One concern that often arises when people are considering living in tiny houses and other alternative housing is how well these dwellings hold up to the elements, including cold and snow. Tiny Green Cabins is a company in Minnesota that specializes in building tiny houses that are perfectly adapted to withstand the harshest winter extremes. They pride themselves on building transportable, sustainable, and non-toxic tiny houses.
The Wildflower is just one of Tiny Green Cabins’ many home models, featuring built in bookcases, a loft that sleeps two, and beautiful wood paneling throughout. A welded steel frame and foam insulation make it a warm, durable housing option for cold, harsh winter climates. The home is 8′ wide by 17′ to 19′ long and has a nice 7′ x 3′ covered front porch.
On their website, Tiny Green Cabins states about their homes:
A well-designed smaller home plan orchestrates the flow of the spaces, making sense of all areas, no matter how compact.
Some of the materials used in construction include recycled blue jeans, low VOC paints, locally harvested lumber and recycled products such as steel. Customizations include solar panels and solar hot water heaters, allowing the homes to be taken entirely off the grid.
It is a design that feels larger than its square footage, with storage space to help eliminate clutter and outdoor living spaces to expand the home to the outside. It’s also a home that, most importantly, lives in harmony with your lifestyle and is earth friendly by creating a small sustainable footprint.
