This is the story of Ody, a 39-year-old Mercedes 307D van conversion that the couple originally bought in Germany. The couple, Dana and Lou, taught themselves how to convert the van thanks to videos on YouTube.

It took them 6 months to complete, and now they’re traveling Europe and living out their van life dream. Dana and Lou named their van Ody and outfitted it with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and plenty of smart storage. What do you think? Could you see yourself living and traveling in a van like this?

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 Tiny House Tour in France is a guest post by Chris Wenban of Tiny Footprint

On my last tiny tour (https://tinyhousetalk.com/tiny-house-tour-in-france/) I was disappointed to have missed out on a couple of tiny stops, luckily I had the chance to make another visit back to Paris so here we have Tiny House Tour France Part Deux!

Barrel Tiny House, La Brosse

I set off in my tiny red Fiat 500 to find the Roulotte (Caravan) in La Brosse, a tiny hamlet near the ancient village of Janvry, south-east of Paris. There are 3 ‘Barrel’ houses in the grounds of the Domaine de Marguerite and this idyllic place is certainly an alternative to the hustle and bustle of central Paris if you want something a little different. I had seen this tiny house in tinyhousetalk.com previously so thanks to Alex for the tip!

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.

Skool and the Gang are Quentin, Xana, Alex, and Alix are two globe-trotting couples from the UK and Europe who decided to apply for working holiday visas in Canada so they could build, live, and travel in a school bus for two years.

They bought this school bus for just $5000 CAD and have converted it using mostly free, donated, and reclaimed materials including a lot of pallet wood.
