A small wooden house in an ancient Canadian forest near backwaters reminds a log cabin from a fairy tale. Massive totem next to it is supplied as the veneration of the spirits of the forest. Anyway, a cute suburban house with an area of only 37,2 sq meters has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Dutch architect Henry Yorke Mann has developed a small country house called “the Totems”, built in the mountain area of British Columbia (Canada). In this log building there is something primal, especially since it is built on the principle of the tirbes’ dwellings, in which the Haida Indians live on the Northern Pacific coast.

The area of The Totems is only about 37.2 square meters. There is a fireplace in the middle of the room, and on the perimeter you can find all the necessary furniture and equipment.
