Beautiful House Built On A Flatbed Trailer


This 196 square feet home is remarkably designed and built. On top of a 24x8foot flatbed trailer, recycled or reclaimed materials were used to construct a much cheaper and beautiful residence. Wooden pallets are used for the siding and the roof is of elastomeric or expanded aluminum. Every inch of the interior is used to the maximum. Carefully picked decorations complement the all white interior paint.

A large living and kitchen area share the space with a large comfortable bed on top of shelves and storage facilities. A combination of brick and wood panels and wallpaper make you notice all the little decorations that make the whole place livable. The interesting 3 piece lamp, above the cozy lounge chair, challenges the uniqueness of the lights above the stove and kitchen sink. All in all, this way of building a home is cheaper than a full house, and it also gives you a little bit of mobility as well.

  • Thank you for featuring my home-made tiny house, DIY style. I designed and constructed this entirely by myself over 18 months. This cost just over $11K to construct, it is paid off and very do-able for anyone, really! I have been living in it full-time and rent free for the last six months with my Great Dane. The whole thing is documented step by step at my site, I definitely encourage ANYONE to look into this lifestyle further, less really does mean MORE!

  • Heya i’m just for any major time period the following. I found this kind of aboard and that i in locating It genuinely useful & it taught me to be outside very much. I’m hoping to produce the one thing yet again and aid some others such as you made it simpler for me.

  • Why not purchase a 32-40 foot travel trailer for $3-4k and then use another $3k to make it self-sufficient? Then it’s already titled properly saving time and money.

    Not trying to be a downer, just wondering why starting from scratch instead of re-purposing?

    • The problem with that Nick is that the travel trailers are built so cheaply as their main goal is weight savings. 1X1 construction, poorly insulated, and “RV” quality appliances, plumbing, wiring, etc. means constant battles with upkeep, leaks and other money-sucking problems. I’ve had many RV trailers and speak from 40+ years of experience.
