You can also find Chris (aka the Capable Carpenter) over at The Capable Carpenter. Anyway, he bought this trailer for only $1,000 and spent approximately $10 on materials to turn it into a micro cabin on wheels. Pretty amazing, right? By the way, he’s in the process of building a little village of tiny homes.
Are rooftop tiny houses becoming a trend in big cities? That might be a far stretch, but it’s an idea that’s slowly been catching on because if you’re in a city, there’s just no place for a tiny house on wheels, so rooftops could be an option for some. And it’s not the first time something kind of like this has been done.
That’s what el Sindicato Arquitectura did with its Casa Parasito project located in Ecuador’s capital Quito. What do you think of the idea of tiny homes being built on the rooftops of buildings? Is it a good idea or a bad idea? Why? Would you ever consider this if it were an affordable housing option?
Our new Acorn cabin is inspired from traditional canvas tents & A frame cabins. The idea is simply a small retreat to escape to from the city. Its made small only have a warm place to sleep & eat and to spend as much time outside as possible. This version is 8ft x 10ft, features pine T&G finished, and Cubic Mini stove.
What a cool little cabin that’s “something different.”
From the outside, you’ll notice this little shelter has a funky oblong shape with horizontal board and batten siding and a shingled roof that drapes down the sides of the camper. There are wonderful wrought iron wheels under the body which make it look like something from Cinderella, doesn’t it?
When you go inside, you’ll find a crisp, clean home with beautiful pine boards on the ceiling and floor. The dinette on one side turns into a queen-size bed and across the way is a built-in bunk bed. It includes thermal paned windows, three of which open and one that is a fixed octagon window as well as a solid oak dutch door.
