Build Tiny’s new model, named the Nugget, squeezes two storage-integrated staircases into its compact interior. Its space-saving layout also includes a bedroom and a home office, plus lots of storage space throughout the home.



Build Tiny recently completed a tiny house named the Piwakawaka that has no stairs as it’s arranged on one level. However, this model, named the Nugget, goes to the other extreme and squeezes in two staircases. The home’s space-saving layout packs in a bedroom and a home office, and also has a lot of storage space for its size.

The Nugget has a total length of 8 m (26 ft) and is based on a double-axle trailer. Its exterior styling is similar to a lot of previous models by the firm and is finished in vinyl, though there is the addition of a small storage space accessible from the outside, which looks big enough to stow some outdoor gear.

One of the major issues with downsizing to a tiny house is the lack of storage space. The Nugget addresses this with lots of little nooks, drawers, and cupboards. Visitors enter the home through double glass doors, which really helps open it up to the outside. This brings them into a living room that contains a large L-shaped sofa with built-in storage.

Nearby is the kitchen, which has a lot of cabinetry, including a pull-out pantry and a relatively large cupboard. It also has a sink, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, propane-powered four-burner stove, and oven, plus a small breakfast bar for two and large operable windows. A sliding door separates the kitchen and adjacent bathroom, which contains a shower, sink, and composting toilet.
