I am loving the tiny house movement that is happening here in New Zealand and see it as a way people can leave a smaller footprint on the earth. Most tiny houses are between 20 and 35 sqm and when they are on wheels they are exempt form the building code and council laws. There can give someone the freedom to move where they need to be or allow them to find a small corner of land to put down some roots, They are often beautifully crafted in wood and other natural materials, the bed is often on a mezzanine and they usually have the luxury of a hot shower and sometimes a woodburning stove. Finding somewhere to put your tiny house has been made easier by landshare.nz which advertisers land and those looking so that people can match up. The average weekly rental is about $80 to $100 and the tiny homes cost from around $40,000 to $150,000 so it is certainly a cheaper option and way to get off the hamster wheel.
There are several buidling businesses in New Zealand that specialise in tiny houses including the Tiny house builder and love Shack they make a selection of sizes and designs to suit everyone's needs. We intend to allow a tiny house settlement on our community land once we have found this.
