Norske Mikrohus Norwegian Tiny Home Builder


This is Norske Mikrohus (@norske_mikrohus on Instagram), a Norwegian tiny home builder and their tiny houses on wheels. I first learned about them when Natalie introduced us to Ida and her incredible tiny house on a Norwegian farm in this post.

Well, right now, I’d like to tell you a little bit about the builder who helped make her tiny house fairytale possible. The company currently offers two models, one is 7.5 meters (24.6-ft.) long and 2.5 meters (8.2-ft.) wide (22 m2 incl. loft, 237-sq.-ft.) and the other is 6.5 meters (21.3-ft.) long and 2.5 meters wide (19.5 m2 inc. loft, 210-sq.-ft.). One starts at 890,000 Krones, and the other at 930,000 (approximately $96,000 USD, and $100,402 USD, respectively).

Norwegian Tiny Home Builder: Norske Mikrohus and their Tiny Homes on Wheels


Right now they offer two models, one is approximately 24-ft, and the other is about 21-ft.

But you might notice that each of their tiny house builds looks a little bit different.

With different stain and finishing options, that’s just how it ends up happening!

These tiny houses on wheels are beautiful, aren’t they?

Inside, I think you’ll find them to be just as nice.

They do beautiful interiors. I love the dish and towel rack in the kitchen here.

Beautiful built-in daybed with lovely pillows.

 

Built-in storage nooks like these are always nice.

Easy ways to plug in your smart phone can be nice, too.

Another exterior finishing option…

Lots of cabinet storage.

A slightly different look and feel here.

Which is your favorite style?

Yes, we can put that tiny house back there for you.

    They are nice for what they are except terribly expensive if exactly what interior you want. Much better would be 10’/3m wide open plan version so the customer can use standard furniture and change it as needed and easier to sell. As a wood guy I lust for the resources they have as yellow pine is all we get here.
    At this price it should have a wind or solar system.
    This allows different functions on each side allowing easy ground floor sleeping.
    It’s easy, cheap to have a 10′ wide moved, most any tow truck will at slack times give you a nice rate. Or a $10?/yr permit to tow it yourself within a state.
    My plan is building, selling THs that don’t need the grid, water or sewage hookups , light EV + trailer , solar here in Florida ones this size for $40k and at a nice profit for the poor, smart.. So you see why I think their prices are high.

      You are basing all of your comments on an American viewpoint & roads, statutes, etc – problem is, this company & these trailers are in Norway. The prices include Norwegian GST, which is 25% tax rate on these tiny houses (type of commodity determines applicable tax rate), so just the government tax amount on each is 178,000KR or 186,000KR – $19,064 or $20,025, respectively. And again, that tax is already included in the prices. Still fairly expensive by our American standards, but you cannot compare pricing between us and Europe; too much stuff is completely different, apples & oranges.

        Last I checked this was a N. American list and most people here are too so comments should follow NA prices, viewpoints , info they can use. And even with 25% taxes it is still high priced.

          There are hundreds of articles on this very website from countries all over the world and readers all over the world, not just in the US. None of the pricing info on them is useful to North American readership, so I guess you’d better tell the admins to remove every non-American build just to please you. /sarcasm

          I do try my best to make price conversions to USD for our American readers, but if they’re missing you can Google “[1,000] EUR to USD” and get the current conversion rate in real time. Also keep in mind that conversion rates ebb and flow, so even if we do translate the price to USD it could change depending on the world market.

    Just need a piece of commercial property in St Pete to build them on. And a lot seems to be opening up hopefully a reasonable prices.!

    With no appliances, whatsoever and some other minimal space (no stair storage?), washer/dryer, limited counter space, pantry, etc. Seems like the price is pretty high for not much.

    Basically everything built in other countries but especially Baltic, Europe and Canada are almost double US prices. That is the difference in pricing and cost of living between the countries. It is a reasonable price for Europe and similar to Canada if the options (excluding appliances) were included.

      Yup… you don’t wanna come to New Zealand. Oh right, you can’t right now anyway… but I digress. Average house price is… about $NZ 600,000. In US terms that’s about $US 395.000

      Perspective? 2 litres of milk (roughly 4 1/4 pints) costs between $3.50 and $4.50. That equates to between US 2.25 and 2.90

      Cost of living varies between countries. Who woulda thunk huh?

    Sorry, to me part of the reason for getting a tiny house is to save money on purchasing a home so these tout of the question. American or European makes no difference. I payed $6000 for the 60 ft x 14 ft mobile home I live in and $12,000 for the 8 acres of land it sits on. Taxes are about $1200 annually and utilities average about $100 a month. So I see no reason to pay the cost for something that will fit in my living room

      Reasons depend on what someone is looking for in a home and what they can actually get depending on their location and situation…

      Thing to keep in mind is that it isn’t always simple for everyone and what someone is looking for can be very complicated to provide. Since homes are not all equal, what the home actually provides can be very different besides just its size, like how easily it can keep you comfortable, how well does it handle climate and weather extremes where you choose to live, how much maintenance it requires as well as how long it’ll last, does it allow you to have the lifestyle you want to have or do you instead have to adapt your life around its limitations, will it be adaptable to changing needs or not, will it be a home you actually enjoy living in, will it be healthy to live in for someone who may have to deal with chemical sensitivity or other issues, etc.

      There are always trade offs, but this includes different kinds of benefits like moveable homes can also cater to needs and lifestyles that most other homes do not. Like being able to have a nomadic lifestyle, being able to move a home away from danger like a forest fire or major storm, being able to take the home with you rather than sell it when moving, etc. While homes on foundation offer more permanence, can be much larger, naturally tied to land and other options. New homes can be custom built and optimized for the owner while older homes can be depreciated and more easily affordable… Among many other ways homes can differ…

      While, also keep in mind that not everyone wants the same home or to live the same lifestyle, along with how people can have very different options depending on location and their situation. So what works and what people can be looking for in a home typically involves more considerations than just how much space it has and different people will often prioritize different things, which can mean what works best for different people can be up to completely different types of homes…

      Even in terms of cost it’s not always simple, as the long term costs can add up to multiple times the purchase cost of the home over the years. Especially, as homes typically have up to thousands in hidden costs in addition to the normal cost of living. So saving on the purchase cost may make sense in the short term but in the long term you could still end up paying far more versus something that may have a higher purchase cost but has much lower long term costs. But that only matter if you live in the home for a few decades to actually see that difference…

      In the end, people do what works for them and that just won’t be the same for everyone…

    Norway is well known for high prices and taxes. They have plenty of wood but not to much other stuff. Everything imported costs usually more.

      You’re kidding right? Lots of wood and not much other stuff? Maybe you need to educate yourself about the rest of the world a bit more. Yes high taxes. Can say the same about New Zealand too. Not as high as Norway but still. But what do those taxes get you? A social welfare system so you don’t have hordes of homeless people on the streets like the US. A health system where you don’t pay gazillions of dollars for medical care. A police force that doesn’t go around shooting people as a matter of course… on the whole those on the beat here (is that a term in the US?) do not carry a firearm on their person. I know a senior officer who was sent to the US for some reason (I forget what) and US Police officers were gobsmacked to learn that. They simply couldn’t comprehend it at all.

        Don’t believe everything you hear on the media outlets, lots of politics and agendas. Actual statistics tells a very different story but very few ever refer to them because it doesn’t help their agenda…
