Property Description

This ain’t Your Pappa’s Cookie-Cutter Trailer!

I’m selling my one-of-a-kind hand-built Tiny house as I am moving shortly to an even more mobile home – a steel-framed yurt!

Tinyhouses are framed and built like a brick-and-mortar house, but anchored securely to a flatbed trailer to make them mobile! This means they are far stronger and robust than an RV, and far simpler to maintain or renovate. All construction, electrical, gas, and plumbing work is the same as a normal house. No expensive or hard-to-find RV parts or appliances! It looks and feels like a real house. Tiny houses are designed to be super energy efficient. This is not some BS buzzword dropping. One week of showering every day, cooking 1-2 meals daily on the stove, running the refrigerator, lots of air conditioning and endless hours of computer usage consumes about 12kWh, or $1.20 worth of electricity. This is possible due to the large amount of insulation in the structure, the small volume of air needing to be kept under climate control, and the use of energy efficient appliances and light-bulbs.

Use a tinyhouse as a guest house, travel trailer, detached office, camper, studio, hunting lodge, or live in it fulltime!

Technical Details

* 20ft long house with porch. Soaring 10ft cathedral ceiling and second-story loft (fits a queen-size bed!).

* All exterior sheathing was painstakingly glued and screwed to frame rather than just nailed. This means the exterior plywood is inseparable from the frame even under extreme winds. No amount of curb-hopping or potholes on the road will effect this bad boy.

* Subfloor and exterior sheathing are bolted to the trailer subfloor with stainless steel brackets and then directly to the trailer frame using special wood-to-steel anchors. The structure is built to withstand highway wind speeds indefinintly.

* The rafters are double hurricane-tied to a double top plate. The roof of the structure exceeds hurricane code.

* Subfloor, walls, and roof all exceed the R-value recommendations for Region 2 (Hottest zone in Texas). House maintains a steady interior temperature with nearly no energy. Thick ISO foam fills the all the spaces in the frame and all gaps were filled with expanding foam to eliminate drafts throughout the structure. Additionally, the radiant barrier sheathing reflects 97% of radiant heat back away from the structure.

* Entire house is plumbed with PEX and sharkbite fittings. 100% leakproof, flexible, and freeze-resistant. Won’t crack or break even after 20 years on the road!

House Details

* 5 Large energy efficient windows floods the house with natural light while keeping you cool.

* Beautiful live-edge juniper lap siding.

* Corrugated steel roof withstands high winds and shrugs off hail.

* Energystar under-counter refrigerator/freezer keeps your foods icy and your wallet full!

* Handcrafted enameled-bamboo vessel sink with waterfall faucet in bathroom.

* “Humanure” Composting toilet! (a standard flush toilet can be painlessly installed by any plumber, the plumbing’s already there for it!)

* Full-size fiberglass shower. No suffering through the horror of showering in a cramped wetbath!

* Dimmable fixtures in the main room and loft save you money, help set a mood. All lightbulbs throughout the house use the universal “standard lightbulb” (A19) base. No hassle to find/replace/match strangely-shaped/hard-to-find/expensive bulbs!

* Giant 24x16in stainless steel kitchen sink

* Twin-burner LP gas stove costs only pennies to operate. Cook during power outages!

* State of the art tankless hot water heater – hyper-efficient unlimited hot water in the shower, bathroom, and kitchen!

* Second-story loft with room for a queen size bed!

* Open-style pantry with customizable shelving and a large wardrobe fits all your food, clothes, and tools!

* The Fresh Water, Propane, Electric, Wastewater hookups are all standard – the house is ready to be parked at an RV park, attached to your house in the backyard, or live off-the-grid with solar panels or a generator.

* USB outlets built into the walls next to the sofa and bed! Charge your gadgets directly from the wall!

* Gunstock Oak Wood laminate floors – tough, comfortable, and super easy to clean!

* Crisp, clean design is welcoming and spacious

* Covered, lit cedar deck with removable steps for sipping iced tea or beer after a hard day at work!
