This simple but somewhat colorful tiny house on wheels by Baluchon serves as the primary home for its owner and child in Brittany, France. Though it sports compact dimensions, even by tiny house standards, the firm managed to squeeze in some notable features, including a bathtub, a netted play area, and a relatively spacious-looking kitchen and dining area.

The Tiny House Planedennig (which translates as "little planet" in Breton), is finished in cedar and is based on a double-axle trailer. It has a total length of 6 m (19.6 ft), which for comparison is almost half the length of Minimaliste's Magnolia V6 from last year.

Visitors enter the home into the kitchen, which contains a miniature wood-burning stove that should be more than capable of heating the small interior, plus a dining table, a two-burner propane-powered stove, an oven, a fridge/freezer, sink, and shelving.

Nearby lies the living room. This has a small side table and a sofa bed for guests, though it'll be a bit of a squeeze. Rounding off the ground floor, the living room connects to a bathroom, which contains a toilet, some storage space, and a very small hip bath and shower.

The bedrooms are reached by a staircase that's integrated into the kitchen counter. They consist of two simple tiny-house-style loft bedrooms with very little headroom. The main bedroom is reached first and has a double bed for the parent. From here, a net play area connects this space onto the child's bedroom, which looks very compact.

Though its size is well-suited to travel, there's no off-grid tech installed and the tiny house requires a standard RV-style hookup to get power and water. We've no word on the price of this model, though Baluchon's tiny houses start at €80,000 (roughly US$90,000).

Net floor and children's toys: a combination that could not possibly go wrong.

Let’s be honest about that net “play area” in a tiny home of this size, it will become a dumping ground for storing stuff that does not fit elsewhere. And the only access to the child’s bed is thru the master bed. “Mommy, I have to tinkle.”

...these 'homes' have becomes ridiculously over priced.

Make it all electric with battery power backup for a week stored under floor between support rails. Electric stove. Electric heat pump and AC

I would not want to try and sleep upstairs in the loft if it's warm outside. Even with the windows open, if it's hot out, you would slowly baste in your own sweat

90,000? that's nuts!

All show and only suitable for people with minimal possessions. Nowhere for fuel for the stove, or for a broom, shoes, etc. Forget coats or dresses. Or even spare bedding and towels. And no gutters means a wet entry when it's raining. But a triumph of salesmanship!

Should be mandatory that every tiny home come as a package with a 8' X 12" storage shed, to be assembled after the first week once you realize you have no place to put your stuff.
