Couple builds dream tiny house perfect for family life after years of paying rising rent costs

A New Zealand couple named Lloyd and Kylee were struck with the ever-increasing rent prices, so they decided to downsize and build their own tiny home in Auckland. And the result? A house that perfectly works for this happy family of four.

Lloyd and Kylee watched a ton of tiny house videos and attended a couple of tiny house expos before beginning the construction of their home. Doing so made them realize that they don’t really need many things they have accumulated over the years.

The procedure was far from simple. It took them five years to finalize the designs for their tiny home and discover a family-friendly home with enough space for each family member to enjoy.

The 260 square foot home’s outside walls were painted blue, with white accents on the roof, doors, and windows. The couple built tri-fold windows and doors, which open up the home to the outside and the beautiful view of the farmland.

The area also contains plenty of storage in the form of cupboards with soft-close drawers and a little shelf above the sink where they store their baking goods.
