Chase the Snow in a Tiny Trailer That Only Cost $6K To Build

California skiers are in the midst of a four-year drought that has wreaked havoc on Tahoe ski areas, with some heading to Jackson Hole, Colorado, or Utah in search of powder. But take a page out of professional snowboarder Mike Basich's book and build a portable tiny home instead. Basich already has an awesome, off-the-grid, 228-square-foot self-sustaining home near Truckee, California, but faced with poor snow conditions, he wanted to expand his options. And while some people just fork out the cash for a trip to a different state, Basich took $6,000, a 16-foot trailer, and a host of good ideas to create a tiny house on wheels built for chasing powder.

All the details, this way. >>
