"Green Hill Farm" Tiny House

Our clients - a husband and wife duo from Green Hill Farm - came to us to design this custom tiny house in the summer of 2018/2019. The basis for the design was the Littlejohn tiny house which has a very similar layout. However, the clients wanted to extend the length of the tiny house out to 8m to allow for a very spacious bathroom and king sleeping loft with a built-in storage unit. The storage unit has two hanging wardrobes a set of drawers, and a TV. There is a hidden utility cupboard in behind the TV to conceal all the TV cords as well as a place for the client to keep their internet router. The Green Hill Farm Tiny house is being used as rental accommodation until which time as clients are ready to move into the house themselves in retirement. It also features a built-in couch with space underneath for guests to store suitcases and a detachable Lagun table that swivels in multiple directions so that its never in the way. The kitchen is very practical, with a tall pull-out pantry, full gas oven, microwave, a butcher-block drawer unit on wheels, and even a dishwasher. Another clever feature of this house is the insect screens installed on every opening window which will be awesome in summer!

"Gina, Jason, Amy, and the team of Build Tiny, have been a pleasure to deal with. From the conceptual ideas, through to getting the design finished, and completing the build with an outstanding finish. A memorable moment for us was when asking for the delivery date to have the reply that the date was in our contract.... We actually asked for an extra week to finish our site work. Team of Build Tiny... Well done, and we are grateful for having found you when exploring building our Tiny House"
