Anna and Martin's Tiny Handbuilt Cottage Floating on a Swedish Lake






"I've never tried that before, so I'm sure I'll manage it" - so said Pippi Longstocking, and these are the words Swedish florist Anna Starrén and her husband Martin live by.

The house has everything you might need for a relaxing day by the lake including a sleep loft, sauna, isolated floor, wifi, fridge, gas stove, shower, water converter, shower, dry loo, binoculars, bird book, ceramics for 10!, a coffee maker and an anchor!  Oil lamps are dotted around the little cottage, providing light and heat. The cottage is also powered by 2 x 160 solar panels and a 3x 90 amp battery. 
The kitchen, sofa and ladder have all been hand built to fit the space. 
Anna says: "building this house is one of the best things we've ever done, it's become our year-round refuge."
