I am pleased to show you the latest tiny house to leave our shop and find its way to some very excited owners. I hauled this beauty down to Driftwood, TX where it will live for a year or so before moving right back into the Rockies. A family of three contacted me in late Spring this year to discuss having me build their dream home. The program requirements were pretty grand: 30 feet or longer, two lofts, a bedroom, a murphy bed, full size appliances, a full size tub/shower, stairs, A/C, LOTS of storage, an electic mix of gingerbread traditional, and rustic modern. We collaborated a few months getting the design complete and had to wait til mid October to begin construction.
From a RMTH standpoint, you can throw just about every superlative on this house you like: longest, tallest, heaviest, most difficult to tow, most complicated, most expensive, most delayed, most man hours, and most fun! The project came in on budget, but our completion was delayed two weeks due to a late delivery of all the beetle kill wood.
I’m not going to write up a whole lot more about it, because I actually made a video tour! My camera and impromptu documentary skills really suck, but I think you’ll get a pretty good idea of how this house feels and functions. Also below this are some photos of the exterior, the haul, and a few interior stills.
A few quick stats for the curious:
- 30 foot 15,000# triple axle trailer chassis custom fabricated
- about 12,000# dry
- 197 sq ft on the main floor and about 100 sq ft of loft space
- 4″ EPS foam floor and wall insulation, 6″ in the ceiling
- advanced wood framing
- $89,000 as shown
