Hello all, we are two engineers and we built a tiny house in our gap year. This was our special project where we decided to put our theoretical knowledge into practice, and now in its completed form, we are both back to our usual lives and unfortunately, not living tiny!
Our tiny home is built on a trailer, using a mixture of recycled/reused/re-purposed and new materials. This tiny home will suit a more stationary tenant, be it your teenage son in your backyard, an extra space for friends to come and stay, or AirBnB guests for additional income for your home.
The benefit of having your tiny house on wheels instead of a granny flat is that it can be towed to your new location if you ever move. Its bespoke design creates an irreplaceable hygge space for the people spending time in it, reading books, playing board games, or having a cup of tea and a pain au chocolat with a friend.
It is designed to the Australian Design Rules for trailers to be safely towed on the road.
Some other specifications:
Width and length: 4.85m x 2.4m trailer
Height: approximately 4.15m,
Weight: 2.55 tonnes, with a ball weight of 2.41 tonnes
Insulation (walls): R value of around 4.3-4.5 and glass wool insulation
Insulation (ceiling/roof): 5.1-5.5 in R value, foam panels, and the roof is Colourbond
Sustainability aspect: Exterior wall cladding made of recycled materials; High quality, new insulation sourced from other building projects which otherwise would have been thrown out; High quality, new ceiling and roof materials are also offcuts from other projects; Reused windows and doors; Brand new plywood internal walls to be painted or left as is for a natural look; Full size shower, Nature’s Head composting toilet, good size kitchen benchtop and spacious loft.
This tiny house is now available for sale. If you are interested feel free to send us an email or give us a call to discuss 🙂 I also have a video tour of the house which I can share on Google Drive.
