Meet Lauren and Patrick, Kansas City natives with wanderlust fever. In 2015 they decided to quit their jobs to build a Tiny House RV for a cross country roadtrip. The catch? They wanted to begin traveling by April 2016 and neither of them had any construction experience.

In order to get a leg up on their build, Lauren and Patrick purchased a Tumbleweed Tiny House Shell. By doing so, they saved themselves hundreds of hours of build time with the opportunity to cu and complete their own Tiny House RV.

Lauren and Patrick chose the Tumbleweed Linden design with customizations including a side door and skipping the porch to allow for more interior living space.

The couple picked up their shell on January 24th, and thus began their mad scramble to finish construction by the end of April. They worked 40 hours a week, and, over the course of three months they installed the siding, windows, roof, door, trim, insulation, plumbing, electricity and much more!
