The Tiny House Guys created a tiny home on wheels – aptly nicknamed “Aero Tiny” – out of a part of a decommissioned training aircraft fuselage.

The Brisbane, Australia-based company specialises in creating trendy tiny homes, such as the self-sufficient loft-style Urban Tiny. The Tiny House Guys is also spearheaded by a tiny family team: the company is run by a father and son duo, Rick and Mitch Keel.

To give its builds the “on wheels” title, The Tiny House Guys places its homes on top of trailer bases made by a local tiny home trailer maker, according to the company.

This includes the Aero Tiny, which its makers say may be “Australia’s most unique tiny house” because of its build base, which was once a section of a Dash 8 twin prop training aircraft that had been decommissioned, according to Rick Keel.

The tiny home still has several components of its past life, including a functioning aircraft door, emergency exit signs, and the traditional aircraft windows. But otherwise, not much is left of its past.


The home is 130 square feet, not including the 35 square feet side deck.
