The Story on this Tiny Home
Matt Larson of Change House Design contacted me regarding this cabin he built that he put up for sale on eBay. He is hoping to find a good owner for it through the auction and I’m hoping I can help him do that with this blog post.
It’s a micro cabin built onto a 6×10 trailer inspired by contemporary mountain homes found in the Rocky Mountains.
Off Grid But You Can Plug In Too
The home is designed to be off the grid if you want it to but it can also be plugged right into the grid in your backyard or at a campsite (or to a generator).
The outside is finished with corrugated steel wainscot and salvaged siding. The roofing is corrugated steel with ridge and gable flashing.
The siding came from a mountain home in Dillon, Colorado in the 1920s.
Windows & Door
Windows are brand new Jeld Wen awning style with vinyl construction. The door is custom made with pine and all weather seal.
The cabin is fully insulated with R13 insulation in all exterior walls and in between the rafters in the roof.
The trailer is 6×10 with a 5000 pound capacity axle. It has full sized wheels and tires and functions as the foundation for the home.
110V plug is installed for power so you can plug right in with most extension cords and power right up. If you’re off the gird you can use a generator. Inside there are two interior lights and one exterior light (with switches).
Interior (Living Room)
Couch with built in storage that’s about 5’8″ long (can be used for sleeping) across from full height locker for storage. Next to it is a 2″ thick pine desk with power outlet nearby for your laptop.
In the rear left of the home is the wet bath and an RV flush toilet (bathroom). It’s covered in corrugated steel to help make it waterproof and it has a beautiful tile mosaic floor.
In the kitchen there’s a mini refrigerator, microwave, stainless steel sink, gravity water tank and cabinets to store anything else you might want for cooking.
The sleeping loft with window is accessible by ladder and can sleep two comfortably.
The tiny house is easily heated with an Olympian Wave 3 propane safety heater.
