Roly Poly 80 Sq. Ft. Tiny House Vacation in Portland, Oregon

This 80 sq. ft. Roly Poly tiny house on wheels is one of six tiny homes at Caravan – The Tiny House Hotel in Portland, Oregon.

It has an upstairs sleeping loft that adds some more square footage and surprisingly enough it can sleep up to 3 people since there’s one queen bed and one twin bed.

The tiny home’s dimensions are 12′ (length) x 6.66′ (width) x 12.5′ (height).

Staying in a tiny house (like this one) before you make any major life decisions or changes is always a good way to try out tiny living before making a major commitment.

    Adorable, adorable! Hard to imagine living in something this small full time, but it sure would be fun for a weekend.

    Love everything about it except … the ladder. How about we add an electric dumb waiter? Or a chair lift?

      Yeah, I was thinking the ladder is a bummer too. But I have an idea…
      Do you see the photo where the ladder is against the back wall? Well, I’m thinking that if you put the loft a bit forward and leave a space at the back of the cabin, you could leave the ladder at the back just as it shows in that photo. This way you’d have space at the back for your body to go through as you climb up that ladder. Instead of entering the loft from the front, enter it from the back. Keeps you from having to move the ladder as well. And I’m thinking if you had a bookshelf behind the ladder, that would give more shelving space as well. But I’m not sure the place is big enough for shelving there.

      Fold down bed, and forget the loft.

        Better yet, forget the loft and put the bed on a hydraulic lift that goes up and down as needed. No ladder, no folding of bed. Push button and voila!

          Actually, a bed that lowers, would be my first choice, but I feel most here would not accept that, so opted for a fold down. I would go with cables and a hand crank winch tho, less expensive, less weight, less expensive to repair if it fails; cable system easy, and not costly, to fab on your own, and much simpler, inexpensive to repair if need be, and parts easy to quickly find. I have hated lofts since I was a kid, and doubt if many here who seem to find lofts so ‘charming’ have actually used one. The only exception I really have for a loft is as storage space, don’t want the grand kids sleeping in one even, better to have them with sleeping bags and air mattresses, on the floor.

    I totally missed the 2nd bed. I liked it as I have been planning something of a similar size. Thank you for sharing

      I can’t find the second bed either unless there are two lofts and matching quilt/ bedspreads…

    I’m always interested in what type of motor one would need to haul these various types of tiny houses, never seem to have that data. I’m looking for a plan that a 6 cylinder could haul, probably would be an aluminum frame and metal siding. I saw a couple of these wrap metal designs on Facebook, I really like, Has to be simple for me to put together, and no longer then 10ft

    I absolutely love this. Beautiful and functional. Most importantly it is enfolding. The wood is warm and inviting. Love the layout and workmanship. Good job. Well Done.

    The comments about the loft ladder are spot on!

    But because of the short length of the unit or trailer, I don’t see room for a fold down bed.

    One design trick that the builder might want to consider on the next try would be to pull the loft towards the “porch /entry door deck”. From the photos of the entry area, it looks like there is enough headroom over the deck to allow the loft to extend over the entire “porch” area without loosing any porch deck space.

    Good move on swinging the entry door out rather than having the door swing in.

    The spacing of the roof framing strikes me as odd, especially when one considers the placement of the robbed metal roofing relative to the location of the roof framing members. The metal roofing ribs do not seem to align with the roof framing members.

    One product that I have not yet seen discussed or used in tiny house designs is a wood sheet product referred to as 2-4-1 Plywood. 2-4-1 Plywood is a very versatile product that would seem to be very helpful in the design and fabrication of small or tiny houses.

    How do you access the second loft? I can tell by the windows that there actually are two beds, but I can’t see the way to get into the second.

    Aahh…! The Vardo, a true sub-passion in my life…! I can never pass up looking at a vardo, my favorite being the Roulottes from Roulottes USA…! They used to have a website at www dot roulottesusa.com But I belive the web site was shut down some time ago, to bad as I would have loved to see more of their work… I have one of their brochures in my desk ,and cherish the fact that I still have it after all this time… I was in hopes to buy one some day, at any price at that time in my life, As things were good for me then…! How things change when you are with out…!
