Last week I had the opportunity to meet another tiny house builder in Sonoma County California, his name is Stephen Marshall and last February he started a company call the Little House on the Trailer.
Stephen is a cabinet maker by trade and also a contractor. His line of homes are larger than the Tortoise Shell and Tumbleweeds, that are also built in Sonoma County. Stephen prefers the 12 foot width and only considers the home to be mobile in the way that you can move it to permanent location.
At this width a permit is required to move the home and it usually ranges around $150. These homes can range in size up to 400 square feet. You also need a large commercial truck to move the home to your location.
Stephen’s goal for these homes is to have you come to him and tell him what kind of structure you would like. You than spend a day or two designing the home. It can be anything like this old farm house structure design shown here to a modern design. You decide what works best for you and he will design and build it.
Stephen produces a wide range of structures, his basic shed structures start at $15,000. These are constructed at his site in a panelized format and hauled to your site and assembled.
He also offers, galleries and home office which start around $45,000, see example below of a gallery he has been building for a client.
His residential homes start at $60,000, which includes the design consultation and construction. Delivery is extra but is fairly affordable.
The Little House on the Trailer is having an open house and grand opening at the new location in Petaluma on Saturday November 29th from 10 to 4. For driving directions go to his site and click on the Contact Us page, let Stephen know you heard about his homes at the Tiny House Blog.
