Guide to micro garden houses

We know that this article does not have to do with crops or plants that we can put in our garden or garden. However, we found it curious and interesting since after all, it is one more element to take into account in the garden. We will not talk about climate, irrigation, needs or types of soil at this entrance to the bridge. We are going to comment on a constructive trend for the garden. The micro-houses. 



Sometimes you have that need to have an isolated space where you can abstract yourself, even from your own home. If we have a place like this in the garden we can enjoy another space without having to move, where we will have privacy and silence to think or do our hobbies. If, in addition to changing the scene, these airs are comfortable like a home and respectful of the environment, what else do we want? Welcome to the world of micro houses.

Trends change, needs change and we have to adapt spaces to these constant changes. The garden shed is being changed for the study or office or whatever each one wants with a level of comfort that has nothing to envy that of a house and in which we can abstract for a long time, enjoy the silence or simply work concentrated.

For this, the concept of micro houses has been created. They are already known in some European countries and the US, where they are enjoying a certain popularity. The concept is as follows: Low cost, level of comfort of a house, transportable and ecological construction.


They are also generally known as bioclimatic modular houses. The micro houses are a variant of reduced dimensions. The great advantage of this type of construction is that assembly time is minimal, since everything comes in prefabricated modules that are assembled, making assembly time a minimum cost compared to the total. To get an idea, the construction of a conventional work requires 2 to 4 months. This type of houses are assembled in 3-4 days.


The first impression you may have when hearing about this type of house may be the following: – They will be like barracks-, cold in winter and in summer you roast, they will be ugly, without any kind of grace-. This is totally wrong. We are used to the fact that a house has to be made of brick and concrete, but the truth is that the current research on materials allows us to build with light, insulating, environmentally friendly elements and with very very curious designs. The great advance in windows with very high levels of insulation, allow the entry of a large amount of light without sacrificing the tightness of the cabin, making it bright and at the same time energetically passive.

The simplest variants can contain a kind of living room or study. If we get a little more complicated we can even have a house with the necessary equipment for some guests (I’m talking about a small bathroom and kitchen). We can find designs, surfaces and shapes.

The use that we are going to give one of these houses can be very varied. Study, living room, guest room, workspace isolated from noise and from the house, office, a small gym in the garden. There are a thousand ways to use it.

Finally, to say that the most interesting thing is perhaps that when it is considered movable, it can be installed in a rustic property (consult regulations) expanding the possibilities of a plot that we have not developable in which a small house of these would fit perfectly.
