The Rooke Haus has a large living room featuring 2 floor-to-ceiling closet units and 2 shelving units, creating plenty of storage space. There’s also space for two armchairs and a folding leaf table. The living room houses the homes stainless steel fireplace, which is used to heat the home. If required, you can replace the two armchairs with a small sofa-bed to create an additional sleeping space.
The living room leads directly into the kitchen, which has a full-size gas stove, 4.5 cubic-foot refrigerator, kitchen sink, base and wall cabinets, drawers, and built-in storage for smaller items. There are plenty of worktop surfaces for food preparation, and windows to provide natural lighting during the day.
The bathroom is 32-inches wide (rather large for a tiny house) and contains all the usual fixtures and fittings you’d expect to find, including a shower, toilet and recessed cabinetry. You also have the option of installing a small sink if required.
The loft is one of our most spacious sleeping lofts due to the low mono-pitch roof, allowing the walls to extend higher up, giving you that little bit of extra elbow space. It also has 4 operable windows to flood both the loft and the living area below with light, and can accommodate a queen-size mattress. The loft is accessed by a set of ladders.
This tiny house can be built on a either a 20′ x 7′-6″ utility trailer, or a 20′ 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.
