I really like many of these but wish they were not on a gooseneck
Goosenecks make for safer and easier driving. Reversing orders of magnitude easier with a gooseneck. Much more stable than if it was on a standard towbar. Downside is of course you need a vehicle which can take a gooseneck fitting which usually means a truck or large size ute.
I know what you mean Eric but I am having an F-650 with a 15 foot box on the truck pulling my tiny home. enough power but no connection. I know I could get a small two wheel dolly to hold the tiny but I think it may need a Class A truckers license. For me it will not work.
I like the simple lines and style. Unfortunately, the distorted photography does a serious injustice to the story which the seller/production company is attempting to do and it would be so nice if they quite using super wide angle lens to tell those stories. Just saying.
So this brings up the question…..Why, if we can see builders put beds on Garage door openers and move the bed to the ceiling, don’t one of said builders use that Garage door opener for an elevator?
Oh that’s far too sensible is why. Far, far too sensible. Go sit in the corner. LOL
I don’t know about an elevator but I could possibly see where we might be able to use it to raise the roof 2 feet in a loft.
It’s actually been done before by DIY’ers but you won’t see most commercial builders do it for anything beyond the bed lift, a dumb waiter or pet elevator because of a number of factors similar to why you don’t see them in every residential house either…
1) Liability… While you could use almost anything to build an elevator, anything improvised means the builder takes on full liability if anything goes wrong and someone using it gets hurt. Especially, when dealing with components that were not designed for that use.
2) Cost… While something improvised can be cost effective, actual commercial elevator systems that come with insurance/warranty, certified safe, etc. costs thousands of dollars. Typical home elevator system goes over $20,000 to even over $40,000… Even a very basic short lift elevator can go for around $10,000…
3) Space… Elevator systems require a certain amount of space that you can’t use for anything else and in a tiny house that can be a very limiting factor.
4) Maintenance and Repair… Anything mechanical will eventually break down. So not all home owners are necessarily willing to handle the additional long term maintenance and repair work and costs.
Mind, since most Tiny Houses are custom built that nothing goes into them that the owner doesn’t agree to…
While an improvised system means you’ll rely on either yourself or a company that may not be around forever for support. Since a commercial repair service may not help with something that wasn’t built to industry standards.
Versus a more expensive commercial product that will be made from a company you can be pretty sure will be around for a long time and will offer insurance/warranty for their product… Or at least be sure that it is built to industry standards so any one in the business can service it…
5) Reliability… Since mechanical systems will eventually break down. Elevators provide a convenience but when they break down it can leave you stuck. Part of the high cost of commercial solutions, besides making sure you don’t just plummet to the ground, is including systems to make sure you can get out or at least call for help… Since, even with no door, not everyone can necessary just jump down or climb the rest of the way up…
Though, there are other options to using a motor based system… Hydraulics, Pneumatics, and Electric Actuators provide options to build lift based systems that can be more reliable and compact than a motor based system… Generally safer, require less power to run, and you are more likely to see them used by a commercial builder.
A number of builders are working on finding a solution that minimizes issues and can be done affordably but it may be a number of years before they perfect a good solution.
There are just always trade offs to consider with any design and feature you may want to consider…
If you’re really worried about sleeping spaces do what a friend in a tiny house (foundation) did, hung up hammocks for the family. Had lots of floor space for living and hung hammocks and pulled curtains for sleeping. Meant a bedsit for 2 could/did allow a family of 4 to live in it comfortably. More to the point, for loft bedrooms why do they have such restricted headroom when they could surely use a push up roof such as the combine camper vans use. Surely a practical solution, down for travelling or if it’s really windy and up when stationary. Stand up with ease that way.
I’ve said the same thing before about an extending roof. But minds greater than mine have poo poo’d it as being unfeasible and prone to leakage.
Yet in the article https://tinyhousetalk.com/rooftop-terrace-tiny-house/
in France they have a horizontal sliding roof and one can see by the profile that it could be easily adapted as a vertical lifting roof. So concept is in fact sound, just need an easy way to lift all 4 corners of the roof at the same time and the same speed so it doesn’t distort when raising or lowering.
