You will be inspired by this modern tiny house on wheels by Norways' Norske Mikrohus’s that promises to bring you closer to nature. The tiny house project is a 174-square-foot-home that that was unveiled by David and Jeanette Reiss-Andersen, the cofounders of Oslo-based Norske Mikrohus which showcases this appealing wood-wrapped compact design named Rast. They created Rast for anyone who wants to experience the outdoors close up and sustainably.
The exterior has a gable roofline, wood siding, and a metal roof. The 174-square-foot tiny home is clad in dark-stained Norwegian spruce. Designed by Jeanette Reiss-Andersen of Norske Mikrohus, Rast is a 174-square-foot tiny home clad in dark-stained Norwegian spruce. The tiny house on wheels is clad in local timber, with Norwegian spruce being light and weather resistant, which helps to make the home as lightweight as possible so that it would be able to access dense and remote areas. The fact that it has wheels means that it doesn’t leave any footprint.
The tiny house interior walls and ceiling are covered with a pale birch veneer, and the flooring is vinyl. The living area of the tiny home has a built-in convertible table and daybed.

The living room daybed converts to a bed when it’s time to sleep. A built-in table at the foot of the bed folds in and can be used as a nightstand or shelf. The tiny house designer selected a dark stain to make the Norwegian spruce exterior blend with the landscape. The interior walls and ceiling were outfitted with a pale birch veneer that expresses the wood grain. The birch veneer has a beautiful glow when oiled, with much of the inspiration of the tiny house coming from the Norwegian hills, fjords, mountains, and lakes.
The bath and a secondary sleeping area, equipped with bunk beds, are arranged at one end of the open-plan kitchen.

The tiny house on wheels is marked by large windows and glass double doors that swing open and tie the interior to the outdoors. The tiny house designers considered the outside environment to be just as important as the indoors, especially with this tiny house model. Large windows, even in the shower, provide plenty of sunlight and let the outside in.
A sculptural, built-in ladder leads to the upper bunk, and the bathroom lies next door. Rast is designed with Nordic weather conditions in mind, its roof can withstand heavy snowfall, and its walls incorporate thick insulation made of wool, glass, and aluminum. On sunny winter days, occupants can stay warm and comfortable inside while still feeling tied to the outdoors. The large window in the shower puts you in touch with the natural surroundings.
