“Little Sunshine” Tiny House Is A Bright And Stylish Example

Florida-based builder Trekker Trailers offers a variety of trailer living solutions, including campers, gypsy wagons, and 24-footer tiny houses. Their latest is also their biggest to date; based on the 24-foot design, this one goes to 30 feet thanks to a deck extension, and is so solidly built that it required a triple-axle trailer to support it. Trekker Trailers built the customized shell in about a month, then handed it over to buyer Emily and her yachtsman boyfriend Clark, who spent another four months making an admirable job of the finish work.

The brightly painted wood-and-metal exterior was Emily’s idea, while Clark lent his nautical experience to developing space-saving interior features such as a fold-out counter. There’s an adequate kitchen with a tiny sink, two-burner induction stove, microwave and separate refrigerator and freezer units; a good sized bathroom with a composting toilet, 54-inch bathtub, and (again separate) washer and dryer; and a downright spacious loft with a 50-inch ceiling and room for a king-size bed.

And there’s also what at first looks to be a lot of wasted space in the stairwell/entryway towards the front of the trailer. In fact, Emily had a good reason to leave it open: she’s an avid piano player and needed all that roominess to get decent acoustics. The piano itself will be installed in the bump-out atop the trailer tongue, and generous insulation throughout the house should help keep the instrument in tune in any weather and across the changing of the seasons.

When it comes to tiny house design, it really does seem that where there’s a will, there’s a way.
