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.
A blue couch that converts to a bed can be found in the lounge area. There’s also enough of storage under the ottoman and under the stairs for the family’s books and toys.
The lounge seamlessly connects to the L-shaped kitchen with full-sized appliances, including an oven and a dishwasher. A feature in the kitchen is the unique blue quartz sink, which Lloyd found on an online auction.
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.
