Unique teardrop tiny houses… yeah, that’s the best I could come up with to describe this mini cabin.

It’s meant for camping but it has a comfortable king size bunk bed, plenty of storage, and a beautiful interior. The window is positioned on the ceiling to bring in light and breeze.

They call it the E-den. It’s even got a covered front porch and has an easy BBQ set up (part of the canvas opens up for ventilation).

Everything is fully insulated and the windows are double glazed. This is awesome!

Inside it’s 11′ by 6’9″ and 6’9″ high

Outside 14′ by 8′ and 9′ high

Deck is 14′ by 7′

The designer/builders, Timber Tradesmen, are marketing these to property owners who can rent them out to campers.

After traveling to Mexico in the spring of 2003, my soon to be wife, Kit and I decided to teach a cob workshop in the Baja [www.cobworks.com]. With a family on the way, [twin boys] I decided we needed something more than tent camping. I had always been against motor homes and big trailers but figured if I was to build a trailer; hey it would be cool.

Armed with a budget of $1500, I did some research, and fell in love with style, grace and philosophy of teardrop trailers. Never much one for plans, I began by cutting out a design on cardboard until a shape emerged that was oh so sweet. The first step was assembling a small trailer frame that came in a box and them bolting on a floor. The sides were plywood with tongue and groove spruce to form the curve of the top. This was then covered in aluminum and a recycled skylight installed.

The new “Baja Bullet” featured a door on each side, queen size bed, small shelf/bunk for the boys and an exterior fold up counter/kitchen. The sides were finished to match my 1970’s “woody” station wagon that was to pull it. It weighed 850 pounds and towed like a dream. There is nothing like camping when you have your own mattress, bedding and are not sleeping on the ground. On our road trips south, we would pull into a rest stop, climb in the Bullet and be comfortable,cozy and safe.

Everyone would give us a thumb’s up on the road and crowds would gather for a peek if we were parked. Cruising on the I-5 through L.A. with 10 lanes of traffic, I realized I needed to be over 5 lanes…….now! Kit glanced up at me and began chanting, “cute trailer coming through, cute trailer coming through” as I began my drift through traffic. Not once, in all our road trips, has anybody ever honked at us in anger. After 4 trips to Baja, we decided a bigger Bullet was in order.
