My brilliant cousin Sage suggested that I give some quick details about my project, mostly the fact that it is 196 s.f. so that her co-workers will believe her. It is 196 s.f. 🙂. My house is built on the bed of a 24′ long (8 foot wide) flatbed trailer. It is built on a trailer not as much to be mobile so much as to use a work around from building/zoning square footage requirements. Not that my house is unsafe by any means, I now have to go through the DMV and pay their fees associated (a lot less) to get the house inspected/licensed/permitted. I am using reclaimed/recycled/leftover materials for the most part. I have designed this all myself and have been constructing it with the help of my dad and my boyfriend, in my spare time. Please feel free to shoot me a comment or a message if you have any questions, I am happy to help whomever however I can! Also, if you see me doing something wrong PLEASE tell me, I have a background in design, not building… this is all pretty much from the hip ;-). Thanks! Onto the design:
Right now I am going to be using recycled pallet wood for the siding (shown in the variegated brown). The darker material is just going to be stained wood. The roof and shorter side wall will be an elastomeric roof of sorts with a trellis of sorts for growies (thinking about using expanded aluminum). The deck is yet to be determined.
