A mini house has an optimal living space, which is mostly intended only for married couples or single people. If you only need the house for a holiday with lots of adventure and great experiences during the summer or winter holidays, then you should not worry about the room size. It is not recommended to plan these types of houses for a permanent use, because a living space between 20 and 40 square meters will bring many disadvantages after a certain time and that’s exactly what we like to avoid.


You can build or buy the house construction yourself according to your taste. There is a large selection of small wooden mini houses that are not only located in Germany, but also worldwide. The only common similarity of the miniature houses is their wooden construction. It is very rare to find variants made of aluminum or glass, which have a higher price than the wooden construction. The following picture shows a glass mini-house that has become an eye-catcher with its outstanding looks. The disadvantage of this kind of small houses is that any incurred heating costs are very high.

Floor-to-ceiling windows with elegant wood construction is an absolute trend nowadays, which also offers many advantages. If you have an untypical location plan, then you should ensure the stability of the house to 100% percent. For this you can gabions or use different concrete structures to ensure optimum safety.
