This man, Charles was getting tired of being cold in his Stockholm Nature House. He is a engineer in training and decided to tackle the challenge head on with his skill and trade. At first he looked for an empty lot to build an entirely new tiny home. However he decided on an old summer house on the Stockholm archipelago. His mentor Bengt Warne, helped him design the green house cover. He ended up covering the small summer home with it’s addition in 4 millimeter glass. The area of the greenhouse wrap is nearly double that of the home and it only made sense to start a garden to continue to be self-sustaining. Inside the bubble it’s a Mediterranean climate allowing them to grow produce that isn’t seen in  Sweden naturally like figs, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Being an engineer Charles also developed sewage filtration system and other water retention to pull the Nature House off the water grid and be self-sustaining water wise. Follow the link to an inspirational video of what Charles went through.
