Aerodynamic Travel Trailer with a Retractable Roof

The trailer has a retractable roof that creates an aerodynamic shape, which gives the Alto a drag ratio 75% lower than a traditional travel trailer. When the roof is closed the Alto has an exterior height of only 2,10m (83″) and can therefore fit nicely inside a garage.” – Living in a Shoebox

8×40 Shipping Container Home Design

I’ve designed and drawn-up my first 8′ x 40′ steel shipping container home plans.  It’s a 320 sq. ft. tiny home design.  While it is specifically designed for a shipping container, there is no reason it couldn’t be a stick-built tiny home planas well.  In fact, if you did that you could put on a gable, gambrel, or shed roof to get some extra storage or sleeping loft space too.” – Jay Creighton
