Little House on the Trailer is a Petaluma-based company that provides affordable, energy-efficient, and “substantially constructed” houses for today’s mobile home buyers. For example, the company currently has a “Barn Siding Studio” available for immediate delivery for $24,000. The 200 square-foot studio was built on wheels and finished with reclaimed redwood planks. Marin County treats the structure as a shed, according to Little House on the Trailer, but it can be used as an office, backyard retreat, etc.
