Hi, we want to build a tiny home and make it as efficient as possible.  So we'd like to hire a consultant to optimize passive solar, ventilation, and other aspects.  Do you have a list of recommendations?

Thanks!  We plan to build on wheels so we can avoid the laborious permitting processes required for stationary homes.  It will be used in a cold climate in the upper midwest.

Yes, permitting can be a problem depending on location as a lot of cities and municipalities have minimum size requirements for new builds that can be far beyond the square footage of tiny houses. Be sure to find out locally if there are restrictions about parking them as well, that's the other issue with tiny houses on wheels. Best of luck!
