Married Couple Living Tiny in a DIY Airstream Tiny Home

why there weren’t more people celebrating living tiny in trailers such as an Airstream. I’m a semi – retired builder and designer, I specialized in Earth, Straw, and other appropriate building materials, and have been a proponent of small houses for many years.

I’ve built quite a few and lived in “alternative” housing much of my adult life, buses, trailers, barns, and tiny houses. A few years ago we ended up living in a suburban house so as to care for my wife Nicky’s ailing mother; our then 23yr old daughter pointed out that it was the first time in her life she’d seen us living in an ‘ordinary’ house.

Maybe it was this statement that prompted us to look forward and make plans for when we could move on. We considered buses, trucks and tiny houses on wheels and decided that we wanted a trailer, as its prime function was to travel easily throughout NZ, on both highways and more remote rural roads, and to park up for extended periods if we, or work, called for it. We also had an interest in simplifying and minimalism, a process we haven’t regretted.

We were pretty clear about what we required; a comfortable living space for 2 people, a small dog and a cat, and to be self -contained and easily moved. We spent quite some time with pen and paper, lists, and sketches. The trailer was in poor condition internally so I gutted it entirely, including removing all the linings so as to be able to rewire and replace the insulation. The water and grey water tanks needed replacing as did a considerable amount of the floor.

Tiny House With 4 Levels and Greenhouse Roof

Tiny House With 4 Levels and Greenhouse Roof

The “Wooly Resistance (cool name!) was built for an herbalist that lives in the mountains of North Carolina by Carpenter Owl band out of Indiana. This tiny house has so many unique features, I could easily write a small book about it. For example, the house a high door that’s accessed by a 6′ deck that’s outside the home to prevent using precious interior space on stairs. I’ve never seen that. Also, the clear roof on the back side of the home allows for tons of natural to flow through the space and help grow the herbs that will be grown inside. Love it!

Phil from Minimaliste Tiny Houses gave us the keys to the Sakura for an afternoon and we fell head over heels in love with this open concept mini mansion.

We’re excited to share a full tour with you so you can see the floor plan, interior design, and space-saving solutions Phil and his team came up with.

The extra width (10 feet wide vs standard 8.5 feet) and the full-height bedroom over the gooseneck make this tiny house on wheels feel like it could be a real long-term housing solution for a lot of people. Not just an in-between housing option that you might grow out of, which is what we hear from a lot of people who are interested in tiny house living.

The layout felt very functional, with plenty of storage, privacy, and comfort. From the comfy sectional couch with storage under each cushion to the spacious galley kitchen, from the washing machine to the full bathtub. There isn’t much this tiny house isn’t missing.

There are lots of space-saving ideas in this house, the best of which is probably the coffee table that converts into a full-sized dining room table. And the couch benches can easily be reconfigured to be a dining room.

This tiny house is designed to be on the grid, and hooked up to hydro and water. It does have a Nature’s Head composting toilet which is pretty neat.

The heat source is in-floor radiant heating, and they’ve also installed two Lunos heat recovery ventilation vents to ensure there’s always fresh air coming into the house, and to help control humidity levels.

The tiny home also has a reading loft, which is also the spot where you can access the ladder to the rooftop deck for stunning views.
