Frankenstein-Like Teardrop Trailer Fused With Tiny House

What looks more like a Steampunk spaceship with glass wings is actually an artistic and environmentally-friendly tiny house/teardrop camper, designed and built by Texas-based Tend Building and Architend.

The Tiny Drop is both a teardrop trailer and tiny house.

Shelly Pottorf and Shannon Bryant are the main designers of the Tiny Drop. This efficient little house on a trailer is only 150 square feet and weighs 8,000 pounds.

The Tiny Drop features include a continuous thermal blanket, advanced home sealing technology, water resistant barrier (WRB), non-toxic finishes, sun barrier, and ventilated rain screen. The combination trailer-house also has a fresh air system, bath fan, on-demand water heater, LED lighting, composting toilet, and solar panels.

The interior features recycled materials and lots of lounging space.

The Tiny Drop weighs about 8,000 pounds, but that didn’t stop Tend Building from taking it on the “Drop in the Bucket” tour across the U.S. in 2016.
