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

I love all the natural woodwork in this tiny home! I like how accessible the pots & pans are in the kitchen area. It gives it a homey effect and convince to access them. I like how much room there is up in the loft area. Also love the stairs compared to having a ladder to use. It seems like there is a lot of room in this tiny one. Thanks for sharing, really enjoyed viewing it! Carol???
Good choice of exterior siding/contrasting colors. Clever pots and pans storage idea. The use of the two CA state flags as cabinet curtains is (unintentionally) disrespectful.
In what way is the flag usage disrespectful? People put flags on everything!
It’s a generational thing, and you are correct. People do put flags on everything. Just disregard.
Wow… this has some nice features that seem to be missing in some of the posts. Like actual steps that could allow for the addition of handrail and storage. I also like the idea of the railing on the loft.
