Woolywagons 1

by Steve Auth

We build Sheep wagons, Gypsy Wagons, any type of Tiny House. What is really unique about our builds is they all have a Skeleton of a welded aluminum frame work with a sprayed polyurethane foam insulation with a metal roof of various colors for a four season usable tiny house.

We start with an aluminum trailer on our vehicle pulled models. Some on wagons,some pulled by horses, Woolywagons are perfect getaways on the back forties, down on the pond, a guest house, a cabin rental. Keep an eye out for our new Hobit Hut(tm) by Woolywagons(tm).

We also deliver our custom Woolywagons, built here at our Lazyaa B&B Guest Ranch, home of the Woolywagons, located in central Indiana. We welcome guest and DIY folk with a free stay at the Lazyaa during or after any Woolywagon build. Also, the Lazyaa welcomes all traveling tiny house folks for a great getaway, lots of shade, fishing, golf, billiards, canoeing, and camping. If your flying in for planning your Woolywagon your stay is free! We will pick you up at the Indianapolis International Airport and you will have our undivided attention.

Our pricing verys as you can imagine it so depends on size, material, type of wood (softwood vs hardwood interior etc.) Much depends what a client has to budget in a custom tiny house.

Here at Woolywagons we offer a no charge two day stay to go over what a potential client has in mind for their dream tiny house. Our designs can be pulled by compact cars, towed by trucks, horses, or set and delivered. Woolywagons are also available without a trailer & wheels.

We believe communication is important to reach everyone’s expectations. If you fly in we will personally pick you up at Indianapolis International Airport or you can rent a car for theforty minute drive north to our location. This allows you to get to know us, visit our shop, enjoy a stay in our tiny cabin or a Woolywagon with a campfire and enjoy the ranch.

I want too stress that we absolutely do not put any sales pressure on our guests. We make a lot of friends and hey our motto is life don’t get any better than that. Winter stays are cozy here, so folks don’t let weather keep you away! You all have heard of Hoosier Hospitality, let us show you what it’s all about.

Tiny House travelers are also welcome here. As a matter of fact, we are putting together a Midwest tiny house gathering here at the Lazyaa where it is very shaded and woodsy. So folks, give us call about the dates this year and visit our Ranch and Woolywagons Shop.

If you decide to purchase a Woolywagon be sure and mention you discovered them at the Tiny House Blog.

Holy Cow! This style of building knocked my socks off! I’ve been wanting to make a vardo for some time, but as I was reading and looking at the photos… The cost reductions in using this method are enormous!
Take a look at these tiny houses! The concept is utterly revolutionary. The costs are hugely reduced!
Get a trailer, build a small steel box on it. Now use Greenhouse Bendies http://www.hoopbenders.net across the top, like any Vardo, or any Conestoga wagon. Bendies are so effin cheap! The bendie tool costs only $50-$100. Because of weight issues, it might have be stepped up to bent luminum I-Beams, or closer fence bendies… Maybe more crosswise reinforcement.
For skin, use metal roofing.
DIY Closed cell spray foam insulation adds comfort and rigidity to the roof http://www.tigerfoam.com/
On the interior, use some forms of bendable covering, from plastic, tin ceiling material, plastic “tin ceiling” material, 1/4″ plywood or even fabric.
Finish the inside.
HOLY COW! The savings are enormous!

    Steve O and buy the way we will help guide you through the diy interior process if you happen to run into a snag. Our DIY models start at $9000 for a 10 foot model on a new aluminum trailer completely in closed weather tight with Windows and camper door with a screen door. When finished, weighing in at only approximately 1500 pounds very light and pulled by most compact cars easily due to our unique construction techniques of welded aluminum framing which we feel no body else can match.

Very cute and fun.

They’re really lovely – who wouldn’t love them?

David Remus - February 14, 2014 Reply

Very nice designs.

A price list showing past trailers with photos would be most helpful and save your valuable time from talking to us dreamers that definitely aren’t financially ready to build a home or order a trailer. I am looking into many options for small housing but I don’t want to lead someone on, fishing for information that should be posted at your site while showing off your handiwork. Give us some ballpark figures to work with.

Beautiful trailers, thanks.
