Tiny House Directory of Europe

The Tiny House Blog tends to cover North America with only a few posts covering Europe, Australia and a few other places. I was recently contacted by a reader in Europe asking if I could pull together a directory of tiny home builders in Europe. I currently have a short list, but would really like to expand and make a directory that our European friends would find useful as they move to join us by downsizing and simplifying their lives.

I need your help with this project. If you know of or own a company that builds tiny houses or small buildings in Europe please write the company name and link below in the comment section. I will then assemble all the information into a directory and make it available to anyone wishing to know.

Thank you for your participation in this and have a great day. —Kent

Austrian company that makes wooden structures from garden sheds to average-sized houses. The link I provided is for houses between 20 and 50 m² (about 215-538 sq ft.)

In Austria, many cities have small plots of land on the outskirts where you can build tiny houses – mostly for weekend use, but some developments are specifically named “small garden developments for year-round living”. There are strict specifications for maximum size (area, height and volume) of the structures – in some places the limit is 35 m² (376 sq ft) plus loft area, and in others you can build almost normal-sized houses (50 m² plus second floor with slightly lower ceiling height than in regular houses, and the max. volume may require smaller upstairs rooms as well.) That is why a lot of Austrian small house companies sell houses close to 35m² or 50m², and not much in between (and not really in the “tiny” category).

I love the train car look for a home… The other two pictured are a bit too European for me! Glad to hear that you are making an impact worldwide now! Congrats!

Hi Kent,
I have followed your blog for years now and really enjoy it! We live in W.MA and I wonder if you have a New England or Northeastern (New England plus NY, NJ, PA, and so forth) directory. I looked in the Tiny House Directory but saw little in this region. Please let me know if you want help.

    Hi Louise, I really need to update the directory and would appreciate any help you could give. I really should have it set up for each region, country, etc. Thank you for your help! -Kent

I found this site surfing the web thought you might like it.

In the french speaking side of Europe search for Cabane, you’ll find quite a lot of interesting projects.
