After hours and hours of sketching many different designs, it wasn’t until I started to learn how to use Google Sketchup when I was finally able to create a design I was really happy with. I adopted the flat sloping roof style that Leaf House has done so beautifully. I had rather large fenders due to the trailer I bought so I really liked the idea of a multi-level floor. This means the kitchen and bathroom are raised above the fenders in order to get a totally functional, full-width kitchen. Underneath the floor I can add storage and holding tanks. The living room is small (of course) but I really wanted to make it as comfortable as possible with a nice love seat (maybe a sleeper) and a fold out table. There is a big closet in between the kitchen and bathroom that will hold most of our clothes and there is a little bit of storage space in the mini loft. Due to the dimensions of the trailer I had to design my “wedge” backwards, with the large end by the hitch. For the main door I decided to use a sliding glass door because it saves space and is a giant window.
Update:I reworked the design to move the high point in a little bit. The main reason for this was to make it more aerodynamic. An added bonus is that it looks a little more house-like. I ended up flipping the bed to keep the head area under the high point, and added a little half wall to keep pillows from falling off the loft.
