Couple Live Tiny in A-frame Cabin in Belgium

This tiny A-frame cabin in Leuven, Belgium is a temporary house for Inne Van Engeland and her partner.

The couple was able to reconstruct this structure with mostly recycled materials and make it work with their needs.

They did have their considers about living in such a small space. But the couple say they love living in their small wooden castle with their puppy Hank.

In the cabin there is plenty of space for entertaining guest. And don’t miss the cool stairs they have going up to the bedroom.

Now check out the photos below and see what you think of their design.

    Creative design and would sure handle a heavy snow load with the ‘A’ frame style. Love the white interior which helps it not be claustrophobic.

    Nice job! Congrats on your TH. I love your little dog, I too have a little red female dachshund, her name is Molly. 🙂 I think they are perfect for tiny living. Update, we now have moved finally to a small two bedroom apt. 11oo sq.ft. from the 1900 sq.ft. so we are going in the right direction 🙂 baby steps hehehe I Will have my tiny one day, you’ll see. This is good the way we are doing it gives us time to downsize the stuff as well as the house itself. We’ll see, here is hoping it won’t take oh so long. This place the plan is to live here closer to his job for at least the 5 years til his second retirement. Then, we shall see what’s up. Take care, God bless you all and happy trails!

    Does anyone know the square footage of the A-Frame, and how tall it is?

  • Avatar Steph February 2, 2015, 11:02 pm

    I would love floor plans for this. Best small A frame layout I’ve seen so far. Possibilities for individual tweaks looks plentiful also, I like that. What was the sq. footage on this ?

      Totally agree!

    Just a great little house! We are building one something like that. Just wanted to say breast job

    I presume Gary’s comment is a typo???!

    Love it. It looks big enough inside to be liveable. I would need proper stairs, as I am getting on a bit! Otherwise, just lovely!

      Ha! Auto correct strikes again.
      I really like this A-frame. It seems more economical than most.
      (I wouldn’t want to try those stairs in a pencil-skirt!)

  • Avatar Joe November 22, 2015, 12:01 pm

    I assume those stair steps make it easier to walk up the steep angle??

    The dark roof would collect sun heat where I live.

    Looks great.

    That dog is way to big though.

    an honest approach balancing the assets and limitations of a small ‘a-frame’. get’s my vote!

  • Avatar Manfred November 22, 2015, 12:58 pm

    TH rules ! On wheels
    But where you put em ?

  • Avatar Peter Piper November 22, 2015, 7:55 pm

    Bummer… no shower. But the rest is fastastic!

  • Avatar Patty November 23, 2015, 2:00 am

    Very nice A-frame. Nice dog.

  • Avatar Nanny M November 23, 2015, 9:19 am

    First A-frame I’ve seen that feels livable to me. Nice work!

  • Avatar Susanne November 25, 2015, 7:22 am

    It’s wonderful…with clothes upstairs exposed is messy, though,; clutter and mess so much worse in a small space… Would be nice to be able to fix that ..
    I agree about the dog-so many people want big dogs in small places!!!! Get a Yorkie!!!! ????
