This is a park model RV designed and built like a train caboose which of course can be used as a ‘large’ tiny house on wheels.
Normally park models are about 400 sq. ft. with extra loft space up top in addition. The designer of this one is a retired train engineer and veteran. Unfortunately this particular model doesn’t have a kitchen or bathroom as it’s being used for the owner’s train and caboose collectibles. Either way I thought you’d like to look at it too since I’m sure you can also see how easy it would be to finish it as a fully functioning tiny home.

Beautiful! And, I understand why the kitchen/bathroom was eliminated since it’s being used as a display area.
I LOVE that they included the stamped tin ceiling! Selfishly, I wish that this person had “tricked out” the caboose to look like the interior of the railcar that James West and Artemus Gordon traveled in, on “The Wild Wild West!”
Now, THAT I would have given the designer a Standing Ovation for creating!!!!
Man, I was so smitten with Artemus Gordon. Artemus Gordon, Dr. McCoy, Manolito Montoya, and John Steed. Dang, only Manolito is still around.
I agree with Cahow….this caboose is seriously begging for some Victorian-era decor! Possibly even steampunk (ok, that’s my not-so-inner nerd talking). ^_^
Beautiful design and finishes. It would be easy to add the needed kitchen and bath if one were to copy this look.
Thanks you for sharing! This was our most fun and unique project to date. It resides here in Wisconsin. We also build traditional park models and cabins.
A lot of care and detail went into this, both inside and outside. Add a kitchen and bath, and this would make fine cozy living. I really like the different types of wood paneling along with the stamped ceiling. Very, very nice.
Hi Denise! I am so glad you liked our project! We really enjoyed building it for this customer.
Is this caboose insulated well and wired for living in or plumed so one can make a bathroom in it or is it just a shell? Thank you for sharing it is beautiful!
Hi Glema, This Caboose was insulated with R-21 in the ceiling and floor and R-15 in the walls. The owner uses it in the harsh Wisconsin winter and uses a gas stove to heat it. We only build custom models and this particular customer did not want a kitchen or bathroom. It CAN be built with those amenities. I am so glad you liked our project!!
What an intriguing project. Having newly found the “Tiny House” movement the Caboose takes it up a notch! One question, what sort of dimensions were used for construction? Thanks.
Hi Dale, Katy from North Park here what specific dimensions were you looking for? Here is a link to the page on our website for this model with a picture of what started the floor plan. http://www.northparkhomesandcabins.com/Models.cfm?SID=348
So cute! Would like to see more pics of the rest of this tiny caboose house.
Hi Juanita, here is a link to this model on our website! http://www.northparkhomesandcabins.com/Models.cfm?SID=348
Hi – Have these been replicated much? Someone I know posted the exact same pic as the interior and said this was their his”legit new crib” out in Quartzite, AZ.
I suspect compulsive lying and have since backed off getting to know him, but just wondered about this. Posting the exact same picture down the Chippewa art and light reflections should probably be my answer, though.
Cool tiny home space!
