Posted on by Bryce Posted in Thoughts |

As many of you have noticed recently, content on YouTube and social media has slowed down a bit, as has the construction of the Tiny House. This is a quick video just to fill you in on what’s been happening over the last months.

At the moment I’m on the road again filming some amazing new Tiny House tours! I’m really excited to share a new season of small spaces with you all. When I get back to Auckland I’ll be stuck into the Tiny House tours with the team again.

It’s Christmas time! We really wanted to take this chance to say a big thank-you to all of you who are following our story. 2014 has been a big year for us, and it’s so exciting to finally have our build underway after so long in the planning and research phase.

Next year is going to be an even bigger adventure, as we complete the house and downsize into 15 square meters! We’ve got lots of great new videos planned, and some very special new Tiny House tours also, including our own!

So, thank-you again for watching our videos and making Living Big in a Tiny House what it is! See you again in 2015! 🙂

The Principles of Precycling

Posted on by Bryce Posted in Thoughts |

What Is Precycling?

In a world where an astonishing number of objects are made to be used once and then thrown away, sometimes it doesn’t feel like enough to just be recycling. This is where precycling comes in. The idea behind precycling is to reduce waste by avoiding items that will generate waste in the first place and therefore cutting off waste at it’s source and eliminating trash before it is created. When you’re living downsized, it’s a great practice to get into, as it will not only help you to reduce your environmental footprint, but it will also simplify your life by reducing the amount of waste you have to deal with.  Read more

Meeting in the Middle

Posted on by Bryce Posted in Thoughts, Tiny House |

Many ‘eco houses’ that are built today, are trying to find sustainable solutions to an unsustainable way of life. We realise that our current habits of overconsumption can only go on for so long, but instead of making changes to our own lifestyles to help find solutions, we as a society are still looking to technology.

With our Tiny House project, we feel it’s about meeting in the middle. By using some of the latest solar energy technologies, we are able to have all our needs taken care of and more, especially when we make some simple lifestyle changes that drastically reduce what we need to consume.

The Journey Begins!

Does living in a Tiny House help make room for a bigger life? Join us on our journey to find out!

Together with a talented architectural team, we are pushing tiny house design in New Zealand to the next level.

The project will not just follow us through the whole design and build process, but also the first six months of living in our new tiny house.

It will also follow the whole process of living a downsized, eco friendly life.
