The house sits on a double-axle trailer, and it’s finished in red cedar. For a striking contrast, the builder added a black door and black window frames. Chicorée’s interior oozes modern-rustic charm, featuring numerous wooden accents that go really well with the vibrant blue cabinetry. The owners, Julia and Vincent, wanted to have a cozy, welcoming dwelling with a relaxation corner. So the living room had to include a big sofa positioned right next to a large window. It’s the perfect spot to read, socialize, or admire the spectacular views.
The sofa also converts into a bed for two, turning the living room into a bedroom in a matter of minutes. It's a great addition to a tiny home like Chicorée since it provides an extra sleeping space for guests. This multi-use area also has some shelves for storage and a table that can be stored out of the way for more wiggle room. From there, the owners have access to a beautiful galley-style kitchen with blue cabinetry that stands out against the warm finish of the wooden countertops. The kitchen is quite simple, so it doesn’t have many appliances. Julia and Vincent didn’t want to include a refrigerator or an oven. Instead, they opted for a three-burner propane cooktop.
The bathroom is positioned at the front of the tiny home, and it’s surprisingly large. It has a generous shower and two cabinets that can be used to store away clothes, toiletries, and other belongings. There’s also a tall closet with open shelving that fits numerous baskets. The bathroom includes a dry toilet, a towel rack, and a big mirror. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have a sink.
But that’s not all. This 6-meter (19.6-ft) dwelling manages to squeeze inside a beautiful loft too. Owners can access it via custom-made mono-stringer stairs. The staircase adds a nice touch of modern flair, and it provides some room underneath that can be used to store out of the way different items that don’t have their own place inside the home.
This little workspace is separated from the kids’ bedroom by a custom partition wall. But it receives plenty of natural light since there are numerous windows on each side of the home. Because the "office" is in the loft, the skilled team from Baluchon put the desk above the living area to fit the low ceiling. This way, people will be able to use the floor as a seat and swing their feet over the edge of the loft.
