"Autumn" Tiny House

This has to be one of our most creative and compact designs yet. Truely tiny at 6 x 2.4m, this tiny house is packed with artistic touches and surprising design. The exterior has a beautiful well proportioned shape with a unique cladding combination. Smooth vinyl weatherboards in Annapolis Blue contrast beautifully with black Vulcan Charred Cladding. It’s heavily textured surface is inspired by the Japanese technique of ‘yakisugi’ or ‘shou sugi ban’. As you enter the tiny house there is a striking featured wallpaper that was supplied by our client and artfully installed by our team to wrap around the interior walls. The negative detailing of the plywood interior linings were installed with this feature in mind, so the plywood lines draw your eye up to the full height ceilings, hammock net and skylight above, all centred over the main entry door. The kitchen was also designed to enhance the illusion of spaciousness with all cabinetry and appliances below eye level, and huge tall windows again to draw your eye out and up. To achieve this the client opted for a small under counter fridge, and a concealed back draft range hood that disappears out of sight when not in use. For a tiny house of its size, the bathroom is very generous, with a corner shower, practical vanity, low maintenance incinerating toilet, and a washer dryer combo. Just because a space is mainly about utility, doesn’t mean it can’t also be creative, check out the custom mural painted on the back of the bathroom door, a delightful visual treat when the door is closed behind you, tucked next to that is a deep storage closet for all your clothes. Directly above the bathroom is the queen size loft. As you’d expect it’s packed full of features there’s a walking platform next to the bed so there’s no need to crawl. There’s a bedside table with storage, a folding desk for working from home, and more lift up storage at the foot of the bed.

"I honestly could not be happier with the result of my tiny house build with Build Tiny, I'd have to say the whole process has been one of the best experiences I have had.

From my very first contact with them, right until delivery they were such a pleasure to work with. My build took place during such an uncertain time with covid, with supply delays and covid level changes and all the madness that was so out of anyone's control, and they were so communicative of everything that was going on, updating me daily at times. Amy does an amazing job as the liaison for the team, she's so easy to talk to, it was always exciting to get a call or an email during the build.

I work in a creative industry so I came into the build knowing I wanted to do something unique. The design process with Karen was so easy and fun and the whole team was so welcoming and enthusiastic of all of my crazy ideas and did an amazing job bringing them to life. They even couriered me the bathroom door mid build so that the mural could be painted and ready to be installed for the finished build. So much care was taken in the small design elements, from the angle of the windows to the negative detailing, everything just lines up and flows and the house is such a comfortable space to work in or relax. I have since filled it with plants and my dog loves that she has her own door and little set of stairs.

One day I'd love to add a second tiny house, so I'll be back!"

"The guys up at Build Tiny have been amazing to work with over the past year - I did a lot of research before beginning the process and couldn't recommend them more highly to anyone looking to do something similar. They've just posted my house into their portfolio today if anyone would like to see more below - and check out the rest of their builds too. And of course, give me a message if anyone would like to know more about the process"
