Because of the lack of space in a tiny house, a separate bathhouse can be built nearby to hold a bathing area, hot tub or sauna.
This is not only for necessity, but as a tranquil space for relaxation. On my search for tiny bathhouses I kept running into these examples built from natural materials that I thought looked so beautiful in their environments.
One of my favorites was this cob bathhouse and its accompanying yurt created by Oasis Design.
Oasis Design is a family owned, home-based design consulting and publishing business near Santa Barbara. They’ve been developing original designs for living better, cheaper, and more ecologically since 1980. Their focus is mostly on water, wastewater and energy systems.
This bathhouse at the Chinati Hot Springs in Marfa, Texas is made of adobe and dates back to the 1930s.
And this bathhouse has a living roof and is located at the Center for Whole Communities in Fayston, Vermont.
A natural bathhouse can be a celebration of tranquility and privacy, but also can make us more aware of where our water is coming from or where it should be going.
