Adventurous Couple Build Brilliant Tiny House On Wheels


Oli and Holly are a couple who aren’t afraid to break the norms. When they made the decision to build a Tiny House on wheels, this couple constructed a home that would truly suit them and their personalities. It’s filled with quirky, unique features and clever spatial design.

The Tiny House is roughly 3 x 7 meters (23 x 10ft) and is joined to a removable deck to create brilliant indoor-outdoor flow and a space which allows the couple to enjoy the wonderful views from their land.

Inside the home is spacious, modern and light with lots of north facing windows. The lounge area looks out onto the deck and has a custom built sofa with lots of storage, enough for the couple to keep all their camping and hiking gear.

And of course it’s hard to miss the climbing wall which the couple use to access their lounge loft. Although many people questioned the couples decision to have a climbing wall as the only way to access this loft space, Holly is quick to point out that you don’t build a Tiny House for other people, you build it how you want it!

If you do manage to find your way to the top of the climbing wall, you’re rewarded with a comfortable living space with a large television. Perfect for relaxing movie nights, providing you’re able to pass up cups of tea and popcorn up to someone!

The couple have constructed a dream kitchen, with full sized fridge, oven and plenty of space to prepare food. Unusual for a Tiny House, they have even been able to fit in a full dining table, which also doubles as a work-space.

Upstairs, the sleeping loft is comfortable and light, with windows strategically placed to provide cross ventilation to ensure the couple can stay cool at night.

Unlike most Tiny Homes, this sleeping loft even allows the couple to stand up! This clever design was achieved by reducing the hight of the kitchen cabinetry below and lowing the floor space next to the bed.

And of course no Tiny House is complete without a bathroom. A full sized shower was fitted into the room by building out onto the trailer’s draw-bar, which also created space for a washing machine. The bathroom has a full sized vanity and composting toilet.

This Tiny House has proven to be a brilliant stepping stone for the couple, and after 10 months of living in the house, they have recently sold their home on wheels and are now beginning the hunt for a home large enough for them to start adding new members to the family.

    Nice woodwork. Is the composting toilet a Separett?

  2. Ting

    Where do you park a tiny home? Do you have to buy a plot of land somewhere? How does the toilet work? Is this house still for sale?

  3. Kate

    Hi – is it still for sale?

    I am in love with Oli and Holly´s tinny house and I respect their option to get a “normal” house to get family. Anyway, my opinion is that in this tiny house there is space to add a new member. I think the problem is not about size or space is about philosophy.
    Once more, thanks for this web, is amazing and you got one new follower. Congrats from Germany.

      regards

    H there,

    I love both this trailer house and the Christchurch trailer house. I am really interested in building my own but I am having real trouble finding trailers. WHERE DID THESE COUPLES GET THESE MADE??!!?? I am looking for a 3m x 13m trailer to be made and all my internet searches are coming back with nothing viable in NZ. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Jess

    Wow. I really love the design of this tiny house. It seems great to live in with lots of space. Do you know if Holly and Oli would be willing to sell the plans as I am very interested in building a tiny house and this seems to tick all the boxes

  9. Jeff Rooney

    Great ideas. Always helpful to see these videos for inspiration. Thanks Bryce.

    What an amazing space. I love the tv loft and extra height in the sleeping loft.

    Bryce, do you know if Holly and Oli have documented their journey online? I would love to know more and perhaps buy plans if available.

    • stepan Z.

      have you found out anything about their plans? Have you found plans similar to that? Thank you 🙂

    This house really illustrates what an extra 2 feet (0.6 meters) of width can do to make the spaces work so much better. The kitchen- dining area is comfortable for two people to work in. The bathroom door doesn’t open into the main living area. The area outside the bathroom could easily be set up as a separate dressing room and/or closet. If you aren’t going to move your house very often making it wider will make it so much better.

    Really cool and open design. It’s pretty much everything I’d look for in a home. Unfortunately it’s a bit too big to be allowed on the roads where I live and would need a permit to build as a stand alone.

  13. Karl Weber

    Can’t wait to see what is next.

  14. Kyle

    Awesome home! Do you know how much it weighs and what kind of car is needed to tow it? Thanks

  15. Mata Kihi

    I was captured by the innovation skills that this young couple have. I would look into purchasing a home like this and placing it on my families land. Cool, look forward to following your journey of a Tiny House on wheels.
