Beautiful Wagon Style Tiny House Built with Reclaimed Materials

This tiny house was originally built to be a canvas-covered bow top wagon but was recently renovated to add insulation in the round walls as well as a metal roof. The woodwork in this home is absolutely stunning, with a custom standing desk, a curved kitchen counter, a sofa that converts to a bed, handmade windows, and an ornate dutch door. It was built by Nick who also created the folding tiny house that we featured a couple of years ago here:

Caravans like this can be quite dark inside since it’s difficult to have windows in a canvas cover. This is another reason why Nick modified the original home to have solid walls so that he could add dormers for extra light. The house has simple systems: it is heated with an antique wood stove, it’s powered with a 110-volt panel, and water comes from a hose that can be hooked up to the kitchen sink on the outside.

    The Arches are always very strong that's why you see in Old buildings and castles even without mortar they have angled Stones over doorways and gravity actually holds the archway up or all those bridges that are arched just because there's more strength than a large than a straight line Bridge. One of the reasons that old trick of trying to squeeze an egg in the palm of your hand you can't break it

    Love the kitchen the gypsy wagons I saw sometimes the kitchen was at the back cuz it was a little longer being a trailer type thing the best one I ever saw was a door to the right of the kitchen and it went into a full-width bathroom behind it you would never know what is there shower toilet it was great so it made the living area a little shorter… who cares

    The only thing I would like to see is a little bit bigger or more drop down table that went out into the area so you could have more seating for dining if you happen to have a few guests because those drop down tables are wonderful for that because they disappear

    Wow, that's absolutely beautiful. Affordable to heat, light and airy, and with everything in it you could possibly need. Gorgeous woodworking too.

    Theres no concept of proper washrooms / toilets in tiny homes.. because u dont offer prayer so no concept of keeping yourself clean.. yea..

    So very beautiful. I keep watching these, and even if the space becomes smaller in some videos…. I absolutely love them. I wish I could do this. I really do. I'm 65 now. I don't have the capability in terms of building, but I know I could adjust myself to living in something like this. In fact, I would have to expand my life (and my thoughts) to live in such a beautiful place. Not sure how to contact you. Not sure if I could really do it. But I'd love to hear more.
