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.

    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. 🙂

      I wish I was in the area and could! I’m afraid I’m not around to go take a video though.
