This is a most interesting Tiny House or Vardo [as the owner calls it].
Seems more of a tiny house to me.

Unique design and outstanding finish.

All it needs is a round front door and it's a portable hobbit house :D

He calls the one pictured above "the Fortune Cookie". Here is his web site: http://www.zylvardos.com/photos.html

Really neat ideas.

I do like the overall shape and style. It isn't hard to make the curved roof/walls. It's a gentle enough curve that it could even be roofed in raised seam steel, but the cedar shakes looks so much better. I'd use that nail hole sealing roofing barrier under all of it.

Yep, that's one of them. You could use the cheaper ice and water dam stuff.

What it provides is a water proof membrane that you can nail through. This means any water that is driven in between the cedar shakes will be stopped from penetrating any further.
