The Berneil has a 7′ by 21′ footprint and 170-square-feet of living space. Our main priority when designing this home was to create a variety of storage options for the occupant. The home also features a 7′ ceiling height throughout helping to create a spacious main floor.
The entrance to the living area is flanked by two floor-to-ceiling closets which can be used for the storage of larger house hold items, as well as smaller personal belongings like books. The living room is naturally lit and ventilated by four windows (five if you include the door) and has space enough for two cosy armchairs, a fold-away table, and a stainless steel fireplace.
The kitchen features a 2-burner cook-top, sink and under-counter refrigerator. The partitions of the kitchen also contain recessed wall shelving units for the storage of smaller items like herbs, sauces, coffee, and tea. The kitchen also contains base cabinets, wall cabinets, and a drawer unit, helping to provide ample storage space for all your culinary needs.
The bathroom is accessed by a bi-fold door at the rear of the kitchen. The bathroom contains a toilet, and shower with recessed cabinetry for the storage of essentials. A variety of toilet types can be installed, including standard, RV, compost, and incinerating toilet. The bathroom can also accommodate a small sink if necessary.
The sleeping loft is capable of accommodating a queen size mattress and is lit by a half-round window. The loft is accessed by a set of ladders.
This tiny house can be built on a either a 20′ x 7′ utility trailer, or a 21′ x 7′ utility trailer.

Good To Know
WALLS & ROOF
All our tiny houses are built using advanced stick-frame construction techniques. A variety of different types of insulation can be installed, from sheep’s wool to expanded polystyrene. We also recommend the use of internal vapour barriers.
How you clad your tiny house is up to you, but we recommend sustainably harvested timber that’s been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Other cladding options include lightweight steel panels, and vinyl siding.
DOORS & WINDOWS
Our tiny houses are designed , and to meet the needs of many. That’s why we specify windows from Jeld Wen, an international company that specialises in the construction of quality doors and windows for a wide range of budgets.
HEATING & VENTILATION
There are many options for heating a tiny house. Some which have been installed in our tiny houses include the Morso 1440 wood burning stove, the Newport P-9000 stainless steel fireplace, and the Envi wall-panel heater.
Plumbing systems for a tiny house can be as complicated or simply as needed. Black and grey water tanks can be installed to create an RV-like system, while others prefer composting toilets to minimise their environmental impact.
A tiny house can be hooked up to the main grid, or you can decide to go off-grid and use solar panels to provide for your electrical needs. Some of our tiny house plans include PV-system schematics to help you along your way.
FIXTURES & FITTINGS
Our tiny houses are designed with standard-sized components in mind to minimise the amount of work, and cost to create your dream tiny home. All the main components (like the kitchen stove and sink) are specified in the plans.
We typically specify a painted drywall finish for the interior of our homes, but there’s nothing to stop you from installing timber cladding (a popular finish among tiny houses) or even tiles in your kitchen or bathroom.
