nomadiCasita Tiny House For Sale

We've called our house "nomadiCasita", a combination of Nomadic and Casita.

Casita is Spanish for Tiny House, and Nomadic recalls how it's designed to let you travel the country, stopping in different places for a day, a week, or a year at a time.

This one-of-a-kind house is NOAH-certified and built by the innovative design-build firm Carbon Vudu in Phoenix, AZ. It's designed for travel and to easily "boondock", live for periods of time without connection to electricity or water.

A main-level California king Murphy bed in the slideout section lets you relax and stretch out wherever you travel. You can lie down and watch the large-screen projection TV while the 12,000 BTU mini-split heater/air conditioner keeps you comfortable no matter the weather.

The kitchen is compact, efficient, and flexible. Dual propane burners and a standard refrigerator let you keep food fresh and prepare good home-cooked meals while traveling. The 50-gallon fresh water tank means you don't always have to hook up to water when you stop for the night. Eight powerful solar panels and three large lithium batteries provide enough power for all your household needs.

But the best part is the built-in 8 by 10 foot screened porch! A wonderful outdoor living area, you can set up tables there to cook and eat outside, or just relax. The porch doubles as secure storage space for vehicles when traveling. It's designed to carry a Smart car (sold separately!), and can easily accommodate other small cars, a "side-by-side" ATV, or a pair of motorcycles. Over the porch is a spacious weatherproof "attic" area easily accessed with a stepladder.



Back Porch

8 x 10 foot screened in back porch with weatherproof lighting and electrical outlets. Water and power connections are available on the porch for a mini washer. Back porch doubles as a "toy hauler" to let you carry a small car or motorcycles. Built-in ramps let you drive the vehicle(s) onto the porch. Heavy-duty ratchet straps fasten the vehicles to the porch for travel. Lots of weatherproof storage in a 4 foot by 8 foot "attic" area above the porch.
