A tiny house inspired by Saami Torvkata and Yurts


It took Daniel two months work to build his tiny natural home in Northern Sweden with a few friends in 2008. Taking inspiration from Saami (native Scandinavians) torvkata (turf hut) and yurts, Daniel cut a 3m x 3m hole into a sunny hillside 1.5m deep. Building intuitively the house grew quickly. The home, which cost nearly nothing to build, stays warm in the winter, cool in the summer and still provides a magical home for one of Daniel's friends. Please watch Daniel's wonderful videos of his life and home.
