Tiny Modern Leaf House in the Yukon

Speaking of tiny houses, check out Version.2, which is the second tiny house built by Leaf House and Laird Herbert in Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon, Canada.  Herbert appears to be on a roll because his first home was sold and two more are on the way, provided this second home finds an owner.  In any event, Version.2 is a 20-foot rolling house of luxury with a sofa bed, full kitchen, full bathroom, and dining area.
