Last year Sara Tomerup built the first prototype mobile landworkers cabin. It is our hope that we can help a new generation of farmers find their way back on to the land, living more closely with the land, using temporary mobile housing like this as a means to getting themselves established.
We are selling this first cabin to raise money to help fund our first planning application, Coed Talylan, a model of co-operative farm utilising a cohousing structure to develop accessible housing for aspiring landworkers.
Here is the description of the cabin:
This unique mobile cabin was custom built using larch, wool insulation and roundwood timber all locally sourced here in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. With a permeable membrane and two vents for passive ventilation this wonderful tiny house has optimum moisture control and indoor air quality.
Built for those who are sensitive to non-natural materials, it is ideal for anyone who wants a chemical free eco-home.
It has a brand new lightweight galvanised chassis, with all the working lights, and breaks as standard. Papers provided.
Weight is estimated to be just under 3 tonne, towable by a large 4×4 vehicle. Dimensions are that of a class two trailer: 2.55m x 5m.
The cabin is fitted with a kitchenette, and sink with plumbing for mains water. It has a woodburner with oven and space for one hob ( from Glastonbury Burners), windows are toughened energy windows. Mezzanine suitable for small double bed. Also features wardrobe and porch.
Larch floor boards and kitchen counter finished with a solvent free natural varnish.
Door is a lovely mahogany stable door.
Roof cover is Onduline, constructed with a natural curving ridge beam visible from the interior. Internal surface is natural wood panelling, can be painted as desirable.
