My Darling Tiny House on Wheels
by Marsha Cowan
I bought a 14' trailer, but because of poor construction, had to build a 10'long house instead which meant really changing the plans, but now that I have it, I absolutely love it. It is built mostly from scraps, bargains, and recycled materials including old 100 year old stable boards from which I pulled a gallon bucket full of old rusty nails. The boards were used for the outside and inside of the home and add a very warm rustic feel against which I put a lot of white trim and furniture. There is a composting toilet. I worked on the house for 2 years, and now have been living in it for 2 weeks. Just built an off grid solar generator for some power, so now I sleep with a fan pulling in wonderful cool air through the windows. It's great!
