Tiny house hits the right note with built-in music studio
The latest tiny house by French firm Baluchon serves as residence and workspace to a composer, with the firm managing to squeeze a mini music studio into its living room. The home also boasts an upstairs balcony which – though not unheard of – is a definite rarity in a tiny house.
The towable home is named Tiny House Rhapsodie and reaches a total length of 6 m (19.6 ft). It's based on a double axle trailer and finished in cedar, with aluminum accenting. Power comes from a standard RV-style hookup and it comprises a timber frame, with a mixture of cotton, linen, and hemp insulation.
Visitors enter into the the living room, which is dominated by the owner's music gear. There's not a whole lot of space left over but Baluchon did somehow manage to shoehorn in a sofa and a folding dining table in there too. And there's also a projector installed for watching the owner's extensive movie collection.
The kitchen is nearby and includes a microwave, a two-burner propane-powered stove, fridge/freezer, sink, a washing machine, some shelving, plus a pull-out pantry. The bathroom is adjacent and is accessed by a door with a decorative ship-style porthole. It contains a shower, sink, and toilet.
There are two bedrooms in the Rhapsodie, both of which are reached by a removable ladder. They are connected by a small gangway and are typical tiny house-style bedroom lofts with low ceilings. A window from the main bedroom allows access to an outside balcony area, which is very small indeed, though still a nice addition.
We've no word on the price of this one, though Baluchon lists its prices for finished homes as around €65,000 - €85,000 (roughly US$78,000 - $102,000).
