Curved Roof Tiny Home

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.

    In photo #4, is that a closed toilet seat I see in the middle of the floor?

    • Eric June 10, 2016, 11:47 pm

      Why yes it is… the bottom part of the toilet bowl isn’t showing in the picture is all.

        First squatting toilet I’ve seen in a Tiny. Is it a flushing or composting type toilet? Looks like it’s behind the right wheel well, so either way might be a challenge.

    Judging by the placement of the window in the bathroom in the photo of the toilet and in the photo above it, it is a regular height toilet.

      I don’t think so, look where the toilet paper holder is located.

  • Maribell Buchanan June 16, 2016, 6:50 pm

    This is a composting toliet so the toilet paper holder is up high so that you can open the lid. The toliet is at normal height.
