Opera Singer Includes Grand Piano in his 269 Sq. Ft. Home

This is an opera singer’s 269 sq. ft. tiny home that includes a grand piano inside.

It’s located in Sweden and also has an additional 86 sq. ft. loft. According to one of our readers, Karin Johansson, the home was purchased for 1,200,000 SEK which translates to about $135,000 in USD a few months ago. It’s said to now be worth $200,000 USD!

In Sweden this is a new house category, like an ADU, and they’re called “Attefallshus” (after the politician Stefan Attefall). It may not be over 25 square meters (269 sqf), and not over 4 meter high (13 feet).

      I thought the point of Tiny houses is mainly cost and now I increasingly see tiny homes going for huge prices which are just edging ordinary people into total homelessness. It make me sick to see such places!

        This is reflective of standard costs in Sweden, one of the reasons housing is much smaller on average, with less square footage, than comparable housing in the U.S.

        No one is forced into homelessness because of housing costs – rather it is usually a combinations of things, along with a series of choices that get a person there. Getting people off drugs/alcohol and getting them mental health treatment often is the first step in the road to independence.

          Having been hit with the recession and 3 mass lay-offs in those years I was living in my car for a while. There are many, many people still disenfranchised because of this. I met MANY people who were still working and frankly, with zero help, it’s much harder to get back into a ‘normal’ life. My ‘neighbor’ was a biochemical Ph.d. Please don’t categorize the homeless as only addicts or mentally ill.

        Hello Denise,
        While homelessness can be caused by drugs and alcohol, there are natural disasters that require emergency shelter as part of a disaster relief plan. Transitional housing is also needed for situations of unexpected loss, such as a job, divorce, recessions as in 2007 where tent cities in California were quite common. Those who have it good need to remember we all are one heart attack, one accident, one dissolved relationship, one natural disaster from being humbled.

      You are correct, the ridiculous prices for units offered by profiteers who would never live in them has diminished the meaning behind the minimalist movement. In some cases the builders live in very big homes where only two people occupy it and they call it an energy efficient home, which in reality is a burden to the utility grid as they hoard the majority of the communities energy and water resources. My advice to everyone is “Don’t buy a tiny home from a builder who doesn’t live in one, they haven’t felt the pain and they really could care less.

    this is fabulous for a permanent location. real stairs to bedroom. modern kitchen and bath.

    To paraphrase Oliver Twist, “More (pictures) please.” Thanks for sharing this.

    Great little bachelor pad!! Would be nice to see more.

    No, it is NOT an electronic piano. Doesn’t even look like one. It is in fact a Yamaha baby grand piano that has been installed on a slight angle to the wall to maximise floor space.

    • Jeff October 23, 2017, 8:51 pm

      Sure looks like a Yamaha Digital piano…even the smallest baby grand probably wouldn’t fit there…

  • Elizabeth Rubio November 30, 2015, 1:35 pm

    I like it very much. In reference to the piano, I believe a set of headphones is hanging from the keyboard; it may be digitalized so that it can be played acoustically or electronically; I don’t know. Somebody inform me, please.

    Superb architectural concepts, the steps are just correctly placed,
    A sense of luxury in this small space. White is the right treatment here, I must appload the designer.

    Very nice. I can envision myself living here.
    I know where I can get land. I just wonder if strong wind
    would destroy everything.

  • Arlene McCormick October 23, 2017, 6:39 pm

    This is nice, I think. Hard to tell when there is only 2 pics. I wish there was more to see.
