This is a 16′ curved roof tiny home on wheels by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses.

A lovely young woman from Georgia commissioned us to design and build this unique tiny house. Having seen and admired the features found in our Boulder and Front Range models, but also being really attracted to the curved roof line of the Leaf Version III tiny house, and of course wanting to customize the house to meet her needs, she put her trust in us to deliver a fantastic product.

We start out with a custom 16′ heavy duty trailer chassis and stick frame the superstructure using advancing 2×4 framing methods. The curved top plate is easily attainable by laminating thin strips of wood together at precise geometric constraints. We applied a very similar reclaimed tin and cedar siding motif in rainscreen fashion. The radius of the curved roof was gentle enough to carefully bend standard pro panel roofing along the surface. Windows were strategically located to take advantage of our advanced framing methodology, optimize light and view, and coordinate with the floor plan.

This off grid tiny cabins retirement story is a guest post by Michael Scheer – share your tiny house story here too!

My name is Michael and about 5 years ago I wanted an off grid place for vacation and retirement. Like many others I am tired of bills, bills, bills and knew I would never have enough money to retire on unless I became debt free and my home was paid off.

A couple years passed and as things happened I had a friend who went through a divorce (I recently moved out of my ex-girlfriends home 8 months prior) and he needed help monetarily in order to buy a home and asked me to move in. The move cut my rent in half and enabled me along with my bonus check to purchase some land I found in northern AZ at about 6500 ft elevation. Summers are mild with highs in the low 90’s high 80’s and winters are in the 40’s and 50’s with light snow. I picked up 6 acres for less than $4k.
