it fits for the photo shoot.  In short, it’s quite perfect.  There’s room for 175 books, a full sized keyboard and guitar, bar, KitchenAid stand mixer & attachments, a 10 tray food dehydrator, bread machine, 75+ mason jars, sewing machine, suitcase, printer/copier, bags of tools, etc.  There’s even room left over for a combo washer/dryer in the closet (the one thing I’ve felt might be missing).  Most important to me, this all fits without feeling at all cramped or cluttered, and with room for 10 guests to sit comfortably.” (Source)

“Here’s a little bit of my tiny house building story and some of the things I learned in the process. I hope this information will help or possibly inspire a few future tiny house builders, in the same way I was greatly supported by all you guys who shared your stories before me. The best things about this project were the support I received from friends and family, and getting to learn so many new things this year.” (source)

Building a Tiny House on a Trailer (Video)


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:

Building a Tiny House on a Trailer (Video)

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.

Having a Get Together in a Tiny House


Who says you can have too many visitors when living in a tiny house?

Sure looks like a great time the folks in the picture above are having, wouldn’t you love getting together with your friends/family outside of your tiny house like this?

I know I sure would! And to me, hanging out with friends outside is usually more enjoyable for me than doing it inside.

The park model size for tiny houses I think is better for most of us even though you’d have to hire a professional driver every time you’d want to move it.

What do you think? Would you consider a Park Model instead of a “tiny house on wheels” so you can have a little more space and width?
