This is Gøran Johansen’s tiny home in Norway that he built using 8 x 8 square logs.
We haven’t seen many homes built like that, so it’s pretty amazing! He documented the build on his Facebook page, but you can also read what he told us below the pictures and download the floor plans that he generously shared.

Yep, I’d move here for the mountains!
Love the tiny dog house!
How fun is that deck? Love seeing something different.
Metal roofs = Love
Now this is where I want to work from home!
What do you think of open shelving? I think I’m too messy!
Tiny window for a tiny space.
Oh that black flooring is different! Cool!
As long as there’s a washing machine, I’m pleased!

From the builder:
My name is Gøran Johansen and I have now lived in my tiny house for some months. I started planning the project with a colleague of mine a couple of years ago, to build to tiny houses in the center of a rural town in Norway, called Aurland.
I was going to build a new unit, from scratch, and she was going to build with reused materials and an old sleeping-barrack.
Both units are 10 by 26 feet, with a footprint of 258 square feet, and and interior space of 205.
I have used wooden logs, 8 inch by 8 inch, square not round and in a technique we call “alipplaft” here in Norway, where you have a vertical log in each corner, and then release the horizontal logs into a vertical slot.
I have no insulation in the walls, but 8 inch insulation in the floor and 10 inch in the roof, everything woodfiber insulation.
We are connected to the municpality with water and sanitation.
Because it is not allowed to build so small units according to regulations in Norway, this is a test-project, and the houses must be removed in two years. We are hoping to find a new, more permanent place here in Aurland within the lime-limit, and that we can find a solution to the rigid regulations on such tiny homes.
