“Elämän-Puu” – tiny cob & straw bale house

Heidi Vilkman lives in the North East of England, but is from Finland. Over 3 months in the summer of 2012, she built a tiny house made from cob and straw bale in southern Finland.

Heidi is a brilliant multi-disciplined artist and produces paintings, drawings, jewellery, cards, paper-cut art and much, much more. Her talents have clearly been poured into her beloved tiny house which features sculpted interior and exterior detail.

Living in the Future

Sometimes, you just need to go and do it! This is what this young guy did for his family – built a beautiful roundhouse with reciprocal frame roof and all the trimmings – spectacular.

The house is in Wales, UK.
