Stunning tiny house features inverted loft space with lounge upstairs and kids’ room on main floor

Tiny home living often seems like it’s a couple’s dream living arrangement. Although, French tiny house company Baluchon is here to show you that tiny home living with children is possible.

Valhalla is one of their many popular designs, and this one, in particular, is home to Léna, Lambert, and their son Isaac. It features an inverted loft space, an upstairs lounge, and a child’s bedroom on the main floor. There is also more to this tiny home than meets the eye, as you are about to find out below.

Five open support beams are present on each end of the house, along with two panoramic windows and three circular ones. Adding a burst of color is the blue front door, roof, and window frames.

Even though Valhalla looks small on the outside, looks can be deceiving. Thanks to single-slope architecture and extra height partnered with roof ladders, a family’s everyday needs are well catered for inside this home.

In the heart of the tiny home, this kitchen also has everything a family needs to cook up a storm.

At the end of the cabinets is a staircase that offers access to a mezzanine floor used as a living room.

Above the office space is a seamless set of floating stairs leading up to the master bedroom. The first two steps are located under the desk so that traffic isn’t obstructed.

A window stretches from one end to the other to allow plenty of natural light, while the light wooden walls add to the brightness. This bedroom is accessible via the floating staircase from the office area, and it has plenty of room for a double bed and a removable oak nightstand.

Living space is located just above the kitchen on a second layer, which sits adjacent to the third storey leading to the master bedroom.

Plenty of natural light is also let in with three windows on either end.

This has two wardrobes and can fit two children’s beds or a double bed. Thanks to vibrant yellow curtains in place, it can be separated from the rest of the tiny home.
