Toilet options

WC
A conventional flush toilet, which requires a sewage system.

Electric incinerating toilet - Cinderella Comfort
Incinerates urine and solid waste at high temperatures, leaving only a small amount of ash. Four people using the toilet for a week will only produce about one teacup of ash. The toilet has a closed air system where fresh air for the incineration process is supplied via a separate air pipe, which provides a significantly better indoor climate, preventing the room temperature from dropping and avoiding conflicts with other air-dependent installations such as wood-burning stoves. ​The toilet is kept hygienic and clean thanks to bowl bags that safely transport the waste to a combustion chamber when you press the ‘flush’ button. Energy consumption: 0,8-1,5 kWh/use. Find out more here:

OFF-GRID OPTION: Composting toilet
Built from plywood, in this composting toilet urine and faeces are separated, which has two important advantages: firstly, separating the urine will lead to less material in the waste bucket, which therefore needs to be emptied less regularly. Secondly, keeping the solid waste dry is key to reducing the smell. A urine-separating toilet works in all environments, as no drain, heated space or water is required. 
 
How does it work?
 
The Separett Privy 500 urine separating inset separates the urine from the solid waste. The urine runs out into the drainage, while the solid waste is collected in a bucket inside the plywood box. Paper and other man-made materials should be disposed of separately for better decomposing. On the side of the toilet is a box for sawdust intended to cover the solid waste after every visit. This will put a “lock” on the smell and further reduce the moisture. A fan built into the toilet effectively removes any remaining odour to the outside of the house. Once the bucket is full it can be lifted out and the waste materials composted. If you prefer, the urine can be collected in an external tank and e.g. used as “golden water” for your plants.


OFF-GRID OPTION: Dry-toilet - Separett Villa 9000
Functions by separating urine and solid waste. The toilet is equipped with a fan to draw out moisture and air and make the room odourless. The emptying interval for 4 users is every 4-6 weeks. The urine is discharged to a collection vessel or infiltration, while the solid waste ends up in a compostable biosack made of corn starch which can then be composted. Energy consumption: 0.396-0.276 kWh/24 h. Find out more here: https://separett.com/en/urine-diverting-toilet-villa-9000

OFF-GRID OPTION: Gas driven incinerating toilet - Cinderella Freedom
This incinerating toilet uses propane gas instead of electricity for the actual incineration process. This means that you can use your toilet even in areas where there is little or no access to the main electrical grid. All you need is a 12V power supply to control the electronics in the toilet.

Compare all five choices: 

​Choose the WC if you can connect to a sewage system and want the same type of toilet you most commonly find in homes. Choose one of our four dry toilets, if you want to save water and energy in comparison to a conventional flush toilet and/or if you have no access to an existing sewage system. Choose a composting toilet if you are looking for a simple yet hygienic solution built from wood that can be used off grid. Choose a Separett 9000 if you prefer the toilet to look more similar to a WC as it is built from plastic rather than wood. Choose a Cinderella incinerating toilet if you are looking for a deluxe system with hardly any waste management. Choose a Cinderella incinerating toilet - gas if you are looking for a deluxe system with hardly any waste management that can be used off grid.

​Wet-room approved walls from fibo trespo panels

Fibo Fibo wall systems are cost-effective, easy to install, easy to clean, durable and have minimal environmental impact. The systems are certified according to wet room standards and the panels have a warranty period of 15 years. The panels consist of high-pressure laminated boards. They are produced from certified and renewable wood, come with their own EPDs and give extra points for construction projects that are to be environmentally certified according to BREEAM-NOR. The wall panels are available in a wide range, inspired by modern Scandinavian design - whether you like a traditional expression, strong colours in high gloss or nature-inspired tones such as marble or concrete.

Floor options


Vinyl floor
This vinyl from the Tarketts Safetred collection, is a phthalate free option for better indoor air quality. It is also recyclable, and 40% of the content used in production is already recycled. Vinyl floor is made up of several layers, comprising a fibreglass core for stability, a foam or polyester backing for acoustic and thermal insulation, and a transparent “wear layer”, as well as a polyurethane (PU) treatment layer, which provides resistance against spills and stains. The “super matt effect” surface of this specific vinyl further delivers better stain and scuff resistance compared to other vinyl options. It is slip resistant and approved for Swedish standards. Read more about the collection we use here: https://professionals.tarkett.co.uk/en_GB/collection-C000786-safetred-wood

Laminate floor

This laminate floor is a hybrid floor covering consisting of a particle board wood base, topped by an image layer and a transparent “wear layer”. The laminate we use is made of residue of the forestry and wood industry, which makes it a sustainable choice. This is the only floor compatible with our infrared underfloor heating. Note that the laminate flooring in the bathroom might not be covered by your insurance as it doesn’t comply with Swedish standards. Read more about the collection we use here: https://www.quick-step.co.uk/en-gb

 

Compare the two choices: 

Choose Vinyl if you want a waterproof floor which is also approved for Swedish standards.
Choose Laminate if you want underfloor heating in your bathroom.

Plumbing


The water system in a house typically consists of plastic pipes (PEX) built into the interior walls. In a tiny house however, all walls are exterior walls, and in the case of our lightweight houses, comparably thin. If we were to place the pipes inside of the walls, there would be a slight risk that the pipes could freeze, which could result in breakage, leakage and damage to your house. We have therefore decided to place our pipes visible inside the house. For a more aesthetically pleasing look, we use the more premium choice of  copper pipes instead of plastic. Cold weather advice: All external pipes that you connect to your tiny house must be insulated in case minus temperatures can occur in the place where the house will stand. It is also advised to install a heating cable preventing the external pipes from freezing.
