  2. I agree. It might create more wind resistance when driving, but I say so

  3. The first time I seen one of your videos I thought you were some kind of
    nut, lol I was right! Your the kind of nut who fits right into my way of
    thinking! You have the most awesome ideas that you’ve put into reality! My
    goodness if I had only half the ability to do things like you, I’d be so
    happy! Keep up the great work and postings!

  4. I will release the sketchup files for this design when I publish the ebook
    so you can download the file and modify it any way you want.

  5. Thanks, barn style roof really does give more headroom especially in small
    homes and no wasted attic. I used a traditional gable roof in my cabin but
    the ceilings were lowered to 7 feet to get more headroom

  7. You could use SIPS with studs on 2 foot centers to reduce weight. Roof
    rafters can be 2×4.

  8. Thanks- I am looking forward to building it and will be a real challenge!

  9. By far the most hardcore, heavy metal solar cabin video ever produced.

  11. – It seems like you are low on solar power. You could use an 85-watt solar
    panel for each of the batteries you have. But I am guessing you do not stay
    in your trailer much.

  12. Great Job Lamar. You inspired me to create my solar cabin and we love ours.
    Check out my channel if you want to see it.

  13. LOL- yes I thought that would get some attention!

    By solarcabin on Jan 28, 2014

  14. Lamar, Just one thing I would change. In the instructable site you wrote,
    “I seen a need for people” etc. It should read, I have seen a need, or I
    saw a need. Just a suggestion. This is really nice, even though it had to
    be so fast, you do get the concept very well. Great job, and considering
    that I could use one, I would buy it for sure. Hope all goes well. It’’s a
    much needed product today. Bless

  15. Finally! Someone else came up with a gambrel-style roof for a tiny house. I
    thought I was the only one. ;o)

  16. umm….U do realize that there is not even the slightest space planned for
    personal belongings? You must not have passed this through the view of any
    ladies. um…maybe small drawers to fit between the bed and the space under
    it? Enough to fit a couple of jeans, shirts and undies. Food for thought…

  17. That is totally it

  18. when it gets windy how do u keep houses like this from tipping over? O-o
    thats 1 of the things i been wondering about for the most part, and is
    there any way to get insurance for it? on another note is it legal to make
    houses like this that can expands out? (it looks like 25o but a room pushed
    out to make it 320 or something.. O-o dono really) i now it can only be a
    surten size to make it able to move it

  19. i like your vids,,, but the out door, real life adventures are much better
    than the vertual computer stuff.

  20. Thanks- the contest is judged by JD so no vote count but you could leave a
    comment on the instructable and that might help!

  21. Just picked up an old school bus, and was looking for ideas with solar in
    mind. Any thoughts?

  22. How is this project coming?

    By whatslife withoutpain on Jan 28, 2014

  23. Hey Lamar, Are you still offering the plans for $10? I can’t find it on the

  24. I agree. The barn style roof is the way to go on tiny space.

    By The66Channel on Jan 29, 2014

  25. Why isn’t the barn/gambrel roof used more? Is it harder to build or
    something? Is it structurally weaker or the same as a peaked gable?

  26. Myself also interested in things like this, I’ll share something I learned
    from the Aussies. A chest type deep freezer on a timer cycle requires about
    one tenth the electricity as a typical refrigerator. No ice of course, but
    very efficient refrigeration. Also far less recovery required after opening.
