Just in time for Christmas our latest custom Baxter build was handed over to its happy owners. This beautiful home has slight changes to the original Baxter design to make it child friendly and solar powered. By incorporating an external accessed solar storage area, the living area was redesigned to include bench seating and a storage shelves.
As always it was a pleasure to work with our clients, to create something that worked for them. They made some great material choices going with a gun metal grey vinyl cladding and stunning bamboo bench top.
At 8m long and with removable items we just managed to get the tiny house under weight at 3499kg making it safe to tow on New Zealand roads. Our weigh scales have been amazing as we had the ability to weigh our builds throughout the build process.
By extending the loft barriers to the ceiling and installing retractable baby gates, the loft areas become a child safe space for rest and play. The space is large and open making it multi purpose, with two large windows for light and ventilation.
Like some of our previous builds, the main loft is accessed by a staircase which doubles as ample storage. The 24v low power fridge was even able to be incorporated into the design of it.
Solar was an additional extra with this build and will save the owners so much! Our solar packages are customised to the requirements of each client but typically are around $17,250. They come with an internal solar monitor, which allows you check the PV input and battery storage anytime with a display monitor.
Another special feature of this build was not one but two showers, heated with a Infinity gas hot water system. Because the tiny house was headed off to a beach location an outdoor shower was a must to keep as much sand out as possible. Once onsite the clients are going to build a deck around it to finish off the look.
