All configurations are designed around a trailer build and can adjust to a longer Trailer. Consider head room when deciding between Roof Lines and Configurations. To calculate your living space, add the length of your trailer to the combined depths of all lofts, and multiply by 8. For example, a 20' trailer with one loft 8' deep and 1 loft 6' deep would be... (20 + 8 + 6) * 8 = 272 sq.ft. All configurations have the option of adding drop-down porches in various configurations around your home.
Configuration 1 boasts 2 lofts 8' deep, cantilevered 4' past the end of the trailer to add a total of 64 sq.ft. to your living space. You can choose to have your kitchen against the bathroom, or on the opposite end. Your entrance door could be next to the bathroom on the side, between the kitchen and living room on the side, or off the end of the trailer through the living room., and will be adjusted according to the available space.
Configuration 2 also boasts 2 lofts 8' deep. One is cantilevered 4' past the BACK end of the trailer to add a total of 32 sq.ft. to your living space. For this configuration, the best options are an entrance door off the back of the trailer to give you a roof over your entrance to protect you from the elements, the kitchen to back up against the bathroom, and the addition of a fold-away porch off the back of your trailer.
Configuration 3 boasts 2 lofts 8' deep. One is cantilevered 4' past the FRONT of the trailer to add a total of 32 sq.ft. to your living space. For this configuration, the best option for your entrance door is to add a fold-away porch to the front of your trailer. It drops down to hide the trailer hitch, and allows you to place your entrance door in the front under the cover provided by the cantilevered loft overhead, protecting you from the elements.
Configuration 4 boasts 2 lofts set entirely above the footprint of your trailer. Using 8' deep lofts in this configuration severely limits your open ceiling area, so we suggest either limiting them to 6' deep, or shortening the loft opposite the bathroom to 4' deep. This can be used for storage, or a twin bed oriented at right-angles to the trailer. Your entrance door will be adjusted according to the space allowed by the location of your kitchen.
Configuration 5 is the mirror image of Configuration 1. Placing the bathroom off the back offers the excellent option of placing your entrance in front under the shelter of the loft. This works best with a fold-down porch to hide the trailer hitch. You can choose to have your kitchen against the bathroom, or positioned as you come through an entrance on the opposite end. Tweaking the depth of your front loft will open up your headroom even more.
Configuration 6 is the mirror image of Configuration 2. Placing the bathroom off the back boasts offers the excellent option of placing your entrance in front under the shelter of the loft. This works best with a fold-down porch to hide the trailer hitch. You can choose to have your kitchen against the bathroom, or positioned as you come through the entrance on the opposite end if your choose to place your entrance in the front.
Configuration 7 is the mirror image of Configuration 4. Given the 5' depth of the bathroom, we suggest shortening Bedroom 2 to 5', orienting the bed at right-angles to the trailer, and setting the depth of Bedroom 1 to the length of your mattress... 6'. If you choose a fold-down porch with the entrance through the front you can hide the trailer hitch. Putting the kitchen in front reduces head room in the kitchen, but opens up the living space.
Configuration 8 boasts a single 8' loft cantilevered 4' past the end of the trailer to add a total of 32 sq.ft. to your living space. A second space about 4' deep underneath the loft can be used as a bedroom oriented cross-wise or a large closet. These options mean that the loft floor can be lowered, giving you the same headroom (~ 5'6") above and below. A 5' deep space above the bathroom can be used for an office, bedroom or hobby space.
Configuration 9 provides the same options as Config. 8 without the cantilevered loft. This reduces the area within your living space that can make use of tall ceilings unless you choose to split the difference and shorten the depth to 6'. As in Config. 8, This option allows you to play with your roof lines. For example, you may opt for a flat roof over the loft to maximize headroom, transitioning to a pitched roof with decorative dormers over the rest of the space.
Configuration 10 is designed entirely around the Master Bedroom. The bedroom is cantilevered 4' past the end of the trailer to add a total of 32 sq.ft. to your living space. The selling point is that the deck is just 2' off the main floor to give you tall ceilings and just 3 shorts steps (with storage on either side) up to your bedroom floor. A 5' deep space above the bathroom can be used for an office, bedroom or hobby space.
Configuration 11 is a single-bedroom option with the bathroom under the loft. The loft is cantilevered 4' past the end of the trailer to add a total of 32 sq.ft. to your living space. The remaining 15' of trailer length can be customized the same way as Config. 1 and 3, but for those who do not need the extra loft, it has the advantage of tall ceilings throughout. We would suggest furnishing the living space with a futon for unexpected guests.
Configuration 12 caters to singles with many interests or a couple who need their own work spaces. The 6' deep bedroom is located on the ground floor and boasts barn doors for privacy, ideal for a couple who work opposite shifts. The ceiling over the bedroom can be shifted up or down to suit the needs of the space above, and the open space above the bedroom and bathroom can be used for office, hobby or temp sleeping space for unexpected guests.
Configuration 13 takes the best of Config. 10, and extends the space over the bathroom to a depth of 8'. This space can be used for a second bedroom, or an office/hobby room with added storage space. The Master is accessed using 3 short steps with storage built-in on either side. This option has the advantage of feeling larger and, for longer trailer choices, opens up options to make your bathroom larger and more luxurious.
