    All I could think of when I saw this was “look at all that wasted space”. I think I am learning to think tiny house, no matter how big the house is. I do like the big open “window wall”.

      Your comment made me chuckle. For many, this would be too small for s bedroom.

      My first thought was walls of shelves, drawers and cabinets in each room to keep things off the floor and concealed. I also like a full-size kitchen sink and larger refrigerator, even in tiny homes — I rarely eat out and often have people over to dine.

      What would you do?

  • Catherine November 2, 2015, 5:06 pm

    I like the simplicity and space. Great built in storage in bedroom. I could live here in peace. I wonder if this is built with SIPs?

      Outside is covered with grey cement wood board. Ventilated facade with 12cm thermal insulation around the building.

    I love the stark simplicity of this home. Can you buy it in the US or do they sell the plans?

    • Suzanne November 2, 2015, 6:59 pm

      Well, first of all the house is small and rather stark. I thought that it would be great to showcase artwork, but it doesn’t have much of a kitchen so it’s hardly perfect. I have lived in homes that were 3000 sq. ft. and what I noticed was I still only used 3 rooms. Kitchen, family room and bedroom. If you want lots of cupboards or big furniture or a place for elaborate entertaining this lifestyle is simply not for you and that’s OK.

    Cozy and Sexy! 👌

  • john November 2, 2015, 8:29 pm

    I really like the minimalist approach – so clean and uncluttered looking.

    • Kristina H Nadreau November 3, 2015, 12:20 pm

      agree. this is lovely. ample room to have concealed storage if desired

  • Theo November 2, 2015, 9:02 pm

    I like the layout, but think the price is excessive.

  • Rich November 2, 2015, 9:21 pm

    I can always count being at polar opposites with most americans when commenting on european or japanese houses but I have some allies this time :) Unfortunately we would be hard pressed to produce one of these in the US for similar $$’s. Note the difference in width makes in livability.

  • Thomas November 3, 2015, 12:28 am

    What, if any, appliance are included at that price?

  • Diana Diaz November 3, 2015, 3:30 am

    Nice but maybe codes won’t allow in US, also why show us this home when we can’t buy it? But thank you anyways it is sweet.

    • Kay June 26, 2016, 7:27 am

      Why post it when people in the US can’t buy it?? Because not everyone who reads Tiny House is an American. Kay – from New Zealand

  • Allin November 29, 2015, 12:27 am

    This is will thought out and intelligently designed. To truly understand this house you need to go to the YouTube link. This house will be my next and last home. Once you watch the video you will understand. Form and function…art

  • jake April 24, 2016, 1:44 am

    Wonderful. Achieves tiny with simplicity.

    Solid timber structure manufactured with computerized numerical control (CNC). Exterior is a cement wood-board facade covering a ventilated space around the inner shell of 12cm thermal insulation. Inside timber panels are Spanish Fir dyed white.

    Kitchen opposite bedroom is nice, but bath by bedroom might be better.

  • Gigi April 24, 2016, 3:34 am

    ¡Me gusta mucho!

  • Michael June 23, 2016, 6:22 pm

    It has all what you need and it doesn’t look like a shrink house. I like the modern design without useless clutter.
    Wondering how much it costs.
    Mi gusto mucho.
