Stay in a Glass Tiny House (Just Don’t Throw Stones….)

The beautifully-built home sits nestled in the trees.

The exterior bathtub is just steps away from the sleeping area. The hot water is solar-powered so as long as there’s sun, there’s warm bath water!

If you do want added privacy, there are curtains to pull along the side windows.

Inside are lamps for adding a bit of light.

Everything looks so clean and well-cared-for.

Wow! Just look at the surroundings.

You’ll get lovely views of the stars at night from here.

Now that’s a place to drink your morning coffee!

Absolute immersion in nature, in a good way.

Here’s the flushing toilet and sink in the outhouse.

A luxurious outdoor shower with rainfall shower head.

Another view of the exterior bathtub.

Just a head’s up: You have to walk this bridge to get to the glass house. So if you’re afraid of heights like I am….

    This isn’t a tiny house. It’s a glass-walled sleeping area with outdoor amenities. With any luck, it won’t rain.

      It’s a greenhouse with a bed and lights to attract insects at night. It’s one step up from camping in a tent near a restroom. There is no kitchen and not for me, but if you like glamping, it could be fun for a night, until you see glowing red eyes outside the glass walls in the darkness just outside the range of your light and you have to pee…

      Actually, historically a house can be as minimal as three walls and a roof or as complex as multiple structures on the same property that work together. How people set up homes can be very diverse and not what you may be used to. Our modern society has just gotten us used to certain proprietary standards but they’re based on our existing technology and trying to force artificial conformity in a diverse culture, especially for high density apartment complexes.

      However, people going back to nature, being off-grid, etc. will tend to deviate from this present trend and return to some of the ways homes used to be designed before we had electrical appliances, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, consumerism, etc.

      People today tend to spend over 93% of their entire life indoors, but it wasn’t always that way… People used to have acreage to grow their own food, spent a lot more time with outdoor activities, took their time traveling, didn’t need a lot of possessions to live a good life, worked with nature to provide their needs, had a lot less stress, were far more independent, etc.

      The ways people can live can be extremely different and everything has trade offs. So it pays to remember it’s not one size fits all. Different solutions work for different people and that’s one of the points of the tiny house movement is people finding what works for them and that it doesn’t have to be generic and for everyone…

      For example, some people like watching the rain and can find the sound of it very comforting, along with having a clear view of nature… So, like many things, it depends on your preference if this works for you or not.

      Only if you’re adverse to the native climate, otherwise location has plenty of ventilation and shade…

    This is not located in any Remote Brazilian Forest!
    Most of the native forest has been cleared/removed in the past two hundred years. Despite this, the city in which the cabin is located, Alfredo Wagner, Santa Catarina state, is very beautiful and the region has remarkable natural beauty.
    BR,

      Thanks for that update, Carlos! Sorry for any misinformation — I was just basing it on the Airbnb description.
