Small doesn’t always mean cramped: Innovative design has made tiny houses incredible spaces to live in.
In a new series of Amazing Spaces, George Clarke visits some ingenious tiny houses, the designers of which have come up with innovative solutions to overcome their lack of space.
Deep in the Norwegian wilderness in the Veldre Forest, 140 miles north of Oslo, this treehouse is built nine metres above ground and can withstand up to nine tonnes of snow and gale-force winds.
Inside, the rustic and cosy 15 metre-squared cottage can comfortably sleep eight people, and with an abundance of timber used inside and out, it's not short on Norwegian charm.
The cleverly-designed loft makes smart use of the cabin's height and easily fits two queen-size beds with panoramic views of the stunning landscape. Each bed even has its own skylight!
But the highlight of this tiny treehouse has got to be its stunning open-air terrace. We can just picture ourselves out there, lighting a fire and enjoying the unbeatable views with a mug of mulled wine in hand.
