Kleiner Nomade: Wilhelm, a small house with only 9900 euros

Have you dreamed of a small house kit to build yourself, but can not find what you are looking for? What if you tried to turn to our German neighbors and trust Kleiner Nomade, one of the largest builders of small houses across the Rhine? Kleiner Nomade has been around for several years and specializes in building small wooden, ecological and possibly autonomous wooden houses. For less than € 10,000 (excluding delivery costs), the company offers a basic kit that you have to build yourself. To prove to you that you can live comfortably there, one of their models, Wilhelm, is available for rent. Testing before you buy can be a good idea. We will explain everything to you!

Discovery of Wilhelm’s Little House

The Wilhelm is mounted on a dual-axle trailer that can carry a maximum of 3.5 tonnes. With this weight, she will be limited to a speed of 80 km / h. With its width of 2.55 meters and its length of 7.28 meters, it is clear that this small house is not designed to be moved very often, but still bears the name of its small house, as it is built on a trailer. This little house is called an off-grid house, so you can take it anywhere (or almost) without relying on home networks.

A little visit inside?

Upon entering Wilhelm, we discover on the left the living room which offers a sofa and a desk on a heated floor. On the right there is an L-shaped kitchen with fridge, cooking, cupboards, etc. It is obviously supplied with water, through an autonomous system installed in the potty. Still on the ground floor are the toilets and toilet. Upstairs is the sleeping area with a large bed with a window that acts as a “head”. Little Wilhelm is designed to accommodate four people, as the sofa becomes an extra bed. Specifically, if you want to build even a small Wilhelm house, you will need to purchase the basic kit as specified above and add the rest that the company offers as an option. Assuming you would like the “turnkey” model, he would come back to you about 50 thousand euros. The company announces a delay of 8 weeks just for the delivery of the frame. If you want to rent it and spend a few days in little Wilhelm, it is available here and is close to Bremen in Germany.
