Love the big round window on the end of the home.

What a gorgeous entrance! It feels so grand.

Come take a seat on the big comfy couch in the living room.

Here’s a look at the dining area with the wood-burning stove.

I love the vertical wood paneling with diverse colors.

You can sit up to three at the little table for dinner.

These are the steps to the loft. Good view of the actual space.

Nice floating shelves for displaying your books and treasures.

Enjoy some tea and coffee while gazing outside at the horses.

Loft bedroom fits a double bed and the roof allows for head room.

I like the nice large windows that allow light into the space.

There’s plenty of storage in the steps and that bookcase.

Simple kitchen with sink, stove top and mini fridge.

The wooden counter tops are just gorgeous. Love the look.

Get extra counter space when you need it.

Dry toilet with handy storage shelves above it.

Large shower stall and mini vanity shelf under the mirror.

The details in this home are exquisite!

I like the awning here on the front to guard from direct rainfall.

Ah, symmetry! It’s great for that inner OCD 🙂

Beautiful home in a beautiful location near beautiful animals!

    Beautiful, love this little home except for the outhouse style toilet. The window at the back is very nice, and also the Kitchen area. Don’t care for a loft bedroom so would add 8 feet for a main floor bedroom. Dreaming.

    I am really more of a small house kind of person than a tiny house person, but this tiny place is really lovely.

    I would get rid of the wood burning stove. I would have a mini split put in this house. The composting toilet would go and put in a flush toilet. Remove shelve and towel bar and put small sink in the bathroom. Just my Thoughts.

    I love this tiny house! I agree with Maria that a sink in the bathroom is a must. I would keep the wood burner, though, as it is perfect for the winter and logs are freely available in rural France. The sofa is well placed for the summer, but in the winter I would swap it round with the table and chairs…..the heat travels well from a log burner, but I love watching the flames. We cook on our log burner, so you could keep an eye on your meal as well.

    It’s the nicest 20ft I’ve seen so far. I too would remove the wood burning stove and replace with cabinets. I would add 4 ft for extra space in the living room and a sink in the bathroom. I would replace the composting toilet with an RV toilet or flush toilet. That entrance is gorgeous.

    Love the beautiful detailing of this wee house! I’m fine with the composting toliet, but would want a sink, and would raise the roof of bedroom. Too old to crawl into bed!

    I too would get rid of that wood burner and a sink in the bathroom is a must. I would add some footage so i could have a bedroom. No loft for me. To old for that.

    I will agree the company does some fine work in design. I peeked at their website and They Do Not Ship to America. They only work with local nations since this company Is In France. Now if you can find a builder in America and see if they can come up with a reasonable price for same visual design….

    How is the shower done ? The wall ? Because wood and water ?

      Anything can be water proofed, which is how they can have wood boats, Saunas, hot tubs, buckets, cooking utensils, decks, etc. The process of making a shower involves such water proofing. Like installing a molded fiberglass shell that contains everything or applying water proofing membrane over the walls before adding tile or other finishing for final appearance. There’s a lot of products available to do this in a variety of ways to prevent the water getting to anything it can damage. While just paint can provide a layer of protection for surfaces that don’t get directly wet, aside from the occasional splash… Thus how most bathrooms can have drywall and other materials that are also vulnerable to water damage.

      However, water itself isn’t actually harmful to wood and wood can absorb and give it off all the time and is the main reason wood moves seasonally. Rather, it’s the spores of fungus and mold that can take root and feed off the wood that is the potential problem as they just need the right temperature and prolonged moist environment to do damage.

      So it’s usually about just making the conditions inhospitable to the fungus and mold to prevent their growth. Thus how wood structures can last even centuries despite being exposed to rain, etc. Like there’s wood structures in Japan that are over 500 years old. So it’s less a problem of getting wet but rather how long they stay wet, thus being able to dry quickly can usually solve that issue.

      But it’s also about temperature, etc. as you can have a log at the bottom of rivers last centuries because the conditions at the bottom of the river are inhospitable to fungus and mold.

      It’s more the modern engineered wood products like Plywood, OSB, MDF, etc. that are directly vulnerable to water damage.

      If you’re in a humid environment or just producing a lot of steam then a good vent would be advisable but may not be a issue in very dry climates.

      While options like the wood stove produce dry heat, which reduces the interior humidity level, and the radiant heat spreads to everything within line of sight of the stove as well, just like the heat of the sun. So everything in the main space gets heated and it’s effective enough that you may need to leave some water to boil on the stove to keep the air from getting too dry… So lack of vents isn’t necessarily a problem, depending on the specific setup and location/conditions…
