A tiny cottage on a tiny island in Karlholm bay on the Baltic Sea in Sweden received a makeover in 1975 and the results were definitely worthy of sharing! The home now has two wings for a total of 592 square feet and an overall bird-like appearance. The home also has an expansive deck with multiple areas for seating and dining. The best part about this house is that it’s off-grid and currently for sale for $200,000!
Inside, the home has whitewashed shiplap walls with natural wood ceilings and heavy exposed beams. A round window adds a fun architectural element to the home and lets natural light flood in as do the over-sized windows and doors that overlook the bay. The living area has room for plenty of furniture and a small nook on the side holds a dining table with room for four.
The home was made to be off-grid by necessity due to the island not having any utility services available. It now has a small solar system which powers the lights and refrigerator and a stove in the living room which keeps the house warm.
The kitchen has a compact refrigerator and a gas cooktop with deep drawers for storage.
The home has two small bedrooms in one of the wings that were added to the home in 1975. This room has a full-sized bed as well as a dresser for clothing storage.
The other bedroom was given bunk bed with trundle storage and a bright green dresser.
If you need even more room to spread out it, the home has a small guest cottage out back with an additional bunkroom and the home’s only bathroom which has a composting toilet.
This is not just another bed you rest in overnight. It is a dazzling experience! Superhost Gabriella will amaze you with her cozy tiny house.
