Tiny House Village

Hello! This week, my fellow students and I decided to make a tiny house community! Well, in my case, a tiny, tiny house. I have decided to build the Gypsy Junker from Deek Diedricksen (I'm going to re-name my Gypsy Junker to the Gypsy Awesomer!). Here is a video to show you about it from Tiny Yellow House:

We all decided to make mini models so below is my finished mini model (I will show you my fellow students' models as soon as they are done).

(Ella's 'Hickshaw' from Deek)

I can't wait to get started! There will be more to come throughout the process. My mother/teacher made us promise that all of the materials we use in our homes have to be repurposed and recycled. By the way, I finished my Tear Drop trailer birdhouse (I actually finished it two months ago. Details, details.). Here is a picture:

Have a great week! Next weekend I am going to a tiny house workshop; there will be plenty of pictures to come!


  1. Your vintage trailer birdhouse is adorable! Same color scheme as my tiny vintage trailer home :) I'm Mariah from, and I'm writing a book about tiny houses and would like to interview you! So impressed with what you're doing. Could you send me an email ( or get in touch through Hope to hear from you soon!

  2. Watching your 7-minute video was worth it!I really admire you for putting in the effort to build that tiny yellow house. I’m really surprised on how you built that house with salvaged materials. You’re so resourceful!
