This is a minimalist tiny cabin in Norway.
From the outside, you’ll see it’s a bare-bones cabin with a small surrounding deck.
When you go inside, you’ll find a kitchenette, fireplace, and a living area with a collapsible bench, bed, and table. Super simple, and super awesome, isn’t it?
And yes, you can even book a stay in this tiny cabin to try out the simple life if you want to. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

Watch the newly released movie “Room” and discover how a young woman and her 5 year old son manage to live in a 120 sq ft shed. Amazing layout. Worth the watch. I think I’m going to build one like that but with extra locks.
I just watched “Room” on dvd Monday night. The shed was giving me claustrophobia. Maybe it was the fact that they couldn’t get out, or because there were no windows, only the skylight.
Ok, but I would absolutely need a toilet! I could manage to wash at the basin, but would not want to go outside for my toileting needs!! It rains a lot in Norway all year round – plus snow in winter. I went to Norway in late July and wore a cagoule most days! Lots of Norwegian families have small holiday cabins in the mountains. I had presumed they had some sort of toilets inside…..maybe not! The scenery in the areas we visited was amazing and the house we stayed in had indoor bathrooms 🙂
It’s easy enough to use an outdoor toilet during the day and you can have a spare sawdust bucket toilet indoors or just outside the door at night. If it’s cold you can bring it inside to use then put it outside again. A Styrofoam seat is a wonderful thing for cold weather. For added privacy you can use a pop-up changing tent inside or out. Really, it’s not that big a deal to live without a “real” toilet. (Barring medical issues.)
Yes, minimalist. I could use this as a little retreat during warmer months, but it looks a bit too primitive (for me) to stay in during colder weather.
Thank you, Alex, for posting such a delightful retreat. Let me add mine to the comments about toileting. I expect there is an outhouse nearby, perhaps even a sauna. I remember an old family (true) story about my mother’s cousin falling through the hole in her family’s outhouse when she was two. This was in the early 192o’s when an outhouse was a familiar structure on many a Minnesota prairie farm. And Minnesota rivals Norway for COLD. Why did so many Norwegians and Swedes settle in Minnesota? Because it was so much like the home they had left!
The northern european immigrants moved to Minnesota for cheap land at that moment in time, not because of similarities to scandinavia. My great grandfather was Danish and he came to Chicago in the 1850s and bought and worked a dairy farm for the growing city. then sold up and bought lots of land at a chepa price from the Bulington Northern railroad in Minnesota. They were still lynching the Chippewa indians, who wanted to hunt on the lands they had always hunted on, in the late 1850’s.
The rugged outdoor lifestyle which includes an outhouse or a “composting” toilet or a bucket is probably not the best choice for the aged. The advocate for these non-flush toilet solutions has probably never had an outhouse as the only bathroom, for an extended period. Camping does not have the same issues as full time living. I can assure you that even as a youngster, I disliked a privy, summer or winter.
Some of these tiny houses on this sight to my taste are not tiny houses, they are versions of 1940’s mobile homes or park models sin today’s jargon. From my age and vantage point a tiny house has a floor stud walls and rafters, that you don’t just hook up to and toddle down the road. That does not mean that some of these and not cleaver and tastefull’ they are and they are some thing you can own not a wannabe castle that is in vogue today, that you don’t own, it owns you. These tiny home are also lessons from George Carlins rant “Things”. Keep it up these ” tiny homes” are leasing in reality of what life is really all about.
What sort of wizardry is keeping that black pot on the ceiling?
Kevin, sorry….didn’t mean to hit “report”….me thinks that pot is just wedged in tightly by a small (barely perceiveable) ledge.
I really really like his tiny wood stove. I wonder if it’s a salvaged antique?
Ok… so I’ve decided to go tiny and simplify my life. And I do like to keep an open mind. However this has actually gone a little too basic! Nice for a short stay but maybe not for the long haul
It has to have been a year or longer since I first commented on this cabin. And it’s been a rough year… new boss, many new challenges… on going family issues! This little cabin on a acre or so in NC, TN, MT, or WY…. yep, it’s starting to look real good! Throw a little insulation up, add a composting toilet with that styrofoam seat someone mentioned, and add a comfortable chair by the fire… I may just be good to go!
Sorry about the rough year, Michael 🙁 It does look like a pretty cozy little spot with the right touches!
I really like this little cabin. The only thing that I would change is the couple of places where you can see plywood on the walls. I think it kind of takes away from the rustic feel, so I think I would cover it with some wood planks.
JC… if you look closely, the plywood on the wall disappears when the “furniture” is set up. Evidentially the table and cot frames are made with plywood. I think I agree with you that if they have to hang on the walls while not in use, make them out of planking so it blends with the walls. This place is really growing on me. I keep hearing the theme from the tv show Green Acres in my head!
I was thinking of building a small plank house. I was going to put cement ends in, 4 ‘ by b ‘ base (cause I don’t think that 3 ft would work. Install four 4 ” logs, standing up, so that I could slid in 2 planks about 2 inches by 10 – 14 ft and filling in between the planks with cement, thus, eliminating the need for insulation in the beginning and possibly adding stone on the outside ions later. Well, if I had to work alone, it sounded like an easy way to go but would it pass inspection….way in the woods somewhere? Thanks for sharing.
Those are some good ideas there!
I see he has his most important staples….wine and coffee!
Haha yes! So true.
This is the country that I love, certain solutions speak, they communicate, interact with us better than a cold and boring conventional dwelling
