Nice but not for me, no wheels. Don’t want a conventional house.
It’s a Park Model, so it’s not a conventional house… They just do a good job making it look like a conventional house but considering what they charge it’s the least they could do…
Hey james how is it hangin’. Your right but for me, no wheels, my house doesn’t have them either so it is a conventional house.
Hey Tom, it’s going okay…
I understand what you’re saying. The ability to be easily moved is a big distinction for non-conventional houses but there is also the clear distinction for a conventional house with the inclusion of a foundation, which this does not have.
Mind, while not visible, Park Models are usually required to keep their wheels… They just usually have a removable tongue hitch and get skirted to give the illusion that it’s a conventional structure.
It’s Mobile Homes/Manufactured Houses that can be without wheels but still have the permanent chassis. Manufactured Houses, especially, can be placed on foundations to truly function as a conventional house.
There’s also the distinction on how they are built as Park Models follow the RV building code, which is why they don’t exceed 400 sq ft, but Manufactured Houses follow the HUD building code, which makes them more like a conventional house and they can be much bigger.
There’s just a size overlap as Manufactured Houses start at 320 Sq Ft on up, and Park Models can still look a lot like a conventional house.
The quad axles of Park Models also helps hide the wheels because it allows for smaller wheels and thus avoids the normal wheel wells from protruding… It just makes them harder to tow regularly, but they’re not meant to be moved regularly anyway.
Though, some Park Models retain a more Travel Trailer design for those who do want to travel a lot… They just achieve the ~400 sq ft with slide outs and look more like travel trailers…
There are also trailers designed to lower the trailer bed when parked… Ice Castle RV’s, for example, can lower the trailer to the ground and makes them good for parking on ice for ice fishing from the warm interior of the trailer.
So it is possible to design a THOW that can convert to a conventional house when parked but convert back into a THOW when you want to move with as much ease as a slide out… There’s just some additional cost and weight limitations to consider for such a design, as well as additional maintenance requirements.
Options don’t have to be mutually exclusive… While you could always simply not bother skirting a Park Model and leave the wheels visible… The photos on this one is just showing it already parked and set up but if you look at the photos of some of their other models, like the Denali, you’ll see the trailer tongue still attached and the wheels visible…
I LIKE THE FACT THAT THESE HOME ARE STARTING TO HAVE DIFFERENT STYLES AND VARIATIONS. PERHAPS MEDITERRANEAN AND TROPICAL STYLE HOMES WITH COLORS WILL BE NEXT. WE JUST HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THINGS.
I really like the exterior design, especially the awning that provides shade. I’m not entirely sure why someone would place this so that they can look over a parking lot as opposed to the woods behind, but to each his own. However, I didn’t care for the interior layout. I prefer a functional kitchen (meaning I’d want a stove).
I like the style of the house inside and out but I think the unnecessarily itty bitty kitchen next to TV/fireplace is awkward. Maybe ok if you were only staying a couple of nights as a BnB but I’d like to see that remedied if I was going to live in it full time. The decks are nice.
Nice place, dumb fridge.
Gully roof is just plain asking for trouble. IIRC they are banned in New Zealand unless designed specifically by an architect who will guarantee against leaks. Get a weatherbomb and that is its weakest point. Shudder!!! 😫
