Trailer Delivery

My tiny house trailer has arrived! As I sit at my desk typing this update, I am also gazing out my window at the tiny house trailer in my backyard. It’s really here, parked in my backyard — finally!

Charlie from Tiny House Builders came yesterday to deliver my trailer. He could not get it into the exact position I will need it in order to start the construction due to the size of his truck, but I am confident that with a few friend’s help that we will be able to maneuver it into place. When you have as many trees in your backyard as I do, you may as well expect some challenges getting something as large as a 20′ trailer into place.

Scout (my dog) is supervising the trailer placement process. I mean, just look at that smile. She can not wait to live in the tiny house.

As you can see I will need to straighten up the position of the trailer before I can start the build.

All in all, I am very impressed with the construction of the entire trailer. I am in the process of adjusting my floorplan slightly to accommodate for small discrepancies of the actual trailer dimensions and my initial estimates. The modifications I requested to the flanges, wheel well fins and upgraded axles, all look to be made with care and of the highest quality. I highly recommend considering Tiny Home Builders when shopping for custom Tiny Home Trailers.

    Am mitigating the facts of the rv 5th wheel & this ; in essence it is all relatively the same concepts. Actually am into more space ; why not go 35 ; 48 ; 53 ; 60 ft trailer even. Then we’re at ‘he same concept mobile home. Love it all .

  2. Anthony, you can go as large as you feel comfortable. I’m choosing to go as small as I dare in order to conserve money, weight and just for the pure minimalism. The challenge of living with less really resonates with me. I love that the tiny house movement leaves room for exploration and DIY approaches. I look forward to seeing your build.

    I am so happy for you! Thank you for including lots of pictures…I can’t wait to see it in person in a month. I’ve already got my plane tickets :-)

    • I hope to have some progress to show off by then. Let me know if you want to help out. Lots of work to be done to finish the dry-in phase of construction.

        Of course; I’d love to help. Let’s discuss details in a few days. I’ve almost kicked this flu.

  4. Congrats on the new trailer! How exciting!

    Awesome!!! Can’t wait to see it and help too! I think after a steak and a few beers we can get that trailer in place ;)

    • I’ll supply the steak and beer. I have the trailer counterbalanced where I can lift the tongue with a single finger, but rolling or pivoting the heavy trailer on soft ground is beyond my strength alone.
