We're building a 175 square foot tiny house on an 18’ Tumbleweed custom trailer. In our first episode, we’ll fill you in on what we’ve been up to that’s led us to building a tiny house. Then we’ll get started putting in the insulation, decking and framing the walls.

  • THE BUTLERS - 11 months ago

    We were thinking of using a goose neck trailer ? Any recommendation on if it's a good idea or not ?

  • Michel Lajoie - 1 year ago

    Love you guy's but your sound is uneven... Us of a shotgun or lavalier type mic would improve it.

  • The Random British Columbian - 2 years ago

    Wow, you guys are building really fast for no experience, I have lots of building experience and my build is going really slow. Are you working on it full time?

  • Just Me - 2 years ago

    If you fail to plan , plan to fail. Lot easier on paper. Thanks for all the sailing videos really enjoyed them. Looking forward to your videos in the future. Keep on keeping on!

  • James Matthews - 2 years ago

    Well I'm looking forward to your new adventure watched all your baby blue videos new name possibly true blue cuz you both are to each other

  • K Gifford - 2 years ago

    My husband says your saw shouldn't be smoking like that. Probably your blade is on backwards (or it's dull, or even the wrong kind of blades). It will still cut that way but you will be burning through your wood. Did you notice the extra smoke mixed with the sawdust? Anyhow, hope that helps save you on blades =)

  • James Matthews - 2 years ago

    Well I'm glad I found you two again maybe you can call it blue steel thinking about the Blue Roof

  • jrmooreofOhio - 2 years ago

    Found your new site, will look forward to your new adventure. Interested in seeing how you do the floor plan. Also would be interested in knowing how you calculated the final weight of this tiny house to be sure that you were under legal limits and within the towing capacity of your vehicle. Did you find a program somewhere? Are you planning to have A/C and heating in this house, and what kind.

  • Curt Kencayd - 2 years ago

    I have been following your sailing channel for a long time now and was saddened to hear you'd be leaving the water. But, my fiancé is all about the tiny houses, so we are here to stay! Can't wait to see what's in store for you two. Have fun building your new home!

  • Jon Baldry - 2 years ago

    Been following your sailing adventures almost from the beginning, absolutely fascinated to see what comes next :)

  • Diana Hammond - 2 years ago

    I'm looking forward to watching this adventure unfold! I'm no build expert, but wondering if you don't need to leave some leeway for trailer-flex (my own made up word!) since you intend to take this out on the road? What other special measurements have to be accounted for to make it road-worthy?

  • Joker45678 - 2 years ago

    Do you have to worry about weight limits? Do you have to weigh it after it's finished to get tags? On another video, can you explain why you chose building versus buying a used 5th wheel camper.

  • Uncle Muir - 2 years ago

    It is quite funny to see you two transition from Baby Blue to your trailer. I have enjoyed watching and hearing about your travels. Wherever you lay your hat is your home. Relocation for a job should not be a problem. Traveling is the same just the mode of transport is different. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe you two lived through a home remodeling, cruising a sailboat with just an icebox for two years, and now building a small home to live in and travel. You'll be fine. I am from California but I have spent some time in upstate N. Y. and Connecticut and it is a great place to hang out in. I will follow along on the fun with you guys. I look back and realize I have lived a great portion of my live living out of a suitcase and have no regrets.Keep the videos coming. It's all good. Good luck to both of you, just look at what you have accomplished so far. P.S. have you thought about a name for the trailer?

  • wilsnich02 - 2 years ago

    I really enjoyed your Baby Blue series and have seen some pretty cool mini homes on youtube...  I think there is a New Zealand youtube channel on mini homes. For one or two people I think it is a great alternative especially on a budget.Congrats on buying a home land base, I think that is a really smart move to be doing it now.Great first episode and I have already subscribed.

    happy new adventures!!!!

  • Jorge Anchia - 2 years ago

    Love the transition from sail boat to tiny travel house. Very excited on your next adventures.

  • Lee Cummings - 2 years ago

    I was initially bummed by the "Not going to sail for a while," but the tiny house thing is kind of interesting. I think I'll keep watching and see how this thing turns out. I want to see y'all wearing safety glasses. Young blind people isn't cool. Good luck.

  • Robert Cowick - 2 years ago

    All the best on your new adventures!

  • ariel blumenduft - 2 years ago
