Comfort comes in small packages

Max Green lives with his family in a tiny house measuring just a few square meters in the Brandenburg countryside. Despite the compact dimensions, comfort has not been compromised—including in the bathroom.

My house, my car, my boat – while “bigger”, “more expensive”, and “more exclusive” were still aspirational life goals a few years ago, there are more and more people nowadays who want to live a simpler, less ostentatious lifestyle. Max Green is one of them. For just under a year, the coach and YouTuber has been living with his little family in a “tiny house” measuring just 15 square meters. This minuscule area contains a kitchen, a lounge and dining room, a generous sleeping space and a fully equipped bathroom. Wheels are mounted beneath the house to let the family move on to a different location whenever they want.

Clearing away the clutter

Although Max Green had long striven to live a sustainable, scaled-back lifestyle, it still wasn’t easy to switch from an 80-square-meter apartment in Berlin to the tiny house: “We always thought that we didn’t have a lot of stuff. But when you have to downsize the way we did, you suddenly realize that you’re still surrounded by useless clutter.” However, he’s still happy with the decision: “It’s really liberating to have so few things surrounding us. And the proximity to nature that we now enjoy is a real bonus.” Green had the tiny house tailored to his exact wishes by specialists. When the plans were drawn up, a comfortable bathroom was a high priority. “People tend to cut corners on this room in tiny houses. However, it was important to us that a small bathtub could still fit in the space provided, and that there would be enough room for two people to brush their teeth at once.”
The Villa 9000 dry toilet from Separett also contributes to the comfort in the bathroom. It separates solids from liquid waste through a flap, which also prevents unpleasant odors from developing. This effect is reinforced by a quiet ebm-papst fan with two-stage control. Firstly, this ensures that any odors are guided straight out of the room. Secondly, it dries solid waste quicker, which likewise helps to prevent unpleasant smells.

Reliability for the trend market

Mikael Billsund, CEO of Separett, explains why the Swedish company puts its trust in ebm-papst: “That’s very simple—reliability. We want our customers to be able to use the toilets for as long as possible. The quality of every single component matters for this.” Billsund and his company are also keeping one eye on the “tiny house” trend: “Many of our toilets are being installed in tiny houses, especially in Germany and the USA. That’s why we’re currently working on an advanced version of the toilet that is even more compact and therefore even more suitable for this application.”

Max Green is extremely satisfied with the Villa 9000. “The toilet works flawlessly, and we never have any issues with the smell.” As such, the family can enjoy the fresh country air in Brandenburg at all times.
