Here is how you know you’re doing your mobile home right: the wood paneling is on the outside. This sharp looking cabin on wheels is the work of small home enthusiast Laird Herbert who hails the far north of Whitehorse, Canada. Inspired by the micro-living moment, Herbert was intrigued by the idea of building his own home. So after testing out a few prototype designs, he started work on the model you see here: the Tiny Leaf Verson.2.
Designed to handle the frigid Canadian winters, the Tiny Leaf is a custom made, self-contained, mobile house with a surprising amount of room inside. It comes complete with living room area, fully-functional kitchen, loft bed, a bathroom with a compact tub, and a open dinning area. Reportedly it is large enough to accommodate a family of four, cozily we’re sure.
The house also features many self-sustaining elements including a composting toilet, propane tankless hot water system, propane GE half fridge, Ecoheat electric baseboards, LED and halogen lighting and a 35-gallon water storage unit. The only thing missing is a solar powered roof to take it completely off the grid. Then again there is always Version.3
