SunRay Kelley describes “natural building” as observing the world around you and finding ways to integrate the designs and materials. The Washington-based artist, who is nationally recognized for his treehouses and sculptures, also recycles vehicles by building them out as gypsy wagons.
This Gypsy Wagon is one of the many unique builds on his remote 9-acre property.
The cedar-sided caravan was built on a Toyota Dolphin front end. It has large windows on both sides, as well as skylights and a large front window.
The tiny home fits about four people and is perfect for a couple or family with kids.
Note the elaborate glass artwork on the door. The craftsmanship of this build is seriously unmatched.
The back door opens to reveal a very cozy interior with a kitchen and two sleeping areas.
There is a bed in the overcab area and a couch that can be easily converted into a second double bed.
The small kitchen opposite the couch has an icebox, sink, and a stove. The wagon is also steps from their outdoor kitchen where there is a fridge, stove, toaster, grill, plates, and utensils.
It’s also a short walk from their outdoor shower and bathtub, which overlook a trout pond. The tiny home has its own composting toilet on board.
The roof and overcab were built with large windows and skylights. These let in plenty of natural light during the day and make for some awesome stargazing at night.
This is the view from the front, looking in.
And the view from the passenger’s side.
SunRay’s large, secluded property is a world of its own. Guests can take walking paths through the woods to see more of his builds including the Mush Room and a wood-fired sauna.
