hermitage new
This now includes building tiny houses described as “hermitages”. Arvesund is a Swedish company which manufactures and produces the hermit’s cabin. The dwelling is just one room with one single bed and a kitchen. The company has built multiple prototypes in Sweden where visitors can stay and they also ship the homes around the world. They also produce the special stove and water heating system in the house: http://www.arvesund.com
