Here's a great portable cabin that would be perfect for vacations. If you're thinking about building your own cabin to use as a holiday home, Rich Portable Cabins might just have what you're looking for. The company is located in North Powder, Oregon, so if you're not close by, you can also look for similar log cabin builders in your own area. Their cabins are designed to be compact, so they're easy to install and move if need be. This wouldn't be as portable as a smaller tiny house on wheels or an RV simply because of the larger size and weight, but it could be moved when needed. On the outside, these wood cabins look very warm and inviting, much like a log cabin or home. This is the most popular home that they build, and it has all that you'd need for full-time living or as a second home. It can also be moved by a professional tower with a semi-truck.
The nice thing about this floor plan is that it has two lofts, one is a large 21 feet long with 240 square feet and a ceiling height of 4.6 feet. So this would be a great place for kids to play and sleep, for storage or a lounge room. The loft is reached by stairs that come with a railing to make climbing much easier. Plus, they add carpet for maximum comfort. On the main floor, the bedroom can hold a queen size bed plus there's an optional bed storage platform on the back. There are also other variations to choose from, so check them all out. The bathroom has a full sized fibreglass tub, a standard porcelain flushing toilet and a sink with a large mirror on the wall. The kitchen features a lot of great storage for dishes and pots; there is also a great counter space with a place for eating as well. You can also add in a dishwasher and all kitchen appliances to make the tiny house feel like home.
The living room is right at the front of the home, and it's actually quite large, so it'll fit regular sized furniture in it. Sometimes in tiny houses, you have to go with smaller furniture and appliances, but for this one, you can fit apartment sized appliances and regular furniture. The wood cabins from Rich Portable Cabins also come with laundry machines, which helps out a lot too. The prices of these units differ from unit to unit, so it's best to call the builders, and they can give you a better idea of a price for your particular design.
The company also ships out to different states for an additional cost, so if you really like one of their designs, they may be able to ship your finished cabin out to you. Also, if you'd like your cabin to be off the grid, they can accommodate that as well by installing inverters with built-in chargers and batteries. They can also install solar panels on the roof or mounted on a pole so they can turn to face the sun. The off-grid options would also come with composting toilets, water tanks and holding tanks. Having your cabin or tiny house able to be off-grid would really open you up to a lot of different parking possibilities and would also be great for new landowners. You could live in the tiny portable cabin while you build your larger house, then once in that; you could use the small cabin as a guest house or a rental.
