Because it was formed by glaciers carving the land and creating islands, Norway’s western coast is full of rocky and rough terrain. Skardsya is one of those islands, and it’s where the next tiny house we’ll show you is located. Instead of cutting the rock to meet their needs, the family constructed the house to fit with the sloping rock!
The house was designed by a local architect but built by the family because they didn’t want to spend money on breaking up the rock or laying a tall foundation. As a result, the house descends with the rock into the sea.
The home is open on the inside, with expansive views both inside and out! The sloping roof, as well as the monochromatic color scheme, make the home seem larger than it is. The kitchen has sleek cabinets and a small oven and cooktop, and it backs up to a big bedroom with a loft above it, which is separated by a curtain.
This home is absolutely stunning, with even more stunning views! And it demonstrates that working with nature is always the best (and most cost-effective) choice! Visit their website at http://www.tyinarchitects.com/ to learn more about the architect who created the design.
