Raising a family can be challenging enough in a large home, let alone a tiny house.

Therefore, when commissioned to build a new model for a couple with two young kids, Build Tiny designed the Tiny Tāwharau around the needs of daily family life.The Tiny Tāwharau is based on a double-axle trailer and measures 8 m (26 ft) in length. It has a vinyl exterior and comprises a steel frame.

The owners themselves actually had significant input into the design too, even going so far as to learn how to use 3D design software to help realize their vision for their home.Visitors enter into the main living area through large double glass doors.

To the left, where you might expect to find a living room, is a sleeping area for the kids instead. This has bunk beds, with a ladder and a netted area next to the top bunk, both for safety and to serve as a hammock (the area is pictured open but will have a divider installed for privacy).
