"Cyril" The Tiny house

Introducing Cyril the Tiny House, lovingly named after our clients Grandfather, who was a tiny house enthusiast from way back. This home is jam packed full of unique and practical features. Many of which have been designed with 'Elivs' and 'Snacks' (our clients covid rescue cats) in mind. Slightly wider and therefore heavier than our usual builds, this tiny house feels luxuriously spacious. The additional width makes way for an L-shaped kitchen, and also an alternate loft layout where you can walk right along the foot of the bed. The extra space is also utilised in the bathroom with deep pull out storage, lots of bench-space, and a natures-head composting toilet.

"The team at Build Tiny ARE THE BEST!!!! We got Gina to design Cyril our Tiny House over the first lockdown with all the best intentions that we would then take away her epic design and build it ourselves with our extensive 3 day tiny house building course experience. Sure, we probably could have built something, but we are so so so glad we decided to instead take the last available slot Build Tiny had for the year to build it for us - zero regrets. Even with our 13+ design revisions Gina was dreamy to work with and always did her best to accommodate our requests - cat bridges, bathroom redesigns, expanding bifold doors to max width. Even the promotional video tour Andy & his cat performed in was solid gold quality (watch it). Living in Cyril is like being on holiday every day and we couldn't be happier with what the team has built for us and will always remain friends and fans of the company." - Summer & Jason
