Some of you simple living folks might find this site about Tiny Houses fun:

A lot of houses on trailer platforms but also others.
Like hppyfngy, I'm a fan of living within ones means. But, also like hppyfngy, I'm an old pontificating fart

a cabin could be built easier and faster than you think if you built all the subassemblies and cut the entire roof assembly at home to maximize your production when actually on site. panelized wall sections sections could also be built if you have the horsepower to handle them.

building these small structures is not any kind of technical challenge. for instance, you don't need to be on site to cut the rafter package, the numbers don't change just because you're 200 miles away.

Yeah, ya think the white DRZ in the back is going to make people think I'm odd?

I really like these. Down here shipping containers are cheap. It would also be a little more secure leaving it for weeks at a time.







It would also match my garage.
