Overview
The Nook is our tiniest house to date. The first floor has a framing footprint of just 6′-5″ x 10″ and the sleeping loft has an area of 7′-5″ x 11′. All told, this house has a total of 119-square-feet of space. It’s size makes it not only cheaper to construct, but also cheaper to tow due to the reduced weight. This home was also designed for those that have travel in mind – it’s size makes it much easier for you to tow from one destination to another, and it can also be assembled onto a single axle trailer making it more manoeuvrable than a tandem axle trailer.

Multifunctional Living Area
The Nook features a multifunctional living area due to it’s size – your kitchen is your living room, and your living room is your dinning area. The home is heated by a small stainless steel fireplace, as seen in the picture, and adequate natural lighting and ventilation are provided for by the windows surrounding the ground floor of the home.

Kitchen
The kitchen contains a 2-burner cook-top, a small sink and an under-counter refrigerator. Storage is provided for by base and wall cabinets.

Living Area
The living area has space for two chairs, and if they’re folding chairs (as shown above) they can be stored between the loft floor joists. There’s also a folding leaf table under the stainless steel fireplace that allows the living area to act as a dining area.

Bathroom
The bathroom is accessed by a large 4-foot-wide folding door opposite the kitchen and can accommodate a 2-foot-square shower and a small toilet.

Sleeping Loft
The sleeping loft is capable of accommodating a queen-size mattress and is naturally lit and ventilated by 3 picture windows. The loft can be accessed by an alternating tread staircase, which contains compartments for storage.

Trailer
This tiny house can be built on a 6′-5″ x 10′ utility trailer.

Specifications

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.

EXTERNAL CLADDING

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

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.

POWER

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.

FINISHES

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.

Tiny House Benefits

  • Save money: the average tiny house costs just $23,000 to build. That’s 92% less than your average house – a saving of $249,000 before interest.
  • Live a green lifestyle with a tiny carbon footprint. Less materials are required for construction, and less energy is needed to power your home.
  • A tiny house on wheels gives you more freedom. Live how you want, where you want, when you want. See the world from your living room.
  • Less stuff, more life. A tiny house allows you to remove the unnecessary clutter from your life, and focus on what really matters.
