The Wohlwagen (loosely translated to mean caravan) is a beautiful example of good design and practical engineering. This tiny house has a vibe that just makes you want one!
Wohlwagen is a German company focused on sustainable living in mobile spaces. Since the time this article was first published in 2013, Wohlwagen has added several styles of tiny homes to its portfolio of offerings.
The following model, known as the L1, is approximately 300 square feet of living space, a perfect combination of functionality and beauty.
With wood-framed siding, paneling, and flooring, the Wohlwagen is modern yet cozy.
Couple that with its sheer practicality and this tiny house is a worthy contender for anyone looking to live off grid in minimalist style. This wonderful little caravan is not your mother-in-law’s travel trailer, for sure.
An expandable extension houses the bathroom and a seating room while the home is parked and can be pushed back in when moving.
On the opposite side of the home, a deck can be folded down for outdoor living space. A canopy above the glass door folds down when not in use.
A nice kitchen and dining area make great use of space.
A comfortable bedroom area sits opposite the kitchen. The home is warmed by a wood burning heater.
The bed folds up to make room for a desk. An instant office for those who work from home!
The bathroom is simple, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing.
Besides the beautiful craftsmanship, Wohlwagen’s unique building practices make the company an attractive option from which to purchase a sustainable home.
Trees are purchased locally from strictly sustainable forestry operations. The boards are cut and dried using their own equipment, and only these boards are used throughout the entire home. The chassis utilizes parts built in a neighboring workshop.
