The Nomadic










Hello Tiny House Swoon team, I am an designer from Austria and this is my last project. I would be happy if you show it on your site. Its a mobile house and i was already traveling to several festivals with it, its made of cross laminated wood and can be transported as a whole very easily. I hope you like it.

A tiny house in Vienna, Austria that can be mounted to a truck or stationery on land. Designed and shared by Gerhard Feldbacher.

    That is the most amazing thing I have seen in a long time. The thing I like most about this is the fact it just looks solidly built.

    Wow, this is stunning. Looks good, love the exterior cladding, the dual access, beautiful glass windows. It is a tad modern, but the great layout easily makes that into a lovely home. The bump out is not up my alley but even if that bed was directly in the middle of the bedroom that wall would make a great statement with nice privacy. love how spacious it is. Gonna have to find out the exterior dimensions. Well designed and nicely executed. Even though it isn’t on wheels it is totally portable in a nice looking way. Definetely like the Stilted idea.

        It is transportable by what looks like a roll off truck . so it is like a container, on some serious legs. there are no wheels in the last couple of pics??

          Hello Carol, this is Gerhard, the designer of the house. Its indeed something like a container on legs, just that its made out of 10 cm (about 4 inch) cross laminated wood.
          The loading process works like this, the truck drives underneath the house and raises up about one feet, then the legs can be flipped to the side, the truck lowers again and drives away. This system (swap body) is commonly used in Austria, Germany, Swiss and some neighboring countries. For more information please visit my Website:

    This is very nice as far as it goes. It devotes a great deal of space to “openness” or “negative space”. Meanwhile, most females would agree that a house is not a home without a full bathroom. Maybe add a wet bath and then you truly have a house/home and not just a guest house.

      is the bath not behind the kitchen unit?

      • Gerhard January 30, 2015 at 8:50 am - Reply

        Hello Lisa, you are right, there is a shower combined with a toilet and a little basin behind the kitchen, separated by a sliding door. Unfortunately there is no picture, you can see details on the webpage

    I love the look, both on the truck and off. the kitchen is the best design I have seen in the tiny house field. must have a bath to be practical. I want to be able to wash my body and will not be using a bucket. the bump out could be nice but may not be necessary.

    very close to an idea Im brewing. Are there any more details on the build? Is the exterior plywood?

    Id love to know how the slide out was done too as I want to do the same but its getting a bit techy for me.

    would really like more deets on this, how it gets on and off the truck to.

    great stuff
