Recycled Pocket House: Custom Rustic Cabin on Wheels


Part prototype, part experiment, but entirely excellent, this mobile shelter was a design/build labor of love from its scrappy start to its rustic finish.

Aaron Maret made this 200-square-foot structure mainly from reclaimed and salvaged materials and local upcycled hardwoods.

After spending time downsizing and living in it himself, he has put the building up for sale … and unfortunately been criticized by some for his $64,000 asking price. Sure it is a lot per square foot, but unique and custom come at a cost – critics are of course welcome to construct their own.

From its creator: “This tiny house on wheels is a synthesis of thoughtful design, detail-oriented craftsmanship, and a healthy dose of patience. Five years in the making (longer if you count the design time), this has been a labor of love and a playful experiment in alternative construction… and living.”
