Within the base price, you can select from our range of popular colours for walls and ceilings (paint or varnish), cladding colour, window colour, roofing colour, cabinetry, bench tops, and flooring. You can also select your tap ware and sink colour from the stunning ABI colour range, as well as other hardware like door and cabinet handles. Advanced customisations such as changing the layout or structural elements are not included in the pricing for our popular plans. But good news...  we specialise in custom tiny homes, so any of our plans can be customised to suit your needs, or we can create a one-off design just for you. If you'd like to make changes to the floor plan, e.g. layout, positioning of widows, size and number of rooms, the configuration of cabinetry etc, then talk to us about our custom design process. Our in-house design team have designed hundreds of tiny home layouts and we know what works, so contact us about having a custom tiny house built to your specifications.
