A Mostly Metal Tiny House on Wheels

This is a mostly metal tiny house on wheels built by one of the contractors for Seattle Tiny Homes.

From the outside, you’ll see metal siding, a barn-style metal roof, and plenty of dormers.

The house belongs to a woman with severe allergies who is even allergic to wood. It allows her family the freedom to escape to the mountains during allergy season and return to the city when the allergens have passed.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

A Mostly Metal Tiny House on Wheels

One of Seattle Tiny Home’s contractors is building his own tiny home at his property for his wife who has severe allergies. She’s even sensitive to wood. This family of four will be able to take their home with them into the mountains during certain allergy seasons and return closer to the city when allergies are less.

    I love your all metal tiny house. had one I would paint it with chameleon paint from alsa paint that would be so cool!

    Wonderful looking project! I would like to suggest, or ask, if the wife has ever gone through a program to eliminate the allergies? The one that helped me is Nutrition Response Testing! It is offered by a local chiropractor! And I live in a small town in northern Michigan! So it should be available to anyone living near Seattle! Best wishes!

      I also would like to see the inside. Precision is evident from the outside, and its manifestations on the inside would be very enlightening. My intent in criticizing chiropractic was to save lives and prevent decades of untreated pain; chiropractors manipulate their prey to stay away from doctors who could help them, in order to maximize fees, and to heck with what the fish (patient) feels.

    Dee Williams built a tiny house in Washington but is only allowed to live in it for several months out of the year. The agreement with her city was, she could occupy her THOW but no other person could ever be allowed to build, own and occupy a THOW in her town again. Am I to now understand that Washington has relaxed its position on THOW’s? If so, that’s great! I was just still under the impression that Washington (unlike Oregon) is hostile to THOW’s.

    Well, the outside work looks well done. Nothing I would be interested in having tho.

    So, this is unfinished. And I saw absolutely nothing about the interior layout. So, why even bother posting it? When I am here, I want to see finished products, with the inside shown, whether I like the thing or not. That is partly how I get ideas for how my own rig will be laid out, once I find the proper start. This offers absolutely nothing to me.

    Interesting and different approach to the tiny house. Are they planning to paint any of the metal?

    I’ve heard of people who have those allergies. This looks like stainless steel–I imagine the studs are also steel. Interior walls also stainless? Insullation would be; wool? Flooring maybe; cork? The idea is to have no paint or plastics–only inert materials. Challenging for a tiny house–but I love the design. Would be nice to have more details.

      Seeing as the woman is allergic to wood, then cork is out of the question. Because cork “is” a wood.

        No, Eric – cork is the bark of a tree, a very specific tree too – not “wood.” It may be, however, that cork could possibly still carry the same trigger chemicals by virtue of the fact that is is part of A tree from which wood, bark, and foliage all come. Just sayin’

    I love mostly all the tiny houses and wish I had a place to put one. Someone brought up a point, the tiny houses are built on a trailer, wouldn’t it be easy to steal one. He said all you really had to do was hook it up and drive away. This really made me start to think, is there so sort of locking system so it can be just towed away?

        Tracy – excellent questions. A young couple in Texas had their brand new tiny stolen almost as soon as they bought it and around the same time more horror stories started popping up. I would worry about the same thing too.

        I wonder — couldn’t the electric trailer brakes be configured to remain locked after disconnecting the trailer from tow vehicle and to remain that way until some specific thing releases them?

    Great idea! Wish I could have seen the inside as well, just wondered if the inside was done in meta as well.
