At 592 sq. ft. this modular tiny home might not be that tiny to you. For a lot of us, it’s huge. Especially if you’ve been thinking about going into 120 sq. ft. But for most families, this would definitely be considered tiny. And that’s just one of the reasons I like to share tiny and small spaces with you on a consistent basis.
And as I always say, tiny is always relative to how many people use the home and how many uses the home serves. Some people work from home, have space hungry hobbies, or maybe even have lots of guests over.
So either way I wanted to share this amazing little modular home built by Møn Huset in Denmark. It comes in modules that you can choose from. There are kitchen/bathroom modules, living room modules, and bedroom modules. This particular example uses a breezeway too. I hope you enjoy it.

THANK YOU, Alex, for stating this philosophy, clearly, again! It just gets under my skin when the Tiny House On Wheels Police come to your board and bash ANY & ALL homes that aren’t…well…tiny homes on wheels! Grrrrrrrr…..! Different stokes for Different Folks, I say!
I’ve been watching that show you recommended, Tiny House Hunters, and despite every person/couple being shown T.H.O.W., NO ONE has chosen one…NO ONE! There’s at least 2 people who go looking (either a couple or someone’s trusted friend) and the remarks from at least one of them are “Are you kidding me (when they enter the tiniest of homes)!?!? I’d have to go outside to change my mind!” And in all the cases of the shows I’ve seen, the couple or individual either picks the LARGEST of the tiny homes shown or they customize one of the models and still take a home around 500 sq.ft. Also, 100% of the participants in this TV show refuse to buy a tiny house that does NOT have a flush toilet!
My attitude is: “If YOU aren’t paying for it, S.T.F.U. about how someone wants to spend their money!” Some people like less, some people like more, it’s just that simple. Completely OFF TOPIC: When radical bikers insist that EVERYONE should “Bike To Work”, I just laugh at their delusional and naive ways. What if your work involves DRIVING…a semi to deliver raw materials? A landscaper to work on someone’s garden? The U.S.P.S. to deliver your IKEA fold up table? Or, a contractor, like me, who hauls around all the equipment to do a construction job? Just HOW do you think all the raw materials GET to your site that you’re building your tiny home?!? LOL I can just see 25 bikes in a row, trying to haul timber up a mountain or into the desert to build a tiny house. ~snort~ OFF RANT.
This is an utterly relaxing and charming dwelling. I adore the cosmos planted right up to the door; our own garden starts immediately outside of our cottage, too, and you walk up a path of flowers and produce to get to our place. Not a sidewalk, mind you, a real path, worn into the soil. I love the giant dining/seating area and the “breezeway” would be one of my favourite places. They do sell portable screens that are slit down the middle; that would be my inexpensive way of screening this in during Summer Months. And “Thanks, Alex” for using the word “breezeway”; that word, along with foyer and vestibule are long, long forgotten words that I’m quite keen on.
Happy New Year, Everyone! I’m looking forward to 365 more days of Alex’s Wonderful World of Tiny & Small Homes! <3
Well said post, in all respects! Love the house too 🙂
Pre-fab, modular, cheap? Available in USA? I have room in my back yard for a house like this, but can’t find suppliers in the States.
I agree with you completely, Cahow! I too like to see small houses as well as the tiny houses on wheels.
I really like this one, and the flexibility of the modules so you can get exactly what you want – would want windows in the doors of the breezeway. The kitchen area is great, very efficient. Everything needed is there. I could live there very happily.
CathyAnn, I too appreciate both small and tiny home articles and photos here. Anything under 900′ appeals. Most people seem to live in one area, (in front of TV or computer, lol) and not in hundreds of square feet. Really tiny would seem to suit a single. But whatever truly makes one content, IS the issue, not size. I am not trying to impress neighbors or friends, like so many McMansion dwellers! Who needs a gigantic bath, for a square dance or orgy? Or kids rooms the size of a LR. lol
This home is super. I loved the large corner windows, breeze way, large doors to close. Very homey, brings me a smile.
One of the tiny houses on wheels from fyi network built for a teacher is now for sale! So much for their tiny living!
What a great build. Everywhere you look something happy is going on! (Love that polka-dot shower curtain, too, happy, happy!!!)
Three sleeping areas plus the loft I like the ability to us the door wall as a privacy wall the breesway and than double doors really give the split bedrooms privacy each with long windows there appears to be a lot of light in the setting areas dining room I find it very cheerful I would love a house like that especially since you can close it up
I also love the open-the-wall-to-create-a-breeze-way situation which adds to the adaptability, of which this house has lots. I would like this house, too.
Seems like this one must be for a larger family, due to the number of beds and chairs around the table. Love the breezeway!
Love this one! Being able to customise the build is just the perfect answer to space for my knitting/sewing hobby and my son’s vinyl record collection. Never heard of a breezeway before but love the idea and agree screening or windows would be a good addition for wet or colder days. The chimney is a wonderful addition too. I too would move into this one today. Thanks Alex! And Happy New Year!
Hi, Ann, and Happy New Year! Are you from the Midwest? I grew up with every single home in Minnesota having A) A mud room; B) A breezeway; C) a foyer/vestibule; and D) a coat closet. I have literally lost count of the amount of homes I walk into that have NO COAT CLOSET! Where in the heck do you store them!?
Here’s wiki’s definition of a breezeway, ENJOY!
“A breezeway is an architectural feature similar to a hallway that allows the passage of a breeze between structures to accommodate high winds, allow aeration, or provide aesthetic design variation. Often a breezeway is a simple roof connecting two structures (such as a house and a garage); sometimes it can be much more like a tunnel with windows on either side. It may also refer to a hallway between two wings of a larger building — such as between a house and a garage — that lacks heating and cooling but allows sheltered passage.
One of the earliest breezeway designs to be architecturally designed and published was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1900 for the B. Harley Bradley House in Kankakee, Illinois. However, breezeway features had come into use in vernacular architecture long before this, as for example with the dogtrot breezeway that originally connected the two elements of a double log cabin on the North American frontier.”
Thanks for the breezeway definition. I’m not in the US but in wild, wet and windy Wales (UK) but we do have good weather too when sitting in that breezeway would be heavenly! 🙂
Slight disappointment. I went to visit their Danish website and sadly, it is all in Dane-speak. 🙁 Often, Euro sites will have a Language Bar for English/French/German, etc. Apparently, they feel confident that only Dane’s will be interested in their offerings. But, we can take the inspiration from them and still enjoy the photos they share. 😀
If you go to the link and look at the bottom right you will see a link to Facebook where they post everything in both Danish and English.
If anyone wanted to contact them directly, I expect that they would understand English as it is often a fluent second language in the Nordic peninsula.
Thanks for the head’s up about the English version, Chel. 😀
This space is beautiful! I too appreciate seeing small houses on your site- with a growing family, 120 sq feet just isn’t in the interest of maintaining my sanity. BUT I am so encouraged to make our 900 sq ft “starter” home work for my family and then maybe step down to a 600 sq ft home. Thanks for considering the diverse needs of people who are interested in “tiny” living ideals and who can learn a lot from other community members.
Well said, Ashley, well said. “Thanks for considering the diverse needs of people who are interested in “tiny” living ideals and who can learn a lot from other community members.”
I’ve never understood the philosophy of “MY way or the Highway!” You want to eat quinoa and raw carrots? Yeah! You want to fry up a pan of bacon and eat it with relish? Yeah!
Same goes for tiny/small structures. If YOU enjoy a 100 sq.ft. home with no running water, flush toilet, or electricity, then YEAH! If YOU enjoy living in a 500 sq.ft. home with running water, a flush toilet and electricity, then YEAH! As long as we ALL do “something” to minimize our depleting of our natural resources, it’s all good. 😀
Are there any modular small home builders in the SouthEast United States that can create something around 25k to 30k? Once land and foundation work are done that would tend to be a magic number.
Did you ever get an answer? I’m interested too.
So far, the cheapest thing I have found in my search is not modular, but is a kit home, called Shelter-Kit. I can’t tell if they would go this small for a home, though they do have other buildings (sheds, etc.) that they offer. But their smallest listed size for a home (theirs are cape cod style barn house) is 800 something sf, and my math with their minimum price range lands that below $30,000. But I haven’t seen anything modular or prefab otherwise that goes that low, and it’s been disappointing.
I’ve seen converted shipping containers for under 10k Incl. wiring, plumbing etc
usually from China
Even though it is contemporary, it has almost a southwestern 1940 layout with the huge corner window and the spaces off the breezeway. It’s very nice.
this home is charming and functional. As I went thru the pictures I was challenged by thoughts of personal changes and improvements that would work for my family. To me, that is a sign of a good basic design….it can be easily augmented to fit a unique need.
The breeze way would be terrific for my adopted sons who are disabled and need an area to enjoy fresh air but are safe.
Hats off to the designer of this wonderful home!
Gusto del sitio,especialmente esta parcela de casas pequeñas.
I love the small homes as opposed to tiny. We need to accommodate a wheelchair so in general require more space and everything on one level. Thanks for including the bigger tiny houses
I like it, I like it. I want one just like it! If only I could be in Denmark!
This is so restful and functional! Oh, my heart!
Love this dog trot style house! Seems to be some issues with the draw on the fireplace though. Agree with the poster who suggested glass for the breeze way doors, so that they can be closed in the winter.
I would like to get an estimated price for a 562 sq ft shed in charlotte nc
Wow, Cahow said it best. I think the idea of living tiny or small is the idea to focus on here. These are not like traditionally larger homes. But this site shows us how you can live tiny and still enjoy all the things you love and oh by the way live in a smaller footprint. I love the ideas and the homes featured here are beautiful in their own ways. I hope one day to own a tiny home 🙂 It would be the ultimate adventure!
🙂 Precisely, Patrice!
Well designed little cottage & the breezeway idea is reminiscent of the old farmhouses in rural Australia built in the mid 1800’s connecting the kitchen and living space to the bedrooms. Those houses had verandahs as well but the breezeways were enclosed by building panels of latticework with a doorway and lattice door for access to the outside areas.
The breezes from the cross ventilation do keep the areas cool and the breezeways themselves are pleasant living space.
A sliding or wide opening screen door for the breezeway would be great in the warmer months to keep out any bugs attracted by lights in the evenings and to keep young children in. It could easily be latched out of reach of little hands. The deck space could be enlarged to be along both sides 0f the building if more safe outdoor space was required. Or even screened in. The plain design looks like a rural barn conversion which suits the overall theme to a tee.
Ideal…. size, lay-out and style!
This is very nice. When i first looked at the photos I thought the photos had to have been of more than one house. No all that fitted into such a small space. It looks like it is someones happy place.
On the tiny v small idea i agree, horses for course. I constantly try to mentally get my ‘stuff” into a THOW and it just wont work for me, so i design 2, a home and a studio. But then I cant tow 2 at once can I? and I really dont plan on moving around so I end up going for ‘smallish’ (not even small by some definitions). I have designs in my head that suit me much better and will probably see me out of this mortal world.
I currently live in a small house but I only use half of it because it is not a design that suits me and honestly it is on its last legs and was never designed for our climate in the first place.
My needs and interests have changed over the years and I am just not going to be quite so happy in quite such a small space as a THOW. That does not mean I am not still going to try and save the planet in my own way. But I am not going to go insane trying to squeeze myself into someone elses ideal and live someones elses life. I have had too much of that already.
Each to their own.
please send me more information on Tiny homes
Just to put some facts into this discussion. The above house is a summer house. You can not use it, as it is, for year round living. Building regulations demand more insulation on year round houses. And there are a few other bits and pieces that needs to be changed for year round living – Mind you in Denmark.
But I really love Møn houses. The layout etc. It has given me inspirations for my own building project on my summerhouse allotment.
