We are a young couple (24-27 years old) who have decided to build Tiny Houses for one year now. We’ve just made our first Tiny house for a bookseller : “La librairie itinérante”. He and his Tiny House are now moving from place to place, mostly villages without books or forsaken by shops, to sell used books at middle price, and to tell storyies in the evening, free of charge, in the Tiny House. You just have to bring your slippers!

A tiny bookstore traveling throughout France. More info. here and here.

    I just love that a thing like this exists, let alone that this one is so adorable.

      I was having a hard time putting into words what I feel about this house, and you have said it perfectly.

    Love everything about this story. The tiny house, the idea of gathering people together, the love of books… the whole concept is just so cool. Thank you for sharing this.

    Finally, a tiny house that could hold all my books! I could live there as no place feels like home to me without a ton of books in it. Make the trailer a bit longer for an additional room and I’d have space for my craft stuff too. 😀

    I have often had fantasies of not only a tiny home, but a tiny shop I could travel to festivals and markets with. I have seen tiny shops on this site, but this is the most fully realized and most beautifully designed by far. Books, plants, a lot of light and a cat, what more could you ask for?

    According to the Facebook page, the price of this tiny shop/home to be built was 29000 Euro equals 32586.72:” 32.5k Excellent price. This was their first build and they gave him a break on the price if I read it correctly
    It also says ” keys in hand, with a sign, pontoon and awning included.” (I don’t think pontoon means in French what we think of with the word pontoon. I am guessing it means the steps-porch)
    the value of the shop is now 38500 Euro equals 43205 dollars. 43k. It weighs 3400 pounds. It actually appreciated. That’s nice to know. I hope the builders sell their plans.
