This is a Shepherd Hut Tiny House by Güte in Ontario, Canada.

The hut has a comfy L-shaped sitting area that converts into a double bed, a clever folding desk & kitchen table, a small murphy bed for a single person or child, and some storage space for blankets, pillows, cups, plates, etc. It also has space to mount a tv, as well as hooks on the wall for storing folding chairs out of the way.

The design includes a unique half-round bump-out on one end that provides extra living space inside, without increasing the square footage of the structure on the outside.

Every part of these huts is custom made, including the structure itself, the furniture, the doors, and the window frames; and the pair make a huge effort to source their materials and labor locally for things like milling wood and casting iron.

This is the beautiful Collinwood Micro Cabin by Gute.

From the outside, you’ll notice this little shelter has a funky oblong shape with horizontal board and batten siding and a shingled roof that drapes down the sides of the camper. There are wonderful wrought iron wheels under the body which make it look like something from Cinderella, doesn’t it?

When you go inside, you’ll find a crisp, clean home with beautiful pine boards on the ceiling and floor. The dinette on one side turns into a queen-size bed and across the way is a built-in bunk bed. It includes thermal paned windows, three of which open and one that is a fixed octagon window as well as a solid oak dutch door.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

Güte is a tiny house builder in Maxwell, Ontario, Canada specializing in slightly modernized shepherd huts to meet the needs of today’s tiny house enthusiasts.

And, of course, you don’t have to live tiny full-time to enjoy one. Some people just want some extra space in their backyard.

Others might want to create a tiny guest house they can occasionally rent out or let their friends and family stay in while visiting.

But many of us are looking for full time tiny homes so we can live simply, inexpensively, and deliberately create a more enjoyable way of living. That’s why I love small spaces.
