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.

Kitoko Studio architects in France have decided to take this old “maid room” in Paris and redesign it into a transforming 86 sq. ft. micro apartment studio.

Normally spaces such as these are so small that people end up using them as storage spaces but with some smart design concepts it has been turned into a nice and affordable living space in France’s capital.

Sliding doors and cabinets reveal a sleeping loft, storage spaces, a pullout staircase, a wardrobe, dining table, and more. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

This one of a kind 688 sq. ft. transforming apartment is located in the Bastille district of Paris called the Bastille St. Nicolas Loft.

It has two bedrooms, one bathroom and can sleep up to four people comfortably.

Inside you’ll find hidden storage areas, sliding walls, raised wooden floors, and more.

An office area is available by pulling out part of a wall which gives you a functional desk.

This small apartment is available for sale as I write this for an asking price of 650,000 euros. It’s also currently available as a vacation rental. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below.

I thought you might also like this tiny Paris apartment that was renovated using CNC milled plywood.

The design was created by Coudamy Architects then the plywood was cut using CNC machines and then put together in the house. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Take a look at what the apartment looks like inside and then watch the entire video tour and interview with the dweller below.
