Mill House

Wingardhs Mill House in Vastra Karup, Sweden is a manifestation of the Swedish ritual of sauna and bathing.

Well I think they nailed this one. This house probably cost a pretty penny (therefore not an option for most of the people on the planet) but I couldn’t resist posting it due to the sheer beauty of it.

This place is basically a small vacation house with a sauna and an adjacent pool for the post-sauna-dip. I could live this way. How about you?

    How does one get blueprints to this home, and how does the fireplace work? how DOES it draw? and do the glass panels discolor? How many square feet in the home and Aprox price per sq. ft to build? Please reply very interested.

      Hi Steven,

      The best way to get any of that information is to contact Wingardhs directly. There is a link in the post. Let us know what you find and best of luck. We’d love to see pictures of your Mill House!

    i believe this house is a summer house or guest house on a farm with a larger, everyday house so perhaps that explains the less functional aspects of this place. i imagine that it wasn’t designed for everyday use. also, it’s in sweden where you don’t have to worry so much about bugs, even in the summer. and lots of light wood especially is very common in summer homes. i agree that it’s mycket beautiful! if only the whole world were so sweet… :)
    p.s. i’d worry more about water snakes than bugs anyway!

    Me gustaría comprar una casa de estas características para poner en un centro de ski en Chile. ¿Cuanto me costaría?

    Saludos y gracias

    Looks like a small house but when you look inside of it, wow it is big and amazing. i would live to live in a place like this. Actually it looks like a peaceful house. My favorite part is the room in the attic. It is so perfect. the interior is nice. Oh i just stumbled it too and i enjoy the house!

    This is so beautiful!
    Would building it without the sauna and pool lower the cost?
    I live in australia and would love to build it here!
