"Bay Tree" Tiny House

Nestled in the picturesque far north of NZ, this tiny 'bach' (holiday home) has to have one of New Zealand's most spectacular views. Painted throughout, with a front and back door the house is open and airy. The bathroom is a generous size, with plenty of counter space, a laundry hamper and washing machine. There is even a second shower outdoors to wash off that sand after a swim at the secluded beach just metres away. The tiny house can comfortably accomodate four with the possibility of more by adding a fold-out couch. The cladding is insulated vinyl weatherboards, in Aviator Green, the first we've done in this colour. It blends beautifully with the surrounding Pōhutukawa's onsite. With a 32 amp power supply onsite the tiny house has the luxury of an electric oven with ceramic top. The kitchen also features full size appliances and plenty of storage. Both lofts were designed with child safety in mind. Floor to ceiling barriers and baby gates make the lofts a child friendly space. This stunning tiny house will be a sanctuary for family and friends to enjoy.

"I love my tiny house Everything about it is perfect. It is remarkably spacious especially the bathroom and height and openness in the kitchen lounge area. We bought it for our beach property and it is a fully functional and delightful bach, quintessential NZ style with all the mod cons in a compact neat design" - Juliet. "The whole experience with Build Tiny through design, build and delivery has been very easy even in these difficult times. Everyone we have dealt with has been incredibly helpful with ideas to guide us to the final product. We are really excited about the next steps of getting ourselves set up and enjoying our time at the beach" - Mike
