Mirasol tiny house makes space for guests and good times

One of the challenges of downsizing is that it’s very awkward to have friends over. However, despite its compact size, Baluchon’s latest model, the Mirasol, ensures its owner’s social life won’t suffer thanks to a guest sleeping area and a kitchen that opens onto an outdoor bar.

The Mirasol is based on a double-axle trailer and has a length of just 6 m (20 ft). It’s clad in red cedar, with aluminum accenting, and its interior is finished in ash and spruce. Power comes from a standard RV-style hookup.

Though pictured here without it, the home had a terrace running along its exterior installed after the photos were taken. This combines with the drop-down bar outside to extend living space considerably and allow the owner to host parties. Additionally, the kitchen features operable windows, making it easier to pass through food and drinks. The exterior also has a small detachable pantry on one wall for keeping food and drinks cool outside.

Inside the house the glazing throughout is generous and it looks like a relatively airy and light-filled home for a such a compact European model. The living room is taken up by a large L-shaped sofa bed which doubles as a guest sleeping area, plus there’s a little storage space.

The kitchen itself includes a breakfast bar with stool seating for two, as well as a sink, oven, two-burner propane-powered stove, and a small fridge, plus quite a lot of cabinetry and a little shelving. This area connects to a small bathroom with a shower and a toilet.

The Mirasol has just one bedroom, which is reached by a removable ladder and is a typical tiny house loft with a low ceiling and a double bed.

We’ve no word on the exact price of the Mirasol but Baluchon’s models start at €85,000 (roughly US$91,000).
