Yoga Teacher’s Modern, Off-Grid Crete Tiny House on Wheels

This is a yoga teacher’s modern, off-grid Crete tiny house on wheels by Echo Living in Scotland.

From the outside, it hardly even looks like it’s on wheels anymore after it’s been set up on site in Crete, Greece.

When you go inside, you’ll find a kitchenette, living area with fireplace, reading nook, shelving, floor-to-ceiling windows, a separate bathroom, and more! Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    This is stunning! I will investigate further how they got that to fit on wheels, and if it ever could be moved again. It’s looking very permanent, though.
    I love the idea of a separate bath house. My neighbor has one, but our climate is not as lovely as that of Greece. lol I’d love to trade places with her for a week or two, nonetheless.

    Ah, it seems obvious when looking at the site:
    “The building was designed to fit its site with minimal environmental impact and to satisfy local planning requirement that stipulated that the building should be on wheels. Measurements were taken to plot the position of the ancient trees, and the little cabin was designed to sit between them, and also to fit the dimensions of a single lorry for the trip to Crete.”
    Now, that’s where we all should move. I’ve never heard of any other place requiring the building to be on wheels. Amazing!

    Love many things about this. It’s bright, sunny, and has a view of the sea (or so we’re told – photographers rarely think to turn around and take a picture of the view on these tiny house shoots). I am glad to hear the owner put so much effort into trying to design it so that some ancient olive trees might be preserved. I’m also thrilled to think that someone could afford this on a yoga teacher’s income!

    I’m a little confused by what I’m looking at, however, even with the help of a floorplan and further explanations on the builder’s website. I’m guessing that the angled part of the structure is rigid and was built that way specifically to accommodate the trees on the site, and not some sort of clever “pivoting” mechanism, as the wheels on this TH are only there to satisfy local building code, not because anyone expects to move this house again. But it does make the photos confusing – which part of the house am I looking at? Where is the eating space in relation to the kitchen? Or the kitchen to the living area? I guess I need to look harder at the pictures and compare them to the floorplan, because while it’s beautiful, I feel a little like someone in a fugue state who can’t quite find their bearings. I think having so many surfaces – walls, floor, tables, etc. – made of exactly the same material makes differentiating anything a little more difficult.

    Having the bathroom separate from the rest of the structure is fine, but I believe I’d like to enclose that walkway. Even in Greece the weather isn’t always benign!

      Deadrock, you’re not the only one confused by the pictures. The floorplan helps somewhat, but… and it almost looks like the house was made of two shipping containers, one for the main house and the other sliced up for the bathroom and ‘extra’ chunk. Or maybe that diagonal bumpout was an add-on. Either way, I’d like to see more. I don’t usually like modern but this works for me. And would someone please discuss the hows and wherefore’s of the utility usage? I want off grid as much as possible, servicing only a laptop, a few lights, low powered refrigeration, with propane for cooking and hot water and a small fire for heat when necessary (Mediterranean climate much like Crete); and please tell us what brand of firebox that is!

        Ah, should have read at the website before posting – Salamander stove and 12v everything seems to do the trick!

  • Susanne December 2, 2015, 7:30 pm

    Is that bedroom section a slide out? If so, that is genius!!

  • Robin Hollenbeck December 13, 2015, 10:07 pm

    Definitely a bespoke wonder!
    Susanna is correct, “Genius”! A set of three puzzle pieces. Think of a box, inside a small suitcase, inside of a large suitcase. First, the box to be pulled out, which is the bath house unit. Second, the small suitcase, which is the raised level bedroom tip-out. Leaving the main house.
    That explains why Eco Living sent someone with the shipment. A ‘working’ vacation!
    Beautiful.
