Just the problem of going uphill is a deal killer, as no matter the gearing, there is a limit to the amount of mass that an adult on a bike can safely or effectively petal up any grade over about 3 degrees. The owner would either start having to carry a tiny rope/winch combo to ascend the steep hills, or call a friend with a car. Also, a combined tiny house/green transportation solution already exists; it's called a "coastal cabin cruiser". Mount a bike rack on one of those, and petal around any coastal city as you like. Or take the bus.
