Blue trim contrasts well with the light wood.

The floors are cork! What do you think?

Skinny stove and plenty of cabinets in the kitchen.

Perfect! A Murphy bed provides ground-floor sleeping.

Bright and clean bathroom with washer/dryer combo.

    I am not a huge fan of container tiny houses. However, this one was built very well.

    Very nice design. Cork flooring is very easy on your feet.

      I have never stepped on it before! I’d love to try it.

    Well done! Impressive design and execution. There appears to be ample room for a couch/living area at the far end with the double glass doors – just hard to gauge by the pics. The kitchen is just big enough with all the necessities, and the bathroom looks great – love how they incorporated the W/D unit and large closet space for linens, clothing, etc. in there (just wish there were a pic of the shower!). If I had somewhere to put this home, I would place a bid, for sure. 🙂
