At the Roundhouse Workshop, we build custom structures on wheels that look like 19th century railroad cars. Our mobile buildings are custom made to fit your needs -- tiny house, lakeside cabin, mobile retail shop, backyard office, home studio, guest house and more.
Our reproduction railroad cars are constructed on road-legal trailers, 16’ to 30’ long. They can be pulled by a 3/4 to 1-ton pickup.
These are truly unique heirloom-quality items. We build these cars the way the railroads built their freight cars in the 19th century -- built to last. These are timber-framed and full of modern amenities. We only build a handful every year and each is customized for its owner, using quality materials, time-tested methods and a high level of craftsmanship.
These two photos show a 30' tiny house Boxcar we built. It has a queen bed, built-in kitchen and 3/4 bath. This tiny house is climate and moisture controlled with a mini-split unit, screened double-pane windows, and sheep wool insulation (R13). It has RV-style setups for electric (50amp), water, and sewage hookups (and could also have holding tanks).
A peek inside the walls shows our locally-sourced and milled hemlock timbers, sheep's wool insulation, and mortise-and-tenon joinery.
