Lightweight tiny house provides a towable home for two

by • August 10, 2016 • No Comments

When it comes to tiny houses, the French do things their own way. Regulations need that towing mass does not exceed 3.5 metric tons (7,700 lb), so any tiny house firm needs to ponder carefully of what showcases it comes with. The Escapade tiny house, by Baluchon, walks this tightrope that successfully and provides amusing towable digs for up to two individuals.

  • The Escapade sits on a tiny-ish double axle 5.5 m (18 ft) trailer
  • The cedar siding is enlivened by black detailing and roof
  • As standard, the Escapade operates of a standard RV hookup
  • The tiny house contains just one sleeping loft

The Escapade sits on a 5.5 m (18 ft)-long double axle trailer and measures a total floorspace of 17.2 sq m (185 sq ft), that include loft. Weight comes in at 3,380 kg (7,451 lb), that include furniture, that is a lot less than many North American tiny houses, such as the Sheriff, for example, that weighs 17,000 lb (7,711 kg).

The exterior has a pretty contemporary appear, with the tiny house’s cedar siding enlivened by black detailing and odd glazing.

Entering via the covered porch, the ground floor is divided into a lounge area to the right, and a kitchen that comes with refrigerator, sink, and four-burner stove (but no oven) straight ahead. Next to the kitchen is a dining area, while walking to the end of the home reveals a bathroom with shower and toilet. A storage space staircase leads up to a loft sleeping area.

Considering its relatively tiny in dimensions dimensions, Escapade’s interior layout seems well idea out. The dining area seems decently-proportioned, as does the kitchen and bedroom, with just the lounge maybe a little too tiny.

As standard, the Escapade operates of a standard RV hookup. Similar to Marjolein Jonker’s tiny house, its insulation is sheep’s wool, and LED lighting is installed throughout. The Escapade is sold as a turnkey version, that include furniture, for €42,500 (roughly US$47,500).
