Still shopping for your own tiny home, even after "Portlandia" poked fun at the trend? If so, here's one that just hit the market.

For Karen Dehn's granddaughter, it was the perfect spot for a sleepover. But this 70-square-foot abode wasn't always parked at grandma's house.

In the late 1800s — before the days of RVs and tent trailers — this wagon was home to a nomadic sheep herder in search of greener pastures. Led by horses through mountain meadows, the wagon is one of thousands that made its debut on the Western prairie.

But while most were eventually outfitted with rubber tires or replaced entirely, this one was found in Miles City, Montana, transported to Wyoming and restored to its sheep wagon glory.

"You've got a bed, a little wood stove to cook on, a table that pulls out and two benches," Dehn said. In 2003, she and her husband replaced the original canvas roof with a metal one, added a bay window above the bed and installed electrical outlets. They left the wheels and stove untouched, however, to preserve the wagon's integrity.

"Sheep wagons have small stoves, but the key is to get an original one," Dehn said. "That's what everyone wants."

Since hitting the market for $25,000, the home-on-wheels has attracted two serious buyers — both ranchers looking to add a bedroom to their property.

"It's a great place to sleep," Dehn explained. With no bathroom, it's designed to be an extension of your home for guests or tenants.

"Some people may also just want a fun playhouse," she added.
