This Handcrafted Tiny Home On A Trailer Feels Like A Rustic Farmhouse

Nicholette and Mitchell hand-built their first tiny house on a brand new eight foot by twenty foot utility trailer. The couple spent 14 months building the portable structure.

Individually, we were pushed to look at a lot of things in ourselves.  The experience of building together has made us stronger psychologically, emotionally, and physically.

Now it’s located on a 1/3 acre farm near Reno, Nevada and can be yours for $65,000.
