  • As far as I’m concerned, if it’s on wheels and pulled by a vehicle, it’s a “camper”, not a “tiny home”, or “cabin”, or whatever spin is being spun on these (attractive) nomadic dwellings, at the moment. Lovely images, though.

    Danno says:
  • @Danno: True, but the presence of wheels makes it very interesting: The flaw of many campers is that they’re made to move around frequently. And the flaw of most cabins is that they cannot be moved at all or only with a crane truck. Therefore I think it’s interesting to have something in between that you can install yourself and move to another location, if you feel for a change.

    Dan says:
  • Re Danno: We simple do not care about your definition of the term house. If you do not find this fully sustainable and up to date idea a House, find articles with vanity abortion from Hadid – BIG and others…. the list has no end!

    John Flo says:
  • @John Flo: It seems that you are using the term “We” pretty flexibly here and yet not open to a simple criticism. Danno’s comment has merit without needing to be insulted.

  • This kind of house is very popular with the tiny house movement, look it up.
