This beautiful Baluchon tiny home was built for Sarah, who loves cooking! That’s why she wanted a spacious kitchen — complete with a four-burner oven/stove — as the focal point of her tiny home. She called it “Pètillante” which means “Sparkling” or “Bubbly.”

The whole build is bright and open, with a huge picture window in the living room, lightly-colored walls and ceiling, and the bedroom tucked away in the loft. She also has a glass shower and composting toilet. Would you live here?

At the very bottom is a living space with a small kitchenette and toilet. as you go up the winding steps, you’ll reach the bedroom loft. What do you think?

David and his wife have been building a small home in Kenya, but just before the pandemic hit they were in the process of selling their country home in France and renting out their townhome, leaving them with nowhere to stay! So they took the space above their garage and created a 300 square foot tiny house. They were able to move in just 2 days before France locked down.

While they are no longer living tiny in France, they spent about a year (during all that quarantining!) living in their gîte. David shares all the details in a little story after the photo tour, so be sure to read that!

I’m always on the lookout for unique vacation stays, and this one lets you sleep in a plane and a tiny house!

The Cessna Aircraft sleeps one comfortably, or a couple quite snugly, and would be a great spot for kids or aviation fanatics. It’s in a campground with other unique stays and there are common areas and a pool for you to enjoy. What do you think? Check it out below!

“Rebellious” — that’s a great way to describe the tiny house movement, huh? Bucking the tide of “normal” McMansions and sometimes bending the laws to live more simply. Maybe that’s why Patricia & Jean-François named their Baluchon-built tiny house Insoumise, which roughly translates to “rebellious” in English (according to Google Translate, feel free to correct me!).

Walk through the sliding glass doors into the living room, where their sleeper sofa acts as a guest bed. They can eat breakfast at their table beside a large picture window, after preparing a meal in their compact kitchen with oak counter tops.

By far the neatest part of the home is the loft bedroom, where a huge skylight provides nature views from the bed. Enjoy the photo tour!

This is Sylvie’s Tiny Bubble — a gorgeous tiny house on wheels designed and built by La Tiny House in France. The home is similar to a teardrop camper, but with so much more space.

Her home was designed to be retirement-friendly. While it does feature a loft guest room, everything else Sylvie needs is on the first floor: A ground-floor bed, a wide-open floor plan, and a wet bath with plenty of space. Off the front door is a partially-enclosed porch that protects her from winds but still lets the light in!
