A Northern Dream - This Tiny Home Is Designed To Handle Cold Climates


If you have an eye for the ever expanding world that are tiny home, then you may want to take a look at this specific one that was crafted by Minimaliste, A tiny home company that is based in Quebec, Canada. Of course, when people think of a tiny home they are often thinking of something that is sustainable and able to accommodate just about everything else that is required for a comfortable lifestyle.

However, when it comes to the Sakura tiny home, Minimaliste founder Philippe Beaudoin gives us an even better idea of how a self-sufficient a living space can be. The Sakura tiny home is established at 380 square feet and has a variety of special little secrets on how to operate the home. Some of the major selling features of the home is the large bedroom, large soaking tub, three-level water filtration system, hydroponic radiant heating in the floors, versatile/convertible sitting/dining area, and comes with a Lunos air exchanger including a heat recovery system. The Sakura was meant to handle cold climates and is extremely well insulated for this reason.

The living/dining room is able to seat four people comfortably and can be maneuvered in a variety of ways so that the home owners are able to adjust themselves to a more adequate setting of their choosing. There is also hidden storage space that you can find within the sofas.

The way that the kitchen is designed is on two facing walls that also leads to the secondary upstairs loft just by the refrigerator and stove.The staircase that leads up to the bedroom can also be utilized for extra storage space. The bedroom portion of the tiny home was built over the front end of the gooseneck trailer, allowing it to reside comfortably. Lifting the bed up can also be utilized for extra storage!

One of the more surprising aspects about this tiny home is how big the bathroom is. Even though it isn't exactly the largest bathroom, it is still considerably big compared to other tiny homes. This bathroom has enough room for a small tub/shower as well as a composting toilet.

Spanning from the second loft is a skylight attached to another ladder that leads you onto a cedar roof deck, giving the homeowner a full view of the outside world atop their tiny home.

The asking price for this tiny home is a staggering USD $102,000, well above the average. It is also a good thing to consider that this tiny home is a high-end, customized establishment so it shouldn't be too shocking as to how high the price is. Or, if you are feeling creative, you could actually build your own tiny home for way cheaper and probably a little more sustainable depending on what you're looking for.

That is just some of the beauty of owning a tiny home, being able to customize just about anything you want! Unless you really want the Sakura, then you have all the information you need to decide on whether or not you want to make a sound investment on something that can make living a little bit easier for you.
