so we want the tiny house to have a more modern aesthetic – most of them out there are sort of Victorian / dollhouse / 1800′s mountain cabin. and most of that is dictated by the need for a loft bed – makes the roof need a steep pitch.
with the gooseneck trailer we found that the bed doesn’t have to be stacked over the living space, keeping the profile lower. (not so scary to tow) it does make it a lot longer though….
here’s the model now. exterior cladding has us stumped a bit. needs to be….. almost free in order to keep our budget low. this is some sort of wood T&G or just plywood roughsawn with siding-esque grooves, stained a dark gray.
some of our inspiration photos:
I wish we could do a flat roof – looks more “modern”. but the gable really creates the needed head height inside, and flat roofed options we looked at ended up looking like a mobile home – a “single wide”. which is not what we’re going for! when you put a house on a trailer much of the design process is focusing on how to make it NOT look like a house on a trailer! ha.
