Greetings from Belgium! 🙂
Do you remember when we rebranded and said we were headed in a new direction? Well this is our first step into that direction 🙂 Dreaming inside and outside the box if you will. This tiny home is not made of a shipping container but it looks like it doesn’t it? We have showcased a few homes over the past year that we had to take down because we found out later they weren’t shipping container homes. But now we are excited to add these “boxy” looking homes into our inspiration collection at The Casa Club!
A new modular and prefab home from Belgium offers everything you need in a home in very small space! The home is called the Ark Shelter, and it’s produced in the Belgian town of Gent. Each home comes fully furnished with everything from appliances to eating utensils. Built mostly from wood, each home has a platform bed, full kitchen, bathroom, and a table with two chairs.
There are many traditional architectural elements that tiny homes can skimp on, but natural light isn’t one of them. Thankfully, the gorgeous Ark Shelter offers an abundance of windows cut into its inky black facades. Floor-to-ceiling glass on two walls of the cabin lets in natural light while offering a visual connection to the natural landscape beyond—that is, if you put your Ark somewhere idyllic.
Designed as minimalist retreats from the hustle and bustle of today’s connected lives, these modular wooden homes are prefabricated and can be shipped just about anywhere. A completed model, which can be had for $59,000, comes fully furnished with everything from appliances to cooking utensils.
Built primarily of wood, the home’s facade is painted a trendy black on the outside, with pale wood paneling within. The interior foregoes the typical tiny-house bedroom loft in favor of a built-in platform bed adjoining a large picture window. There’s also a modern stove, a table and two chairs, full kitchen, and bathroom.
I personally really like it. Beautifully done work!
So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
