He emailed me yesterday to let me know he has just completed and sold this little log cabin on wheels. And one of the reasons I’m thrilled to share it with you is not only because it’s completely unique and awesome throughout, but because I know you’ll love the genius flip up/down hinged overhangs.
One issue when building tiny houses on wheels is dealing with overhangs because we’re limited to a road width of 8’6″ in most areas. In this case, with the flip up/down design, you can have the best of both worlds… Check it out now right here for yourself and please re-share below.
Log Cabin Tiny House on Wheels with Flip Up/Down Overhangs
After building his ‘Boulder’ tiny home on wheels, Greg went on a sabbatical trip for some tiny house inspiration where he saw this tiny log cabin in Stanley, Idaho:
My travels took me through a wonderful little town called Stanley, in the midst of the magnificent Sawtooth mountains and along the Salmon River in Idaho. Stanley Stanley Tiny Houseis probably my single favorite town that I passed through on this trip. It has a little bit of everything for the outdoor enthusiast. Scattered throughout the small town and along the outskirts are structures from a bygone era-beautiful, rustic, and tiny log cabins. After photographing a few, I knew right away that I had to build a log cabin tiny house on wheels and name it after this place. (source)
So Right After Selling his Boulder Tiny House, He Started Building the Log Cabin
He Applied Two Coats of Natural Tung Oil to the Floors
Greg Bolted and Welded the First Set of Logs to the Trailer
He Designed and Built Genius Hinged Overhangs (See Below)
And.. He Also Designed and Built a Hinged Flip Up Porch (Keep Scrolling)

A Nature’s Head composting toilet was also installed (but now shown here).
Custom Built Countertop Using Salvaged Maple Slabs
The kitchen drawers were built using reclaimed materials, too. And there’s a medium size sink, double burner stove, and a double door mini refrigerator in here too.

After all was said and done, I met all of my design goals. The final dry weight came in at 4,800 lbs, a bit more than I was hoping for, but with still within range. The final cost came in at exactly $22,000. Even though it is only a 12′ trailer, it feels very spacious and is very much livable . The log cabin construction method, although a bit testing at first, proved successful and very unique.
So, I think that about wraps up this neat little tiny house. I hope you enjoyed learning about it. For more updates, be sure to like the Facebook page. There’s also an album there with more detailed construction photos for those interested.
Our big thanks to Greg Parham of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses for sharing his unique, creative, and wonderful build with us.
