This classic 1954 Airstream Flying Cloud travel trailer has been meticulously restored by Timeless Travel Trailers. The interior design of the cabin is appointed with hickory wood, aged oak flooring, copper sheet, and genuine leather. For anyone with vision, a few building skills and a great set of tools, several of these portable buildings by Dix Enterprises in Wichita, Kansas can become a personalized tiny house. The Lofted Porch comes in 11 sizes from 8X16 to 14X40 and starts at $2,625 up to almost $10,000.
Each Better Built building will be custom built to your specifications, allowing you to specify such things as overall building size, door and window sizes and locations, and shingle colors that blend with existing structures. I suppose the thing you can do is, if you have a place to live and the time to do it already, is to take the plywood splice plates out and put in better quality ones before you finish out the houses. I’ve seen this type of construction for gambrel roofs in a lot of shed and cabins, basically they will not pass code in most areas for a dwelling.
We have a builder in our area who builds a portable cabin, or even a utility building as though he was building a home, and at prices that compare favorably with his lower quality competition. On the roof rafters, a few well placed Simpson connectors would go a long way to make them more structurally sound. Here in AZ I have heard that WeatherKing.US has similar buildings that may have been approved by local communities (Navajo, Hopi Reservations) for habitation as a home.
Mary said that she loves the freedom of being able to go anywhere at any time and still have her own bed to sleep in.
She could get a small plug in fridge, an inverter and a battery and even a small solar set up and go with it. The refrigerator solution you are looking for is called “Propane Refigerator”, they are super small mini fridges that allow you to power them with a propane tank that you can put on the front of your teardrop trailer! Good luck on your adventures, be safe and enjoy the time you have…the world is yours! Do you have a blog or a website where we can view more pictures and hear more about your adventures? Let me know if you have any information that could help me build a similar teardrop trailer. This tiny house family of 4 is packing for a 10-day trip and this is what the inside of their THOW looks like in preparation for it.

If you enjoyed this tiny house story you’ll absolutely LOVE our Free Daily Tiny House Newsletter with even more! Sorry, but this just does not add any sparks to my viewing pleasure, especially when I come to Tiny House Talk to see tiny houses! I like how they seem to use the upstairs deck as a balcony to hang out in, enjoy the view from, or just read in.

Do not wire money in any way without first seeing the home (or other product), checking title, and doing your proper due diligence. This iconic Airstream was originally used as a hunting and fishing lodge near Goose Lake, Oregon. The gleaming hand-polished aluminum skin captures the reflections of its natural surroundings.
Better Built Portable Storage Buildings by Dix are outdoor storage sheds, barns, garages, cabins and offices that are built onsite in Kansas and then delivered by truck.
I took your link and looked at the barn cabin which is the lofted style and it has the same 2×4 roof joists and particle board braces. These are a great step in the right direction, a much more affordable idea and they can be customized.
32 X 12 lofted cabin with give room for bed above door, 12 x 14 living area, 12 x 12 kitchen and small dining area, a 6 by 6 bathroom, and 6 x 6 storage closet. Bald Eagle uses all 2x4s instead of 2x6s in the loft and floor, they use OSB for the floor, and OSB on the outside, instead of T-111. When I first saw his work I was a little surprised that he could afford to stay in business. Mary Caperton Morton (aka The Blonde Coyote) is a freelance science and travel writer, photographer and a professional housesitter who has spent the past couple of years moving around the country every four to six months. Keeping things cold takes a lot of power and I just don’t have the roof space to run a fridge and make a living at the keyboard. It’s basically one clay pot inside of another(both unglazed), with wet sand in between.
He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories. The natural wood interior has plenty of storage and is fully equipped with the technology of a modern trailer including a 19 ” HDTV. Windows provide natural lighting, and a traditional style metal door provides security and convenience.


The end of the cottage features a larger door for adult access making it a very versatile storage shed. I doubt that it would take much of a wind load to turn it into an expensive pile of kindling. My experience with this kind of building allows customers to ask for special features, like windows that match their home, to have the interior left unfinished on the inside so elctrical outlets and switches, etc, can be placed where needed, and I’m sure other features could be requested.
As far as customizing is concerned,it is often hard to correct the basic structural flaws this building would pose to be used as a dwelling.
They need reenforcing to walls and roof structure to handle the high winds of Northern AZ, and the snow load has to be improved. Mary used to live out of her car in between housesitting jobs and carried her camping gear on the car’s roof rack – until she fell in love with teardrop trailers.
We invite you to send in your story and tiny home photos too so we can re-share and inspire others towards a simple life too. I live in a house with 850 square feet, do you want photographic evidence of how I prepare for a 10 day trip?
We design and build custom compact dry toilets that create a disposable or composting waste material.
Dix claims all of their portable barns, sheds, cabins and garages are built to hold up under heavy use and provide a lifetime of service. I think there is a place for several different levels when it comes to value, but it is rare to run across something that good. Ive also hear that the windows need to be sealed better, may leak around openings – damaging interior finishes. I considered buying a small RV, but honestly I’m nervous about going it completely alone at first. Most of the buildings are for storage, livestock and gardening, but three of their designs may make a great tiny house: the Lofted Porch, the Portable Casita and the Mini Cottage. Not everyone has the time or skills to build something like this but they can tackle simple jobs like extra strapping on the trusses, etc, if they felt they were necessary.

The inside of the building is still open with exterior stud walls that can be left unfinished, or you can finish the interior any way you want. We rely on old school craftsmanship and we save our customers a lot of money by selling only factory-direct and by customer word of mouth.
