Tiny Art Studio on Wheels

Even if you don’t own land, you can own your own workspace, provided it’s got wheels. Stephen Marshall of Little House on the Trailer sells a tiny office- or in this case, a mobile art studio- that can be moved as a wide load for $1000.

In this video, Marshall shows us his art studio on wheels and talks about how to make a small space feel bigger they keep it monochrome (and white) and decorate with color.

Little House on a Trailer

by Kent Griswold on October 20th, 2010. 2 Comments

It’s a 12 foot wide home on wheels, but Stephen Marshall says his original house on a trailer isn’t a tiny home, but simply a little house.

The main living/working space feels more full-sized than the wee houses, but the kitchen is outfitted with a mini-sink and refrigerator and the bathroom uses an incinerating toilet ($2,000, no septic nor sewage hookup needed).

In this video, Marshall of Little House on the Trailer house company gives us a tour of his original small home on wheels.

The Human Scale of Tiny Homes

by Kent Griswold on October 20th, 2010. 2 Comments

Stephen Marshall built his first tiny home as a way to afford his own home in the pricey San Francisco Bay Area. A few decades later, he designs and builds custom tiny homes for people who need extra space, live-in caregivers, home offices and even those breaking county laws and living in his tiny trailers.

In this video, Marshall of the Little House on the Trailer talks about building codes, DIY and tiny homes, the Tiny House Movement as a media event and how McMansions are the fad, but tiny houses are here to stay.

Update below

Stephen Marshall from the Little House on the Trailer has been really busy this year with orders for spare rooms, guest houses and sound studios among other things. He has also been involved in setting up his tiny structures with solar for off grid use.

Stephen just posted some pictures of a guest house he completed recently and I thought it came out beautifully and I figured you would enjoy seeing it too. Nice work Stephen, thanks for sharing.

I just got off the phone with Stephen and the size of the Guest House is 12 x 24, and the completed price as shown is $60,000. Not including furniture, etc. The little red stove is electrical bought by the owner, most likely at Lowes or Home Depot, he was not sure. Stephen says there is a huge amount of interest in this one, so if you are considering it get in touch with him. His contact information is on his website. Click Here. Be sure and mention you heard about it from the Tiny House Blog.
