Real Life Homes

Project Brooks

Jillian's aspiration was to offer a luxurious Airbnb accommodation on her property, and she turned this dream into reality by adding a Kowhai Tiny House on Wheels (THOW) to her site. This allowed her to generate additional income while preserving her own privacy and space. The Tiny Home boasts a stunning kitchen with crisp white cabinetry and deep navy splashback tiles, creating a perfect "home away from home" experience for her guests.


Project Dyer

Project Davis

Karen's quest for personal space was grounded in a mindful budget approach. She opted to invest her funds in a high-quality structure and planned to add her desired internal finishes gradually as her budget allowed. Her kitchen was intentionally kept minimal to expedite her move-in process, with the intention of utilizing the kitchen facilities provided at her location until she could complete her own kitchen setup. This approach allowed her to balance her budget while achieving her goal of independence.

Project Potterill

After bidding farewell to their motel business, Athol and Lorraine have embarked on an exciting journey of downsizing and retirement.

“We are loving the luxury feel of being in our compact but very comfortable Kowhai Studio unit. It’s a bit surreal because our tiny home has this ultra-modern luxury "Condo" feel but here we are located in a quiet rural location surrounded by tree ferns, fantails and the calls of the tui”
