A Tiny House Has Popped Up Outside of Prague

The tiny houses movement has much in common with Czech cottage living; build your own in no time!

If you have been following the tiny-house movement you may have noticed some ideological overlap between these cozy diminutive dwellings and Czech cottage culture.

No surprise then that a new how-to on living simply in small spaces was devised by a Czech architect with big plans for the future of sustainable living.

Vojtěch Valda’s prototype of tiny house brilliance recently sprung up in Třebešice near Divišov, south of Prague. It is an experimental pre-fabricated home designed as part of his Pin-Up Houses project.

The house, which costs around 30,000 CZK to build, can be assembled in a day. It consists of twenty-one insulated panels and is made up of three spaces: a blue zone for sleeping, a white space for a day room, and a red area with a kitchenette.

The Pin-Up Houses site sells plans for additional styles of tiny houses, sheds, cabins, cottages, and play houses, many of which have been popping up all over the US, from small-town Indiana to the Hawaiian islands.

Valda says of this particular house, called Tiny France for its tri-color hue, and the initiative in general:

“This is part of our ongoing research into the feasibility of mass-produced prefabricated tiny houses. This concept is based on our long-term experience with tiny house construction, creating easy to follow plans and books for DIY constructors.”

While the Pin-Up Houses project gives a shout out to Czech cottage living on its site, we have to ask why this little red-white-and-blue beauty isn’t rather named Tiny Czechia?
