The Trailer Arrives

tiny home trailerOne fine day recently, a 24’ long custom-designed trailer was hauled down our driveway.  Teal Brown of Wishbone Tiny Homes brought it and expertly guided it onto our prepared gravel pad.

It was impressive to see the degree of accuracy with which he was able to steer the trailer into the exact right spot. 

As you can see in the photos, this heavy-duty trailer has taken everything into consideration for a tiny house to be built on it.  I love the little extras, like the attached jacks. The jacks are built into place at the front, sides and back of the trailer. When its time to jack up the trailer or house, just use a drill with a screwdriver bit to lower the jack. When the work is done and the jacks are no longer needed, reverse the drill and they are up and out of the way again.  The custom trailer also has openings for the sub flooring joists to be built in.  Once the joists are completed and screwed onto the trailer, then the insulation sheets can be put inside that space, and some kind of waterproof sheeting wraps it all into a package. The flooring then rests on top of that, at trailer level. This ingenious design gives us 6” more headspace inside the home.
