It’s amazing how unique Baluchon builds are, but how similar each one feels!

This giant window lets in so much natural light and gives you plenty to see too.

There’s a shelf above the oversized farmhouse-style sink which I love. This shelf comes into play later in the office loft, too. It’s a spot for your feet when in desk mode, believe it or not. See it in action further down below.

There’s plenty of storage inside the staircase.

A fan of contemporary architecture and Scandinavian design, David wanted his tiny house to have a clean look, with sharp edges and large openings.

The Tiny house Sauvage has a very bright interior. A large majority of the furniture was made with three-ply ash panels, a hard and fairly light wood. The table has a solid ash top with natural edges. The latter can be placed in several places in the living room, just like the armchair, to bring modularity to the room. A wood stove is also installed in this room, to heat the house on winter days. A row of low cabinets under a large window will soon house David’s turntable and speakers.

The angled staircase includes a good number of storage niches while providing comfortable access to the bedroom upstairs.

The kitchen, for its part, is made up of two pieces of furniture which face each other and which house an oven, hobs, a refrigerator, clay blocks, a large sink, an electric hot water tank and various compartments of storage.

The bathroom is located at the very end of the tiny house. It is accessed through a custom-made ash door. Inside this room, there are dry toilets with stainless steel bucket and shavings compartment, an 80x80cm shower, a washbasin cabinet, as well as a wardrobe cabinet.

Finally, the bedroom on the mezzanine has a 140x190cm bed, as well as a desk (with legs crossing the joists!) and a small openwork balustrade in solid ash.

The Tiny house Sauvage is the main home of David, who installed it on his land in Mayenne.

    Funny how Baluchon homes have always been beautiful. Yet this design just doesn’t do it for me.

    I found this Baluchon model very beautiful…the ceiling heights and the wonderful windows. Knowing all those things will cause me to spend more money that I might want to for the otherwise basic house that is shown, I am afraid I have to say I am siding with Eric and saying it is not for me, unlike virtually every other Baluchon I have seen. I’m sure this was built to taste for the owner, and I am also sure they are delighted!

    Kathy I totally agree with you… there’s something that doesn’t do it for me either. I can’t pinpoint it but…
