Inspired by the tiny house movement in North America, a French craftsman set out to create a lightweight, mobile tiny home smaller than the typical tiny house. The result is the Cahute, a beautiful cabin on wheels with only 10.5 square meters of living space (just over 113 square feet). The home is half the length and one third the weight of most tiny homes, making it exceptionally mobile while conserving fuel and resources.
The beautiful teal exterior of the home complements the muted colors of the poplar wood-lined interior. The atmosphere of this tiny house is comfortably suited for a variety of uses, from occasional weekend camping to full time living.
Despite the minuscule size, many features are packed into this adorable living space. The kitchen holds a fold-down table with storage shelves between two windows. Opposite this dining area, a sink and stovetop provide a cooking space beneath additional storage cabinets.
The bathroom has a rustic little sink and a toilet. Though the bathroom is very small, it manages to accommodate shelving, cabinet space, and a small countertop area.
A ladder leads up to the loft sleeping area, which accommodates a bed for an individual or couple. The loft skylight provides additional natural lighting and a cozy place to enjoy surrounding views.
You can install it in your back yard to host your family and friends, or even seasonally experiment hosting in bed & breakfast. Certified self-caravan, you can even decide to make it your primary residence, in movement, or on any piece of land, constructible or not.
The Cahute is available for rent, or you can buy a custom-built version for yourself. Visit the Cahute website to see more of this little home and their other services, including workshops in tiny house building and eco construction.
Our tiny house is without any doubt the first of its kind in France: Issued from the Tiny House movement, yet differentiating itself with its reduced dimensions and a close tie with the traditions of wildlife camping. The importance given to its autonomy and its easy moving has been at the heart of its conception, in order to make it the ideal solution for accommodation in natural, isolated or ecologically fragile sites.
