You Can't Go Tiny If You're Tall. Or Can You?

Wes Sekeres enjoys small spaces but found it challenging to design a Tiny House RV for his tall frame -  6'4." He, like many others, was initially worried about feeling claustrophobic or cramped in less than 250 square feet.

"It was a necessity for me that the bathroom FEEL big; that the kitchen FEEL big; that the living area FEEL big." - Wes Sekeres

In order to achieve his open and spacious design, Wes decided to build his tiny sanctuary on Tumbleweed's new Low-Wider trailer, which maximizes height and width by building around the wheel wells.

Wes noted that attending last year's Tiny House Jamboree was really helpful in his design process. At the event, he was able to tour multiple designs, speak with builders and ask questions. 

He recalls discussing his plans with Tumbleweed workshop host, Mario Soto and other Tumbleweed employees at the Jamboree. "I wanted to consider everything," Wes explains. "They were very helpful."

As a carpenter by trade, Wes was able to build the majority of his Tiny House RV alone and/or with the help his close friends. His tiny oasis has a washer/dryer combination unit, sliding barn door, the Separett composting toilet and a luxurious L-shaped couch. 

"I love that other people love it! I'm big on hospitality, so it's nice to have a Tiny House RV that others find unique and exciting." - Wes Sekeres

One item that Wes really wanted in his design was a tile bathroom. Many Tiny House RV owners shy away from tile due to weight, expense and durability on the road. This is also why drywall is not recommended for many Tiny House RV designs. That being said, can you have tile and/or drywall in your Tiny House RV? Of course! Wes researched a variety of products and chose a tile that is extra durable and lighter than many others on the market. 

Wes has subway tile on the back wall of his tiny bathroom and his entire shower. His contemporary interior design gives his Tiny House RV a "big city" feel.  

"My Tiny House RV is a perfect blend of two things I really love: a simple life and custom carpentry." - Wes Sekeres
