They say it’s not about size, it’s how you use it – and this clever tiny home belies its square-footage by maximizing its height.

Originally conceived by New Frontier Tiny Homes for children’s author Cornelia Funke, the cabin measures just 24 ft by 8.5 ft, but it feels bigger thanks to its soaring ceilings and clerestory windows which draw light into its rustic, Scandinavian-inspired interiors.

You can now order your own Cornelia cabin, which starts from $110,000. The tricked-out version will set you back $125,000, and comprises a living room with fold-down desk, small kitchen and bathroom. Both versions are fully mobile thanks to their trailer bases.

Should a case of writer’s block strike, there’s a king-sized sleeping loft for restorative snoozing. It is tucked above the kitchen and reached via ladders.

 

 

The versatile studio is ready to hook up to the mains, but can be customized further (budget dependent) to include eco-features such as compost toilets, zero-waste water systems and solar panels.

It takes around three months for delivery, and can be used as a writer’s den, guesthouse – or even a library.
