This tiny house on wheels was designed for a young couple. The Lilas is the first house on wheels that has been installed completely legally in Quebec. Before the designing began, this couple had two priorities in mind: the inclusion of a specific wood fireplace, and the smallest bathroom possible to maximize space for the kitchen and living room.
The living area is at the front and overlooks the front door. There is a space for a custom TV cabinet, full-sized sofa bed, an entrance wardrobe and hooks for coats. The customers wanted to incorporate a wood fireplace which gives a lot of character to the house and separates the kitchen from the dining room.
KITCHEN – DINING ROOM
As mentioned before, the kitchen was one of these couples’ priorities and that’s why it is huge. The workspace is so big that three people can cook without any problem. The size of appliances is closer to that of a conventional home than the equipment we see in recreational vehicles.
The bedroom is accessible by climbing the storage stairs. The cherry steps with big landing, the large drawers, and the wardrobe make this staircase a work of art. The height of the loft is 4 feet in the highest part, which makes sitting on the bed comfortable. There are a large window and a storage cabinet with sliding doors too.
Don’t let the small bathroom in the Lilas fool you! Despite its size, it’s a very functional one. The shower is 32 x 32 big with imitation tile panels and the ceiling is cedar stained and varnished. Only with lifting the double bottom wardrobe part you can easily access the water inlet, the instantaneous propane water heater, and the different filtration systems.
