I don’t think I’ve seen a Baluchon build that I haven’t liked, and Anne-Claire’s Green Titmouse THOW is no exception. The client wanted a green roof to blend in with the woodland surroundings where her home is now situated. It even has a built-in window box to add a little green right outside her window.
It features a standard tiny house layout, with the living room in the front, bathroom/kitchen in the back, and a loft bedroom. The Baluchon builders included an adorable cat door in the living room for Anne-Claire’s cat, Milka. The home is heated by a Cubic Mini Wood Burning Stove they imported from Canada.

I love the green on the outside, it will blend beautifully with the forest. And who doesn’t love a warm wood stove on a cold winter night. That big shower and the wonderful little cat door, it’s obvious that this home is well thought out. I really like it.
I’m all about wood stoves!
I love the outside colors, too! I like that the stove is higher up from the floor as well.
Great design and excellent choice of colors inside and outside. Love the cat door!
Such a fun feature.
I absolutely love this home. What a wonderful job. I would have this home built for me. Is there plans for this home? Please let me know if I can purchase the plan.
Hi Inez! You can contact Baluchon and ask for plans here >>> http://www.tinyhouse-baluchon.fr/contact/
Very nicely finished. I like how high the wood stove is, maximizing storage space below. The house feels fresh and open. Interesting how they contrasted the light wood with a few black appliances and fixtures. Baluchon makes beautiful tiny houses.
They really do!
Love this home. But there are a few changes I would make. No wood burning stove,instead I would have a mini split. No cat door,because I don’t have a cat. No composting toilet,I would have an RV flush toilet. What is the cost of this home?
Baluchon is a builder in France, if still interested just contact them on their site…
I really like where they placed the woodstove, up high. I’d carpet/pad the loft floor; those bare wooden floors are quite hard and grinding on the knees of a 61-yr-old’s broken often/put back together self (interesting life as military police, lol). I LOVE the sleek black sinks and fixtures with the white and light natural wood…beautiful! *does a squee of admiration* Keep up the great designs, Baluchon!
I thought the wood burning stove was one of the highlights of this tiny home. And I believe a composting toilet is more environmently friendly ? Your flush water has to go someplace.
I’m in love with these wood stoves. So clever! We always had a wood stove growing up and they feel, to me, like “home.”
@Paul Larsen – Yes, composting is more environmentally friendly. You don’t waste drinking water, also reducing your average daily usage by nearly a 1/3, and it’s nature’s way of recycling all organic matter back into soil/dirt… Beneficial organisms help break the waste down and kill pathogens, along with reducing the production of noxious gases, thus why composting typically won’t smell, commercial units are typically vented to further reduce any chance of smell issues, and without liquids it requires far less space to store before dumping, compared to other options like a Porta Potty/Cassette toilet…
While the sewer system produces gases that may include hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane (10x the greenhouse gas compared to Co2), esters, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Improper disposal of petroleum products such as gasoline and mineral spirits contribute to sewer gas hazards as well.
Along with other unintended contaminates like pharmaceutical that seep into the ground and can make their way back into the drinking water.
Left in the wild, the sewage can kill marine life and trigger toxic algae blooms… Along with spreading certain water born diseases.
Otherwise, the sewage is typically channeled to water treatment plants that at high energy cost treat and clean up the water to then recycle it back into the drinking water supply/tap…
Flush toilets also have the issue that if you flush with the lid open that the vortex effect can generate a plume that can reach up to 15 feet up and contaminate the whole bathroom area with tiny particulates… Flooding can cause sewage to flow back into the house or surrounding area to cause an ecological disaster… Even septic systems need to be periodically drained and if they ever fail on the same property as you have a well then that well can be permanently contaminated and made unusable…
Basically, a lot of issues but they’re pretty much overlooked because of the convenience, people can treat it like a utility so they don’t have to take care of it themselves, and assumption that it’s clean and safe… While most tend to think composting is the opposite but it’s really not… Does require more work, and getting around the idea of it, but is way safer and better for the environment…
Thank you James, a lot of good information I didnt know about. We need to do more stuff like this ( ie Composting toilets ) and collecting rain water, to help ease the strain on our environment and preserve it for future generations.
Very well built little house and very simple to maintain and care for. Also the well laid out floor plan makes it very comfortable to relax for a retiree for sure. Question is it possible to transfer the heat with a damper to through the or from the mini stove to have the heat fall down and to heat the up stairs a little quicker of maybe just a solar powered ceiling fan reversed to draw air up. I always here its cold upstairs or is it downstairs.. you get older and forget sometimes maybe wake up downstairs and eating upstairs. Very nice house I will be watching for future builds and be moving soon from Florida to out West time for a change and to start a new adventure for myself.
Can anyone tell me what kind of wood that is used on the inside? I want that kind (really pretty light colored) and have seen before, but never could find out the type of wood it is (hope it’s not too expensive)!
According to their website, they use Oak, White Spruce, and Heat Treated Landes Pine… Exterior is Cedar…
I couldn’t agree more than the intro statement about there is no Baluchon tiny that I have not immediately loved (Is that you dear Natalie?) This one, more than many others. It is precisely built for me! I am afraid though that I might have to sacrifice the ladder and wonderful bookshelves for a storage stair….there appears to be almost NO storage for clothing! And to be honest I am too old for ladders. But otherwise it is gorgeous, perfect, beautiful, and I would move in tomorrow. I still read French pretty well, and have been able to find the price calculation on other Baluchons, so I will try again – if I can I will send another comment. I want this house!
Yes, it’s me! I just love Baluchon’s designs, but I understand the need for more storage!
