If you’re looking for an ultra-spacious tiny house design, this modern, off-the-grid, and open concept home in New Zealand is a perfect inspiration.
Angus and Kate purchased their tiny home nine-months ago and moved it onto a breathtaking elevated section with stunning views. Since then they have lived the life of dreams.
Angus first became interested in tiny houses after he began transporting them around New Zealand to clients. He realized it was the right fit for him and bought his first one.
Tiny Towing Solutions has since been his business and he has been moving between 30 and 50 houses per month.
The house measures 33x10x14 feet and is situated 250 meters above sea level. It enjoys beautiful, expansive views and gets good sun.
Out the back are shipping containers that hold Angus’ five-kilowatt solar kit. The home also boasts a mudroom, and an amazing deck.
Once you step inside the home, you’ll be surprised to discover the spacious feel it gives, which can be attributed to the extra height and full-size ceiling in the dining room area.
If guests need more space, they can convert the table to seat two people.
The kitchen features a bamboo top countertop, a gas hob and an oven, ample cupboard space, and benches seats so that Angus or Kate can eat outside while taking in the view.
The upstairs lounge area is a comfortable space with a couch, fluffy pillows and a flat-screen TV. Angus, Kate and their dog, Charlie, love to spend time here watching movies or relaxing.
Another advantage to the lounge area’s design is that everyone can sit up on it and lie down without having the need to duck.
Upstairs, on the other side of the house, is the sleeping loft. This has a large, storage-space filled bed and lots of windows to let the air flow around the room.
The bathroom, like all other rooms in the house is huge and has a large shower, a flushing toi, a vanity and lots of storage.
A full-length window allows light in during the day, which is a great feature that opens up the space.
Although they’re basically in the middle of nowhere, Angus and Kate don’t run short on fun activities in their location.
They can go outside to ride the horses or go horseback riding. Angus also owns a side-by-side, which he drives on the 4×4 track close to their home.
“We had a big house before this so we had a lot of stuff, and at the time you think you need all that,” Angus said. “But when you actually move into the tiny house and you start being a bit more particular on what you need, you learn pretty quickly that you don’t need so much clutter, and you can sort of declutter your life moving into a tiny house.”
One thing that Angus loves most about this tiny house is coming home to something so “comfortable and cozy and warm.”
Indeed, Angus & Kate have created a paradise. You can take a tour of their extraordinary home by clicking the video below.
