The reverse approach

Baluchon’s mission is clear: extract as much living space as possible from their compact designs. The Ellèbore achieves this by disrupting the traditional layout. Imagine a home where the bedroom is on the ground floor, leaving room for a versatile living space above. It’s like a little house doing a handstand.

Exterior aesthetics

The Ellèbore measures a modest 20 feet in length and sits on a sturdy double-axle trailer. Its contemporary exterior features red cedar cladding with subtle gray aluminum accents. From the outside it looks like any other tiny house, but step inside and you’ll discover its charming country charm.

Interior Features

To one side of the tiny house is a small kitchen with a sink, fridge/freezer, microwave, electric mini-oven, gas cooktop and electric water heater. It also has plenty of shelves, cabinets and a wood stove to keep you warm.

The bedroom is accessed through a sliding door. It is a comfortable sleeping area with a low beamed ceiling. The downstairs location and small door may evoke a touch of claustrophobia, but they serve their purpose well.

To access the second level, you’ll need to climb a set of steps built into the storage, which can be neatly stored away when not needed.

Suddenly you are in the living room – upstairs. The ceiling height is generous and the large windows flood the space with natural light. The sofa also doubles as a comfortable bed, accommodating two people.
