An ode to nature and freedom
Discreet, all wood and in harmony with nature, the tiny house is an unconventional dwelling, halfway between a trailer and a house. Mounted on a trailer, it can be easily transported from one place to another. Its irresistible charm creates emulators, but not only!
Even if the craze dates back to several years ago, the confinements following the health crisis have reinforced the attraction for mobile homes, and in particular for the tiny house. This trendy habitat satisfies the desire for renewal, the need to escape and the environmental concerns of neo-ruralists.
Indeed, this mini-home is not a simple atypical housing, it is a new way of thinking about housing, a real movement, in full expansion, based on minimalism and ecology.
Out with the superfluous and in with the simple! Whether you live there for a year or just a few months, the idea is simple: live with less, but better. Tiny houses represent a global way of approaching life, focused on the essential, nature and freedom. Escape from the city to reconnect with nature is now an achievable wish.
An XXS habitat on a human scale, ecological, geographically free, and offering a simpler alternative lifestyle: these are the precepts of the Tiny House concept.
Belgian manufacturers of high-end mini houses on wheels
Manufacturers and builders deploy a wealth of ingenuity to offer you high quality tiny houses that meet your needs in terms of environmental impact, comfort and design.
Vinciane and Véronique, the founders of Ola Cabana, rely on 100% Belgian handcrafted construction in noble wood from the Ardennes. Their tiny house models, aesthetic and durable, with burnt wood siding and pine wood panelling, blend perfectly with nature… To the point of erasing the boundaries between inside and outside. No matter where the house is placed – in the middle of nature, in a meadow, a wood or a garden – it will literally blend into the decor. Ola Cabana’s cozy and rustic tiny houses invite you to disconnect from your daily routine and offer a fun and creative experience to live with family and friends.
Wildernest, the first custom tiny house builder in Belgium, focuses on designing fully customizable dwellings on wheels. It collaborates with Belgian craftsmen who respect its values. At the heart of its concerns: sustainability, ecology, innovation and practicality. From design to installation, the manufacturer and its specialized architects guide and accompany the future owners in their project.
These two builders, aligned with the Tiny House movement, present a minimalist luxury, that is to say all the necessary comfort of the biggest houses, but in a concentrated way. And above all in a more practical and ingenious way.
Inspirations for a modern and comfortable tiny house
Need some inspiration and/or decorating tips before you become the owner of a house on wheels?
For a durable tiny house, it is essential to rely on a wooden frame. This is essential to insulate the house, but also to protect it from bad weather. An all-wooden architecture will harmonize perfectly with the environment. Large bay windows will be welcome to feel closer to nature.
The interior layout must be ingeniously thought out. Every centimeter must be optimized to create storage space, on the floor or high up, as well as cocoon spaces to preserve the comfort of a traditional home. Minimalism will be de rigueur, as well as sustainable furniture, favored to respect the deep ethical values of the movement. The colors will be naturally neutral to recall nature as well as to gain clarity and a sense of space. Finally, a few contemporary decorative accessories – candles, green plants, vases – will offer a poetic, peaceful and warm atmosphere.

As far as Belgian legislation is concerned, the regulations differ according to the region. In Flanders and in the Brussels region, a legal blur persists. At the moment, there is no text giving a legal framework to these houses on wheels. In Wallonia, tiny houses are considered as light dwellings. However, whatever the region, a planning permission is required.
