Tiny Home on Wheels

“Brothers Adam and Aaron Leu stand on the porch of their “tiny house,” which has been bought by a Kentucky couple and will be transported there. The house, approximately 130 square feet, includes a kitchen, bathroom living room and loft. It took the brothers about 3 1/2 months to build.”


About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. Well done, guys. Really tiny, really nice.
    I assume it's 8' wide, so it meets travel regs for a trailer-house, or a "park model"? So, it must be about 16' long.
    Either you two are rather tall, or the ceiling is less than 7' high.
    Total cost?
    Nice opening to the deck.

  2. I also wondered if they were really tall or if the porch roof was low. The chair looks really small next to them too.

  3. Thanks for posting this Lloyd! This is Adam Leu, one of the builders. Had someone email me and say they saw us on your blog. Not sure how you linked the pic from the local newspaper all the way out in CA! And yes, we're both 6'7". We were planning on just doing this as a one time build, but with as much interest as we've got we're considering doing more. Thanks again!
