These are designed to build a truly Tiny House Trailer. Meant to be able to be used to travel some. Yet could be taken off(save your neatly cut Wheel Well cutouts!) or just park as a cabin. For people who would like to travel fairly easy with one, but might stay in a place for a lengthy time. Much nicer to look at, Healthier to live in, Large kitchen for it’s size!. More economical to use in both travel, & parked. Will last a lot longer than most RVs. I hope to build one for Dog Showing.
I have pulled in experience from, 30 yrs of building experience dealing with high wind driven rain building homes on Martha’s Vineyard’s Waterfront, & the famed Nor-easters 65+ MPH winds. As that IS what is going on to the front or leading side of a Tiny HOUSE Trailer at highway speeds. Plus my hauling horses long distances, owning & tearing apart a RV trailer, to know how little there IS TO them!. Then designing & building “outside the box”. Using somewhat common windows, door heights(at least) , Cabinets, & appliances, etc. Things you can pick up on craig’s list.
So the Nomads have no windows to leak on the leading /tongue walls. I have designed all with always looking the thought of Height, Weight, & using EVERY inch of interior space. I have used the aerodynamic V-nose & a “Link” type dormer style for traveling highways speeds. So the plans are not simple to frame, some might want to hire help for the nose at least. Plus you should have on hand a compound Miterbox & spend the time to build a Jig Table.
The Nomad Plans have many interlocking things to think about, that have to be built/framed in a certain order. So I designed the framing for using using 2″x3″s, & using the top rated Polyisocyanurate Rigid Foam Insulation sheets, or the Quick Cure Closed Cell Spray Spray Foam Insulation Kits. As the extra 2″ gained inside means a lot down at this size.
It has a kitchen for real use. A double bowl kitchen sink, to use a drop dish drainer. Using a 20″ apt stove(or find an RV one) . A 7=9 sq ft frig. Could use the Black & Decker under cabinet coffee maker, toaster oven,
The built in Couch is “Day Bed” sized, with dog crates underneath. I most likely would not even use the Loft as a bedroom myself (too old), just some space for storage. & then drop the over all height / roof line. Is designed to use a pull down attic stairs for the railing too, if you wanted to use the loft as a bedroom. A closet is the wall at the Day Bed, & then the frig. I would put a fold down desk set up on the “porch wall” for a laptop at the couch.
