What We Do - Tiny House Build & Design

We are a couple from Auckland, New Zealand. We embarked on our Tiny House journey after learning about the movement a couple of years ago.

After some online research, we decided to build our own. We spent a few months designing, researching and planning,

before starting our build in November 2015. Almost exactly a year later, in November 2016, we completed our house and moved in. And we love it !


Our mission is to help people that want to build their own Tiny Homes. Building a Tiny House is an extremely empowering process.

It will challenge you physically and mentally. It may even be the hardest thing that you ever do, but that is why it is also incredibly rewarding. It gives you control over your life.

You will learn a huge amount in a short space of time, about building, about yourself, and about how you interact with the environment.

Deciding to build a Tiny House can be daunting. There are so many unknowns, doubts, and worries that you might not be able to do it.

It can be quite overwhelming. However, the most important step is deciding to build. From there, everything will fall into place, not overnight, but it will happen, slowly but surely. ANYBODY can learn how to build their own house.

Nobody was born a builder. Even if you have zero building experience, you CAN quickly learn everything you need to know to build your own house.

We have learnt so much from doing the hard yards of going through the whole process, from design, to planning, to building, to living in our house.
