Castel Meur

“Castel Meur is the name of this amazing house. She turns her back to the sea since 1861, the year of its construction, to protect it from violent winds during storms, that frequent this place. This tiny house was built at a time when building permits did not exist, where everyone could build her own way and give free rein to his imagination.” – translated from

Command Post

While this little command post at a Marina in France is not a house, it reminded me of fire tower-like tiny houses. Not exactly a warm and rustic timber frame fire tower but for those who like concrete and steel, a really nicely done little building.

Dans mon arbre

Dans mon arbre is a treehouse company in Grenoble, France. Each treehouse they build is one of a kind and designed for each individual tree and client. I was really impressed with all the different designs they’ve come up with so far and the high level of craftmanship. The treehouse pictured here is especially cool with shutters and awnings that open and close to help control the interior temperature. I first spotted this on Inhabitat.
