“Set into the snow, this abandoned house had the artist working in below zero temperatures to get the interior and exterior carved out just right. During the coldest months the dilapidated house was sprayed with thousands of gallons of water and left to freeze. The result was chilling, and at some points looks more like a thick coat of white acrylic.”
Could you live in 200 square feet or less? For most people, the answer to that question is an emphatic no – but perhaps that’s because you’ve never seen some of the amazingly imaginative, well-designed tiny houses that are popping up around the world. Tiny houses can be mobile (including awesome converted house trucks) or stationary, plugged in or off-grid, pre-fabricated or built on-site. Some are ultramodern while others are decidedly rustic, and though a few are just part-time retreats, many shelter occupants year-round. These 14 tiny house designs show just how diverse compact dwellings can be, from three-story apartments in urban Tokyo to whimsical cottages in the American countryside.
Uvershula in Nordland, Norway sits on idyllic seashore location with fine views of the nearby Lofoten Islands. Built by a local school teacher, it has a wood burning stove, coffee pot, and a hut log book with comments from travellers from all over the world.
