A Finnish Tiny House/Sauna AND Houseboat...

A mobile sauna in Finland, built/designed by the London-based architects Denizen Works

I felt this little cabin on skids (making it "mobile" which allowed it to be permissable by the local building ordinances) stood as what could be a great (and simple) tiny house or vacation cabin, or even a great little floating home/houseboat, aside from its obvious and intended use as a sauna. The skids enable the whole structure to be pulled onto the ice in the winter, where the sauna's occupants could open up a swim hole in the ice for a post-sweat plunge. 
The building was made with locally sourced lumber, and its windows are all recycled.
