Tiny Houses for St. Nick

The big guy from the North Pole might not fit inside this tiny house, but it makes for a cute addition to the Christmas Tree Village shopping center in Incline Village on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. The Christmas Tree Village has been at the lake since the 1970s and this little house has been a popular photo stop ever since.

The Christmas themed house was originally built as a place for children to come during the holidays to have their photo taken with Santa Claus, and as place to hold parties for the local vendors. Now the tiny house is a mechanical room for the hydronic heating system that runs underneath the parking lot of the shopping center to keep it free of ice and snow.

Maybe Mr. Claus might find a little more room at the St. Nick’s cabin at Sorenson’s Resort instead… 🙂

  1. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly small footprint of the building. I know; I’ve been to Santa’s place.

    The guy really knows how to utilize his space.

    When you enter, you’ll see that it is actually about 8400 square feet, and has five bedrooms. Then, there’s a tunnel toward the back of the house leading to the shop/warehouse, which is about 1.2 million square feet (the new addition has been postponed until the economy clears up).
