    I love this one! She has oodles of storage for such a small space. The only thing I would have a problem with is there is no room for the dogs. I think i would need some extra floor space and maybe more lounging area cause who wants all the dogs on the bed. But i love the look and style!

      The Lucky Penny is 8′ x 14′ so it would be possible to stretch this out as much as you might need. For an actual travel caravan, 14′ is a perfect size.
      But if you don’t have plans of moving around, then added footage wouldn’t be a problem. I’d like a little extra footage so I could add in an Incinolet; this would cover all of my needs. I really love this build and I’m torn between this one or the “Lilypad” which comes in at 24′ and is also located in Portland.

    The colors are great and the custom windows really make the space stand out! It is small but looks very comfortable!

    Love it! Do you have building plans for this? If so, is it possible to get a copy? Thanks.

    With the bed that high off the floor level, you could put in a Nature’s Head *under* the bed platform — on a sliding drawer-like mechanism (or rolling platform) behind a door, to be hidden behind doors when not needed. Nature’s Head doesn’t require a hookup other than a flexible tube for an air exhaust fan. Toilets don’t need to be tall. One can pull the same trick with cabinetry.

    So beautifully designed! The exterior, custom windows and storage cabinets are spectacular! I would use it as a office/workspace.
