IN THE WAY, ALONG WITH GIVINGThe idea to make a transportable cottage I have matured more in those years, when the travellers dream on road service was just impossible. So I decided to provide it himself. I must say that you made many years ago, the country successfully is now. After all, the campgrounds and motels are mostly located near busy roads. I bivuachnoe its housing break right at the place of rest, close to nature, almost causing her harm.


On the design of mobile giving had pretty to smash his head. A simple solution is to make it according to the type of van on wheels — was unacceptable to me. For such a garden would require a lot of storage space, the vehicle speed of the tractor was limited to 40 km/hour with increased fuel consumption, not to mention the problems with the registration.

The choice of trailer is under the cottage was small, and therefore decided to adapt it to what you already had — trailer “SKIF-2M”. The word “adapt” in fact little choice: the trailer I almost did not altered — drilled only a few holes in the top edges (the bends) boards and, if necessary, in pregna use it in the cargo variant. But the design of the villas under the trailer, really, adapted. But the trailer and folded it the country store with the car in a conventional garage, putting a trailer on the back Board. The country does not need to register. And again. Because the body of the trailer is sealed, it, along with giving you transport even to another chosen by the Bank of the river.

Design of cottages — prefabricated, panel. Once assembled, it is a camper with living (sleeping) room and a small hallway-kitchen.

Structural elements of the garden-Prilepa

Structural elements of the garden-Prilepa (the roof garden is not mounted):

1 – the main lateral panel; 2 — room panel (2 pieces, mirrored); 3 — trailer “SKIF-2M”, 4 porch; 5 — telescopic focusing (6 PCs); 6 — floor panel refrigerator compartment; 7 galley equipment; 8 — kitchen window panel (door not installed)

The length of the main cross bar (it is also a separation) is less than the width of the trailer to the thickness of the room panels. It can be installed on the front Board and is a liaison for all other panels. Panel core, assembled with nails and epoxy glue to the frame of pine sticks section 40×24 mm and lined on both sides with a 4.5-mm plywood. All mates bars of the frame (corner, tee and cruciform) and are made just the same way — vpoldereva. Total panel thickness — 30 mm. panels are made In the doorway. Door — sliding, made of 10 mm plywood and slid into one side of the panel between the wall (installed in the door opening during Assembly of the frame).

For attachment to the main panel other (before lining it with plywood) to each side of the rack frame on the inside attached to three steel pads welded to the nuts M8. For fixing panels on the wall of the trailer into the bottom of the rail wrapped around the screws which heads are then cut off. The screws in the top edge of the Board and countersink the drilled return hole.

Room two panels. They are the same size, but the execution is mirrored. The length of their bottom edges (1836 mm) corresponds to the length of the longitudinal sides of the trailer.

Disclaimer — it is bottom of the edges is done because in fact, their total length (mm 1940) a bit more and come out from behind the wall beyond the envelope of the trailer. With the rear and upper edges of the panels are curved (curved) convex shape. This configuration provides a gradual roof slope to drain water and increases the volume of the room.

Design room panels as the base, also a frame. Only here the frame is assembled from the bars thinner — section 40×20 mm. Pairing bars of the frame and the Assembly on the nails and epoxy glue are the same as in the manufacture of the main panel is in a half-tree. For the manufacture of curved (convex) profile frames panels used unseasoned spruce sticks — they are well bent. But for small radii made more triangular cutouts on 3/4 of the width of the bars. Latest bent as needed, and dried. The ends of the notches in the bars smeared with epoxy and glued together. In the places of rounding the window openings have pasted the relevant (triangular, rounded on hypotenuse) wood inserts. The inner lining is also from 3-mm plywood. The outer 2-mm PCB with surface texture under the tree. Here I’ll note that the lower edge of the exterior cladding is omitted just below (5 mm) strapping bar of the frame. This is how a kind of sleznick, which prevents the leaking of rain water inside the body. It would be nice to lower edge and lower (sometimes by the wind drops of rain still blowing inside), but the danger that he thin slesnick very easy to break off during transport and Assembly, were forced to abandon it.

Inside panels in the cavity of the frame, before covering them glinkovo veneer, stacked sheets of construction foam. Razed it to the bars of the frame a red-hot nichrome wire. Facing strapping the bars to the frame is glued with epoxy, to the inner grill and foam dots.

Main panel-partition

Main panel-divider:

1 — veneer (plywood s, 2); 2 —door (plywood s 10); 3 — door; 4 — frame (bar 40×24); 5 — pin (d6 screw without head. 3). 6 — panel with nut M8 (6 PCs); 7 — limiters door (rail 40×6)

Floor panel in the living room. It replaces the underside of a trailer. Wheelhouse inside the body is a lot of useful space. And because they along the boards installed benches, optionally with one leg. The bench consists of two hinged parts: a stationary seat and a folding sun lounger. Raising the bed and putting inflatable mattresses, arranged sleeping places. Benches made of the same 3-mm plywood and internal lining panels and are reinforced with longitudinal and transverse wooden bars. The edges of the beds trimmed to the profile of the front and rear sides of the trailer — not to interfere with the lowering.

Design of kitchen compartment started from the floor, or rather determine the size of its panels. Paul decided to place on the drawbar, and it has defined its length (which turned out to be less than the width). Width determined the proper size of the trailer. Just note that half slightly overlaps the body of the trailer and there samosogrevaetsya, but because he nemnogochislennye based on a lower edges of the wall panels.

The floor in the cooking compartment is made of 10 mm plywood, and the top glued linoleum on a pile Foundation. The floor panel has a big hole for a sewer siphon several holes for fastening the planks of the roof and the lateral through-slots for mounting screws to wall panels. Even the bottom panel is made of two nests (holes of) the place — this includes regular lugs on the cross member of the drawbar, which serve as clamps.

Wall of the cooking compartment is made in the image and likeness of the walls of the living compartment. In one panel cut the window opening in the other door. The cut portion pobednogo used for the manufacture of doors. The door in the usual, hinged, with non-opening window. The window, like all others, is made of Plexiglas in the frame of aluminum profile. Profile, I-beam, which is used principally for the device of false ceilings of akmagra. Its height (25 mm) and determined the thickness of the wall panels, as at the stage of designing a garden, I already planned to turn over the Windows and the door. When you trim unnecessary or disturbing the shelves on the I-beam was removed. At small radii shelves carefully clench (thinning), while the arching profile.

The roof garden is soft. Builders invest in this concept, the coating of rolled materials on mastic. But I it is made of tissues: the bottom layer of the tent, the top from “silverfish”. So this fabric I call just by the color, perhaps its industrial name — percale, but not sure. This “silver” is very suitable in its properties for the roof of garden — waterproof, soft, light, reflects the sun’s rays and even in the heat does not warm up much.

The roof also has features: its start and end parts serve as the end walls of the cottages.

The roof consists of two long fabric widths slightly larger than the villas, and the upper blade (“silver”) overlaps the bottom. On both edges along each leaf is stitched channels-kuliski. They inserted strong cords by which the two canvases are tightened and fixed to the wall panel. On the inner side of the lower cloth secured (nailed with big heads), at equal intervals of 30 jumpers section 20×15 mm of ash (oak and beech, and if of pine, it is necessary to thicker — section 30×20 mm) with hooks on the ends. Jumpers prevent sagging of the canvas and hold the bar at equal distances from each other.

80 mm from the beginning of the two canvases sewn together. The lower end of the cloth wound on top of the mounting strip to the inside and nailed to it, and the upper end of the cloth hangs out and performs the role of Lesnica.

In the nut plate are drilled four holes with a diameter of 7 mm. from the Top they still reamed out in these nests epoxy immured M6 nuts. With their help, the M6 screws with washers bracket (and roof) is attached to the edge of the floor kitchen section.


Bar of the living quarters:


1 – interior lining (plywood s); 2 — insulation (construction foam, sheet s20); 3 — frame (bar 40×20); 4 pin (screw d6, out head, 3). 5 — insert with a rounded (Board s20, 2); 6 — external facing (Micarta s2)

Caravan Assembly

Caravan Assembly

In the country installed three shelves. And sizes they are all the same. Their design is the same as a partition: wooden frame, lined with 3-mm plywood. Only they are thinner, their thickness, like the wall panels, 25 mm. Different shelf mounting. One for the electronic equipment, is mounted on the pins between the panels of the housing compartment above the rear frame of the trailer. The second is fixed on the pins and hung on hooks on the wall above the door of the room. The third is attached to the pins between the kitchen wall panels and “watermelon” (as I call the convexity of the end walls of the villas).

Build garden begins with site selection and unloading of the panels giving from the trailer, which are stacked nearby. First, on the front wall of the trailer is mounted and fixed props partition (main panel) and to it are screwed (nazhivljajut) with bolts M8 for mounting plate. Then on the side of the trailer side wall panels are placed of the living quarters and attached using M6 screws and plates to the bulkhead.

Then on the drawbar mounted floor kitchen section, on its walls. Kitchen wall also with the help of M6 screws through the plate mate the septum and then tightly perevorachivayutsya screw M8, finally pulling the wall panels to the wall. After that, the country is put on and tightened to the roof. And the last one. Puts to the entrance porch, like that of PI on a small stepladder, or on a folding chair. But it is a standard equipment trailer.

To ensure the sustainability of the whole structure in the Parking lot under the corners of the trailer and the floor of the cooking compartment are fed stops. They are telescopic, adjustable in height.

Panels and other parts of the garden for transportation starts with the roof. She rolled into a roll and placed on the bottom of the trailer. After that, the internal flare of the body to fit the bulkhead and floor of the kitchen compartment. Free volumes inside the body in this case can be filled with clothes and utensils, only to fix them there should be “travelling” by excluding their movement and mutual contact.

Further loading of the panels is laying in between soft material, excluding their friction between them. In this panel a little beyond the dimensions of the body, but are held therein due to the draped and covered after laying the awning.

The cottage is equipped with appliances that does not require a power supply (gas refrigerator, gas stove) or powered by an onboard network of the car (radio, television, video); there is also a water tank, shower tray. For waste disposal and discharge of wastewater under the cottage dug a pit, which after the “removal camp” is buried and rekultiviruemye.

To recharge the battery, used wind generator with a capacity of 10 Watt, which is mounted on the pole.
