Couple Built Artistic $34k Tiny House

Jennifer and David built a lovely $34k tiny house. It’s a truly unique space that reflects their artistic interests and personalities. From concept to completion, it took four years for their home on wheels to come into being. Slowly collecting reclaimed materials from places like auctions and salvage yards, enabled them to keep the cost down. With that said, the top-notch finishes used and craftsmanship make this feel like a high-end home. Alternatively, you might say that it’s a living work of art.

David put his experience with stained glass to good use in custom windows and doors in their tiny house. Importantly for them, this adds beauty with an element of privacy. But to make the house road-worthy, they sandwiched the stained glass art with tempered glass.  Other top design features include an elevator bed. Additionally, a fold-down deck to give them outdoor living space no matter where they’re parked.

For years, Jennifer dreamed of being a traveling nurse. It’s a career well-suited for a home on wheels. Now that they’re empty-nesters, David and Jennifer feel free to live their nomadic dreams. Fortunately for them, their $34k tiny house made it easier to make the transition.

“If you can do something and you want to do something, and you never do it, the only thing you have later on is regret for not having done it in the first place. I never thought in my wildest dreams I’d be a pastry chef; that was not on my radar, but I did it. It was never on my radar to do stain glass, but I did it. It certainly was never on my radar to build a tiny house; it never occurred to me to do it until a random conversation we had on vacation to the Outer Banks.

I’ve always wanted to do this travel thing. So that’s what it is for me. It came down to why not? If you can do it, why not. It seemed like a perfect time. Our kids are grown and out of the house. We’re still young enough that we can go out and do things!”
