One Trailer, Hold the Trash

This ain't your average Housetrailer...The Glassic by Breckenridge makes me wish I had a piece or property to plop one of these babies on. I've lived in a treailer (twice) before and couldn't wait to get the hell out of it. Dunno what it was. Maybe the low ceilings, small to non existant closets, or maybe just the cheap feel of the places.

Featured in the February 2007 issue of Wired Magazine, this one made me sit up and take notice.

However, this Glassic Flat looks pretty classy. this 400 sq. ft. honey is available in three different floor plans. one-bedroom, two-bedroom (no kitchen), or studio. All units come standard with a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass (motorized roller shades optional). Furnished or not.

For about $59K (at that price it is about $10K more than your average trailer).  This could be your crash pad extrordinaire!

DRAG AND DROP
Transporting a Glassic to your homesite runs up to $6,000. Simply rest the unit on cinder or limestone blocks, then hook it up to the local water and power systems. Oh, and don’t forget the broadband.

MULTIPLE BLUEPRINTS
Pick from among three floorplans: one-bedroom, two-bedroom (no kitchen), or studio. All units come standard with a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass (motorized roller shades optional).

FURNISHED LIVING SPACE
The Glassic can be outfitted with all the creature comforts of a permanent home — hide-a-bed sofa, dining table with seating for six, queen-size bed, washer-dryer, fireplace, and entertainment system.

Hmm...Could I pare my personal belongings down enough to fit into 400 square feet plus a garage or pole barn type structure? Wonder if any of my friends would let me park one of these in thier back yard!

Here's the straight dope from Breckenridge: The Glassic webpage. Pictures, Floorplans and specs (and more) are available there. Check it!

After I saw this, I started looking at other similar types of constructs and found some pretty interesting stuff. But that's a different post.
