It’s amazing what can be done in a small space and Ron Rusnak of Ashland, Oregon exemplifies that well in this trailer turned tiny home. Rusnak took an old trailer, gutted it and used it as the structure for an elegant tiny home. Even though this tiny trailer home will be used as a guest cabin, he thinks tiny homes could fill a growing need for affordable housing.
Rusnak netted $36,500 for the unique structure via a Craigslist ad just three weeks after he completed the renovation.
It’s hard to imagine that this 200-square-foot tiny home was once a trailer, but having the trailer infrastructure in place made it easier to add appliances and other items inside. The kitchen itself has 24-inch cabinets and a small range with oven, so those who like to cook can still do so. The kitchen sink has a pull-down faucet to help maneuver around larger dishes and pans.
There’s built-in storage in the living room, a sleeping loft with ladder, and a small stove, sink and kitchen space.
Clean, classic styling and sleek features make it easy to move around in this tiny home.
The shower is 32 inches, a good size for almost any person and the bathroom sink has a window, keeping it from feeling like an RV.
Fully insulated, with lots of natural light, Rusnak has made this trailer a true home.
Rusnak’s design comes complete with a removable cedar deck, which the tiny home's new owners are surely enjoying.
