The experience you can expect when building with us

Client Testimonials


Heidi Mayson

“Tiny House Builders were a dream to deal with, Rebecca went out of her way to make sure that the process was easy, enjoyable and stress free. Her passion for building tiny homes was evident from the first meeting and it was totally infectious, I didn’t need to think about it I paid the deposit that same afternoon. The designs are unique and utilise the space beautifully, the quality of the materials and workmanship are superior, I can’t fault anything. I would have no hesitation in recommending THB.”

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our Tiny House building experience! The Kowhai plan suited our needs the most, and we are happy our Tiny has a Code of Compliance. After visiting Tiny House Builders factory, we could see the quality of their builds was excellent. We were a little worried our build went over our initial budget as we changed and added things we wanted, but they gave us the costs prior to approving the variation for each request and we absolutely love the result! The Tiny House Builders team were approachable, reliable and the quality of their workmanship speaks for itself! It was a perfect collaboration, and we'd love to build another one with them!”

“It has been just over 2 months since we moved into our tiny house. After being a dream for two years, these two months had a lot to live up to, and they did. In fact living tiny has exceeded my expectations.

In week 2 we had a dear friend come stay for a whole week. I was nervous. We still had boxes, it's a small space, and about a hundred other what if scenarios were in my mind. Well it rained non stop for the whole week - meaning we were all stuck inside. And it was great. So great, she came for another week just recently and proclaimed that our bathroom was nicer than her million dollar house in Auckland's bathroom. 


The 3m width and large ceiling space in the lounge really make this a very comfortable living space that we usually share with our three dogs and cat very comfortably. 

I think the biggest change in moving tiny is how much it has changed my mindset and happiness. I am so content with my life right now. I don't have this need to buy more stuff, and I think mostly it's because the house has everything I need.

“Our Tiny House is now complete and the result is beyond our expectations! We are delighted with it! We would wholeheartedly recommend Tiny House Builders Ltd Katikati if you are looking for an honest company who will do a professional job for you.”

“We have owned a rural block in Central Otago for more than 20 years, with the idea of living there in the future. Over the years the development costs and approval processes have become more and more difficult. We were not at the point of wanting to commit to an expensive build for a place we cannot commit to living in full time at this stage, but we really wanted to be able to use our land and spend more time there. We looked at several tiny house designs online and on-site before deciding on the Pohutakawa and Tiny House Builders in Katikati. Our Pohutakawa Tiny House is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Now the house is on site, we know we made the right choice. I can’t imagine any other solution being that fast and easy.“

“Here’s a photo of me and the girls in the Tiny House yesterday.

We’ve had a great first week in it. The girls love their rooms and their beds, which made it a bit of a challenge getting them up this morning.

The house is very comfortable and just a pleasure to be in. The kitchen is really nice to cook in too, so I’m looking forward to getting into a bit of that again.

I am so loving my Tiny house!”

“Working with Rebecca and Kas to create a design that was going to make me feel at home was super easy. They were available whenever I had a question or something to change was no problem.

The home is everything I could ever ask for and the building process was not stressful. My friends love coming to stay and are blown away by the design. Thanks so much. “
