The Japanese tradition of Shou Sugi Ban has been appearing in modern houses and shacks for some time. Now Minimalist is using the technique on a much smaller scale on their Magnolia Tiny House. The 10.5 x 34.5 foot house has a two-tone exterior façade made of cedar planks laid horizontally as well as vertical rooms blackened with the old practice. Sitting on a three-axle trailer, the “mobile home” offers a spacious interior with a living room, kitchen and bedrooms on the first floor, as well as a central attic that can be used as storage space or as a guest room. The large windows welcome in natural light, intensifying the bright and airy atmosphere of the all-white palette while the dark wooden floors and beams provide a rustic warmth.
