- The Tiny Housing Co has created the Natura, an environmentally friendly tiny home on wheels with a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
- To emphasize the importance of eco consciousness in the build, its maker included solar panels, a water filtration system, “efficient” insulation and appliances, sustainable materials, and the option to upgrade to an Eco Package.
- The Natura build recently skyrocketed in popularity amid the pandemic, receiving three times more webpage visits than any other tiny home that the UK-based company offers.

The tiny house, which sits on a trailer for easy transport, was built to be both eco-friendly and luxurious. It’s also not the only little living unit that the UK-based tiny home builder has in its lineup: the curved Natura is joined by the Nomad, Endura, and Itinerant 1L, all with varying floor plans and exterior designs.
However, to emphasize the importance of eco-consciousness in the Natura build specifically, its maker included several features — both obvious and hidden — that convey this goal. This includes solar panels, a water filtration system, “efficient” insulation and appliances, and environmentally conscious building materials like cork boards.
“One of our big aims is to promote more eco-friendly living, be that using more eco-friendly materials, or just really trying to offer something new and unique,” founder and director of The Tiny Housing Co Dane Smith-Burchnell told Business Insider. “Tiny houses have been around for quite some time in America, Canada, Australia, but a lot of the designs are fairly standard in one way or another.”
“We didn’t see too many which either have curvature [like the Natura design] or use these kinds of materials,” Smith-Burchnell continued.
