"Wai-Iti Tiny House

The Wai-Iti tiny house was custom designed and built for a couple of holiday makers located in the top of the South Island of New Zealand. A tiny house was the perfect ‘ready-made’ Bach for their grassy rural section with incredible inland views of the surrounding greenery. The design was focused on a generous seating area with a clever sofa bed, and also a very large, and practical kitchen. There is NO shortage of storage here, with deep storage under the lounge window seat, and a clever set of stairs that even has a built-in puppy crate. The loft doubles as both a light and spacious queen sleeping area, and also a dedicated home office, tucked out of sight behind a shelf unit with a dropdown footwell for comfort. You’ll have to watch the video to understand this one!
