Interested in the idea of living small? Why not take a test drive in a 400 sq ft luxury cabin at the Fireside Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The mountain resort is open all year round and caters to both summer tourists and winter skiers. Built by sister company and prefab home builder, Wheelhaus, the mini homes serve as deluxe getaways and show that living small doesn't mean decreasing your quality of life. In fact, the idea behind the small homes is to spend less time cleaning and maintaining your home and stuff and more time having fun.
Jackson, WY-based Wheelhaus builds beautiful prefab ‘rolling cabins,’ which is a much nicer way to say RV homes. Basically these narrow and tiny homes are efficiently designed, sustainably built and swiftly transported, and then easily hooked up to your utilities on site. You probably don’t even need much of a foundation and maybe in some situations a piece of flat ground will suffice nicely. Wheelhaus started their company off with the Wedge, a 400 sq ft cabin with an upsloping roof, an open floor plan living room and kitchenette, bathroom, and a bedroom that can fit a king size bed. Now the prefab builder has a whole suite of cabin designs to fit your size and budget.
For those thinking about downsizing into a tiny home, get a first hand feel for how it might go by renting one of the cabins at the Fireside Resort near Jackson Hole Ski Resort and Grand Teton National Park. Rent one of their 23 Fireside Cabins that are the perfect mix between rustic and modern and utilize energy efficient systems, high performance insulation, lots of windows and reclaimed wood. Nightly rates start at $225 and if you really are thinking about your very own Wheelhaus, your stay at the resort is completely free with their Try Before You Buy special offer.
