The house design was inspired by steamer trunks, ships and gypsy caravans, and its builders said it's almost ready to hit the road.
Chloe Barcelou and Brandon Batchelder work on movie sets -- she's a stylist, he's a carpenter -- and they designed and built their tiny dream home on a tiny budget.
"It's almost entirely made out of recycled materials that we've got from movie sets that we tore down, and we took all the wood," Barcelou said. "We found a lot of stuff at flea markets, thrift stores."
The house is designed to collapse so it can be towed.
"And then when you park it, you crank the ship's wheel, and the roof actually hoists up, and there are walls that fold out like a cardboard box, basically, and the roof sets on," Batchelder said.
The house has an office, a bedroom, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. It even has a hutch for their rabbit.
The two said they plan to add a water catchment system, a solar panel, closets and a porch.
"It really feels very personal, but also like home in a way neither of us has experienced before," Barcelou said.
"We've never lived in a space we've created," Batchelder said. "It's a really unusual, really wonderful feeling."
