This special tiny house design was named after my daughter Hazel - who you'll see if you scroll through the pictures above :) The design was a collaboration between my mom (who is an artist and designer) and myself. It is the design that we decided to build for ourselves recently because I feel it's one of the most family friendly tiny house designs I've come across. 

The Hazel Layout

Built on a 2.8x8.5 trailer with part of the draw bar being utilised aswell
