When designing her Water Wagon, Denver, Colorado artist Snow Marlonsson originally wanted a “tipi where I could brush my teeth.” As a result, she designed and built a completely unique and stylish little bathroom/laundry room on wheels that adds necessary utilities to any camping or living situation.
Snow Marlonsson’s Water Wagon is a bathroom and laundry room on wheels.
“The Water Wagon is meant to solve the problems of small RV freshwater tanks, odiferous black water tanks, lack of washing machines, noisy gas generators/gas requirements, high prices and tiny, low functioning bathrooms.” she said. “The idea is to use the Water Wagon to add water and utilities to a yurt, hunting camp, tipi or off grid cabin.”
A washer/dryer combo is accessed via the back door.
The all-in-one structure was built on a Carry-On Trailer from Harbor Freight and weighs only 1,200 lbs. The interior includes a full size shower with a drain in the floor, a Laveo vacuum pack toilet, a hot water heater and a washer/spinner combo from Xtremepower. In addition, the entire wagon is run with an EnerPlex 1200 watt solar generator and Goal Zero solar panels.
The interior has a loft, sink, shower and vacuum pack toilet.
Under the shower is a 100 gallon fresh water tank.
Underneath the entire structure is a 100 gallon fresh water tank and a 75 gallon grey water tank. Furthermore, the Water Wagon has a two person sleeping loft, hand cut walls made of recycled plastic and a fiberglass interior.
The drain in the floor leads to a 75 gallon grey water tank.
Hot water is supplied by an on-demand water heater.
The little house looks like a Hobbit summer cabin on the go.
The Water Wagon is currently for sale for $5,300. Marlonsson also designs and builds tree-shaped modular tiny homes and is interested in working on housing for marginalized populations.
Marlonsson designs other tiny structures that include her hand carved tree shapes.
“I just want to bring this solution; all in one utilities, to the people who need it most,” Marlonsson said. “Next, I’d like to build a large pole barn to house tiny houses for marginalized populations. I would landscape the inside like a forest, with changes in elevation—for privacy and visual interest. It’s very exciting that we can change the direction of how the western world thinks about housing—and it can be more functional and beautiful.”
