We use century-old tools alongside modern standbys to faithfully replicate features common to vintage railroad cars. Everything - from doors and windows to furnishings and details - is either handcrafted by us, made for us by specialized artisans, or selected from our inventory of vintage lighting, hardware and furnishings.

Heirloom Quality!

You can almost hear the whistle of the steam engine and the rhythm of the rails when you are nestled inside a Roundhouse Workshop reproduction railroad car. But you aren’t on rails, you might be in your back yard, or beside a babbling brook, or at the State Fair selling “Short Line Smoothies.” Welcome to the Roundhouse Workshop, where we build custom structures on wheels that look like 19th century railroad cars. Our mobile buildings are custom made to fit your needs -- tiny house, mobile retail shop, office, studio, guest house and more. Our reproduction railroad cars are constructed on road-legal trailers, 16’ to 30’ long, that can be pulled by a 3/4 to 1-ton pickup. We build these cars the way the railroads built their freight cars in the 19th century -- built to last. These are heirloom quality, hand-built and full of modern amenities. We only build a handful every year and each is unique -- designed with and for its owner -- primarily using natural materials and time-tested methods.

Like Cinnamon and Apple Pie!

Some things just belong together. We believe our cars will fit into any landscape, because at one time, boxcars and cabooses were in every American city and town. They swayed behind steam engines and dotted even the smallest country hamlet. Trains connected people and communities, and built our nation. We think our reproduction cars will connect families and friends, or service providers and clients.

Authenticity in the Details

Single Floor Living

No loft or ladders are needed in our boxcars and some cabooses. We can offer a remarkable amount of obstruction-free movement in a Tiny House, including a 3/4 bathroom, full kitchen, sleeping and living spaces. Our add-on decks can nearly double your functional space, too.

Accessibility

We also offer robust portable decks to accompany our structures. These decks (also on trailer beds) allow for expanded living space as well as access stairs, wheelchair ramp, or lift.

Authentic Doors

As was customary in the past, our boxcars feature large functional side doors on both sides, and can include doors on both ends too. Likewise, the cabooses have doors at both ends and a few even sported sliding side doors too!

Adaptable and Practical Uses

Railroad Cars Have Always Been Versatile. As former railroaders we at The Roundhouse Workshop know well that railroads, since their beginning, often pressed older rail equipment into new roles. Retired cars served as living quarters, offices, kitchens, workshops, even barbershops.

Work

Added space - Small businesses often need extra space, and space that goes where they go. Need a tasting room for your winery or craft brewery, worksite office, interpretive center for a park or museum, place to talk with clients, ticket booth? We customize. Studio - Our cars are the perfect size for a studio for your trade, hobby or craft. They are eye-catching, practical, inspirational, and mobile! Video editing or recording lab, potter’s studio, jeweler’s workshop, sewing room, carpenter’s shop, writer’s retreat… Home Office - Working from home? This is the perfect way to stay home, but separate from the family. It also makes a great impression for meetings with clients. Retail - Our cars, because of their visual appeal and mobility, make the perfect retail structure. Their visual appeal draws in customers. Their mobility means you can sell almost anywhere. Fairs, farmer’s markets. A small caboose works for selling pottery, jewelry, vintage clothing - - you name it. We can even include a dressing room or pantry. We can also customize these as a food truck. Events - Our cars make beautiful additions to tent events, like weddings and parties. Perfect as a backdrop in photos, but also as the open bar, bride’s dressing room, or souvenir shop.

Stay

Tiny House - If you want to live tiny, we can work with you to fit your needs. One of our clients really likes to cook and now has a beautiful large kitchen in her tiny house boxcar. You might prefer a larger lounge space or bathroom. How we distribute the space is up to you, as each build is custom-designed. Did you know that cabooses were often essentially mobile homes? Guest suite - In-laws visit often? Old friends? Give them a private bath and bedroom, maybe a small kitchenette. They can visit without imposing. Recreation/Vacation - You could use the same caboose or boxcar as your “cottage by the lake” in summer and your “cabin in the mountains” in winter -- just tow it twice a year. A retreat that goes where you need it. Shed - Our cars can be outbuildings wherever you need them on your property -- garden shed, pool house, luxury chicken coop.

Play

Entertaining - We decked out our first boxcar as a pub, complete with oak top bar, large tv, taps, and seating for several couples. As we toured it around, the visiting crowds have loved imagining themselves inviting friends over for the big game or season finale, hosting unique happy hours, or meeting with their book club. Gaming - Poker night and video gaming take on a whole new look with your own dedicated space. Kids’ Hangout - Remember “The Boxcar Children” books -- how about a boxcar for the kids? Or keep the teens and their pals close by but not too close. Solitude - A caboose in the backyard all your own? We customize each build to your needs. Remember, adding on a portable deck an nearly double your functional square footage.
Behind the simple and colorful exteriors of our cars are heavy duty wood frames with solid steel connections, just like their 19th century predecessors. These frames were designed to be pulled and pushed by an 80-ton locomotive and get their contents securely to their destinations. Unlike the average tiny house, shed or hut with stud frames and usually a short life-expectancy, our cars are built using full-dimension, wood beams of 3x5” and 3x6” (actual dimensions). Five-eighths-inch steel rods hold the entire frame in compression. These cars are built to last for generations. For insulation, we use 100% natural sheep’s wool. Modern electrical service is throughout and discrete LED lighting sets the right tone. Weights are carefully calculated before and during our build to keep our cars towable and road legal.
