For those who like the thought of living in a compact space but don't want to get too cramped, the Custom 30 Foot House by Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses may be of interest. Built for a family of three, it boasts more space and home comforts than one might expect from a towable tiny dwelling, including a bath and shower, a dishwasher, and enough seating for up to six people.

The Custom 30 Foot Tiny House rests atop a 9.1 m (30 ft) trailer, and can be towed by a decent-sized car or truck. It comprises 18 sq m (197 sq ft) of usable floorspace on the main floor and roughly 9.2 s q m (100 sq ft) of loft space – which is hardly palatial, but far roomier than the Salsa Box, for example.

The home was part-built using reclaimed wood and sports plenty of windows and a comparatively generous lounge area, with a folding table, a worktop, a wood-burning stove, and seating for up to six people. Its two loft spaces are suitable for use as sleeping areas, and one loft is accessed via a staircase that contains integrated storage space. Toward the rear of the home is a good-sized kid's bedroom with a fold-down Murphy Bed.

The Custom 30 Foot House's kitchen area is remarkably well-stocked for a tiny house, and amenities include a full-sized cooker, a large fridge, washer/dryer, plenty of storage space, and even a small dishwasher. The bathroom includes a composting toilet, sink, a small bathtub, and a shower.

Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses' Greg Parham tells Gizmag that though it was delivered with a grid hookup, the Custom 30 Foot House has since been outfitted with a solar powered system by its owner, and that the home can now operate off-grid. It cost approximately US$63,000 to construct, and Parham intends to release the plans for the home soon.

The video tour below shows the interior of the home in further detail.

In "flyover" country, 63,000 would get you a pretty good starter home that can't be driven off. ;-)

Beautiful house traveling, but I do not understand why people who design these vehicles takes little account of the ergonomic features. This house is dangerous when it stops, uninhabitable moving

I think that is small and very stylish. I would not mind living int that.

Dangerously close to the edge of the road, if you hit a pothole with this contraption, I can see multiple flat tires and this laying on it's side in the ditch, resembling a open box of toothpicks that just fell of the kitchen table. This has way too high of a center of gravity and would be affected by any winds, making it nearly impossible/dangerous to move, only on a calm day ! This is one of them "it looked good on paper" ideas. So everybody out there sees one of these going down the road, I would suggest you hang way, way back and wait for the spectacular show to unfold. And please film it for everyone to enjoy, if possible.

This is unreal
