258 Sq. Ft. Tiny River Cabin

This is a 258 sq. ft. tiny river cabin uniquely designed by Marion Tepp and her husband and originally shared on Small House Bliss.

The spacious outdoor deck allows for living and dining outside when the weather is nice. How amazing to get to have your own waterfront dining anytime, right?

When you go inside the cabin you’ll notice an open living room with a wood burning fireplace and at the other end is your small kitchenette and half bathroom with a composting toilet. Look up from the living area and there’s your rather spacious sleeping loft space thanks to the two dormers. Please enjoy and re-share below.

    Twenty years ago, when I had knees that worked WITH me rather than AGAINST me, I could have stayed here, indefinitely. I adore all aspects of the exterior/interior: the wood, the colours, the wee floating star lanterns. Very charming and whimsical, indeed.

      To Any and All Who Love This Home:

      Follow the link to Small House Bliss. It explains exactly WHAT this wee house is, where it’s located and loads more photos.

      a) An allotment house.
      b) Germany
      c) loads more photos to enjoy!

    This reminds me of the Old Days. Very organic and simple, and love those windows. I’d sleep on the couch to stay here. In fact, I’d probably live on the couch. What a view.
    (working on my brevity, per Doris’s instructions.)
    Thanks for pointing out that it’s in Germany before the usual questions start up about dishwashers and other US gotta-haves. The simplicity of this place is very appealing.

    Enjoy life the right way. Forget the dishwashers, etc. Simple basics are all anyone really needs 🙂

    This is the best tiny house I have ever seen! So comfortable and cozy but with plenty of space.And to have it in that location- could not ask for more…except to be able to live there full time!

  • Larry Schoenemann July 4, 2015, 9:04 pm

    Excellent small house. Love everything about it.

  • Bev July 5, 2015, 6:27 pm

    What a beauty–another one I want!! 🙂

    No shower, no storage, no closet space and killer stairs. View and wood interior…lovely.

    Looking for a small house/cottage like the one above on a foundation that is 28ft by 32ft between 2 ponds. Cottage home! Can you recommend anything?

  • Petra Messmer July 18, 2015, 1:31 pm

    where is it? Is it really in Germany?
    That would be perfect because I live in Germany too.

    • Marion Tepp July 28, 2015, 3:00 pm

      Hi Petra, yes it is in Germany, in beautiful Hamburg! 🙂

  • Lisa July 29, 2015, 12:16 pm

    Beautiful inside and out! Totally livable and could use the couch for sleeping if ladder too much for knees…

  • Nanny M September 2, 2015, 4:25 pm

    A charming star!

  • Liz September 2, 2015, 4:35 pm

    Other than the ceiling in the bedroom being a tiny low, this place is awesome, wonderful, great, and when can I move in?
