Caregiver Cottage for Sale

Stephen Marshall of Little House on the Trailer in Petaluma, California recently showed his Caregiver Cottage at the Sonoma County Home and Garden Show in Santa Rosa, California.

I visited with Stephen at the show and he said that he wanted to sell the Caregiver Cottage. The Caregiver Cottage is perfect for one person and has everything a person needs to live simply and comfortable.

The 8 foot by 14 home on wheels is built from Sing Honeycomb panels and is very light weight. Inside the home is a full loft with a loft ladder that springs up out of the way when not needed. I failed to get pictures of the loft.

The weight of the house is 2800 pounds including trailer it travels behind a half ton pickup.

The main living are includes a shower and toilet, living room area and kitchen. You can get a pretty good idea of the interior by viewing the pictures below. I was not able to get good bathroom pictures because of the angle, but it is behind the kitchen area through the door.

Stephen is asking $17,500 for the Caregiver Cottage. You can contact Stephen by phone at (415) 233-0423 or email him at info(at)

To learn more about his work go to his web site Little House on the Trailer. Be sure and tell him you heard about it from the Tiny House Blog.

I love this idea. I would live in something like this. In a heartbeat. The smaller my footprint, the better.

    It’s a cool little home with lots of potential. Steven is looking at making a 20 foot version also which would give more living area.

its a lot roomier inside that I expected.
I wonder how much the Sing houses weigh.
I’m guessing less than the Tumbleweeds since its on a single axle trailer.

    I’m out of town right now and have limited internet access, I will get the information from Steven and post it as soon as I have it. That is a good question.

WOW! Looks great and the it really looks spacious inside. I guess all the white walls are helping make it look bigger. Love the board & batton look on the outside. Great job Stephen!

What’s the loft look like? I assume without windows in both ends it might get a little stuff up there.

Hi Jeff – the weight of the house is 2800 pounds including trailer it travels behind a half ton pickup per Stephen.

where are the utillities? Where is the gas, are there water tanks? what type of toilet is it? How hard would it be to cut and frame an other gable end window?

    Hi Liz – this caregiver cottage has a standard toilet and an instant hot water heater. There are propane tanks for the hot water heater and I believe just a standard outlet to plug this one in. I’m sure it would not be that hard to ad a window. You need to contact Stephen Marshall at (415) 233-0423 or him at

    Hope that helps.
