we have spent about 3 weeks now dreaming, researching, planning, sketching, and modeling the house we want to live in. it’s a puzzle! trying to fit a two bedroom, two bath, one garage, one tool trailer, two car, one motorcycle, and two bike lifestyle into an 8′ x 20′ space! (we still need to pare down our belongings…stay tuned…)
we finally arrived at a design that we can move forward on:
exterior finishes are “TBD”… when you’re contemplating a house can be towed down the road it raises design issues that don’t exist with regular architectural design! for instance, are all those shingles going to blow off as soon as we hit 50 mph? we’ll see! ideally it will have metal roofing, but we need to price it out.
here’s the current plan:
the trailer we got is a 5th wheel / gooseneck (easier for towing and super heavy duty – ie can carry a house) so the bedroom is above the gooseneck and accessed by stairs.
fun! now for the cost estimating and figuring out what we can actually use for materials…
