Here at Little House on the Trailer we build four types of units:

1. Small Homes

These factory built homes are designed and customized from start to finish. A smart way to attain extra space without renovating, these backyard units are on wheels for easy transportation

-Guest Houses: Beautiful cottages with a bed, bath, and living area.

-Home Care Cottages: Specially-designed backyard cottages for either a caretaker assisting a  person in the primary residence, or a  person living in the backyard of a primary caretaker.

2. Homes

We partner with a home production facility to offer a beautiful home at an affordable price. Fusions of cottages and mobile homes, our houses start with sitting down and designing the client’s dream home. Then we send our personalized designs to a factory, which builds the basic house. We then install all customizations, from bathrooms to cabinetry, and work with a licensed contractor to ensure a seamless installation. Our thirty years of experience in hand-built cottages, together with our partnership with the factory, allows us to offer beautiful, quality homes at half the price of a site-built home.

We offer a large range of sizes and options, and will work with you to design your dream home. Call to arrange a consulting session today!

 3.  Caretaker Cottages

Caretaker Cottages allow a caretaker to reside in the backyard of a person requiring help, or vice-versa: person living in the backyard of a caretaker.We offer complete customization to ensure you receive the quality and affordability you desire.

4. Second Units

 Little House on the Trailer builds Second Units, which, similar to our Homes, are built through the factory at an affordable price and can be customized and installed on wheels or a foundation. Uses for Second Units include: rental income units, granny units, guest houses, vacation homes, country cabins and vacation rentals.
