    I too have a 40ft trailer i want to build a tiny home on. I agree with the previous comment, my design has a proper stair well, a upstairs room with a upper deck. My problem is i only have two axles.

      Sounds like a great design!

      Ed to Sheryle, make sure you know what the axle capacities are so you do not overload them. And you can always add one or two since you have 40′ of trailer !!! I am building on a 40+’ 5th wheel myself 25k capacity 49′ overall ! 😏

    Corners aren’t always bad if the space is still used… Like you could use it to store the trash bin with a hatch door on the outside to access it for easy dumping…

    Alternatively if can be where you store other things like camping gear and again access it from the outside…

    I’ve also seen other creative ways the corner space can be used and not wasted… But yeah, if they just put a corner with no easy way to access it then it’s a bad design…

    I was told by a painter that dry wood and plaster do not have mold. It is the paint + wet that brings in the mold. Can’t go wrong with wood but I still like the idea of a floor/trap door in case of fire or strangers.

    It looks like a lot more than 288 sq.ft., and is so cavernous in it’s loft area…! The white pine walls are spectacular to say the least.. I also like seeing the wood burning stove, but was unhappy to see the electric heater next to the entrance door, as well as the smaller one outside of the bathroom… They are very inefficient, and sometimes are a fire hazard which I would think it being in this case installed in a finished white pine wall… If I’m wrong I apologize but they scare me to death as I have seen them cause fires in my time…. But with the exception of those few details, it is a nice park model…!

      One must be careful with electric heaters, for sure. I wouldn’t run one when I wasn’t home!

      • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN April 17, 2017, 2:59 pm

        In home or not, I wouldn’t….!

          That heater by the door does not look like an Electric heater ? it has a gas line going to it !!!! and looks Very much like a conventional propane or gas heater with a though wall vent.
          An electric heater would not need a through wall vent.

    At 40 feet in a lot of states, you would have to have a commercial driver’s license to tow it on public roads, OR hire a company to relocated it for you.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee June 16, 2017, 11:15 am

      Yea that’s unfortunately pretty standard with park models, which is what Rich tends to specialize in. However, if you only move it once or twice in your life, it could be worth the extra square footage!

      • Libby June 16, 2017, 1:43 pm

        That’s exactly what I would do. Close to my kids and their families.

  • EruditeOne June 15, 2017, 5:39 pm

    I think Sheryle Lakey may build a THOW with her 40′ trailer if, and only if, she uses Steel studs in SIP walls, ceiling and floor construction and metal roofing and exterior walls to reduce weight. If she uses steel stud SIP panels she may reduce overall weight by a few 1,000lbs. If she has 2 5,000 pound axles she may be limited to 10,000 pounds overal weight. To build such a large THOW under 10,000 pounds will be extremely difficult unless she pays extreme attention to wieigh of all materials. I don’t think I’d consider such a large THOW with less than 2 8,000 pound axles.

    If you look closely at the heater by the front door, it looks like it’s a gas heater, not electric. There is a pipe and cut-off underneath it.

  • Ed October 18, 2017, 2:37 am

    I think Michael is right, I saw your post too late (out of screen) when I made my remark above to the same point ! 😳 oops.

    What I wanted to remark on is EruditeOne’s post in regard to Sheryle’s build she would likely need to go to 3 7000# axles as on my trailer that gives you 21k GAWR and 25K GCVWR (Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating) as in the weight on the rear axle of the TOW vehicle and the weight on the two or three trailer axles. So the trailer is therefore rated at 25K GCVW

    BTW. I am not sure that 8000 # axles are a standard size?

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 18, 2017, 5:40 am

    I knew my eyes were bad, but I never thought that they were that bad..! How the heck do you see a gas line because I can’t see it for the life of me.. God bless you for the outrageously fine vision you were blessed with, as I still can’t see a gas line with a magnifying glass in hand searching for it….
