Carriage House Plans

Casita Trailers are so well-known because of they are aerodynamic, gas efficient, lightweight, and made of strong fiberglass material. You can buy a Casita travel trailer direct from the the manufacturer as they sell directly to the public. A two piece shell made of fiberglass makes these trailers desirable.

Choosing a siding style of manufacture versus a frame construction makes Casita trailers one of a kind. This makes cleaning and repairing the travel trailers easy and simple. Risk of rust and normal wear is lessened due to this design innovation.

Casita thought ahead and implemented a fiberglass bottom pan to alleviate rust and under carriage water leakage problems. Sealed wood flooring is another great feature in a Casita Trailer. This prevents deterioration due to road moisture and dust penetration.

If you'd like a travel trailer with great underbody strength, Casita trailers have strong steel frames. Casita even uses the best in suspension mounts on their travel trailers for sale. To reduce vibration from traveling, the travel trailers for sale include a rubber torsion bar suspension. This makes most Casita Trailers almost maintenance free.

Interior condensation is prevented with a highly insulated interior. This keeps the summers cool and the winters warm in a Casita travel trailer. Also, outside noise on the road is decrease by the insulation.

The lightweight, fiberglass interior furniture helps to decrease warping; make the trailer easy to maintain, and of course makes the travel trailer lighter. These lightweight travel trailers pull easily with a small vehicle. A Casita travel trailer can be hooked up easily which decreases hitch costs.

The aerodynamic design on every Casita trailer for sale enables low wind resistance when towing and low cross-wind resistance. Towing and stability on the road is increased by Casita's aerodynamic designs. This results in a safer towing and travel trailer adventure.

    Is there someone in Kelowna who can do a set of house plans for a carriage house?
    I need a set of blueprints for a custom carriage house and I would like to find a local Okangan business who does house plans.

      Hi Don,

      I have carriage house plans available as well as custom house plans or custom carriage house plans can be created to suit your particular site. I have worked in the architecture/design industry for just over ten years now and most recently I have worked with a local architect on two LEED Gold projects located in Kelowna. I have my own design company that does everything from custom home plans and designs, retail design, office design and interior design. I would be happy to help out and you can check out my website where you can find my contact information and portfolio.

      Regards,

    Best vacation place for a single guy to go over Christmas and New Years?
    I’m planning to go away over Christmas and New Years 2009. I’m a single male and want some place that is hot and just want to relax and have a great time. Has anyone been somewhere that they would recommend?

      Consider visiting New Orleans!

      New Orleans has a number of holiday events and attractions, including a NYE “drop the ball” even in the French Quarter. The city has mild weather from late October to early May and the city stays green all year most years (rarely freezes and almost never snows). We pay for the mild winters with hot, humid summers – particularly in July & August.

      NOLA is one of the world’s special places with an ambience unique in North America, and remains so even after Katrina devastated it in 2005.

      Katrina flooded about 80% of New Orleans with salt water, and the water stayed for almost a month. Much of the city is still struggling to recover and all you have to do to see devastation is drive around. It will take years for NOLA to fully recover from Katrina.

      However, the parts of the city that tourists usually visit were not flooded. It’s not a coincidence – the French Quarter and other old parts of the city were built on relatively high ground and only suffered wind damage from Katrina. Almost all of the damage has been repaired and you have to look closely in the FQ and city center to see that Katrina happened at all. You should visit and see for yourself.

      Note that the City of New Orleans is only part of the greater New Orleans area. The GNO area had a population of about 1,400,000 before Katrina and is estimated at about 1,200,000 now (July, 2007). The absent 200,000 are mostly from the City of New Orleans and the parishes of Plaquemines and Saint Bernard, which were the worst-flooded parts of the metro area. Jefferson Parish – just to the west of the City – suffered only minor flooding and has fully recovered.

      You can drink the water, the electricity & phones work, and services like the post office, hospitals, schools, and police/fire/EMS are operating. Restaurants, stores and shopping centers are open.

      Municipal services like street cleaning & trash collection collapsed after Katrina. Those services were fully restored in late 2006 and it is no longer an issue.

      I recommend staying in the French Quarter (Vieux Carre”) if you can. There is a very wide range of selections available, from moderate guest houses to very exclusive “boutique” hotels. Search Yahoo Travel and Travelocity for ideas and also check the hotel websites. Go to http://www.frenchquarterhotels.com for some non-chain hotels.

      You don’t need a car to get around in the French Quarter, Central Business District, or Warehouse District. Also, the parking regulations are Byzantine and there are lots of Parking Control Agents. If you drive or rent a car, leave it in a lot or garage unless you are traveling away from downtown.

      The regional transit authority (www.norta.com) sells 1 and 3 day passes that offer unlimited use of buses and streetcars for the day(s) you select. There are also lots of taxicabs.

      Regarding crime, use the same common sense necessary in every major city in the world and there is little chance you will be a victim of anything except a need to visit the gym:

      Things to do:

      There are many sightseeing opportunities in the greater New Orleans area, including carriage rides/tours, plantation tours, swamp tours, ghost tours, and even Katrina disaster tours. The steamboat Natchez also does a harbor tour. There are numerous tour companies and your hotel can help with the arrangements. Try to avoid scheduling an outdoor tour until you know the weather forecast for the day in question.

      The Saint Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operating street railway in the world and is a “tourist attraction” in its own right. It is part of the public transit system, as are the Canal Street and Riverfront streetcar lines: http://www.norta.com/

      There is always music, but the bands change: Go to http://www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to http://www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music. Note that music clubs often advertise “No Cover”, meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with “No Cover” often require that customers buy a beverage each for every “set ” of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so know the price before you sit down. The clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking water or nothing. It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it s delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.

      Wander around the French Quarter, enjoy the architecture, watch the street entertainers (do tip), and visit some of the historic buildings that have been turned into museums (go to http://www.frenchquarter.com and click on Historic Attractions).

      Assuming the weather is good, you can collect a sandwich lunch and eat in the riverfront park (watch the shipping) or in Jackson Square (a very nice park).

      The Riverwalk shopping center has an air-conditioned food court with dining overlooking the river (www.riverwalkmarketplace.com). The Canal Place shopping center is in the French Quarter and has a cinema and higher-end shopping (Saks 5th Avenue, Brooks Brothers, etc.)

      The lobby for the Westin Canal Place Hotel is on the 11th floor and overlooks the French Quarter. It is a great place for an afternoon drink/snack:(www.westin.com).

      Cafe du Monde is in the French Quarter and you shouldn’t miss having cafe au lait & beignets (www.cafedumonde.com). Another great coffee shop is the Croissant d’Or (at 615 Ursulines Street), which is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm and has food in addition to pastry.
      The Palm Court restaurant is very nice, has moderate prices, and traditional live jazz starting at 8:00pm: 1204 Decatur Street, tel 504-525-0200 (reservations are important and they are not open every day). The Palm Court is closed from about July 25th to about September 25th each year.

      All of the famous restaurants (Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Brennan’s, Commander’s Palace, etc.) have reopened. The Pelican Club (on Exchange Alley in the FQ) is not as well known but is the same type experience. Reservations are a good idea, and probably essential on weekends. Tujaques Restaurant (823 Decatur Street) is very traditional and has moderate prices: http://www.tujaguesrestaurant.com/

      Cafe Degas is a very French restaurant near City Park at 3127 Esplanade – which is not within walking distance of downtown (5 to 10 minutes by taxi). They are closed on Mondays & Tuesdays (504-945-5635).

      The Napoleon House restaurant is at 500 Chartres Street in the FQ, and has a menu of great local dishes: http://www.napoleonhouse.com/

      There is a free ferry across the Mississippi at the “foot” of Canal Street. It is a short trip but like a harbor cruise w/o a guide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/canal_street_ferry

      The Aquarium and Audubon Zoo are world-class attractions (www.auduboninstitute.org) and you should see them if you can. The Zoo is several miles from downtown. You can drive to the Zoo (which has free parking) or take public transit from the French Quarter.

      The Louisiana State Museum is in the French Quarter: http://lsm.crt.state.la.us/ New Orleans is also home to a number of other museums, such as the National World War II Museum (www.ddaymuseum.org) and the New Orleans Museum of Art (www.noma.org). Both can be reached by public transit: The WWII museum is in the central business district but a long walk from the French Quarter. NOMA is not within walking distance of downtown but has free parking.

      Check http://www.frenchquarter.com for ideas about other things to do.

      Hope you have a great time, wherever you go!

    Carriage house opposed to a regular stable?
    Hey, I was just wondering what a carriage house layout is like to keep horses.

    A friend is building one for horses. Does it have a center isle? How big is it? Does it have a wash stall? And so on.

    Thanks!

    • MAM says:

      Carriage Houses do not have any “set” plan Ask to see the Blueprints if you are curious as to how it is going to look..You may even offer a suggestion or two. Most of the time, horse buildings are designed by non horse people.

    How much would a 700 square foot carriage house cost?
    Hi, Im looking to build a small carriage house,( garage with an apartment above) the plan I like says it is 700 square feet, is this big, or how big compared to an average sized house, and roughly what could potential costs be to put up a house this size? Thanks!

    • Joel OYLBuilders says:

      700 square feet is rather small compared to most houses. However 700 square feet for a 1-2 bedroom apartment is just fine. Some people live in much smaller spaces comfortably, and some require lots more space, it’s really a personal preference.

      If you can find a low-cost on-your-lot builder I think you could do it for around $40,000. That would not include the land, site preparation (grading, utilities, etc), and the finishes would be very basic. If you want upgrades or you want to work with a fully-custom builder the cost could easily double.
