Simple Living in his Bonsai Tiny House ​

This post contains affiliate links.

Yann, his wife, and their two daughters love spending time in their getaway cabin, a tiny house on wheels he purchased from three friends who built the home as a fun project. He spent about $55,000 on the 13-foot tiny home, and has it parked in South France, about a two-hour bike ride from where their permanent home is located.

The house has all the necessities, including a small bathroom, a kitchen with a two-burner cook top for their vegetarian meals, and even a handy bike rack for his bamboo bike. His girls especially love sleeping in the netted loft above the couch. Which feature of this space do you love the most?

  • Yann purchased his tiny house from three guys who built the home as a passion project. They wrote loving notes on the beams of the home during construction.
  • He, his wife and their two daughters use the home as a vacation home/getaway from their house that’s a two-hour bike ride away.
  • Yann works at a university teaching about sustainability, permaculture and bicycle-riding!
  • The home can sleep up to six, with three people in one loft, two in the netted loft, and one on the couch downstairs.
  • There’s a micro bathroom inside the tiny house, as well as a compact kitchen.

    I love this! It’s so refreshing seeing a real tiny house with all the craftsman type unique design elements and the cuteness factory. It’s lovely and cozy and welcoming. I love it!
