Jenine’s Tiny House for Sale

Jenine's house

I have covered Jenine’s tiny house as she built it in the town of Healdsburg several years ago. At the time we only lived a few miles apart and so I was able to watch her progress over several visits. Jenine’s life has changed and it is time for her to sell her beloved tiny house. Here are the details from Jenine. You can visit her earlier posts here. On a trailer, UpdateOpen House, For Sale “once before”

Buy A Legacy And Invest In The Future

Airstream is a brand of luxury RV manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio.  Even though the company employs less than 400 people it is the oldest recreational vehicle manufacturer in the nation. Airstream trailers are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded aluminum bodies. This shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus who is perhaps also known as the chief designer of Charles Lindbergh’s plans, the Spirit of St. Louis.  Besides having a rich history they are probably more well noted for looking like a silver bullet barreling down the highway with their shiny facades and streamlined curves.

One of the families who not only recreate but live in an Airstream – of which there are many – are Jason and Kristin Snow. An adventure-addicted couple in their early thirties who walked away from corporate jobs and a conventional life in 2013 to travel a new road, the two have been met with less routine and more serendipity, minimalism, self-reliance, and new friends at every turn. They are a dynamic couple with a unique tiny house and an awesome opportunity for another adventurous soul!

The Snows (known online as The Snowmads) are now selling their beautiful 1965 26-foot Airstream Overlander International.

The Airstream was completely gutted and renovated over the course of a year after spending many years of her life rotting away in a barn. A true one-of-a-kind, the Snow’s restored their Airstream from the frame up to feel more like a tiny home than a travel trailer, but with all the functionality to easily pick up and move anytime. Thanks to the addition of solar and a composting toilet, its new owner(s) can even park off the grid indefinitely!

The Snowmads are only selling her (and it breaks their hearts, to be sure!) because they want a smaller, motorized RV that will fit in some smaller spots in both backcountry and urban areas. They are willing to make it a great deal for anyone interested in buying their Jeep Grand Cherokee tow vehicle too as a package.

Jason and Kristin have lived and worked full-time in this trailer for a year now, covering 35 states and nearly 15,000 miles. They’ve been everywhere imaginable with the trailer, from RV parks, to friends’ driveways, to dispersed camping in the mountains of Colorado. This unique, cozy Airstream would be perfect for anyone who loves vintage and wants one that’s ready to go right away without the time and investment of undergoing a renovation. She’s perfect for the full-time traveler, weekend or vacation camping, as a mobile or home office, a stationary tiny house, or a vacation home.

Handbuilt Gypsy Camper Dream Home

I’ve been a custom furniture builder for over 15 years and I started to become unfulfilled in just creating high-end furniture. At heart, I always enjoyed the simple things and when I built my first tiny cabin home for my daughter to live in I felt like I found my niche in creating handmade simple dwellings.

Last winter, my fiance and I dreamed of building a gypsy-style camper on the back of an old truck. A month later we found “Buddy” a 4×4 1960 Dodge Power wagon with the perfect faded patina and we started to work on this unique project.

It became a fun challenge with all of the curves and angles we incorporated to accomplish the traditional gypsy vardo style we were inspired by. We used as many reclaimed materials as possible in the construction of it. Most of the wood was hand-scraped and not sanded which adds its own level of character.

The truck we started with has only 52,000 miles on the original flathead six engine that runs and drives great. We have been on three long distance trips in Buddy creating smiles everywhere we go.

We are offering up this unique traveling tiny home for sale at $14,500.

Check out our video and learn more about Buddy:

My passion is building handmade alternative structures from nails and wood to straw and mud. I would love to help make people’s simple living dreams a reality. Please contact me for custom tiny home projects or alternative dwelling construction. We are in Idaho planning to relocate to Southern Oregon this summer, but can travel for custom orders.
