Living Small in a Tiny House is Really About Living Big
Tiny houses aren’t just for hipsters and millennials anymore. As Americans and Canadians have taken an interest in tidying up, downsizing their belongings and living more efficiently, the tiny house movement has gone mainstream, and it’s inspiring people of all ages to embrace small spaces. Our “Tiny Heaven“ is placed on one of the most magical places we have found in many years traveling around the world in our boat. It sits in a lovely green field full of apple trees, surrounded by mountains. Facing northeast is an ocean view, where a babbling brook ends as a waterfall on a private sandy beach. The perfect shower after an ocean swim. And its unspoiled quiet will help you to experience life with open eyes and a new energy. It is back to basics. It is heaven on earth.
Everything you need is here: the brook supplies you with clear mountain water for your unique original wine barrel indoor shower; a propane stove for cooking; a sofa that looks out to an incredible view that opens into a single bed; and a loft with a comfortable king sized bed and four screened windows.
In 2014 this tiny house was chosen to be one of the coolest 17 AirBnB listings in Canada. Read here…

Reduction makes us happy.
This is the way of living we practiced for many years on the ocean in our sailboat. It has finally reached maturity in a new vision, on land. We want to share the vision, in a world of "too much", of wastefulness and of restlessness.
Positive reviews proof that people appreciate this experience. Read here…

Happiness can be found in the smallest cabin, sometimes more easily than in a big villa, because happiness is more about “being“ than about owning something.

The idea of living in a tiny house in the middle of nowhere, in a paradise, is even more: it is a way to be free and independent, gifted by mother nature with all the basics you need for happiness: solar power, water and warmth. A so called tiny house is built like a solid well insulated big house, but it needs only a small portion of the energy of a big house, thanks to high tech appliances and small rooms.
Nothing is wasted, even the compost generated by the toilet can be used for gardening.

„Use all your senses in an environment like this.
There is so much to inspire you about live, just being out there.
As long as there are places like this where I can paddle,
drink the water, catch the fish, breath the air
and listen to the birds in the surrounding mountains,
as long as places like this still exist, there is still hope for me
to continue on with what I do.
If we can inspire more people to come to places like this
and feel same things we feel, there is hope that it´s not lost yet.“
