521 Sq. Ft. Small House Design: North West Territories

The Northwest Territories Small House Floor Plan

Small House Design: North West Territories by Robinson Residential

The Northwest Territories…..

In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, we have designed 13 new small homes, reflecting the distinct character of each of our provinces and territories. These unique homes range from 300-700 sq. ft. and are packed with innovative features and details.

The Northwest Territories along with the Yukon and Nunavut, form the three Territories that make up Canada’s north.  It is a land of extremes, with cold winters of total darkness to hot summer days where the sun sets just in time to come up again.  The diverse landscape ranges from boreal forest to tundra plains.

We have designed a compact house where the living space is very connected to this environment.  Life in this home becomes a backdrop to the ever changing landscape and sky with continuous bands of windows on both floors.  The main floor features a living room with a dining nook and wood stove, a kitchen and a efficient bathroom tucked under the stairs.  Upstairs the bedroom overlooks the living room and built in cabinets provide storage for clothes and a washer and dryer combo.   The exterior brings together the emphasized horizontal lines and sweeping rooflines of the Prairie Style, in a rustic composition of wood, stone, cement fiber and steel roofing.

What do you think? Could you live in a design like this? Would you build something like this?

      Chuck, sure… it’s not legal everywhere but there are places that have little to no zoning restrictions on size or the minimum may be just below the size of this house…

      Like in Idaho, it should be fine as long as it’s bigger than 150 sq ft… While you can always scale up the dimensions a bit if you need it to fit some higher minimums…

    I’m looking forward to seeing one of their designs actually built. They all look pretty nice.
