That is awesome! Who needs more than that? And beautifully done. 5 stars.
That is gorgeous…and so much more sensible than paying for hotel accommodations.
This is beautiful and so brilliantly built!
Wow! This is both beautiful and practical! I am impressed at your ability to use sustainable materials and non-chemical treated wood. Thanks for sharing this!
I have seen a ton of these and this hands down is the nicest looking most well crafted I have seen. You have serious skills brother. I have been a carpenter for over 25 years and have built custom teardrops, I am building my tiny house next.
This is very beautiful! Well done!!
I love your little house! Can you tell us more about it – how much did it cost to build – would you build one to sale? What size truck is needed to tow it? I want one, have been looking at RVs but not overly fond of the chemical smells it them. Thanks!
Thank you! It was roughly $10,000 I have a pile of receipts I have yet to add up. A large chunk of that was the trailer ($2500) & windows ($1800). I would love to build as many tiny homes as possible. The weight is somewhere around 3500, I plan on weighing it soon to know for sure so any vehicle that could tow that would be great.
Blown away by the skill and beauty of your little home away from home….. gorgeous best friend also !
Is it possible to make one of these, a little larger (with a small bathroom) ? I am very interested….
Thank you! It is definitely possible to do that. My email is Frankbelo@hotmail.com. I would love to talk about it more.
all-wood, I especially appreciate the different colors of the back wall, made from recycled leftovers ?
Indeed! A few scraps from my shop & a lot of pallet salvaging around town.
i think you are a artist this looks so perfect x
Wish you were in England your work is fantastic, love your Tiny House . Xxx Sue g
So beautifully simple. I would love to see the plan you used and more on doing it Green.
Beautiful craftsmanship! Thanks for sharing it!
Please contact me about building a tiny home. Thanks Alvah
Hi Alvah, I can be reached by email at Frankbelo@hotmail.com.
It’s beautiful, and I agree – you are an artist, as well. Love the decorative use of different colored woods.
This is just lovely and shows great carpentry skills. Absolutely gorgeous!
I love the simplicity and functionality of this tiny house. What a great job. I’m gonna have to steal some ideas. Love it!!
Beautiful craftsmanship. Please give updates on your experiences living in a small space. Love your traveling buddy! He is adorable!
Love it! Someday… for me just two things I would change/add. Move the light from the foot of the bed to the head for book reading. Outside porch light.
What size is the trailer?
The best advertisement you could have is your lovely home.
The craftsmanship is exquisite. Beautiful job. Your building is great advertising!
This house is beautiful! You do really nice work and it is a clever use of space.
Just beautiful….especially the wood behind the bed.
This is really beautiful – the wood, the way the table tucks in, the accent wall – sweet!
That is simply beautiful! You have a perfect showcase for your carpentry skills. In addition to beauty, it is so functional–you don’t even have to get out of bed to get a drink of water. Good job!
Beautiful job, Frank! Love everything about it!
Amazing… nice work!
Ah your tiny home is gorgeous, and so are you and your dog! x
Wonderful! An excellent showcase of your carpentry skills as well, very smart. i wish you had told us what your dog’s name is.
Impressive proof of your talent as a fine carpenter. Beautifully done!
Please contact me, I live in south western Va. and I’d like to build one of these. I’m a paraplegic and I have some skills that would help with this project. You’re welcome to bring your tiny house with you and park it on my property that runs along the Jackson river, Virginia’s only trophy trout stream.
Sounds beautiful! I can be reached at Frankbelo@hotmail.com so we can talk more.
hey just wondering about the trailer you used, whats the GVWR rated at?
love this house looking to build one any chance you can come to Canada and helping. 🙂
Love it, very well done. Thanks for the inspiration! Build another one! 🙂
Hi, I love the wood detail. I live in WNC too! Do you build small houses for others?
Thank you! I would love to build more tiny houses, I’m in Black Mountain. Feel free to shoot me an email at Frankbelo@hotmail.com.
I total agree with all the comments. It’s a remarkable skill in carpentry you have. Not wasted space, all beautifully done. I do wonder on the GVWR and length. Can a SUV (5.7lt) pull it ? I so wish mine can!
Love all the different wood and the dog too.
Bravo, Frank! Everything gleams with the pure balance of form and function. And your beloved fur-friend appears to be very well cared for. No doubt s/he loves having you so near.
Can’t wait to see this in person Frank! It’s absolutely gorgeous.
Frank! Do you and your pup want to come to Alaska this summer and build some cabins? No mosquitos, I promise… check out my place on website …Homer, Alaska
Beautiful and so compact..and what a great smart way to showcase your work! Happy travels
The carpentry work is well done! Love it!
What are your the dimensions? It is beautifully done!
As a carpenter myself, I say very nicely done. I am curious, how did you make your attachment for your table to sit on the pipe?
Luv the wood variations. Nice custom touches.
Friends and I have talked about tiny house building. Myself, I would rather invest my budget in beauty than size. Your craftsmanship is absolutely top notch. Well done indeed!
There’s nothing like true craftsmanship. It shows throughout. I want one!
What a beautiful tiny home! Fantastic job! I hope you get many years of enjoyment from it!
WOW! I want one just like this.
Great Job!! I love it!
That looks nice and cozy! Very nicely done and great use of space. Its like a portable cabin.
Really really like the carpenters home but would put a slide out porta potty underneath the bed where the clothes slide out and then empty it in the morning. Solarize the roof so you can use an induction cooktop.
Are you by chance travelling to louisiana?
I’m so impressed with your work! Beautiful Tiny Home. Are you still a Traveling Carpenter? Send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you head into Illinois.
This is a beautiful piece of artistry! It’s quite beautiful! Have your travels taken you to New England? I can think of carpentry related jobs up this way. I so would love to share this beautiful Small Home with folks here in W MA, so they could see the possibilities! Thanks for sharing this gem!
Your tiny home is your best business card, it radiates quality workmanship. I LOVE everything about it.
What a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, it speaks by itself for your carpentry skills. My grandfather was a carpenter, I’m sure he would have loved to have seen your work.
what is the length and width of this home? it’s perfect!
This is absolutely stunning, I would gladly stay in this for days on end.
Two things I noticed straight away with the exterior: (1) It’s low in height so all one level, (2) a small porch. The layout of the windows are great in that you have them exactly where you need them and none over your bed area, so nice and dark(ish) at night. The wood panelling on the bed wall has been done in such a fantastic way it looks like a mosaic. Obviously the only drawback is bathing/toilet facilities, but as you are a travelling carpenter you will/should have those facilities where you are staying. You are a very talented man who has built himself (and dusty) a lovely little home on wheels, and I wish you both so much luck with your travels and adventures. Well done.

You are so gifted! I think you should build one in the yard across the street from where you grew up! 🙂 Yes, my yard!!
Hope to see you next time you’re in town.
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Fantastic job. Thank you for sharing.
