    Love how fresh, clean and airy it looks! Would have been nice to have a kitchenette instead of the bunk beds, but still very nice! 🙂

    No toilet, shower, or sink? I don’t get it. Maybe it’s because I’m a girl, but a cozy fireplace with no toilet doesn’t make me relax at all; I would always be nervous about having to wander over the snow to the nearest bathroom. And there is a table for eating at and coffee cups, but no sink for water.

    While I could see this as an adjunct for guests, it’s best for young men, or women who have big bladders. My husband and I would both be making multiple trips to the main house bathroom every night!

      Ummm……. there’s no “main house”. There’s a lot of woods though.

      Aren’t the majority of these “small houses” really just glam camping? I think very few rational adults would ever choose to live this way.

    Beautiful inside & out. Lovely details on the exterior.
    It would be perfect in the back yard for when family & friends visit during summer holidays.
    I could see all kids wanting to camp out over night in it, tons of sleeping bags everywhere!
    So cozy!

    It’s a very nice bedroom. Not a house, but very nice.

    I love these guys caravan! The work is fantastic, so beautiful and their shepherd wagons are just as nice. I want one on a road trailer and 20ft long! One day!

    Wow, beautiful design and finishing. Not set up as a full time living arrangement but perfectly adequate for short term stays. A sink is not absolutely necessary, you can use basins or bowls to wash up in though a work surface would be handy. Their site does show other configurations.

    Superb craftsmanship – a work of art. Thanks for sharing!

    The craftsmanship is just beautiful! However, where the bunk beds are, I would have put in a kitchen area with sink and small refrigerator. I would also have outfitted this with tires for towing if one were so inclined to move it from site to site. I will have to check out their website to see what other configurations they have. Outstanding!

    Saw this at the Cottage Life Show in Toronto. This is a superb little trailer. Yes, there’s no bathroom or sink/kitchen, but you don’t necessarily need one if you’re using it as a spare bedroom. It would be perfect on a lot with a small cabin that needs extra sleeping space. It’s like a modern day Shepherd’s Hut. The builder at the show explained that this particular model isn’t made to be towed like a traditional camping trailer, but rather as a “bunkie” or bunkhouse.

    This has some great ideas for my place. I love the desk/bookshelf! Great IDEA!
