Tiny house on a foundation...416 square feet of fun!

Our Other "Tiny" House

Summer Is Here - Time for Camping

image14

We spent the better part of the summer converting this 16' cargo trailer to a camp trailer. The interior height is 7' & the side to side measurement is also about 7'. Even with the "v-nose", we've got about 13' of length to work with inside. 

image15

We started with 2 Murphy-style twin beds on the sides at the rear. They fold down & meet in the middle to make a King size bed. We have electricity & water. We also have a Port-a-Potty (necessity for Roz), sink, storage for ice chests, crates & cubes. 

Kitchen Area

image16

Matt did a great job on the front area that we use for a kitchen. Since it's a "V-nose" trailer, we could've hada lot of wasted spaced if we weren't creative. The faucet uses both a pump or city water connection.

We replaced the ice chests w/ this fridge. The bottom has a drawer for storage. The picture is missing the drawer front, but it's on there now. It's great. Even Matt is glad we put the fridge in. He worked hard to get it all hooked up properly. 

Miscellaneous Storage

image18

Matt built this cabinet (& the one the sink is on & the ice chest one too). This is one that houses the table-top cook stove, pots & pans & games.

More storage...probably clothes. The cubes are held in with paracord run across the front.

More Storage Cubes

We each have a set of 3 cubes over our bed...probably for clothes & shoes.

A definite necessity when Roz is camping. Who wants to get up in the middle of the night, get dressed & walk half-asleep to the bathroom?

Below the Kitchen Sink

This is the water system. We didn't want to put in a true holding tank, so we just used a fresh water container & a bucket for gray water.

On the other side of the sink is our deep cycle battery & fuse box, along with some additional storage for cords. I've since put up a curtain to cover the under sink area. 

Rear Door/Ramp & Deck

image24

Although we have a man door near the front of the trailer, this is our main access to get in. It will also double as a deck since we have small bottle jacks that will hold the end up.

image25

We've put up a curtain so we don't have to shut the rear ramp door for privacy...we simply pull the curtain across.
