"Scotty" The Tiny House

Our clients came to us with a clear vision for the design of their tiny home. With an architect in the family they were fortunate enough to be able to provide us drawings of exactly how they wanted their tiny house to be laid out! We worked with them to develop the plans even further to reduce the weight as much as we could. With financial independence being the motivating factor for this client, we also focused on making the build beautiful yet affordable. The kitchen benches are slightly higher than average, a customisation for our tall clients. The design features two lofts, one as a master bedroom, and the as a lounge space. The ground floor has a generous bathroom/laundry, with his and hers wardrobes on either side of the bathroom door. There’s a bench seat with storage opposite the large entry doors, and a very practical kitchen with a live edge Macrocarpa breakfast bar.

"Hello Gina, Amy, and rest of the Build Tiny Team, Rhys and I were about to send you the below email, just before I got yours! We do have a name for our tiny, Scotty. Simply because it was on our travels in Scotland that we made the decision to come home from our overseas stint, and get the tiny house dream underway! Right from the get go when we first met Gina in January last year, til the very end, the Build Tiny team has been a absolute pleasure to work with. The care and thought that goes into the whole process is amazing. Rhys and I appreciate you answering all of our ongoing questions, giving us great advise and being honest and telling us when something just wasn’t going to work. Your communication throughout the whole process has been superb, and you were quick to fix the few small issues we encountered along the way. Our tiny house has turned out exactly how we wanted, and that wouldn’t have been possible without your team. Rhys & I cannot wait to move in, and we are so excited to show our family and friends our beautiful new home. With the crazy Auckland house prices buying a house wasn’t going to be possible for us for a very long time, and going renting and paying someone else’s mortgage really wasn’t ideal either! You have made it possible for Rhys and I to have our own home, without having to live with a crippling debt for the rest of our lives. You should all be so proud of the work you do, and the dreams you make come true. We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful home you have created for us. Wishing you all the very best in future, and we cannot wait to see all the amazing tiny homes you continue to create!" - Rebecca
