This is the Casita Verde tiny house on wheels by Chris Pearson in Santa Cruz, California.
I call it Casita Verde (“little green house”), as I built it for good interior air quality (minimal use of plwood inside, natural finishes like shellac and clay-based paint, non-VOC adhesives) and tried to incorporate sustainability in the design (wool insulation, cork flooring, composting toilet, low energy LED lighting, solar PV powered, low-E windows).
It’s built on a 20 foot trailer (2 feet are deck) and has about 130 square feet below and 70 square feet combined in the two sleeping lofts. We plan on using it as a vacation house. I had so much fun building it, I’m changing my career to THOW/small home construction. My website is casitaverde.weebly.com
