The French Vardo Tiny House: Built for Glamping

This post contains affiliate links.

You might remember my article that was posted June 20, 2014 titled “DYI Bow Top Vardo Office Cabin” here on TinyHouseTalk.com. In it I was showing the Vardo that I built. Well since that time I have fallen head over heels in love with the Vardo concept and have created more of them and I am in the process of building a business around the adorable yet functional tiny structures.

French Vardo Tiny House Built for Glamping by Blackfox Glamping Lodges

Cozy and warm French Vardo in the winter woods

Blackfox Glamping Lodges is a collaboration between myself and two industrious young men. Jason, and Alex Reynolds. This partnership is designed around the Glamorous Camping trend that has emerged because of the advent of online B&B services, and we wish to provide incredibly adorable structures to that market. And of course to anyone who wishes to have an amazing place for their guest to stay.

Our first offering is what we call “The French Vardo”, and it can be custom built to fit your needs with options like Metal or canvas roofs, any size beds, choice of colors, off grid solar systems, and many others. At present, we are not planning to incorporate bath facilities since most of the intended applications will utilize communal baths. However we do build in room for composting toilets.

Though the structure is finished we still have fabric items that still need to be installed in the unit pictured, So, I have omitted interior pictures and will update them very shortly. I am very excited to hear your thoughts on our endeavor.

Thank You, and a big thank you to Alex and tinyhousetalk.com.

    I love the angle of the walls coming from the sole. I am wondering what that angle would be if the Ledges arch roofing was used out to 8’6″ shaped like the Red unit on skids

    You would use a 90 degree angle to a point above the seating and backrest height and then create two medieval arches to form the roof. If you used the 15 degree from the sole of 8′ ft 6″ inches you would end up with a width of nearly 11′ ft. This one is built on a 5 x 12 sole/ floor base and is 7′ ft 8″ inches at the widest point. Thank you for the comment. Blackfox
