Hal in Oregon sent me some photos of his stick-built vardo. It is sheathed in house wrap and wood-sided with a metal roof. Sturdy looking simple design. So far, he’s spent about two weeks on it and the shell appears to be nearly complete. This is a link to the album with more photos but I’m not sure it’s public yet. Please let me know through the comments if this link does NOT work for you. In the meantime, here are some photos posted by his sister Jodie:

I posted on this one last week! Thanks though, it’s a great one.

I don’t mean to spam, but I was looking for a way to email you but I couldn’t find an address! So I’ll have to leave a reply.
Hal’s Vardo is for sale!
Hal’s handmade Vardo is for sale for $15,000. It’s great for anyone interested in a Tiny home, guest house, or camper. It is 11’x7’3” on the interior with a 6’5”x2′ fold down deck off the back and weighs about 3,000 lbs. The full size brand new memory foam bed is atop ample storage and provides a view of either the 22” flat screen tv or bay window. Storage shelves have copper pipe accents that are carried throughout the Vardo. The beautiful cobbelwood floor sits atop a solid base, water barrier and rigid foam insulation. Walls and ceiling are also well insulated.
The curved ceiling is held up with Ceder purlins and bead-board in between. The roof is a 50 tin roof that extends over the back porch.
The kitchen contains a 2 burner glass-top stove, a dorm style fridge and stainless steel sink set into a ceramic tile countertop. There is a 20 freshwater tank, 6 gallon water heater stored under the bed and a gray tank under the sink. The interior boasts 7 plugs with some USB ports, cable hook-up, and 3 pipe and mason jar lights. The exterior also has a spigot and exterior plug.
There is a comfy bench that sits between the bed and the Shepard’s stove. A 2’x3′ table pulls out from under the bed to line up with the bench seat. The Shepard’s stove takes solid fuel and is surrounded by a fire barrier on the walls. The door is handmade in the dutch style with a plexiglass window. There are four exterior storage boxes under the side extensions and one contains the cable and power hookups.
All in all this is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship that will last for years to come.
