Transforming Tiny House on Wheels: Too Cool or Too Much?


I just found out about this transforming tiny house on wheels design by a new company called Ragsdale Homes. They don’t have a website yet but they just recently released this 3D virtual tour of what could be one of the coolest tiny house designs I’ve seen yet. It’s not a very simple design, but it manages to create more space than I’ve ever imagined for a house built on a utility trailer.

I’m curious as to what your thoughts are on this. Is it too complicated of a design? Is it the opposite of simplicity? Or is it innovation?

  1. It is definitely TOO COOL, not too much. A tribute to out of the box thinking!
    Not the same old tiny house design!! Where can we get the plans/details??

    1. Sorry, Cindy S
      Just read your comment today 11/10/13, however, I wanted to respond to your kind words. We have a lot of information on our homes available. We now have 3 videos on YouTube, an assortment of still pictures, copies of recent articles published on the internet, and we now have 3 models and will soon have a fourth. Our first model, called the “Prius” is a 380 square foot soft contemporary style, our mediterranean style with 480 square feet, a 1900s Sunday House with 160 square feet, and our new shabbychic, beach style for those who wish to locate at the water’s edge. I left you some links below. Ciao Jay

  2. Definitely innovative! I love designers & builders who maximize space & utility in a pleasing form. Waiting with baited breath for Ragsdale to finish their website & provide more details and specs. My kind of tiny home, for sure.

  3. I like it !!!! It is brilliant and people who spend their time coming up with these ingenious ideas are architect heros…The top is a great idea for potted gardens and a relaxing afternoon. I don’t know about all the tiny home builders, but I think the idea isn’t REALLY to run around with the tiny houses attached to a vehicle. Find a place, set it up and live.
    oops..gotta go, martini time…..

  4. You know everyone is different and has different needs. I love the creativity of this. I love that it offers a variety. I think we should celebrate all the different contributions. For a family if four or five this could be a tiny home. Some. Folks have several children and a mother or father living with them. Its great!

  5. This would be ideal, but I’m sure the cost would be way too high for most of us Tiny House advocates. I was flipping through links yesterday and found a company building tiny houses for $75,000. I think that is totally ridiculous, but that’s just my opinion. Whatever floats your boat.


  6. @Joy….I totally agree with you. No details at all. Just someone walking on an upper level deck.

  7. I WANT ONE…seriously…it’s gorgeous. I like the Tiny House concept but have not seen a house plan I like…until now 🙂
