More Small Space Portable Living: Little House on the Trailer

LHOT1-350


So it seems to me that there are more and more portable living options popping up these days. Last year I covered several portable dwellings. In January 2008 I covered the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. This year the Little House on the Trailer reminds me of the Tumbleweed.

The Little House on the Trailer is available in slightly more spacious versions up to 400 sq ft. Although essentially a mobile home, these structures are beautiful. With a much higher attention to detail than is normally found in traditional mobile homes, The Little House on the Trailer is more like high-end construction.

The owner of The Little House on the Trailer Company, Stephen Marshall, is able to achieve some very dramatic floor plans in these small packages. There are several versions available: offices, dwellings, and “art spaces” which are basically small studios.

The units come ready to be occupied — just hook up the plumbing and you’re in business. They are not inexpensive. The home pictured at the top retails for $65,000, but still a bargain considering the attention to detail.

Portable homes are a great way to add square footage to your existing home and an appealing mobile option for a starter home. Via apartment therapy.

interesting home but that's crazy for pricing though. rtm's are cheaper and very well made (custom to order)with excellent detailing and about 1/2 the price! And rtms (ready to move homes- not to be confused with mobile trailers) are designed constructional the same as a house as opposed to mobile..

Great idea...in the world of mobility this house quite justifies it's stand.I like the construction scheme also.
