Tiny Houses

Several months ago, I asked my Dad if he could use his woodworking skills to make a dollhouse/playmobil storage case for my girls. We needed something that wasn’t too big so that it would fit in our new home easily. Dad finished his part pretty quickly, but it took me a few weeks before I got all the decorating finished and the girls could finally play with it.

This week has been a big exciting week for my family because we have finally sold our house and will be moving into a small one room apartment for a few weeks until we get our RV to live in and travel full time. If you want to know more about why we are moving into an RV, you can check out our ministry BecauseFamily.org and our fundraising campaign.

Because living in an RV with four kids means we won’t have a lot of extra room, I wanted to make sure the toys my kids play with the most had the right storage as well as playability for the small space.

Dad put together the box to be sturdy but easy to carry with enough space for the Playmobil guys and the tiny bunk beds he had made for them.

I painted the outside then “wallpapered” the inside with scrapbook paper and modpodge. Dad used cedar wood for the flooring. So fancy!

Dad put it all together with hinges and a latch to keep it secure for transportation.

They love it! Their tiny house will fit perfectly in our tiny house/RV.
