Kate and Simon built this 250 square foot off-grid Scandinavian-style tiny house as a cottage and have since started building tiny houses as a family business.
To find out more about their tiny house construction, you can check out the Cabane website here:
This tiny house is 8.5 feet wide, 13 feet tall, and 20 feet long. It’s been designed to be fully off-grid with a solar panel and 12-volt battery bank for power, propane for the stove and water heater, and a cubic mini wood stove for heat.
They used a soy-based spray foam insulation, and a natural oil finish for the interior wood finish.
We love all the space saving furniture they custom designed for their tiny house, and all the thought that went into making it a functional space for the couple and their young son.
The kitchen is massive with loads of storage space and countertops, and they did it without having overhead cabinets which gives the space a nice open concept feel.
The loft is quite spacious and can accommodate a queen-sized bed, and also has built-in storage and night tables, as well as a window for ventilation.
In the bathroom they have a 30×30 inch shower, a dry bucket-style toilet, and they have a grey water tank.
With the sliding patio doors leading onto a spacious deck, this tiny house merges indoor and outdoor living space seamlessly.
