Options & Extras​

Solar Power


As a customisation / upgrade, solar panels can be installed on the roof of your Tiny House at an additional cost, making you fully off-grid. We’ll tailor a solar package to your power usage/requirements, but a typical tiny house set up costs $17,250 and the basic specifications are as follows:


1.7KW Off grid. 6 x Panels direct fixed the to roof, 3.0KW Victron easy solar inverter and charger. 4 x batteries for a total of 384 amp hours. Please allow for a generator for use on multiple days of limited sunshine.


There may be an additional cost to build a housing unit or install a cupboard for the inverters and batteries depending where you would like this equipment kept. 

Water Tanks


We don't recommend on-board water tanks unless you are building a super portable, small tiny home that is designed for travel. If like most people you are going to be parked up on a piece of land for an extended period, we recommend that you either use mains water available on site, or use a large standard water tank that you place near the tiny house, and pump water from there to your tiny house. This is much cheaper than custom onboard tanks and will reduce the weight on your trailer. 


That said, we can install water tanks into your tiny home if that is what you need, get in touch and let us know what size capacity you would like, and whether you need fresh and or grey water tanks, and we can send you indicative pricing. 





You can collect from Katikati or we can arrange delivery. Our tiny homes can be towed without a pilot vehicle, however, you will need to be experienced at towing and have a vehicle capable of towing 3500kg, if the GMV of your vehicle and the tiny house is greater than 6000kg you will require a class 2 license. The following prices are estimates - we would need to individually price for delivery to your location at the time of transportation.
