You likely have bitter-sweet memories of your days in a college dorm: tight apartment-style places with sub-par amenities.
Take a look at Sweden’s super cool alternative to dorms: tiny cabins. Sweden has a minimum-size requirement, but because so many students were “dorm-less,” they got exceptions to build tiny houses.
From the outside, you’ll see four lime green cabin structures complete with solar panels on the roofs and a white picket fence surrounding the perimeter. Each unit is 110 square feet. In other areas, there are tiny freestanding rectangular cream-colored tiny cabins which are only 93 square feet.
Take a step inside and you’ll encounter a crisp modern interior that includes kitchen, bathroom, living and sleeping spaces for a student. Having all those amenities, even in a tiny space, is a huge plus for students used to sharing those necessities. The cost? About $375/month, or half what it costs to live in other college cities in Sweden.
Ever wanted to live in the trees? This is a village of tiny homes near the Arctic circle that includes a “mirrorcube,” “nest,” and “UFO” treehouse!
Outside, you’ll notice the UFO house looks like something from outer space with a mechanical staircase that lowers to the ground welcoming earthling visitors. The mirrorcube looks like it sounds – a giant cube of glass which hides in the trees because it reflects them. The nest house looks like the home of a prehistoric bird that also blends in with its surroundings. The other treehouses are a variety of shapes and colors – some more traditional, and others more unique.
When you go inside the UFO home, it looks like a cozy place to stay for an intergalactic flight with plenty of beds and couches in the round space. In the mirrorcube, you’ll find yourself surrounded by plywood paneling with windows looking out on the beautiful forest view. The inside of the nest has wood panels and also two bedrooms: one with a queen bed and another with bunks for children. You can get a view of all of treehouses by watching the video below!

The home has a footprint of 28′ by 16′ and is almost 30′ tall. Inside, you’ll find about 876 sq. ft. of interior space between two levels.
The bedroom is on the first floor along with the bathroom. When you go upstairs, you’ll find a living area with beautiful views, an outdoor balcony, and the kitchen. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
