There is nothing more satisfying than making something with your own two hands. This is especially true if you build your own home.

Thanks to the Tiny House Movement, more and more people are getting the opportunity to design and construct their own pint-sized abodes. This is due in large part to affordability, but the fact that there are so many tiny house resources online that offer support, workshops, ideas, and inspiration really helps the movement expand and evolve.

Case in point, some companies actually post floor plans online and sell the raw materials needed to create the house of your dreams.

Tumbleweed is one of these companies, and their design called “Cypress” is a favorite amongst tiny house enthusiasts for its traditional craftsmanship and floor plan specifically devised to maximize small space living.

When someone decides to utilize the Cypress model, usually the exterior stays pretty much the same, but it’s fascinating to see how different people customize the inside.

Airbnb user Hannah is one of the many who decided to build her very own tiny house using one of Tumbleweed’s most beloved designs, but what makes her version different is the creative touches she used to make it her very own…

Hannah decided to build her house on wheels, that way she had the freedom to move it wherever she wanted.

Looking at the interior during this phase, it’s hard to believe that it would eventually have so much space that Hannah now claims she has “more storage than I can fill!”

The exterior shows off a traditional design, with clean cedar cladding and purple accents to make it pop.
