Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is from Ottsjö county of Jämtland, Sweden. The house is all natural except for the glass in the window. I really like the stone fireplace and natural green roof.

The squared off logs are neat also and make the little cabin fit into the landscape beautifully. The photo was taken by Erik Sundström not to far from his home.

The only problem with a house that blends into the landscape is finding your way home again after too much akvavit at the neighbours!

Super neat, though I have never understood how these Scandinavian sod roofs keep from rotting the wood out from underneath them…

    A little late on the post but…

    I was reading about the earth bermed sod houses in Iceland that are hundreds of years old. They used birch bark as a lining for the sod roofs as it is waterproof. I bet that is what was used here too.

I’m looking at the ‘green’ roof and I see quite a few little fir saplings/striplings (what do you call those first year starts??) coming up… mayhap the roof needs to be MOWED? 😉

But a really sweet looking little house pic, all the same.

Ah, so gorgeous! How is the roof put together (does it leak)?

From another age. The age without iphones, turbochargers, keyless entry systems, glass fiber composite, microwaves… Nada!
