“Rebellious” Patricia & Jean-François Choose Tiny Living in France


“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!

    I am always impressed by the feeling that Tiny Homes designed by Baluchon, give.

    Really nice and pleasing to the eyes. It’s very basic, but the way it is finished gives it a very unique style. I love the loft roofline and view from the window. Great tiny house!

      Nice clean look but with pops of color to keep it from being dull. Never could I have imagined liking black in the kitchen but the sink alone is exquisite. And I love the bathroom. This one is a winner 🏆!
