Amazing Custom Tiny House Shell in Western Michigan

[img]Hi All! We were living on some property in Luther, MI- an hour-ish drive from GR...
but decided to move back to the West Coast for a Bizness Opportunity.
Miss Tiny is still there, and is waiting for someone who is ready to take over the project!

We have put over 10k in just in materials, and debated bringing her back here, but thought it might be perfect for someone who wants a project that is almost ready to go

She is on an 8x20 custom tiny house trailer from Ronco in Vista, CA. My husband, a talented woodworker, built a super sturdy subfloor and wall bones.
The floor is super insulated, and the walls are partially insulated. If you finish with our insulation plan, this house will be snow ready. There is space for a storage loft and a bed loft.
It has ceiling vents for proper circulation, Jeld-Wen double pane windows, a handmade door and windows/dressing. Cedar shingles that have held up with travel up the West Coast and to the Midwest.

She weighs over 8000 lbs, so is not ideal for a lot of travel, but she moves well. She needs at least a 3/4 ton truck with 4wd.
Once you get her to a place where you want permanence, you can brace her and lift her onto a foundation, and reuse the trailer.

This was our retirement plan, but have shifted our long-term plans to expatriation. Our loss is your gain, but we are stoked to see her go to someone who will appreciate her!   $8000
