Tiny House in a Landscape

Though not a tiny house, this church shows a unique design that could be customized as a tiny house.

Trinity Church is a 15m-high wooden structure built in traditional Russian style. It can accommodate up to 30 worshipers. The structure was built out of Siberian Pine by Altay carpenters. It was assembled on high ground near the sea shore on King George Island in the Antarctica. To learn more about it visit Wikipedia.

My son and I had a great time learning about this church when he was studying the continents. We looked at how our Orthodox church was represented on each continent and this was a great surprise.

Road-Side Chapels used to be quite common through-out the
country even into the 1960s. There are still a very few left, but
the proliferation of vandals in the generations starting with the
‘baby-boomers’ pretty much brought that era to an end.

I just saw this church two weeks ago in Antarctica! I
stayed at the Chilean research base and we walked to the church
which was originally assembled in Russia to make sure that
everything would come together, disassembled and then sent to King
George Island where it was re-assembled. The church uses no nails
and is truly a work of art!
