Modern Tiny House with Hidden Bathroom & Space Saving Furniture – Full Tour

We met up with Catherine and Pascal from Ma Maison Logique ( to see their latest brilliant tiny house design. Our video of their first tiny house (the cutest tiny house ever) is our most popular video and we didn’t know how they could possibly top it. But they have!

The Novio is their latest tiny house design measuring 210 square feet. It has clever space saving hidden features, like a composting toilet in a drawer, and a ladder tucked away in the wall, and many extra clever and thoughtful touches, like a skylight in the loft for stargazing, and massive windows in the living room to take in the beautiful Saint Lawrence River view.

The modern minimalist interior design is stunning with white walls and untreated wood storage drawers and closets.

The lego style tiny home is a guest house that has access to electricity year round so they’ve installed 2 small electric baseboard heaters and high performing insulation. To manage humidity without losing heat, they installed a heat recovery air exchange ventilator (HRV).

  2. rapunzel eh?

    not sure i'd have the toilet in the same closet as my clothes… i get the 'use of space', but c'mon… maybe put all the cleaning products etc above it. and that bedroom with the skylight must get ROASTING in the direct sun.

    I've seen 30 seconds and I am already in love. Looks clean, cozy, inviting and clever. Love the wood and the whites.

    Edit: 3 things I don't like. 1 if you need to go to the toilet at night you use the ladder and you'll need to tuck it away to be able to open the toilet drawer. 2 the eating table is too far away (and i would want to clean it completely each time before use). But I love the esthetic of the house, so welcoming and open. 3 why is the fridge so visible? In Europe fridges (and dishwashers) are always covered by the same panel as the other drawers and doors in the kitchen. Why would you give an ugly appliance like a boring fridge all this attention?

    Overall an elegant and efficient design, especially the compact furniture such as the ladder and desk (the table being multi-purpose is great). I agree that the toilet being under the clean clothes is a definite turn-off. And the ladder is not convenient if you have to use the toilet in the middle of the night. The windows are lovely.

    If not mistaken the deck appeared larger than the mini house ,did I missed something why not utilize some of that space..The toilet really? different strokes for different folks

    Lovely build. Great appointments right up to the toilet. I would have said that to have a toilet like that is a personal choice. However but to have it as a guest house and a toilet in a bucket is certainly different. Maybe in Quebec things are different

    This dose have some ideas I haven't see before. I like the roll a way table the counter space. I think the sink might be a little small for my taste. But if it works for the homeowner good for them. It is a nice house. Thanks.

    A guest house is not a tiny house but simply a holiday home… love the skylight, yet it is of no importance if she only shows it as a design feature instead of the owner showing his/her usage of that feature. Even though the house is physically there, it remains a theoretical exercise. Too bad.

  9. Michelle L Cinkel

    Donโ€™t like it one bit to plain and I donโ€™t want a bucket for a toilet not only that thereโ€™s drawers Wright above the toilet the smell of toilet getting in my olothes no way not even a composting toilet were not from the mid century

    Very sleek design and having detracting dangling lamp cords. The bathroom had quite a few innovative design elements; however, would switch the shower and toilet so as to put distance between cooking and crapping and so that the ladder [during use] wouldn't be in the way of the toilet.
