Off-grid solutions

We could design your house to function off-grid without compromising on your comfort. In order to get local warranty, maintenance and on-going support we advice you to look for off-grid solutions locally. We could provide the necessary space and leave waiting connections to ease the process. Here are some of the most commonly used ones:
  • Victron based solar system with solar panels, sized according to consumption of tiny house and location.
  • Petrol generator to back up the solar system, if necessary.
  • Water tanks, pumps and filters system to connect to water source.
  • Grey water filtration system or grey water tank.
Note: Off-grid solutions require a certain level of understanding and some operation in place in order to use them optimally.

Extras

Other additional extras that compliment the interior and extrior are available with Koleliba tiny houses are:
  • Timber step ladder to house entrance /different width options/
  • Modular decking system with adjustable height legs
  • Garden swing

Trailer Types.

We offer houses built on park trailers suitable for larger and heavier houses that would be seldom moved, and mobile trailers for smaller and lighter houses that would be moved more often.

Park trailer – Koleliba

Customizable trailers, made for heavier and/or wider houses, which ensure that weight of the structure is properly supported. Usually, park trailers are more budget-friendly than the mobile ones.
  • Custom-made steel frame trailer, anti-corrosion black paint, spray-painted
  • Removable draw bar for safety and aesthetics
  • 4/6/8  adjustable supporting legs, 2 axles, 4-wheel hubs, 1 coupler, 4 rims - spray painted in black to match trailer
  • 4 extra strong cargo tires
Note: Park trailers are not allowed to go on public roads so the tiny houses are transported to their location via trucks. The trailers are used for local positioning only.

Mobile trailer – Vlemmix

Hit-the-road trailers from the best known brand for tiny houses building. Houses built onto Vlemmix trailers should be up to 3,5 tons and follow all the local and EU road restrictions for width, height and weight.
  • Legislated trailer /EC Certificate of Conformity, Tüv Süd, ISO 9606-1/
  • Knott axles with waterproof bearings
  • Stainless steel brake cables
  • Waterproof LED light on the side
  • Chassis completely welded and galvanized both on the inside and on the outside
  • Heavy folding nose wheel
Note: A lot of the tiny houses if well-insulated, fully-furnished and offering some off-grid features will exceed the 3.5 tons weight allowance. On average a 7.8 meter house in its bigger dimesion, together with all the equipment, would weigh somewhere between 4 and 4.5 tons.
