These images represent some of the more popular build shapes available for your Tiny Home. While the exterior finish may or may not be exactly what you imagined for yourself, these examples let you choose between the look of flat or pitched roofs, side or rear entrance, "boxes" or cantilevered "T's".
This is one of the least complicated and most budget friendly options available. It works quite well for all of our standard lengths, but is best suited for 18' or 20' models, most commonly with a single loft. The slightly pitched roof adds a little character to the design, but bear in mind that, since the maximum allowed height above the ground is 13'6", the greater the angle of pitch the more it will interfere with headroom for any loft space you may choose further in your design. On-site and Skid builds have more dimensional flexibility, particularly in width and height, which will open up your floor plan extensively and make lofts essentially unnecessary.
Named after the State Tree of Texas, the quaint design of The Pecan maximizes headroom by means of an almost flat roof. The model typically caters to smaller floor plans, but is scale-able for your needs. Choosing a single loft will leave you plenty of headroom through the rest of the layout, making the feel of this model much larger than the smaller design would suggest. On-Site and Skid builds open up opportunity for a wider, taller build.
Named after one of the most iconic mountains of the great state of Texas, El Capitan focuses on maximizing headroom for two lofts. Leveraging the minimum pitch necessary for water run-off and an abundance of windows, the El Capitan is ideal for buyers who have a beautiful property where they want to set down Tiny Home roots. This model appeals to a more luxurious feel, and the cost can be easily managed by reducing the size of some windows. On-Site and Skid builds reduce base build costs and give you the option of a wider build.
The Butterfly is named after the State Insect of Texas, the Monarch Butterfly because of the butterfly roof line. Contrasting colors and a shallow V-shaped roof make a statement hard to miss. The shallow V extending over the cantilevered loft guides run-off to a central down-spout, ideal for a cistern. A cantilevered space shifts the loft out of the way for a more open and airy feel in the living area.
The Casa Grande, named after one of the most iconic mountains in Texas, can be scaled to the larger floor plans and trailer sizes. Not featured in the image, it also provides the option of a roof-top deck if you are willing to give up a few inches of headroom inside. As with all our models, you have the choice of adding integrated/wrap-around porches that fold up against the body during transport. Two larger loft spaces can be configured for several life-style options. For On-Site and Skid builds, the entire design can stretch out while maintaining the look and feel of this model.
The Longhorn is named after the most recognizable of Texas animals and this model really stands out in the crowd. The roof-line is beautifully curved from the high point over the Master Bedroom in the front, to the lower end in the rear. The model may include the folding porch (lowered by your choice of an electric motor or winch) under the Master, or, to maximize your outdoor living space, a full wrap-around porch. As with all models, available options include a full wrap around porch solar panels, and an extensive selection of luxuries. Your only limitations are the size of your trailer!
