For sale is our custom built trailer coach, park model. This home was constructed in 2015, beginning its life as an off grid residence.
It was lived in off grid for 8 years. It had several changes with renovations or redesigns of things, and this is where it’s at today. Well loved. And so we’re ready to part with it, hopefully giving someone else the opportunity to grow personally in it as we have.

CONSTRUCTION & BACKSTORY
Much of the materials came from vendors in the Durango, Colorado area, where Rocky Mountain Tiny Homes established their business and made various builder contacts. We used Neil Heib, of Heibco Trailers, to construct this well built frame: three by 5,000lb capacity axles; a continuous box frame of 6 inch channel; a trailer hitch frame stack of also 6 inch channel, welded back to the first axle; 2-5/16 inch removable hitch; and under sheathed with 24 gauge aluminum. We used Shaw Solar as our installer for the solar equipment, more on that below.

FRAME & CONSTRUCTION
The house frame is 2x4 construction, with the trailer belly 6 inches deep filled with polystyrene board (R60 total). The roof is 2x6, also R60 insulated polystyrene. The walls are 90% denim filled (R15) and some portions rock wool (R15). Used 1/2 inch plywood sheathing on the exterior (screwed), double wrapped with house wrapping and tar paper, with a 3/4 sub-floor and vapor barrier. For strength, the walls are split height (1st floor separate from loft frame); the loft is 50% trailer length (12 feet) on 4x4 cross members, bolted into the wall stack. The ridges on both sides connect all the way to the trailer deck (channel frame) with 3/8 inch braided wire under tension. In addition, hurricane ties are on each rafter and structural banding is around every corner. The walls bolt to the sill plate all the way around.

EXTERIOR
The exterior is Wisconsin eastern white cedar, fastened with stainless knurled 6d nails, treated every other year with boiled linseed oil. The trim is also white cedar and/or poplar, painted. The roof is painted steel surplus striated metal sheets (new); all fastened with grommet bolt head screws. Windows are an assortment of what was available at the time (Jeld-Wen and/or Anderson), which we adapted for our use.

OFF GRID
This house was off grid with a composting toilet and battery/inverter. After moving from Colorado, it was changed over to septic and removed the battery/inverter, converting it to full hook up and then back again when it came to Maine. The auxiliary loft design was for the installment of cisterns, if need be, for a gravity feed. It works for extra storage. Otherwise, you may adapt a standard garden hose hookup connection, or whichever universal connection for your well line.

INTERIOR & BATH
The interior is majority untreated beetle-kill western pine from Colorado and/or Montana. The remainder is painted plywood, some paneling, or galvanized metal roofing. The floor is waterproof vinyl (we have additional pieces to include as well). The bathroom shower is actually a tile stall, with a stainless ceiling. The toilet is a Natures Head composting toilet with fan ventilation outside.

HOT WATER
Hot water is under the counter in the lazy Susan and also serves the shower. We had a Rheem on-demand external propane, however it reached critical failure in the extremes of Colorado winters; after a propane RV HW heater iteration, we settled on the 6-gallon point of use which met our needs satisfactorily.

DRAINAGE
All drainage is external to the trailer and would require some trailer home paneling around the base to prevent freezing (as shown). All service lines are PEX and internal to the house, with most on the face of the interior walls to mitigate potential frost spots.

SOLAR
The La Plata County homes inspector inspected the house mid-way and at finalization before titling it as a trailer-coach, park model. Shaw Solar did much of the electrical install for the solar system; all electrical work afterwards was by us, with most recently Rhiel Solar (Advanced Energy Products) helping with removal and inspecting any current work.
