Many shepherd wagons don’t have the functionality of a tiny home and are not really for full time living, however Barrel Top Wagons near Dartmoor National Park in southern England might be building some of most beautiful and practical mobile wagons around. Now they just have to make it over the the U.S. 🙂
Barrel Top Wagons build several kinds of wagons and even some mobile lodges, but their handcrafted Living Wagons are large enough to house one to two people and can be used as a vacation home, office, investment rental or even a full time home. The Living Wagons are 8 foot wide and come in 22 foot and 25 foot lengths.
The wagons have outdoor steps made of larch wood, round and casement windows, sliding doors and kitchenettes with beech countertops, a two-burner stove, fridge and sink. The dining area has upholstered foam benches with storage underneath and a sleeping loft above. They can be hooked up to electrical and solar and heated with a Windy Smithy wood burning stove. Bathrooms can also be installed and connected to an electric hot water heater. The beautiful wood interior is made from locally grown timber and finishes are available in cedar, Douglas fir or larch.
The Living Wagon starts at around £18,000 or $23,300.
