FOCUS ON FEATURES - Episode 8 Ventilation – It's super important in a Tiny House! Think about the amount of heat, steam and smells that are created from your general day to day living at home… Now imagine all that condensed into one smaller space. Heat, steam and smells can be created in the Kitchen: by the oven, microwave, toaster, steam from pots, and the jug boiling etc; in the Bathroom: steam from the shower, hot water taps, toilet smells,… Read More

FOCUS ON FEATURES - Episode 3 Windows - Kiwi's love indoor/outdoor flow, natural light and the feeling of space. Our Tiny House Show Home achieves all this and a main reason is the strategically placed french door and 8 windows. Unless weight is a strong focus for your Tiny House build we recommend double glazed toughened glass (both panes) and is what we supply for our Tiny Homes. The toughened glass is very important while travelling on our sometimes bumpy… Read More


FOCUS ON FEATURES - Episode 2 Flooring - In a Tiny House flooring is very important. The house not only gets hotter and cooler quicker due to it's small size, which means flooring can splinter, warp and crack, it is also mobile so typical floorings such as laminate flooring can move in transit and then creak when you walk on it. For our Show Home we selected the commercial grade Karndean Loose Lay vinyl planks to create a stunning natural… Read More
