What’s unique about this THOW is that it’s just over 12 ft. wide, meaning you’d need a permit to transport it, but that you get a lot of width missing from “standard” size tiny homes. It was built for a retired senior who is moving her new home onto her daughter’s property, so having everything on one level was top priority. The extra width allows for an en-suite ground floor bedroom and bathroom and spacious living/dining “great room.” All the cabinetry and woodwork was custom-made for the house, which really ups the “character” factor. Get more details below and be sure to take the video tour with Exploring Alternatives at the end. Enjoy!
If you have aging family members, then you probably know the difficulties associated with care-taking options such as nursing homes and assisted living communities. Sometimes, you want to be the person who takes care of your aging parent. You want to be as near them as possible, yet you also would like them to maintain a sense of independence while they are living with you. Enter the Drop HomeTM, a 240-square-foot mobile home designed specifically for families who want to keep close tabs on their aging family members.
The 24-year-old entrepreneurs who designed this house, Jesse Lammi and Jon Louiselle, live in Minnesota and say that they have designed this with their grandparents in mind. Lammi in particular said that his motivation for starting the organization NextDoor HousingTM, which builds the home, was his ailing grandfather. Lammi’s family wanted a transitional, mobile housing option but could not find what they were looking for. They eventually had to put Lammi’s grandfather in a nursing home.
