My Tiny House Cargo Trailer – What’s Behind the Curtain?

I’m hoping in the near future to share the process of purchasing and converting a cargo trailer into a tiny house, which I will probably use as a writing studio in the near future.

I absolutely love this space – from the stand up desk, to the huge stainless steel sink, to the squishy tri-fold mattress that also turns into two couches. I have massive amounts of storage thanks to multiple Husky workbenches, which also serve as the foundation for my furniture and come pre-wired for power. Paired with Bluetti batteries, I get plenty of watts while my solar panels bask in the sun, and when it’s cloudy, I can recharge via a generator, or by plugging straight into an outlet.

I’ve learned a lot along the way, and would like to share the ups and downs and things I would have done differently, so if you’d like to know more, please like, subscribe, and share, so I can know if there’s any interest.

Here’s a sneak peek video of the back end of this work in progress:

I’ve still got more work to do; but have lots of footage I could start sharing, if anyone wants to see the highs and lows, humor and hardship of trying to turn a box on wheels into a tiny hideaway.

Thanks for reading what I’m writing,

Maybe this isn’t an appropriate place to put this; but I’ve thought a lot about how I love to be still inside this space I’ve built, which reminds me of last summer, a couple of weeks after my mom passed away, when I was reflecting on the tender balance between being still and getting stuck.


I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
