"Dreamweaver" Tiny House

The Dreamweaver tiny house is yet another build based on our ever-popular Baxter tiny house layout. It's so popular as it has spacious double lofts, and a large open plan living area. This client needed a few extra features such as a smart microchip cat door by Sure Flap, a built-in gas heating system, and a full off-grid solar setup. The tiny house proved itself extremely roadworthy on the long drive down to its final destination in Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand, even taking a ferry across the cook straight.

This was a stage 3 build (turn-key, completed build)


The price of this build and (inc appliances and blinds) was in the realm of $131,200 NZD*, plus $17,800 NZD Solar package.

"There has been a lot of interest in the house... It's a bit of a novelty for everyone... I've provided quite a few tiny house tours already lol! Everyone wants to come look so I will have to organise a house warming party to get everyone through... I also want to say a massive thank you to all of you guys for the awesome work you've done and for all the help and advice you have given me throughout this journey... I am thrilled with my house and for once in my life I can't even put it into words!!!! I am sooooooooooo happy! 🙂 I can't thank you guys enough for everything that you've done... Not only did you build me my beautiful "DreamWeaver" but you guided me through the whole process and helped settle my nerves when I got overwhelmed with the decisions and choices that had to be made... Every single one of you are amazing and I will be forever grateful to all of you... Thank you so much for everything Cheers Jacqui xx"
