06/08 Breezy Boho Dream: Tiny Texas House Made From Two Gooseneck Trailers

tiny house from Vagabond

Mid-Century meets Marfa style. Small, but mighty this 380sf home packs a colorful punch. Built on two gooseneck trailers, the home features built-in hammocks, a removable deck, screened-in porch using Parasoleil copper panels and a custom kitchen island.

It’s true that tiny houses can sometimes feel confining, a fact that’s magnified when they’re set in places that get sweltering hot during the summer. Air circulation, insulation and clever floor plans and storage solutions are the key to making a small space work in a state like Texas, where temperatures often reach well over 100 degrees during the day. One interior designer has found a way to not only configure a comfortable space using unconventional materials, but also decorate it with a refreshing blend of mid-century modern and bohemian styles, adding pops of color and unexpected accents throughout the home.

Kim Lewis of the firm VAGABOND calls this 380-square-foot dwelling in Austin ‘mid-century meets Marfa style,’ which infuses the micro home before you even step through the door. A set of colorfully painted wooden steps lead up to an elevated wraparound deck, which hugs the base of two gooseneck trailers. The trailers are positioned at a 90-degree angle to each other with a breezeway in between, promoting air circulation and creating a network of indoor/outdoor spaces that encourage connection to the outdoors.
