since its inception — circa 2000 — the tiny house movement has been offering affordable housing solutions that are ecologically friendly as well as a living style that advocates simplicity and minimalism. last week we saw a tiny house on wheels with a rising roof that revealed a second floor. for this week, we have la tête dans les étoiles (or head in the stars) by optinid, a tiny house featuring a sliding roof that opens up the bedroom to the sky.
designed by french builder optinid, la tête dans les étoiles tiny house is clad in spruce and measures 7.2-meters-long (23.6 feet). as for the interior, it includes all the necessary space for single or double occupancy; a living area with a daybed and folding desk, a folding dining table capable of seating three people, a kitchen with a sink, a propane-powered cooker, a fridge and some limited storage space. at the other end you can find the bathroom with a shower and sink, and a separate toilet.
the bedroom is located on the second level and can be accessed through a staircase. equipped with a sliding roof, the owner can unlock it and manually move it to open it and spend the night under the stars as well as under the sun. as for electricity, the house is powered by a solar panel array and it collects rainwater that is then pumped and filtered for drinking.
the optinid tiny house costs €54,000 ($62,500) but if lucky, you can go now and ask for a reduced price of €47,000 (around US$54,000).
