Tiny Log Cabin on a Trailer

This post contains affiliate links.

This tiny log cabin on a trailer is 8′ x 16′.

It’s in Plattsburgh, NY and if you have been wanting to stay in a tiny house for a few nights–you can take your next vacation in this one!

If your spouse or significant other is hesitant this can be a way for you to give it a real shot.

The owner, Les, built the home himself back in 2009 and he uses it as a rental on his property on Lake Champlain.

There’s a private beach where visitors can kayak, canoe, rowboat or paddle boat.

He built this in a unique way compared to most other tiny houses on trailers out there because he left the sides on the utility trailer intact.

Les designed it this way because he believes it’s stronger this way structurally. I think that’s a good point and I like the way he did it–notice below.

I love how there’s plenty of natural light that comes in from every part of the house.

Below is a shot of the cozy sleeping loft. I believe Les did a great job building this one.

If you’re wondering, the siding is called light pine log cabin siding.

    This is a wonderful tiny home. I am wondering if the 8 x 16 size is the interior and if so what is the porch size?

    This is a really nice spacious and functional layout. Is there any chance of posting the bathroom shots?

    I am really impressed. Love it.

    Great question Tonita, I’ll find out for you. The pictures too, I’ll ask if there’s any. Thanks for commenting!

  • September 21, 2011, 6:45 pm

    Okay the deck is 3′ x 8′ and the cabin is 8′ x 16′. He doesn’t have pictures of the bathroom available because it’s so small.

    I love your blog.

    Thanks for that information and follow up.

    I am in the process of having a 8 x 24′ tiny home built for me. The inside is 8 x 18′ with a large front porch that is 6 x 8′. Knowing the measurments of other tiny homes allows me to have an idea of what mine can look like.

    Thanks much,

    Thanks, Tonita. I still haven’t got pictures of the bathroom, but we’ll see.

    So cool that you’re building one! Where are you geographically? Best of luck with the construction.

    How far along are you? Are you using any plans or making your own? Talk to you later!

    I live in the country about an hour from Seattle, WA. My tiny home is being built in Arkansas. Once it is finished it will be towed to WA State.

    I am not building the tiny home myself. I wanted it finished in this century, lol. I have been keeping an eye on the tiny house movement for almost 25 years now. I fondly remember the first time I saw a tiny straw bale home at the CA state fair a VERY long time ago. I have always gravitated towards tiny enchanted spaces. I never had the urge to build my own tiny home, nor was I actually shopping for a tiny home. But a girl knows a good deal when she finds it, and it is hard to resist a great ‘sale’. I read about a builder in Arkansas that has a lot of experience building tiny homes, and he has what I think is, beyond reasonable pricing, as well as building a quality tiny home. He is willing to customize a tiny home the way anyone wants it built. He was running a “limited time” special offer on one of his models on the Tiny house blog last Nov. Being a smart shopper I recognized a good deal and wonderful sale price that motivated me to order one from him. Of course, I first spoke to others who had purchased their tiny homes from Scott, and they all were very happy with his craftsmanship and ‘easy to work with’ attitude.

    The year kind of slipped away, way to fast – and he recently started building the tiny home just days ago.

    I started a blog about tiny spaces and my story and current construction pictures are at – dub dub dub ShabbyChicTinyRetreat(dot)blogspot(dot)com . I posted pictures just last night of the progress.

    You asked about the plans. Scott has his own designs for his tiny homes, including the ‘Anne Marie’ design that he is building for me. I had my own preferences that he is incorporating into the design. It will look a bit like the Tumbleweed Lusby on the inside, but much more spacious with a large front porch and 2 large lofts instead of one usable loft. The kitchen will run along one side of the home, for a more ‘open’ feel. It will have 2 full 8’x 8′ size sleeping lofts. There will be a dividing wall under the back loft. One side will be a bathroom with sink, bath-tub and toilet and the other side will be a cubby area that I might use for a lower bed area.

    I will continue to post pictures as Scott sends them.

    Thanks for asking about my shabby chic tiny retreat.

      Tonita, I must me missing something here, I looked at your blog and it looked pretty complete to me. LOL your style is different for sure to most in the scale down into tiny house and if I tried to decorate like you did or put that much into a small space it would look trashy. Good for you not even tying and staying yourself by just doing it. Please come back to us every holiday, Christmas has to be great! I for one could hardly wait to see what you do next. You did a good job expressing yourself, I enjoyed my tour and you did a good blog.

        Hi Ralph,
        My above post was from Oct of 2011. My tiny house is now finished and she now sits on my property in WA. I like to change out the interior decor with fabrics, accessories and furniture to match my mood. I get so bored with the same thing day after day. I definitely am not part of the minimalist movement.

          Hi Tonita, thanks for responding. I thought I must have been missing something. LOL and to think, I was the guy harping on people to check the damn dates on documentation they sent me when receiving reports. I must have taken a side step from the log house. I tried the link Alex gave for the Fall thing with the chickens but it appears you took it down. Have fun with your house, no matter what you use it for. I for one have nothing against materialistic people, I was one and still have too many things that are hard to part with but I do want to. You are using you possessions, I don’t. What impressed me with your photos, the plates seemed scale for the table in the photos. I purchased a sailboat year ago and in their brochure, the places fit the table and they had 4 on it. After my purchase, I put two normal plates on the table and laughed because mine took the whole table up. Had no complaints with the boat thou.

    Tonita thank you so much for sharing. I’ve seen Scott’s work before through Kent’s blog. He does a great job.

    I’m checking out your blog now. Here’s the link so everyone else can just click if they want to. http://shabbychictinyretreat.blogspot.com

    Wow, the chicken coop came out awesome and your house is coming together really nicely too.

    The large front porch is a great idea. And I like your idea on two large, usable lofts. I’ve been in a tiny house with the kitchen running down one side. It does help it feel open.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of your project and new life unfold. Thanks again for sharing it with us.

    When I get updated pictures of my tiny home I will post them to my blog and let you know also. Scott is a pretty low tech guy so I am not getting as many pictures of the construction as I had hoped for. He is waiting for the electrician to do an inspection now, in order to continue building it. We spoke the other day and he said it should be finished in 2 weeks or close to that. I can’t wait to get it here to WA State.

    Thanks for the compliments on my little chicken coop. I just love that space. I sit inside the coop each day and just watch my chicks and chickens interact. It is such a fun and comfortable spot for the chickens and also for me. Take a look at it now – It is all dressed up for Fall and the chicken coop Halloween pics are soon to follow.

    Keep up the wonderful work on you blog. Great job Alex.

    So glad you shared those pictures. If anyone else wants to take a look at Tonita’s chicken coop all dressed up for Fall here is the link:


    Can’t wait to see your house pics when it’s all done. Talk to you soon Tonita!

    Nice interior work. Log cabin siding is pretty expensive but for a small home it would be a nice feature to make it stand out.

    If the couch converts to a bed you have room to sleep 4. Not much storage in that kitchen but you could take out the octagon window and do open storage shelves on that wall.

    I have been following these blogs, websites, whatever for years and it is amazing that one little thing is brought up and so many people enquire about it or remark. I almost shutter when I think of anyone who is a novas even thinking about modifying a trailers structure but many things I have done flashed before my eyes, things I have done out of ignorance could have killed me or others. I am not knocking anyone’s intelligence here so please do not take offence. If you purchase a used trailer, TH builds by Novas, or anyone who has modified a trailer. Have it checked out for structural integrity. I have been involved in the purchase of hundreds of trailers and man life equipment; I personally inspect every inch of it just looking for modifications. Sometimes the previous owner will remark that he or the owner before him just did this little tweak to make it function better. Well, it may have functioned better for their use but after we had it checked out by engineers, the tweaking caused severe harm and the cost to make it right again was excessive. I am not talking one or two incidences here but many. What’s that story, for warned is for armed. If it wasn’t built to remove, example, some side rails, it just might be a part of the original engineering. Just get it checked out and by people who know what they are talking about. Joe the welder on the corner is not the one to do that. He may with a set of engineered plans be the guy to fix it but there are many places that will do the inspection who know what they are looking for. Play Safe…

    I really like the idea of retaining the siding for additional structural stability. This would come into play when moving or for high wind storms. Good thinking!
