Small, compact house with lots of extra space on the upper floor

French company Baluchon’s latest tiny house is only 6m long, but serves as a full-time home for a mother and daughter.

In her compact interior there is space for a living room with a sofa bed for guests.

The company has also added a net on the top floor which provides additional space to relax.

The house is called Tiny House Sïana (named after the owner’s daughter, spelled backwards) and is based on a standard two-axle trailer.

It’s finished in cedar with aluminum accents and features a wood frame and a blend of cotton, linen, and hemp insulation. Power comes from a standard RV-style hitch.

Visitors enter the house through the living room. There is a sofa (which turns into a double bed for guests), a dining area with stools and storage.

A wood-burning stove provides warmth. A staircase integrated into the storage room provides access to the master bedroom, which is a typical loft bedroom of a small house with a low ceiling. It has a double bed, storage space and opening windows.

The second bedroom is located on the opposite side of the house and is accessible from the master bedroom via the net, which Baluchon says also serves as an additional space for reading and relaxing.

Downstairs the kitchen is basic but functional. It contains an oven with four propane burners, a small refrigerator, a sink, cabinets and some shelves. The bathroom is adjacent and has a shower and toilet inside.

No word on the cost of Tiny House Sïana, but the company says its homes start at around €65,000 ($78,000).
