They're just 3 meters (9.8 feet) by 3 meters and just about as high. They'd make great tiny homes, but these portable cube prefabs- they can be moved on a flatbed (in 2 parts) and installed with a forklift- are being used across France as rural hotels.
Carré d'étoiles translates to "Box of stars" and this vacation prefab was designed for stargazing, with a large domed skylight just feet above the lofted bed.
It's less than 100 square feet, but it sleeps four (platform and sofa beds) and includes a full kitchen, sitting area, a bathroom, a shower, plus storage and shelving.
In this video, Caroline of the Carrés d'étoiles de la Paleine in Le Puy-Notre-Dame, France shows us her star cubes.
