La Nordica Mamy wood cook stove in a family room. This is where the fireplace used to be, hence an easy chimney connection. Non-combustible brick walls on all sides mean that the cook stove can be installed in a zero-clearance fashion!
We constructed the built-ins so we'd have room for a kitchenette (closet on the left) and a place for a composting toilet (closet on the right). The space under the bed hides the pop-up trundle that makes the bed into a king-size bed. Not pictured is the portable air conditioner that keeps the room cool in the summer that vents out through the wall. We'll add a slim profile wall mounted heater in the fall.

This small house doesn't feel small because of the high ceilings and the connections of the spaces. The daylight was carefully plotted to allow for sunny spaces in the winter and cool ones in the summer. Duffy Healey, photographer.
