    Pretty. . .what do they mean “hookups for a frig and sink” ? Is the sink not plumbed already? Where would a refrigerator go?

    None of the 3 windows or glass door appear to have operable windows!? Am I missing something here? Gotta have Air! No fan no AC no Heat no hot water ? No closets cabinets or shelves? What is the purpose of stepping up to move into the multi-purpose room? Pretty house, I just don’t see provision in the design to add these necessary items….

    I agree with Sherry. No ac or heat. Windows can’t be opened? Fire hazard.

    I totally get the step up IF there are possibly water tanks below or some other equipment. This unit would be great as an office but I agree with other comments, the windows do not appear to open, that would definitely be a huge downside and possibly a tragic mistake (fire code). By fridge hookups, does that mean just power or is there a water outlet for an ice maker? What about some sort of closet?

    In an 8’ x 4’ bathroom (I’m assuming this is the measurement) you could have had a much longer vanity if you would just swap places with the toilet. The vanity could run the same direction as the tub creating LOTS of storage space, a lot more then the 24” x 5” IKEA sink cabinet. Nice outdoor shower but this negates any sort of storage on the tongue of the trailer.

    Price point is low, and it is pretty. I wonder what the weight capacity of that trailer is because you’d need to add so much to finish this unit.

    The tires look very small I wonder if those are 7000 lb axles.

    This might make a great back yard office but would still need operational windows and a closet/wardrobe type cabinet to store your typical office supplies.

      7000 lb axles would be the standard ones for most THOWs. So smaller would suggest 6000 lb axles… Hard to tell without any dimensions to go by in the listing but dual axle still means 12-14K lbs capacity…

      There is also the question of how strong the trailer it is built on is because it doesn’t appear to be as wide as the structure, meaning the side walls may not be directly supported as they should be, mind that the trailer functions like the foundation for a THOW, and it may be a regular trailer adopted for a THOW but wasn’t engineered to handle the weight load of a THOW as well and that puts into question how much more weight it can handle even if the axles are good enough…

      Regular trailers tend to put most of the load bearing capacity towards the middle but THOWs put it towards the perimeter… Can still cantilever up to 2 feet without needing special engineering but regular trailers also tend to have less max load capacity as THOWs are heavier than most regular loads…

      This doesn’t appear to be a heavy design, though, so should be fine but depends on how much weight you’ll add finishing it more…

        James, I agree with you, the weight of this unit is totally around the perimeter. My fear is that the wheels look tiny compared to RV-5th wheel type trailers and due to the wood construction, I’m sure this trailer is about at its max capacity, therefore, adding a fridge and other items may take it well over the edge, whoever buys this will need to know what the current weight is and know the weight capacity of the axels.

        Though the Scandinavian style isn’t really what I like, especially with such a small overhang, where all the siding would be wet every time it rains, it is a great representation of that style and the workmanship appears to be spot on. It is lovely overall.

    Nordic feel? Where exactly? It does not become a nordic feel just because you paint the walls white. You will not find a dark ceiling in a nordic house – and not a dark blue kitchen. I am wondering why Americans try to cash in on something they do not know anything about.

      Look at the Escape’s Mid-Century Modern N1 Tiny Home – in another article. That has a Nordic vibe to it.

        No, there are dark ceilings in Nordic houses.

        Actual design elements include:

        -Minimalist aesthetic
        -Understated design that follows function
        -Light, neutral colors
        -Muted, dark hues that remind of Nordic landscapes
        -Airy spaces filled with light
        -Wood furniture and wood accents
        -Decorative, statement pendant lights
        -Multifunctional and flexible designs
        -Plush sofas and tactile fabrics
        -Hanging plants and lush greenery
        -Natural textiles
        -Steel, brass, or copper accents
        -Artworks as focal points in a minimalist space

        But interiors can vary and may include different influences like industrial or boho. So include features of white, off-white, and gray hues along with muted blue and green colors. But darker accents can also be used to create bold color contrasts, with other hues including beige and cream hues as well as muted brown colors, as these interiors generally feature an abundance of wood flooring and wood furniture.

        So while walls are usually light colored, there can be dark cabinets and even a dark wood ceiling…

        Besides, designs like this appear in multiple countries, it’s just popular…

          It is not normal with dark ceilings in Nordic houses. That would make the houses way too dark in winter, when we have little sun. I think I should know, since I live in Scandinavia and are born here. You might have light wood. And we do not go for stained wood. In summerhouses, you might have pine wood in the ceiling. But most people paint it in a light colour. This is Scandinavian design: https://www.mainlifestyle.dk/tendenser/faa-sommerhus-stemning-aaret-rundt

        Sorry but normal doesn’t mean you can just exclude other interpretation of the design theme David. This is why most designs have different variants like traditional, modern, etc. as again, while most are predominantly light colored, use of dark colors and tones for contrast still does exist in Nordic design, especially when expanded to include other design elements as mentioned with industrial or boho elements being integrated as well at times, modern style homes especially can include such contrasting elements. Along with now including woods like Walnut, which are darker than traditional Scandinavian woods but still remain true to being natural colors.

        So Nordic Design isn’t as limited or absolute as you seem to think. Other colors and darker tones are just predominantly used for contrast in furniture or accent pieces but as already pointed out that can include other parts like the ceiling as well. Still, the whole space is still predominantly light and bright, with the contrast actually making the walls stand out more and would be what is predominantly in your field of vision most of the time. Contrary to your contention that it would make the space seem too dark…

        Besides, there’s even a trend now for integrating black and white with Scandinavian themes, just to point out how wide a range is really out there, especially when combining different design themes together…
