Tiny Mobile Office Built on a Salvaged $300 Boat Trailer

Jenine is almost done building her third tiny house on wheels.

“Jenine Alexander likes to built tiny structures on wheels. And she loves to find her building materials in the dump or on craigslist.

Her first handcrafted mobile home cost her just a couple thousand dollars. She only paid for the trailer and fasteners; the rest was salvaged. Her second tiny house on wheels she built with a business partner during the summer of 2010, using salvaged windows and doors.

Her latest craigslist find- a $300 duel axel 18′ foot boat trailer- became the foundation for her latest mobile, small shelter. With another $200 and a lot of searching, she found all of the framing lumber, Redwood tongue and groove siding and salvaged doors and windows.”
