"Daisy Vera" Tiny House

An adorable, simple little tiny house designed for 1. It's name ...'Daisy Vera' ... came about by combining the given names of the client's 2 grandmothers. Links to family heritage are a bit of a theme for this tiny house. It has a double sleeping loft plus a single loft to be used for storage. Two unique features of this home are the heirloom stained glass window provided by the client and the innovative slide-out storage unit in the bathroom. The client provided us with the piece of coloured glass that was handed down to her from within her family. We then had it encased into a double glazed unit and installed with the rest of the window. This is the third house that the window has been installed into. The client also supplied a Turkish decorative pendant light that we installed for her in the lounge. The bathroom vanity was also supplied by the client, she had it made to her specification by Variant Spaces, a cabinet maker in Auckland that specialises in tiny house cabinetry. The client opted to go for an off grid solar package with Lithium batteries to keep her going no matter where she's parked up.

"Hi Gina, Amy, Jason and the team at Build Tiny, I am so happy to be in my tiny house I've named the Daisy Vera Tiny Home after both my grandmother's and all is working out wonderfully. I will (and have) recommended Build Tiny to anyone who is interested in tiny living. Thanks to all the team at Build Tiny for making the process from start to finish a joy it was great seeing the photo updates and progress from week-to-week and also quick email responses to any questions. The hardest part I think was watching it be put on the section. But great to see the experts at work. I wish you all the very best for the future and may your business thrive. I am so excited to be starting a new adventure in my new home with no mortgage.
Kind regards Michelle xxx"
