Let's get rolling!

Otter Hollow Design is entering the portable tiny house market! Just last week, we received a deposit and signed contract on a 30 foot long tiny house on wheels. 

Yesterday, I travelled to visit Blue Moon Storage in Rockmart, GA. The owner, Andy Morgan, also sells custom trailers of all kinds. Andy is a super nice guy, and we spent an hour and a half looking at a 24 foot tiny house specific trailer. The trailers are nicely built, and his prices are at least 25% cheaper than other models I've priced.

The specs for our trailer are: 28' x 8.5'. We are going to add a foot to each end...more on that later. It has dual 7,000lb axles with brakes on each axle. There is also a battery operated "breakaway" switch, which will operate the brakes in the unfortunate event that the trailer should come unattached from the towing vehicle. It is steel tube frame construction, on 16" centers (meaning the tubes are 16 inches apart at the center of each tube, making it easy to install regular house insulation, as this is how a majority of homes are framed). The trailer will have scissor styled leveling jacks on each of the four corners. It also has threaded rods every four feet around the perimeter to securely fasten the walls to the trailer chassis. 

The trailer is supposed to arrive from the manufacturer today. My plan is to pick it up tomorrow (Thursday). Stay tuned as we tackle this exciting new venture!

This is the 24 foot tiny house trailer I looked at yesterday. Our trailer will be four feet longer. Doesn't seem like much, but it's a pretty big trailer!
