This seaside cottage is located outside the village of Kalvsvik on a large lake in Sweden. It was built in 1934 and completely renovated in 2008. The 50 m2 (538 ft2) cottage has one bedroom on the main level plus a small sleeping loft.
The exterior retains the traditional Swedish vernacular finishes of red tiled roof and painted board and batten siding. The interior has been updated to have a beach house vibe, with painted pine board paneling giving the home an appropriate relaxed feel, though the all-white scheme is a bit much for our tastes.
The bathroom has a unique space-saving shower stall. It consists of two swinging leaves that you pull out to form a shower enclosure when needed. Then when done, you fold them back against the walls to free up the floor space space for drying off and dressing.
