This old-time summer cottage shares a small island with less than a dozen other cottages. The island is in Karlholm bay on the Baltic Sea, a couple hours drive north of Stockholm.
The small cottage dates from 1930, and originally consisted of just the middle portion that is now the living room. The two “wings” were added in 1975, giving the cottage its bird-like roof profile and bringing the floor space to 55 m2 (592 ft2). The expansion made room for a kitchen and dining area on one side and two small bedrooms on the other. They are a step down from the original floor level to allow sufficient headroom under the low-sloped roofs. Even so, the roof barely clears the top of the entry door.
