A small village on the east coast of Jutland is the setting for this tiny house on a foundation. Designed and built just last year by contractor Simon Steffensen, the home has a Scandinavian Modern flair to it.

The exterior is black-stained wood, a traditional choice in Scandinavia, but here it was given a modern twist with perfectly-aligned rows of stainless steel fasteners, like contrasting stitching on a pair of black jeans.

Generous overhangs protect the entry and shade the large glass areas on the south side, while the other two sides have no overhang at all. The front overhang appears flat but behind the fascia it actually slopes to the side, acting as a concealed gutter for the main roof.

With only 24 m2 (258 ft2) inside, the tiny house is one room except for the bathroom. The vaulted ceiling and fully-glazed front wall does make it look reasonably spacious inside, though most people would probably want more of a kitchen than the tiny kitchenette in place now. The pared-back design with white walls, light wood and pale blue accents make for a pretty standard Scandinavian interior design. In one unique move though, the oak plank flooring was carried up the back wall.

The sleeping loft’s ceiling looks high enough that some people will be able to stand below the ridge. For taller folks, at least there is plenty of headroom for sitting up in bed.

This tiny house is currently for sale with an asking price of 485,000 Danish kroner, or roughly US$74,000.
