Mighty Micro House: 136 Sq. Ft. Cabin on Wheels

I thought you’d also enjoy this 136 sq. ft. mighty micro house that we’re adding to our tiny houses for sale section. (Sold)

It was built on an 18′ flatbed utility trailer so it’s mobile and it weighs around 6,300 pounds with two 3,500 axles on the trailer.

So total max load for the house is about 7,000 pounds of weight and features a sleeping loft, living area, kitchen, and storage inside.

Interior & Exterior Finishes

Inside you’ll find knotty pine paneling.

Outside it’s covered in cedar shingles for siding.

Is it Legal to Tow?

This particular one is slightly over the legal dimensions for towing without a permit.

With roof overhangs it’s 8’9″ wide which is 3″ too wide for legitimate road travel in most areas.

Height is also a little off at 13’8″ when it should be 13’6″ so be very careful under bridges and such if you decide to tow this one across the country.

Trailer Info

The way it sits right now on the current trailer it’s designed to be towed at travel speeds of just 30 to 35 mph.

The trailer it’s built on doesn’t have brakes (I think they all should because we’re dealing with lots of weight here).


The other thing you may not like about it is that there’s no built-in bathroom.

So if you wanted to live in it full time you would want to build a separate outhouse with shower and toilet.

    What are the ramifications of having a TH that is too wide, say 9′?

    • Avatar Saint Phlip March 3, 2014, 3:29 pm

      Basically, you need to get a professional to tow it for you, with an over-sized vehicle permit. That can get pretty expensive.

      I think it looks nice enough, but it strikes me as perhaps not the best thought out structure of its type. Like you, Alex, I’d rather build my own. This one would be at its best as a guest house or possibly garçonnière in someone’s back yard.

    Nice house but way too expensive. If you go to the link where it’s for say, it says $34,000, tax not included. Oh boy! For that price I can buy a tiny house and park it up north of me on a piece of land near a national forest.

    Don’t quote me on this, and you would need to talk to someone from the transportation department, but I don’t think overhangs count as part of the trailer width because vehicles can easily go under them. At least, I remember reading that about mobile homes, so it should be true for tiny houses, too. Brakes can be added to the trailer, and so can a tiny bath of sorts, but since these things take much money, shouldn’t the price reflect that? In other words, I would price it between 18,000 and 20,000 at most, especially since it is not built on a proper trailer. Otherwise, I have always thought this was one of the prettier tiny houses out there. It seems very well made.

    I think the place where the desk is is probably where the toilet went and the closet was probably where the shower went but they wanted more storage.

    The listing sheet says it’s for sale for $15,900, which I think is reasonable. I left a message with the agent, and he never called me. Doesn’t say where it is currently. Wonder how serious they are.

    • Avatar Alex September 18, 2014, 4:38 pm

      Hi Karen, this was listed quite a while back, so I’m assuming it’s already been sold (since it’s a pretty darn good deal) and that the listing sheet and original website hasn’t been updated.

    Very pretty. Love the use of color and the stained glass windows.

  • Avatar morbious December 14, 2014, 9:19 am

    Too wide to tow yourself, no brakes on the trailer (!!!) and no bathroom. You can do so much better for this kind of money. If you’re going to live out in the woods then put it on a pad rather then a trailer.
    What sense does it make to have a house built so that it can be moved if it can’t be simply and easily moved?

    Here’s a reference for Utah DOT’s allowance for eaves <=12 total inches on manufactured homes (found on line March 1st, 2016 at https://www.udot.utah.gov/main/f?p=100:pg:0::::V,T:,4215)

    Utah DOT, Chapter 29 (Mobile and Manufactured Homes); Legal Dimensions; Measuring Mobile/Manufactured Homes.

    "When the legal dimensions are exceeded, an oversize permit is required. Any mobile/manufactured home with any eave in excess of 12 inches and included in the overall width measurement."

    This means a 6" overhang on either side of an 8'6"-wide (wall-to-wall)THOW (or a 0" eave on one side and a 12" eave on the other) doesn't need a special hauling permit in Utah. There may be more states with this kind of an exemption.

    Vermont also appears to allow 6″ eave overhangs for modular and mobile homes, according to the Special Size Restrictions section in Vermont’s 2011 guide found March 5, 2016 at https://www.google.com/url?q=http://dmv.vermont.gov/sites/dmv/files/pdf/DMV-VX012-Oversize_Permit_Rules.pdf&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwiGtND4kKrLAhVJuYMKHWu_BAA4ChAWCA8wAg&sig2=LY6TiDUu0AZ0FoDmPTfaVA&usg=AFQjCNEkuld1OOki0c8hB7QWq3hzH7vtAA.

    Colorado appears to allow a maximum, total overhang of 2′ eaves on manufactured housing, according to paragraph 7-12(B) of CCR 601-4, accessed March 5, 2016 at https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.sos.state.co.us/CCR/GenerateRulePdf.do%3FruleVersionId%3D1762&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwiGtND4kKrLAhVJuYMKHWu_BAA4ChAWCB8wCQ&sig2=BZ1jFCkCeWbYnWlOb6ts7g&usg=AFQjCNET6x8iaEbFJYhF3q2BCprhNfl_zg
