Multi-functional Viking 1 Tiny House by Voyager Houses


We showed off the “Hubble House” from Voyager Houses yesterday, and today we want to show you one of their THOWs. This is the Viking 1, which is a 21-foot-long tiny home on wheels with *no loft.* Instead, there’s a ground-floor bed that’s slightly elevated to allow for a really neat couch-to-bed system underneath that doubles as storage. You’ll have to check out the pictures below.

Additionally, you’ll find a compact L-shaped kitchen and a 3/4 bathroom with a washer/dryer combo. The walls are all Nordic Pine, and it’s insulated with wool insulation, which is eco-friendly and extra cozy. Let us know what you think!

    Pretty good but no bedroom storage? Anything under the bed? How about above the washer unit and an upper corner cabinet in the kitchen would be more accessible – the couch/bed is good but where does the table go when not in use? No place for laundry/cleaning supplies unless bathroom vanity is used. This is ok for very short term use but can’t see living there.

      The whole bed area is storage. The steps have storage, the area at the foot of the bed, behind the steps has an access panel you can lift… The trundle bed is split and both halves are pull out storage, and the table folds against the wall, it’s the “Get You There” wall art…

      While you can’t really put anything over the water heater above the washer/dryer…

      But people in Europe generally don’t need a lot and according to Eurostat, Romania, which is where this company is located, has the smallest average house size within the EU, only 44.3 square meters (~477 Sq Ft); even Latvia, the second to last in this category, has a significantly higher average, 70.9 square meters (~763 Sq Ft). This number in Bulgaria is 76.3 square meters (~821 Sq Ft), while the biggest homes can be found in Malta, where the average size is 160 square meters (~1722 Sq Ft).

      Even in the UK house size is relatively small at 76 square meters (818 Sq Ft) and people living in apartments are used to even less space there…

    It is cute, I think I would either, put bunk beds in, or a single, then there would be storage.

    I do not get, why companies have to call things viking this or that. There is nothing which remotely resembles anything from the vikings about this house.

      Though I do like this house. I would put in a frontloader washing machine instead, to be able to use the space above the machine. Craftsmanship is good.

      Like many things, it’s not that simple. Names often have had different meanings over time. For instance, the word meat has not always been used to describe animal flesh, but it was once used to describe all solid food, including vegetables.

      Viking is one of those terms who’s meaning has changed. Originally being a descriptive that in simplest terms meant explorer. Along with being linked to activities like being pirate, or freebooter, with related descriptive meanings like seafarer, etc. All of which essentially described what they did rather than what they called themselves.

      So it’s only modern usage of the word viking(s) that has taken the word and applied it generically to just about everything related to the people, their culture, etc. from that time period but the original meaning is still understood and thus why it often gets used in that context, like the NASA Viking 1 and 2 Mars probes.

      While this company has literally named itself Voyager, yet another name linked to exploration. So it actually makes perfect sense for them to call one of their models, made for going on trips, a name related to exploring and what their clients do from there is their business…

        Do not try to come up with all sorts of made up explanations about the term viking. You are talking to a Dane, who actually knows about our history. It does not mean explorer – and never has meant explorer. Vík means a small, narrow bay – In Danish the word is still used and is called Vig. It originates from the word Víkin from the old nordic language, which is an actual area in Norway. It literrally means a person from Viken. And it has also been used as a maritime distance – a vika was a Nautic mile. The Anglo-Saxon word “wicing” was used for the first time, in the poem “Widsith”, and dates from the ninth century. It referred to Scandinavian pirates or robbers.

          Sorry but I never make anything up and I already know all of that… People just tend to look at the past through the lens of their current cultural values, beliefs, and expectations, which is the mistake you’re making.

          So it is essential to remember that in your ancestors’ times many of the ideals, concepts, and information we now take for granted had not developed yet. Early medieval Scandinavian peoples had no overarching name for themselves. They did not think that way. Instead, they identified themselves by family, clan, and tribal loyalties.

          Vikings were also from Sweden, Denmark, and numerous other places. So there are many places in Scandinavia that has Vik in the name, it’s just more common in Norway. Besides, villages, regions, and municipalities with the name Vik, there are also rivers and inlets with the name. You just need to look at a map of Norway and you will see the name again and again. Towns and Villages with the name Vik can also be found on Iceland, which is an island in the North Atlantic ocean that was settled by the Vikings.

          So the “Vík region” theory you’re referring is actually not something everyone agrees is accurate.

          While you’re forgetting grammatical rules that words change meaning depending on how they’re used in a sentence, etc. and that’s basically the point your missing. Respected researchers like Dr. Jacqueline Simpson have gone in depth on the subject on all the lore, history, and culture of what details we know from the time period and is one of the reasons Vikings are associated with pirate, freebooter, etc. There’s a whole series of books on the subject…

          You’re also forgetting how people viewed and romanticized that time period. Especially, during the 18th century when that era was first re-evaluated and appreciated. So there’s also what Vikings are most associated with doing, even if that didn’t include all of them…

          Fact remains, there’s a long history of the name Viking used to name exploration vehicles, etc. Regardless of whether you want to believe the rest that much is indisputable!

          There’s the NASA example I already gave, along with other examples like the Viking series of rockets. There’s companies like Viking Cruises and you can go to their website where they discuss the history of exploration and the many types of boats they manufacture. There’s military fully-amphibious vehicles named Viking. While, of course, there’s RV’s/Caravans that are also named Viking, and of course the fact Vikings did explore much of the world and that’s part of their legacy…

        James, you are a classic example of the Dunning Kruger effect.

          No, it’s never about ego with me and I’m well aware of my ability and limitations. I just don’t confuse opinions with facts. Nor do I assume I’m always right, my responses are just well researched and always based on the facts. While I don’t comment on things I haven’t researched and I recognize those who have a greater knowledge in any specific subject.

          For example, the commentator that went by “Bigfoot” was much more knowledgeable than me about trucks and towing and there have been other commentators who have shown greater knowledge on agriculture, as another example.

          My adherence to the facts just sometimes rubs people the wrong way but I always seek the truth, even if that ends up with me having to correct myself.

          Respectfully, you have a good day…

    The person who posts this article for US readers could’ve easily changed those meters to feet instead of making readers find an online converter to figure it out. Drives me crazy! I don’t bother to look it up anymore. I don’t know why the US doesn’t use the same metric system as the rest of the world, who started that, the Colonies? I’m way too old to learn it. — The metric system is the most used measurement system in the world. Only three countries in the world don’t use the metric system: the United States, Liberia, and Myanmar. Every other country around the world uses the metric system. Rant over. — The tiny house is nice but I don’t get why not save tons of money and just buy an RV. I’m a tiny house fan where tiny houses are built on the ground like other houses. Who can afford the gas now to haul those heavy tiny houses around anyway?

    Nice clean design. Very livable. Love that guest bed is part of the versatility. I could happily live in this! Plenty of very accessible storage, if you ask me!
