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.

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.
