TrailerWrap: Trailer Transformed into Ravishing Home

re fab vs prefab trailerwrap 1 TrailerWrap: Trailer Transformed into Ravishing Home

Modern architecture lays as much importance to recycling and sustainable design as it does to lavish interiors and stylish ergonomics. TrailerWrap is the brain child of Prof. Hughes and his Design Outreach Initiative which has seen a team of 50 undergraduate and graduate architects work towards transforming a run down, discarded trailer into a fabulous home. With a minimalist but elegant design, with efficient ergonomics and graceful architecture to mask the original structure you’ll never know that this was once a used trailer!

    Followed the TrailerWrap link in the text and got the answers I was looking for – thanks. Seems like there isn’t a whole lot of “trailer” left inside, but you still have to appreciate their effort to improve the built environment. One less trailer and one more great house!

    That is really amazing. The architect has done a wonderful job. Is it inhabited?

    Great job!!!! I couldn’t belive its a trailor, or WAS a trailer. But what did it cost?

    This is FAR from a rehabbed mobile home.

    It is made of mobile home PARTS and basically only used the trailer frame for the floor. The rest was stick built ALL NEW. So, where did the recycle/reuse go except for the frame? Everything else was thrown away!.

    You might as well buy a new mobile home since they scrapped everything else, using new materials, etc. so it wasn’t cost effective in the long run.
