I don’t think I’ll ever tire of looking at Baluchon-built tiny homes. I only wish they were available state-side, but Baluchon only makes homes in France. This is a house they designed for a couple, which they named the “Ala Köl.”
It features an off-center ridgeline and a “glass wall” in the entry that lets in much-needed natural light. The living room has a couch and dining for four, and the kitchen has a sleek black sink, compact four-burner oven/stove and a mini-fridge. There’s a bathroom at the very end of the THOW, and a loft bedroom accessible via storage steps.
The coolest feature in this THOW is a wooden world map that reminds the couple of their many travels. Scroll down to take a tour of this beauty.
This is the Holz Hisla Tiny House on Wheels by Baluchon. Holz Hisla means “little wooden house” in Alsatian.
This 20ft tiny home is inspired by the emblematic architecture of Europe. It even has a small chimney and a tiny little porch to give you a covered entrance. There’s even a storage bench you can sit on to enjoy your view. The living room has a sofa and a wood stove so you can stay warm and cozy. The loft ladder is stored by the door. You can use the flip-up tables to dine and the built-in shelves for storage. The tables can dine up to four people comfortably or you can fold it down to free up space.
This is the Valhalla Tiny House by Baluchon in France.
The family moved into it only one month after their son was born.6 It features a main floor bedroom for their son, an elevated loft living area, desk space, a full kitchen, bathroom, and an upstairs master loft.
This Tiny House Tour in France is a guest post by Chris Wenban of Tiny Footprint
While spending time with family in Europe I was fortunate to find myself with a week to spare. I have a good friend in Paris and decided to be multi-functional (as all good tiny obsessives are) and arrange a tiny house tour in France, culminating in a tiny themed weekend in Paris.
Via the wonders of google I managed to find 2 tiny houses to stay in relatively close to each other to the west of Paris near Nantes, this also happens to be the home region of Baluchon who have been one of the key ground-breakers and tiny house builders in the movement in France. With a tiny hire car, a Renault Twizy, I left Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and headed west toward Bretagne (Brittany) and the Loire Valley, not to find castles, but to find tiny houses.

The tiny house The Little Prince is the first tiny house we make with a blanket and partial zinc cladding. Zinc is a durable material (life span of 80 to 100 years) waterproof, malleable and very aesthetic.1
