There is always a new idea behind a tiny house we come across. Some thrive on the use of material, some on the number of people it can accommodate. However, designing to create spaciousness within a compact timber project is what really gets me intrigued. This is why the Sunshine tiny house designed and sold by Sweden-based Vagabond Haven is the subject of discussion.
The ready-to-move-in tiny house on wheels is finished in a choice of Spruce, ThermoWood, Shou sugi ban or cedar siding. Made compact and lightweight to be pulled behind a car, the tiny house can even be finished precisely according to how you want it.
Designer: Vagabond Haven
As important as it is for a tiny house to be accommodating on the inside, it is vital to be prepared for year-round living. This is the ethos of the Sunshine which measures 6.7m long and 2.55m wide. The little but spacious tiny house offers 21sqm of living space along with a loft bedroom, functional kitchen, bathroom, and convertible sofa for additional sleeping space. The tiny house’s exterior embraces traditional essence with a gabled roof made from lightweight and durable aluminum. The contraption on wheels can be towed behind a car at 80 km/h with utmost convenience.
While the exterior is traditional, the minimalistic interior is enhanced with the flow of natural light through the nicely insulated windows and glass door all finished with tempered glass. True to the house’s name, the Sunshine’s radiant interiors make provision for storage under the staircase leading to the solitary loft bedroom. You enter the house in the living room, which leads you to a furnished open kitchen and a bathroom alongside. A Sunshine with electricity, plumbing, and ventilation is available for €38,700 ($39,000) while a fully-furnished model designed to run off-the-grid with its own renewable power and water spikes the price point significantly.
Customers can choose to have the build customized to their wishes. The Sunshine tiny house allows you to add kitchen, bathroom, furnishing, heating and other tailored finishes to an unfurnished model. You can also choose from two-floor plans and have the choice to select colors, off-grid options, and sustainable construction materials.
