Going tiny with a family

You take one ratty camper, tear it down to the frame, then rebuild it, now it’s transformed into a home, and not just for one or two, but a family with young but growing boys. As I watched the tear down stages, it didn’t look like it was going to really turn into anything useful, that’s what we call the “ugly” stage, and ugly it was, I couldn’t figure out why he even bothered. Then I saw the finished home, and this can truly be called a home, it is quite magnificent.

Here are two videos showing the beginning and finished stages. He did this with very little building knowledge, he just did it. Much of what he used was either free or near free, recycled, Craigslist and getting chummy with the manager at his local Lowes. Altogether, it cost less than $5000.
