Elise’s Custom Baluchon Tiny House For Full-time Living


Elise has a stunning new tiny house, built for her by Baluchon in France. It’s her full-time abode, parked in Loire-Atlantique. She chose a loft bedroom for herself, as well as another loft for reading.

The downstairs has a comfortable couch with a wood-burning stove, as well as a kitchen that has a mini-fridge and mini-oven. Could you live in this tiny house?

    It’s very pretty. I love Baluchon’s style.

    There are a lot of things I like about this – its certainly visually appealing – but the slanted portion of those shelves seem like a waste of wall space in a small kitchen.

    I have yet to see a Baluchon model that I would not move right into! The company’s comfort level with always being able to give you everything needed for comfort, space and beauty in just 20 feet is unparalleled. Since I can’t go live in France, let’s ask Baluchon if they would consider selling the laser-cut models of their homes! So cute!

      Lovely THOW. There are so many delightful designs and things — and people — that come from France. In my view, the only group that can consistently compete with the French for exquisite design are the northern Italians…. though Americans come up with some lovely designs, too. Very nice usable tiny stove/oven. I very much enjoy the various postings on TinyHouseTalk, though my comments at times appear to annoy other contributors. These comments are respectfully submitted.

    finishes are really nice but a bedroom with absolutely no storage or even a place to put your phone by the electrical outlet doesn’t make much sense to me – the stove/oven is fine but there is no place next to it to set something down which should always be available when cooking/baking no matter the size of the home. One cupboard/closet in the bathroom doesn’t seem like enough storage for clothing/bath necessities/cleaning supplies etc. Is the wood stove the only source of heat or is the dark rectangular unit near the door a heater? A small ceiling fan would make sense and the loft bedroom windows seem to have hinges on the bottom so they open inward over the bed which could be a problem while in bed. Seems like sliders would make more sense in this small home just for ventilation and safety – it is cute but I wouldn’t find it really liveable for long – just a Senior Citizen that has lived in a lot of spaces over the years and knows what she needs for comfort and necessity – perhaps if I were much younger and just starting out.

      Yes, that’s a heater on the wall…

      While something to keep in mind is there’s a more strict max weight limit for most other countries besides US and Canada… So there’s a limit of how much can be in one of these as every bit of weight has to be accounted for and kept below the limit…

      Norms in countries like France are also usually much more minimal in general than in the US and Canada…

      Btw, there is a little fan on one of the upper shelves right by and just above the entrance door…
