527 Sq. Ft. Townhouse in Denmark

The owners of this 1894 townhouse in Denmark have used all kinds of space-saving tricks to fit everything into 527 sq. ft.

Heading into the home it’s a tight squeeze in through a hallway near the stairs. The hall goes directly into the kitchen. With the living area to the left and the dining room in the far left side of the home.

Upstairs is the loft bedroom and bathroom with shower. This loft is large enough to walk around in and has plenty of storage furniture for personal belongings. The owners even removed part of the stair railing and replaced it with a permanent built in dresser.

Back downstairs, the back door in the kitchen leads out to a stone paved patio for dining al fresco.

Check out the photos below to see how this 527 sq. ft. townhouse looks.

    Very adorable. I’d fix up the bathroom a bit but it’s pretty great other than that.

    • Monika July 8, 2015, 4:33 pm

      My sentiments exactly!

      Did not mean to press report comment. Just wanted to reply to Jeremy. Jeremy, I agree with you that with some tweaking in the bathroom and it would be sweet. This is really nice house.

  • Virginia Richter May 27, 2015, 11:51 am

    How adorable! How very Danish!

  • Deborah Young May 27, 2015, 11:53 am

    I absolutely love it. It makes great use of space and doesn’t look as small as it states.

  • SteveDenver May 27, 2015, 12:37 pm

    This is bright and cheery — and larger than the carriage house where I now live. I like the outdoor spaces a lot.

  • Sara May 27, 2015, 1:38 pm

    Absolutely adorable. I would take it in a heartbeat.

  • liz n. May 27, 2015, 2:22 pm

    Ooooh, I like this one! If it were just me, I could live here quite happily, especially with the little courtyard out back.

  • vee May 27, 2015, 3:00 pm

    Nice use of space……I esp. loved the wall of drawers in the bedroom– a great idea!

  • alice h May 27, 2015, 3:36 pm

    Liking this one a lot.

  • Lisa E. May 27, 2015, 4:06 pm

    If I were going to do a foundation house, I’d like a copy of this one for me and my bear (6’2″). Perfect!

  • JanneZack May 27, 2015, 4:56 pm

    Yes, Please! I’ll have one. Thanks!

  • Karen R May 27, 2015, 5:15 pm

    Now this one I like!

  • Mary Bowerman June 13, 2015, 10:40 am

    This one is incredible. It’s beautiful, uses space pretty well and has all the things I would want in a tiny house, including a nice desk/work space.

  • kristina nadreau June 18, 2015, 8:49 pm

    very attractive and liveable.

  • Ann June 27, 2015, 4:00 am

    Lovely to see a perfect traditional building being transformed like this. Inspiration indeed for my 2 up 2 down house in desperate need of a transformation.

  • kirche July 2, 2015, 5:09 pm

    ahhhh… nirvana. that could easily be my happy place. it looks so much more spacious than the 500 sq. feet.

    plus, danes are the most normal of the scandinavians. i can say this after a two year expat assignment in trollhättan, sweden, and traveled many weekends down thru göteburg, then on to copenhagen, and finnish and norwegian locales as well. since i’m on the subject, swedes are the strangest of the viking breed.

    anyway, coolest tiny home and the worst problem you’d have is learning danish.

  • Debra VS July 4, 2015, 12:13 pm

    If it were for sale or rent, it would be a huge temptation!

  • Charles gray July 5, 2015, 9:58 pm

    As residen tial designer I have many small plans I need to market. This house I respect and find really nothing but 6 stars out of 6 luv all charles

  • Bev July 6, 2015, 8:23 pm

    I love the personality of this sweet home. Very nice.I like every bit of it. 🙂

  • Ellen Agerbak- Anderson July 7, 2015, 9:37 pm

    Being Danish left when I was 19 I have seen many small houses lived in by my six siblings over the years, but have now been in USA 40 years, I plan on a small house in my upcoming retirement , and I would remodle one in the Danish modern comtempary style, to the person before me, our houses are so old there was no running water or bathrooms when they were build, so that you can see the bathroom pipes and old walls when they get added you can’t put them in the old walls, a washer and dryer one on top of the other in there also, some just have a toilet in an old hall way closet, you wash up in kitchen sink, and go to public swimming pools to shower ect. Now I just wanted to know what town this is in? I just love our old buildings, thanks Ellen

  • Rohanna Rae August 13, 2015, 8:33 am

    Those little old houses in Denmark are all protected, meaning that they must stay intact, no renovations are allowed. I love that about Denmark! They are very strict when it comes to preserving old buildings, as they are an enjoyment for all to see. Also, I believe it is quite difficult to rent or buy one of those quaint old houses. One has to be quite fortunate to obtain one and there are many many restrictions! They are certainly not for anyone to just move into but so enjoyable to look at!

  • Gabrielle Charest February 25, 2016, 11:16 pm

    Charming, light-filled, good use of space. I think I want to move in!

  • Nanny M December 17, 2016, 9:33 pm

    Bright, pretty, charming. Irresistible.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 19, 2016, 10:47 am

      Totally agree! Love it. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Dusty Dailey March 10, 2017, 6:55 pm

    I really like this place!! I was born in Denmark but 3 yrs old when we moved to USA. Been back a few times & love the smaller houses & apts. Cozy!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 13, 2017, 10:15 am

      Oh that’s wonderful! I’ll have to go someday.
