In this episode, we will see a Scandinavian-Style Off-grid Tiny house in Canada.
It feels really spacious and really functional on the inside but it’s actually a pretty small tiny house.
It’s only 250 square feet including the loft upstairs the house is built to be fully off-grid with a solar panel gray water tank propane and wood stove but it can also be connected to the grid.
Kate and Simon built this 250-square-foot off-grid Scandinavian-style tiny house as a cottage and have since started building tiny houses as a family business.
This tiny house is 8.5 feet wide, 13 feet tall, and 20 feet long. It’s been designed to be fully off-grid with a solar panel and 12-volt battery bank for power, propane for the stove and water heater, and a cubic mini wood stove for heat.
Inside this Tiny House
We love all the space-saving furniture they custom-designed for their tiny house and all the thought that went into making it a functional space for the couple and their young son.
This is the custom sofa that we built, we have a piece of wood that’s hidden behind the sofa that we can take out and we have extra cushions that are hidden under here and we just have to pull out so we get a next-row double bed for visitors here.
we have the little table that we bought that gives us quite a lot of possibilities we can pull it out here close to the window so that we have a little breakfast mistral table.
You have also a little custom bench and it goes over the wheel, so this is a nice little spot for a couple.
We opted for a real wood stove just for its nice little cottage feel of it so we have smart logs here that we can break even with our hands to make even fit in the stove.
The Kitchen of this Tiny House
The kitchen is massive with loads of storage space and countertops, and they did it without overhead cabinets, giving the space a nice open-concept feel.
This is pretty nice because we have an L design so on this side we have a regular-sized both sigh storage right to the back a regular little fridge.
We took a real gas stove that we put directly on the counter so we can cook and bake just like in the normal house and so we have storage here for all pots and pans.
This loft is quite spacious and can accommodate a queen-sized bed, and also has built-in storage and night tables, as well as a window for ventilation.
We wanted one that was kind of a bridge between a staircase and a ladder so we have real steps here but it’s still that kind of ladder feel.
And the fact that we see through every step really gives that open feel in the house we added a queen-size mattress up here and we have also the window that gives a fresh breeze during the night.
In the bathroom, they have a 30x30 inch shower, a dry bucket-style toilet, and they have a grey water tank. It’s pretty small but very functional.
With the sliding patio doors leading onto a spacious deck, this tiny house merges indoor and outdoor living spaces seamlessly.
My favorite part of the tiny house is really the kind of cozy feel my favorite season to come is really in the winter there’s something of being in this small space.
And having quite a bit of window around and when you see like the snow the coal and you’re in this kind of little bubble of heat and warmth and it’s really cozy.
