Craigslist: House on wheels for sale


Derek built his own tiny house in 2007 as affordable, low-cost housing for he and his wife. They moved to a trailer park in Sonoma County, close to where he was going to school.

I happened to meet Derek at one of Jay Shafer’s tiny house workshops and was happy to get his perspective on building — having just finished his own very unique Tumbleweed-style abode. Jay himself called this house “innovative” and Michael and I were impressed with the amount of work it took to incorporate RV hookups, preparing the home for a true trailer park life.

The couple lived here for a year but due to the needs of an expanding young family, this portable tiny house has been put up for sale on Craigslist. It is definitely worth a look — from the description I can understand the huge amount of thought and resourcefulness that went into creating this home. He is asking $34,000 $29,500 and their RV park rental is $550.

Take a tour inside.

(Thanks Lynne!)

This is wonderful! I checked out the Craigslist ad and was really impressed with how nice it looks on the inside. They did an amazing job on this.

Hi Everyone! Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in our house and posted the craigslist ad to this blog. I would like to post more pictures of our house on this site if someone could help me figure that out. Otherwise, anyone who is interested in buying our house can email me directly with questions and I can send photos.
