Beautiful Horse-Drawn Wagon

Hello,

I was recently browsing our copy of Tiny Homes which was a gift from Ashlyn and Russell Brown, whose boat appeared in the book. If at some time you are looking for material for such books, I would direct your attention to my wife’s horse-drawn wagon, Tòti Bleu.

You can see more about it on her blog: totibleu.wordpress.com.

Beautiful Tiny House on Wheels



This tiny house is a true head-turner. Made from natural, eco-friendly materials and built by Tofino couple Alan and Venita entirely as a DIY project, this impressive home is filled with very clever design elements.

The exterior is clad in a mixture of weatherboards and cedar shingles which give the home a warm cabin aesthetic. Fortunately, the couple were able to find an ideal parking spot for the tiny house which had existing hook-ups for power, water and sewage already in place for RV parking.

As we step inside this home it’s hard not to be impressed by the simple, yet beautiful and functional design. The house feels open and light, while all the timber used brings an undeniable warmth to the space. Wherever possible, this home has used natural, non-toxic materials, including natural oils and finishes and sheep’s wool insulation to keep the tiny house nice and warm in the winter…
