Elaine Cabin Tiny Home on Wheels by Rich Daniels

I had to show you this portable tiny home on wheels called the Elaine Cabin built by Rich Daniels of Rich’s Portable Cabins.

In the past I’ve shown you one of his park model tiny houses and another ‘extra long’ tiny house built by him as well. They’re both really cool and he’s built quite a lot of little portable homes.

The home is about 8′ wide and 22′ long so approximately 176 sq. ft. of space without including any upstairs sleeping loft space that might be used although I don’t see that here.

    I really like this one – everything about it. There is “Hiddenbed” that one can build for a space like this. The hardware for it is from Rockler. This would be an alternative to a Murphy Bed – may or may not be practical for a tiny home, depending on the home. It might work for this one.

    Reminds me a lot of the Surf Shack…

    I would take out the sliding glass door in kitchen. Make the kitchen L shape and not have the frig up in the air. I would have it down under the counter. If you look at the picture it shows a counter in front of the door, I would put corner cabinet,then next the frig under the counter.I would put in a daybed so by day a couch and at night a bed. Also I would not have the big black stove in living area. Love the tub.

      Why not have the fridge elevated??? not bending over and down to see whats in the fridge, and easier to clean it too.

    Also I would put the stove and microwave where the sink is and the sink where the stove and microwave were. So that corner cabinet would go next to sink and then the frig. So you would have more counter space. Just my thoughts.

    OH! I forgot to ask how much this one costs.

  • Avatar Elaine Barfield July 26, 2014, 10:05 am

    I should totally build this one. I like the name! 😉

  • Avatar Sheri July 26, 2014, 11:27 am

    ooooh!! Please tell me where you got your tub from?!

    • Avatar Ann September 3, 2017, 7:54 am

      Could you please let me know where to purchase this tub as well, thanks.

  • Avatar hunter July 26, 2014, 4:52 pm

    I thought the counter folded down when not in use.looks like it has a hinge at counter top. or is it just me?

  • Avatar Heather July 26, 2014, 9:45 pm

    Could someone tell me how much this is and is there a loft for the bed?

  • Avatar Paul July 27, 2014, 5:04 am

    Sorry, this one made me want to upchuck. Not sure why… can’t point a finger at any one thing… just the sum of its whole I suppose. Definitely not me, and obviously I’m going against the grain with just about all previous posts going Luv It! Difrnt Strokes fr Difrnt Folks : )

    I agree that the two floor-to-ceiling windows are a little too much, but I like the little fold-down counter in the kitchen. Multiple uses, from food prep to dining table to laptop stand.

    Also love the tub. Wonder where it comes from – I’ve been looking for a tub I can submerge in that will fit into my small old bathroom. :O

    But I gotta admit, the more tiny/small homes I see, the more I don’t like the idea of having to set up the bed every time I need it. What about when you don’t feel well and want to lay down, but aren’t up to hauling out the bed? The older I get the more things like that are becoming a consideration.

  • Avatar Kate August 21, 2014, 11:10 am

    Yes, I love that little tub too. Where was it found?
    I was just curious why…the open areas around the tub. Wouldn’t water get down in there in the corners and cause rot to get started?

  • Avatar SGROSS September 6, 2014, 8:14 pm

    Could someone please tell me where I can purchase one of these tiny bathtubs? I really liked the shower door too.

  • Avatar CathyAnn September 27, 2014, 7:11 pm

    I really like this one. Like everyone else, there are little things I would change to make it suit my preferences. We’re all different.

    In order to shower in that tub and not have water go all over the place, I would install a round or oval shower curtain rod so the curtain encloses the space while showering. I also would prefer a large window instead of sliding ones next to the kitchen counter and rearrange the appliances too. In the area where I would change the sliding glass doors, I would install more cupboards and counter.

    I’ve lived in small spaces, so a convertible sofa/bed of some sort doesn’t bother me at all.

    This space has a good feel to it – spacious and airy. I could live in there.

  • Avatar Glen September 28, 2014, 5:33 am

    What a silly shower this place has. Water will end up everywhere rotting the timber in no time.

  • Avatar Monique Swyer September 29, 2014, 7:42 am

    Love the big windows!! Only way to live tiny and not feel so enclosed!! I know there are many other tiny house enthusiasts who agree as this was a topic of discussion at a tiny house building weekend I attended. Great design!!

  • Avatar Martha December 21, 2014, 5:47 pm

    I might like it if the pictures were a little better. Also, there are photos I can’t place in the context of the floor plan, and I wish the floor plan had a bit more detail.

  • Avatar katie December 22, 2014, 1:45 pm

    Am I the only one to be disturbed by the large window next to the tub? Great if you’re in the middle of nowhere, otherwise, not so much! Lack of bed is also questionable. Love all of the kitchen, even the folding counter, but awkward if you are cooking and there’s traffic through the sliding door. Some really neat ideas, that I’ll file away for design elements. Thanks for sharing!

    The stove info?
