The structure, including outside entrances and deck has a compact footprint of 96 square feet, while the retreat itself is a 50 square feet cabin
The house sits on the lakeside in the Finish wilderness, with views of the surrounding landscape visible from both the bottom floor and the upper lof
The cabin is big enough to accommodate a bedroom, lounge area and storage space
The large angled windows also serve to filter natural light throughout the building during the day
The outside deck is perfect for reading a book or dining under the stars, equipped with two cosy lounge chairs and a barbecue
Designer Robin Falck has created his very own micro home that is small enough to be built without a permit in Finland. According to Finnish regulations, you can bypass the permit process if the structure is smaller than 96 or 128 square feet (depending on where you build). With the help of a couple of local architects, Falck was able to make his original designs a reality and the result is this simple and stylish rural retreat.
