"Bitser" Tiny House

Every now and then we end up with surplus building materials and spare tiny house components, so we decided to make a tiny house using the 'bits' and 'pieces' we had lying around... hence the 'Bitser' tiny house was born. An existing set of windows and 'leftover' kitchen cabinetry informed the design and layout and we ended up with a fully-featured yet very small tiny house! At only 6m long it's on the smaller side compared to our usual builds, yet has all the features you've come to expect from our work. For the first time, we put the main door at the back of the tiny house, saving crucial wall space for everything else. We're rapt with the light and airy look and feel we were able to achieve with this one. We had initially planned to sell the Bitser on completion, but our in-house designer Gina fell in love with it during construction and decided to buy it off us for herself before anyone else got the chance! If you love it too, get in touch and we'll build you a customised replica!
