Tiny Homes For Oil Field Workers

"My name is Stew MacInnes, founder and CEO of Maximus Extreme Living Solutions. My company builds self-contained living units. Self-contained living units (as we see them) are tiny homes that are permanently affixed to a mobile steel platform and are designed to have the hell kicked out of them time and time again and keep coming back for more!
   In all seriousness, we originally designed our homes to withstand the extreme rigors that are associated with the exploration and extraction of domestic energy. We designed our homes to withstand the weather conditions and terrain of the oil fields located in Alaska and North Dakota. We figured that if our homes could handle those conditions, then they could withstand a weekend jaunt to Yosemite.…"

Good looking house, beyond that it's got a livable interior...a lot of designs seem to be heavy on looking like a doll house and aren't so thought out for living in. A lot of men would prefer a more masculine or a modern look like these. For me personally, i like the look of an old railroad caboose without needing a locomotive to move it around when needed.
The question i find myself asking is how long something like this would remain serviceable in a full time living situation...but i suppose a lot of that is in the build quality and materials used...maybe the weather conditions onsite as well. Modern RV's seem to rot away in under ten years, many less than that, though i suppose they were never meant for full timers.

So, this is what you would call a 'frack house'?

Seriously, not sure what exploration and extraction of domestic energy has to do with the design of a house. (Actually, I do know, it's because Maximus has targeted this industry to sell to because there is so much loose money floating around in that industry and the people that extract are not the same people that live there, so they can just bug out when the air and the soil is polluted and the water undrinkable)
