    Now THAT is minimalism! I love it.

    It actually inspires me on my project, which is somewhat larger but along the same lines.

    What a lovely traveling studio! I am impressed with how in morphs from art studio to home. I would love to see a video of this wagon- I am trying to visualize how the change-over and the fold-down work.

    I am also curious about logistics. Is the bike secured to the wagon so noone can make off with it while you sleep? How do you secure the whole deal when you are away from it, such as inside a store or restaurant? (I am assuming it generally comes everywhere with you.)

    Am I right to assume that you stay on flat roads? I can’t imagine going up or down a steep road.

    That is absolutely amazing I love it!

    Brilliant! I, too, would love to see a video of it collapsing/expanding. The design, ornamentation and just plain cleverness of this blows me away! Congratulations!

    I have been wanting to start a yarn shop (Albany NY doesn’t have one and I can’t be the only knitter/crocheter who doesn’t drive) I have a Schwinn Suburban though and access to a makerspace is there any plans you can share with me so I can take your base idea and turn it into a mobil yarn shop?

    Thanks so much for sharing this. Just when I think that my imagination for tiny houses is full, something like this comes along and challenges me with new ideas. That looks like a wonderful life on the beach.

    I am interested in the art work, is it for sale? I am afraid the micro-house is too small for me and the pups. Please can I get a response about the art itself?

    I would love to see you draw up some blueprints and put the up for sale.. I would buy a copy…!

    Would love to buy it……How much? You think it could make it back to my home in Homer AK? Thank you for sharing and by the way your art work is pretty phenomenal.
