Beautiful Tiny Cottage with Separate Dual-shower Bathhouse


This 160 sq. ft. tiny cottage with a loft is absolutely beautiful, isn’t it? This tiny house is located on a farm south of Stockholm. It’s there for guests (there’s a larger home on the property too).

For me, there’s something even more special about tiny houses without wheels. It’s just so classic and simple. I love it. How about you? I like the covered front door and I also really like the colors they used (red, white, teal, and black). It’s just awesome, isn’t it?

When you go inside you’ll find open living space, a tiny kitchen, and an upstairs sleeping loft. That’s about it! There’s no bathroom inside because there’s a wonderful separate bathhouse with dual showers. That’s where your washer/dryer is located, also. What do you think of this setup? Would it work for you?

          What’s nice about it is that if one person is more “high maintenance” in regards to personal care, you can both shower together but the slower person can ‘do their thang’ while you scoot about and out. 😀

          March 6, 2019, 4:09 am

          Simply curious. Why can’t you hang a flag over a window? Over here you often see it done, the local team flag when your county plays off against another, Irish flags during the Six Nations (usually), then there is the various world cups. I have ‘flown’ the Nigerian flag over an upstairs bedroom window and the Cameroonian flag over the living room window (my daughter supported Nigeria while I supported Cameroon, football world cup) and later this year the NZ flag will be over the lounge windows during the rugby world cup (support the All Blacks here). I do admit that walking into a rental place and seeing a flag hanging on a wall, especially one not belonging to the country you are currently in, would be extremely off putting and personally I wouldn’t stay there for that reason. Otherwise the TH is very nice but all this fuss over the way a flag is hung. Who cares, it’s a piece if cloth and nothing more, unless you live in somewhere like North Korea where flag=state=leader=near God-like status. Otherwise it’s a bit of fabric, in this case not even that of the country it is situated in, though maybe the golf or something is on and they support Tiger Woods, or something equally mundane. Rather see little triangular bunting with small flags of all nations, such as seen at present (England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales) or later this year most of countries in the world, much more inclusive and logical, but no doubt they have a reason. Maybe it just fills a hole in an otherwise blank wall and appeals to those who usually rent it, or a gift from a previous visitor. Just a piece of colourful fabric they like the look of on a wall, nothing else.

          Flag etiquette says that the United States flag should not be used for any other purpose than as a flag. You can buy patriotic fabric to use as curtains or clothing.

    Dueling showerheads aside (thank you, Cahow, for that mental image), this little place is perfection and Alec, I totally agree that color-scheme is great. Very warm and country. I also like the loft ladder being away from the food prep area. As a country person, I always cringe when I see open steps over countertops or sinks in THs. Chicken poop from the shoes does not enhance food, although my dogs love it.

        I am jealous if you’re tiny enough to frolic in that shower. So which one do you want? I could live in either one of them, and would hope that big wonderful pooch was included.
        Could you read the info that was posted on the larger house? All I understood was “moderne.” Since you are of Swedish heritage, why do they use so much black and dark colors? Something to do with the sunlight?
        Oh dear, my visiting sister-in-law just made a crack about the extreme unlikelihood of me getting in or out of that shower without a lot of soap and three paramedics. Not sure how to take that.

          Hey, Sal-Gal! Nice to see you on the web. 😀

          I’m guessing that the shower is 30″ across, more than adequate for anyone to get IN & OUT with ease; those tiles look to be 6″ x 6″ times 5 tiles = 30 inches. I seriously doubt that they are 8″ x 8″.

          Yes, I do read Swedish and a smattering of Finnish:t he property for sale includes the main house with furnished attic, stables, guest house, sauna building with bathrooms and three additional storage buildings.

          I’m confused about your “dark & black colors” question though, Sally. I looked at ALL the photos on the website; did you click on the link to see ALL PHOTOS? There are over 35 photos of the main house, the small house, the stables and PONIES!!!! If anything, you’d be *BLINDED* by the brilliant white of the walls and surroundings in a typical Swedish house…just as this one is. The ONLY room that was “dark” was the Mud Room, which are the first photos that you see. And considering that you’re dealing with country living and pony poo, the darker the mud room, the better! LOL

          I hope this clears things up for you, dear friend. 😀

          Oops. I didn’t mean this house per se. I subscribe to a few other house blogs, and it seems the Scandinavian home often have dark exteriors. Even with moderne styles, I have seen charcoal and other dark colors, and wondered if it was because of climate, or to mask the impact of ongoing snow on wood???. The old ones in dark browns seem to be referred to as “traditional.” There are several sites for real estate in Sweden, too, that sometimes feature homes in dark charcoal and brown colors. Fair warning: you’ll want a plane ticket there for Spring if you check out the real estate 🙂 sites.

          Mornin’, Sally. Well, now you got me thinking, and I LOVE to think and do research. So, using *bing* as my search engine, I typed in “Typical Swedish Homes” and came up with a million photos of at least 90% of the exterior of homes being in the VERY TRADITIONAL red colour with white trim. There were a few charcoal paints and some all white paints but not much variance beyond those two colours.

          Then, I typed in “Swedish Home Interiors” and came up with 99% of them being PURE WHITE with touches of colour. No matter what search I did: Modern Interior/Cottage Interior/Traditional Interior, the results were identical–all white with *pops* of colour.

          I didn’t find any examples of what you were talking about with regards to the dark exterior wood. Knowing Scandinavians as I do, they are extremely progressive regarding thinking but do so love their tradition in food and home.

          Thanks for the fun opportunity to learn a bit more about my heritage. 😀

    The double shower is probably due to being part of a sauna. That way more people can shower before the sauna then after a while jump out, take a cold shower and jump back in the sauna again. In winter you can jump in the snow but if you don’t have a lake or creek handy a shower would have to do. Of course you could also use it for warmer showers etc.

    This isn’t a comment about this house, adorable as it is, but a heads-up to the community:
    It seems we’ve hit the mainstream! I got an email newsletter from HomeAdvisor [the free alternative to Angie’s List] this morning. The featured article was, “5 reasons you might want a tiny home.” Wait, what?

    HomeAdvisor links people up with contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. Tiny houses will need fewer of those sorts of services. Sites like Angie’s List and HomeAdvisor would become less relevant as more people go tiny. And yet HomeAdvisor is taking notice. We’re converting the general population, folks!

    Referring to the 2 green soaps affixed to mounts on the shower wall, I, in “The States,” am having a difficult time finding a source from which to buy one of the different ways Europeans use to keep their soaps from wasting away into smoosh. I should have asked my German cousin, Ursula, and her husband, Reinhard, for their magnetic soap holder (different method than shown in the Swedish shower) when I was visiting them right before they started remodeling. PS: It’s been fun watching things I enjoyed in 1960’s Germany becoming newly marketed in the U.S. like Gummi Bears, Nutella, reusable grocery bags, etc. Now if only American grocery store cashiers were allowed to sit . . .

      Hi, Erika. Regarding the “green soaps”, are we sure they ARE soap?

      I thought that they were non-slip towel holders to hang your towel upon. They may BE soap but if they are, then how in the heck do they stay suspended upon that downward sloping metal thing?

        Hi Cahow,
        Google “savon rotatif” which is French for rotating soap.
        Here is an image of how the soap is suspended, including the metal sleeve that allows the soap to rotate:
        http://www.waterconcept.fr/savon-vis-ecrou-provendi/785-savon-jaune-rotatif-provendi-avec-porte-savon-vis.html
        Often used in schools and public washrooms in the 1950’s.
        My German relatives all have the magnetic type of soap holder which uses a disc of metal to be pushed into the bar soap.
        Google “magnetische seifenhalter” This is the one I’m considering for my bathroom 🙂

    I love the tiny homes but I really don’t think they are all that practical for a-lot of folks that are retired. I noticed the bedroom appears to always have to be up in a loft, but a-lot of elderly people don’t have the flexibility to have to use a ladder every night to go to bed or steep stairs. I guess if you had a bedroom on the first floor then it really wouldn’t be a “tiny” house any more….I am just saying this because i am only in my 50’s and have moderate to severe osteoarthritis in my lumbar spine, and severe stenosis in my cervical spine, c5 and c6. Arthritis is a major condition for elderly…

      To that end, I’m starting to see a trend towards “one level” tiny homes. So I say, keep your faith, the community is adapting! =)

    Dark exteriors draw the suns heat to the houses, white interior reflects what light they get in winter around the house making it not feel so darn dark in the winter. Here in wwwaaaayyy up north of new york state, do a lot of the same colours. houses hold some of the day heat for night time use. and add bits of colour accents and bingo, nice and cozy… just saying…
