Nelson Tiny Houses in Canada

Ever wonder if there are any tiny houses in Canada?

If so good news because in this post I’m introducing you to a builder in the Nelson area.

Builder of Tiny Houses in Canada

I had a chance to speak with one of the owners, Seth, over the phone and he seems like a great guy.

I also received some photos from his business partner, Tom, to share with you. Hope you enjoy!

This particular model is called the “V” and it stands for versatile because the home is super compact and efficient.

Enjoy the rest of the photos and the video below:

The purpose for this tiny house is so it can be used as a micro home, backyard office or writing studio that’s separate from the main house.

Great Craftsmanship and Woodwork Throughout

The footprint is 8’x13′ so it’s right around 104 sq. ft. Inside the walls are completely insulated and so are the floors and ceiling.

High Quality Materials

Five of the windows are fixed and two of them can actually open. The door is a french door and is big for a little house.

Slanted Roof

The shingles are made out of cedar and the siding below that is just corrugated metal. The roof is covered in metal too.

There’s no shower but there’s certainly room for a composting toilet and you can hook the kitchen up with water just like with most RVs.

The home features plenty of built-in furniture like the wardrobe, desk/dining table, shelving, drawers and sleeping loft.

    Nice quality work.
    The roof looks a bit too big for this home which in turn makes the home seem smaller (an affect you really want to avoid when building a “tiny” home) and it would be nice to see what material the roof is. Some people like/need large overhangs. Large over hangs are great for bird feeders, bird houses, and hanging plants.

    The inside has bright walls and a wonderful t&g wood ceiling.
    Exterior has rustic, natural cedar shingles with an interesting galvanized knee wall effect.

    I’m never a fan of these large double doors because energy wise they provide limited insulation, security wise it’s a large glass area that is vulnerable, and visually they dominate the elevation on a tiny house which in affect makes the home look smaller. A single, narrow glass french door would be an alternative to those who just have to have a fancy glass door. Also, on the inside all that space is dedicated to this wide door. I’ve seen other tiny homes where people have put in these doors, or similar windows only to come end up putting curtains or blinds over them. Yeah, it seems neat at first but, …

    Overall, 8/10. Nice work.

      > it would be nice to see what material the roof is.

      The article mentions it’s covered in corrugated sheet metal, just like the knee wall.

      I agree about the French doors. I’m very security conscious and I would prefer a solid oak door with a speak-easy. I’m not comfortable with all of those windows, either. Aside from the privacy issues, they are too vulnerable to attack. My first impulse would be to put crime bars on them. I think this builder should offer a second style/design for the more security conscious. This looks like a great little road house and it could include an Incinolet powered by solar panels on the slant roof. As a consumer to a Canadian builder, I would be looking for sub-zero insulating for minus forty weather and stabilizer bars to deal with high winds (I was in Niagra one winter and nearly got vortexed down the main street!) I’d also put a Murphy bed in it or a single-sofa-bed couch and more kitchen amenities. This is a cute beginning, but I think more could be done to make this an invaluable piece of equipment for those who like to travel. AND if the price is good, I’d be interested in having one. 😉

        This house is definitely built for the area. Nelson has pretty mild winters and crime isn’t much of an issue at all so I think that has a lot to do with the large windows and doors (this one ended up with a huge deck, so that’s probably the reasoning for the double doors.) If you watch the video you’ll see that the client actually wanted a separate bath house with a shower so I guess that’s why they didn’t want a shower in the house too. It’s not actually on a trailer either, it was put on a foundation (the big overhang isn’t great for a house that’s going to stay on wheels.)

    And the loft area?

    • Brandon March 18, 2015, 4:24 pm

      It has a small loft over a desk. Check em out on youtube, they do full walkthroughs.

    I like how there’s not much built-in stuff, most of the tiny houses seem really heavy on the built-ins. Clutters up the floor plan and it’s inflexible.

  • Sandy January 28, 2014, 2:47 pm

    I like the 8- sided tiny home.

  • Cathie August 28, 2014, 8:56 pm

    I was wondering about the land purchase to put your tiny house on. Is there special requirements?

  • Marsha Cowan March 18, 2015, 11:42 pm

    I love the big overhangs…so necessary in a tiny house no matter how much smaller they may make the house look. I had to make overhangs for my tiny bus back windows to keep out sun and rain, and a removable one for the driver’s door so I can keep the window down during rain. I also have a removable one for the screen door, too, which
    I have decided to make hinged so I can put it down when traveling. Overhangs are a life saver…
