Sarah Hastings’ is building a gooseneck house for her senior project. And not just any gooseneck house – a timber framed one.

The Mount Holyoke College architectural studies major decided in only her sophomore year that she wanted to design and construct her own tiny house on wheels.

Right now the trailer sits behind a garage on her school’s parking lot while she finishes construction.

Most tiny houses are built on an 8 foot wide by 20 foot long trailer. Sarah opted for a larger design (200 square feet) on a gooseneck trailer with a gooseneck hitch. Many folks feel that a gooseneck trailer is safer to pull than a bumper-hitch trailer, and Sarah has yet to decide on a tow vehicle for it.

I will live in it permanently when I graduate. I am searching for land right now, mostly in the Amherst/ Hadley/ NoHo area.
