Tiny Cube House in Medieval French Town

This tiny cube house is a simple 10′ by 10′ structure.

At just 100-square-feet, it’s cleverly designed.

These cube homes are portable because they can be transported using flatbed trucks and a forklift.

At just 100-square-feet, it still sleeps four thanks to the loft and sofa beds.

The design includes areas for a kitchen with stove, sink and a fridge.

There’s also a bathroom with shower, a sitting area and plenty of storage and shelving space throughout.

Tiny Houses as Vacation Rentals in Medieval Village

In this video tour, Kirsten Dirksen of Faircompanies.com take you to Caroline’s property in Carrés d’étoiles de la Paleine, France in the village of Puy-Notre-Dame.

Caroline has three of these cube houses that she is using as vacation rentals.

The cube homes cost about 30,900 euro which equates to about $40,000 in the United States.

One of my favorite features is window that allows you to look at the stars while you’re in bed, I think that’s so cool.

    I love love love the skylight with its zipper curtain. I’ve been thinking about a skylight in my design, but what about a mid-day nap? Well, that solves that.

    And I wonder what kind of fireplace that was? It was cute!

      Hey Allie, I think the zipper curtain is awesome too. That skylight feature makes these so awesome… I’d easily exchange my 600 square foot apartment for one of these. Glad you liked it too, Allie! See ya!

    The skylight is very cool. I also like the nesting dining seat/table.

    • Alex December 3, 2011, 8:43 am

      Thanks, Bob, I agree.. the skylight is such a great feature. Great design over all, too!

    That is really sweet – would love to sleep in one and look at the stars! The nesting dining seat/tables are a wonderful idea for any small space, and love the heater, the round windows and the zip curtains. The bathing area was great too! These design features would work so well in a ‘traveling home’ or even a slightly larger ‘mini home’ – thanks for showing this!

      Thanks Kat I’m glad that you liked it! I love it… I think these 10×10 micro homes should be in a lot of backyards.

  • Patricia December 10, 2011, 5:06 pm

    Yes, I love the starlit bedroom, and the round window in the door.

    Cute. Very cleverly designed with lots of good space saving ideas, but for $40K, forget it. For $40K you should be able to built a modest small house not a box, of course it wouldn’t be made of French wood.

    • Alex December 12, 2011, 9:01 am

      Great point, Charlie.. I’m willing to pay for the wood but I understand what you mean! Thanks!

      “Is it Expensive?”

      “Yes, it’s Expensive.” Bahahahahahahaaaa!

      But, it’s FRENCH WOOD! Ooo La La!

      Well, here in the States, for $29,000, you can buy a 3 bedroom home in Michigan City or Hammond, Indiana and THEN go visit France with what you saved! LOL

    It is one neat tiny house. She indicates it is expensive; which is opposite of why tiny houses are made for? It would be neat to see one that is less expensive to build.

    • Alex December 13, 2011, 9:23 am

      Thanks BWG, I’ll try to keep my eye out for less expensive tiny houses for you.

  • BigWarpGuy December 13, 2011, 9:47 pm

    Thanks. It is appreciated. 🙂

    Simply stunning… Inside AND ….that incredible setting…!!

  • allin May 3, 2016, 10:46 am

    Alex, this is wonderful. Going to look into having something like this fabricated here in the US using American wood…lol on a side note I am really appreciate her design.

  • Allin June 5, 2016, 6:41 pm

    Alex, hi enjoy your post. I can’t find anything else about this home. Manufacturer floor plan etc. Can you help?
