Hey, I’ve been a lurker of your blog for ages and recently expatriated from Seattle to Germany (where the tiny houses seem to come in droves). I just got back from a vacation in Denmark and got some great “Tiny House in a Landscape” type photos that I couldn’t wait to share with you.
The first photo is my favorite, although it is almost difficult to spot the house, it’s so tiny. It was taken from a castle ruin, a little bit of which you can see in the foreground. Enjoy! And thank you for running such an excellent blog! -Isabelle Lafreniere
The exciting tale of the ClickClackGorilla begins with a daring escape from a cubicle life in the U.S. and ends with a life of traveling with a band, Dumpster diving, and living in a rescued caravan in a wagenplatz in Germany.

Her wagon, affectionately called the trash house, is parked in a wagenplatz, an intentional community in which people live together on a piece of land in a variety of wheeled dwellings.

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a photo taken by my son on a high school trip to Europe a couple of years ago. This photograph was taken somewhere in Bavaria, in southern Germany.
Ted travelled mainly by train so was not always able to get close to his subjects. He however spotted this and saw a beautiful landscape. I personally spotted the little structure that may be a tiny home or workshop. There is a light on so someone is inside enjoying the shelter and warmth of this tiny structure.
