Expect to be wowed by the wonderful bathroom that fits in this unique tiny house

From the Quebec City region of Canada comes this handsome tiny house built by a company known as Minimaliste Houses, a name hardly straining for a translation, although their website is published in French and English. They can also be easily found on Facebook and Instagram.
This home, called Le Chene, is a beauty, with a 10-foot-wide glass patio door. It's 34 feet long and 10 feet wide, and has a built-in bedroom loft. With a total of 420 square feet, the home is surprisingly large for a house on wheels.

An appealing array of smart, crisp photographs also helps make this classy tiny home appear even larger. Let's take a look, but be forewarned: Le Chene is a stunner inside and out.
This shot from the bedroom loft sets up the tour nicely. You can see the stairs on the left-hand side of this shot (notice the banister). The kitchen has lots of floor space, cabinet space and windows. What you can't see is that the heating of this tiny home comes through the floor, so the heat is distributed equally throughout. There's also a wood stove for backup. La Chene "has the most complex heating system, radiant flooring, and its water is off the grid, even with a bathtub, with a very big 250-gallon integrated drinking water tank," Minimaliste Houses explains.
They've also made sure there's no risk of frozen pipes, even at minus 40 degrees.
Even with a coffee pot and a toaster, there's still plenty of counter space left for preparing meals. Compare this photo with the one above for the story of the table at the end of the kitchen. It folds up out of the way when not in use.
Here's the reverse view. This shot is taken from the living room area. Note the size of the wood stove — wow!
The stairs contain storage compartments right down to the floor. The bathroom, visible in this photo, includes a sliding "barn door," according to the company website.
The design choice to leave the tub plumbing outside adds an attractive, unique touch to the bathroom.
It's beginning to look like the company name Minimaliste might be changed to "Extravagant." For a tiny house, a bathroom large enough for a throw rug, let alone a vanity, is a rare treat.
You can never have too many shots of a bathroom — any argument there?​
Above the bathroom, under a slanted roof, is this sleeping loft.

Last but not least, the living room, converted here into a spare bedroom.

This tiny home is proof that keeping it simple still works. There's no great surprises in the layout, but it includes a terrific kitchen, a large master bedroom and, listen to this: A sound studio.
