This Japanese-inspired tiny house on wheels was custom-built for a Baluchon client who needs a home to travel with him for work around the United Kingdom. He loves Japanese architecture and the Bonzai Tiny House reflects that with a curved roof, red and black accents, and a screen door.
The home is just under 15 feet long to make it lightweight and easy to tow for travel. Even with that short height, the home has no loft, but rather a pull-out bed mat that lies on top of the living room floor at night. The kitchen is elevated to allow for lots of drawer storage underneath, and the wet bathroom is open to the rest of the home to keep the space from feeling claustrophobic.

Japanese-Inspired Tiny House Built for Travel
The curved roof is meant to mimic the irimoya roofs of Japan.
I love how the home blends Baluchon style with Japanese influence so well.
Floating shelves provide storage in the living room.
A flip-up table provides a space for eating/working.
The raised kitchen allows for huge storage drawers.
Look at all the space in there!
His bed mat tucks into the cubby to be pulled out at night.
The kitchen is compact, but so functional!
A large drawer with a glass front.
Handy extra counterspace pulls out when needed.
The kitchen has a great mixture of closed and open storage.
The mini wood stove is the first thing you see when walking in.
A projector screen pulls down for movie nights.
Here’s the shower stall with a drying rack for clothing.
A dry toilet finishes the bathroom.
This is a such a beautiful window.
A ladder takes you up to the rooftop deck.
What a fun spot to hang out.
The Bonzai Tiny House is built on a trailer that is only 4.5m long. Its reduced size will give its owner Josselin greater mobility, the goal of this habitat being to follow its owner through his professional projects in England. Thanks to his weight gain, Josselin will also be able to leave all his belongings inside on the go.
