Whittled Down – Adventures in a Covered Wagon

Libby and Tristan build this tiny covered wagon on a shoestring and have now completed the finishing touches, now they can really begin to enjoy their tiny house adventure. Their plan is to move to New England after living in Santa Fe, New Mexico for some time. You’re catching them at the beginning of their cross-country trek.

The house is built to be light enough to be towed by a small car with a 1000-pound tow limit. It sits on a 4′ by 8′ trailer and has a canvas covered roof. This should work well while the weather is warm but they have not ruled out a future winterizing modifications.

You’ll notice a lot of nice design touches like the dutch door, solar panel on the roof, ample storage, simple solar shower, and cat comfort zone.

I first read about this project on Tiny House Blog.
