    Hi Bryce,

    I am curious about the land situation. I read about lifestyle properties in NZ, but they seem too big for a tiny house. Is there a way to buy just 1 acre to park the tiny house, near a city?

    regards.

    Woops, the loo is clearly demonstrated in one of yr vids, no need to post that q. However, there’s hallways the prob of where to empty it. It’d be amazing to have a mobile composting loo, or a separate mobile building housing a composting toilet. How is this important aspect of living usually managed?

      Hey Fiona! Fear not, we will be going into that in greater detail later on in our video series. 🙂

    I love Bretts tiny house, it is the best I have seen. I am so going to do this. I am in a situation of having 2 gorgeous 8yr old boys and love the idea of a clutterless livestyle. I chose to live off the smell of a oily rag so that I can do things that are important( walking on the beach). I love the idea of being self sufficent but at the moment that would present more cost so my plan is to look at moving to a camp ground where we could use the kitchen and bathroom facilities while finishing the tiny house. the long term plan would be to continue saving to buy land (small plot) and then to finish it off.I have lived in a wee small sleepout with 2adults and the two boys but we had a toilet and a coal range to use when needed. I also think I could use what would be the kitchen area as an area for bunks for the boys. I love bretts idea of his water tank under the seat as well. Love your website by the way.
    Cheers Gayle

      That sounds like a wonderful plan Gayle and glad you are enjoying our website and videos! Keep us up-to-date with your own build. The only way to start, is to start! 🙂

    I love the idea of having a tiny house, but where do you park it?

    • Bryce

      There are lots of options. Some people park on land that they own themselves, others park on land that belongs to friends or family. There is also the option of paying a small amount of rent to use some land (remember, there is a lot of unused space in New Zealand). Failing that, there are places such as caravan parks where you could also park up. Personally, I feel that the ideal situation is a kind of work for rent situation, where you park on the land in exchange for helping to maintain the property, keep veggie gardens etc. We will actually be doing a video dedicated to this topic later on, which will show a range of the different options, and show examples of what New Zealand Tiny House inhabitants are already doing. 🙂
