Macy Miller's 196 Sq. Ft. MiniMotives Tiny House on Wheels

MiniMotives Tiny House

Macy's MiniMotives tiny house sits on a 24' by 8' flatbed trailer and it has about 232 square feet of interior space including the sleeping loft.

If you exclude the sleeping area it's just a total of 196 square feet. The reason she built it on wheels was to get around codes and zoning easier.

MiniMotives Tiny House

Her goal was to build something without a mortgage using as many reclaimed and recycled materials as possible. Since December of 2011 she has been building it on her spare time with her boyfriend and dad in Boise, Idaho. It started on November 17, 2011 when she bought Go House Go: How to Build a Tiny House on Wheels by Dee Williams. Two days later she acquired the trailer for just $500 and started getting to work right away.

The design was created for two adults with the possibility of a baby coming into the picture with just a little bit of modifcations. And that's a good thing because she's pregnant now.

So far she's spent around $11,416 on the house. Not too bad but remember that she's done all of the labor herself and she used lots of reclaimed materials.

I'm impressed with the amount of storage that she was able to squeeze in here underneath the bed. I also like the staircase that doubles as storage that takes you up to the bed. Really nice setup! Let me show you the bathroom next...

Bathroom and Shower

I love the modern bathroom. And the toilet is actually one of those fancy composting toilets that are actually really expensive. But I hear they work quite well, too. Some folks hate them, others love them. A bucket works for some, and this works for others while the rest keep flushing, right?
