This 82-square-foot tiny house functions as a comfortable holiday home for a family of three

French tiny house company Baluchon was tasked with the job of creating a small house for the comfort of a family on a fishing trip in Rhône-Alpes, France. The 3.3 x 2.3-metre tiny home may be a small house, but it’s undeniably a comfortable and exceptionally well thought out space for the average couple or small family.

The tiny home is set upon a single-axle trailer with cedar cladding and aluminium accents. Its spruce frame keeps it light, while the cotton, linen, and hemp insulation means it remains warm and cosy year-round.

What’s more, it’s lightweight and easy to tow at just 1,600kg. With a seven-hour B96 training course under the owner’s belt as per French regulations, it’s ready to go anywhere the average vehicle can.
