Get a Look Inside the World’s First Beach Hut. (There’s a Surprise Inside!)
You've never seen a true tiny home until you take a peek inside this masterpiece.
We’re calling it: The future of vacation homes has arrived.
Think the tiny houses trend is a little… perfect? Just wait till you get a look at the world’s first subterranean beach hut, built by British inventor Colin Furze. You’d have to travel to Lincolnshire on the east coast of England to take a peek inside, but trust us—the trip would be totally worth it. (Or take one of the best beach vacations in the U.S., instead!)
There’s a surprise inside
But once you step inside, things start to get a bit more interesting. The front foyer holds homey additions like a clock, piece of driftwood, and the words “home sweet home” to decorate the walls.
…and a secret trap door
But the checkered floor holds a secret: a trap door—see its round outline?—that leads to an underground compartment.
Wait, there’s more!
If you think that’s all there is to it, think again. The second trap door leads to a living room with a chair and a tea set (with a full-size painting, to boot!). Now that you’re two levels underground, you can quietly enjoy your tea and a book without fear of being interrupted.
And get this: Furze built the whole thing by hand! Yep, we’re convinced—a tiny beach hut is definitely going to be our next affordable family vacation.
