Adventurous Couple Build Brilliant Tiny House On Wheels
Bryce: For some, Tiny Homes are a longterm solution. B: For others, they’re just a stepping stone. B: We’re about to meet a young couple who’ve built their very own Tiny House on wheels. B:.which has now become a kind of quot;enablerquot; for them to now look . B:.at purchasing a larger house, where they can start thinking about. B:.adding a few more members to the family. B: Hey, how’s it going? Holly: Hi there! H: Good, how are you? B: Nice to meet you, Holly! H: Nice to meet you!.
B: G’day Oli, how you doin’, mate? B: This, here, is a VERY impressive looking Tiny House! HO: Thanks! B: She is a big one, as well, so . B: . how big is this one, actually? H: Ah, 7 metres by 3 metres (23 feet by 10 feet) B: 7 by 3? H: Yeah. so we went wider. B: Definitely.
B: Not one that you’ll want to be transporting on the road very often? H: No, for us it was always. the point was to move it just once or twice, and then just leave it. H: .onsite, and, yeah, we thought it was worth some extra stress transporting it for the extra space living in it. O: So, I’ve always been obsessed with Tiny Apartments and things like that . O: . and, um, I was actually just watching one of YOUR tutorials O: . the one on Brett*, and Holly saw it. (*Amazing DIY OffGrid Modern Tiny House) O: .and was like quot;man, what’s this, this is pretty interestingquot;. O: And so we watched it together, ay, and. H: And I said we should do it!.
O: We should do it! O: So, yeah, we started, like, taking things out on the floor and. H: Yeah. O: Every time we were at the beach, drawing things in the sand and. H: Yeah, we had, like, fullon tape measures and stuff H: .and we’d draw up floor plans, and we went through heaps of different designs. lots and lots of different plans. H: All sorts of stuff . H: But basically the main thing that made us do it was just that we wanted the adventure. O: Yeah, the adventure.
B: Well, the place looks REALLY nice from the outside. B: Let’s have a look on inside, see what you’ve done. H: Awesome, come on in. B: What a lovely home! H: Yeah, she’s cool, hey? Thank you! B: It’s all so open and light, isn’t it? H: Yeah, that was a big part for us. H: We have 9 windows and this tiny little space and it was always about making it light and airy. H: . and getting the sunshine in, all the time. O: Yeah.
O: So we’d seen, like, a lot of those Americanstyle Tiny Houses. O: And they didn’t really work for how we like to live and, um, you know, they’re pretty amazing but. O: . we tried to take the quot;Kiwi approachquot; to it, you know open plan. O: . big doors looking out onto the view and the deck. H: Yeah O: It was the main thing we had in mind when we built it actually, was the light, bright open feel. B: I really love what you’ve done here with this climbing wall. B: This is such a clever way of getting into the loft. H: Yeah, it’s cool, ay?.
H: So, it mainly.it was just that we didn’t really.we didn’t really know where a ladder could go . H: . and we didn’t really want to cut off any of that opening. H: So, instead Oli, yeah, Oli decided on a climbing wall. I was pretty against it at the start. H: But now, I really like it. H: I think it’s cool to have the quot;popsquot; of green and everything as well. H: Lots of people were, um, a little bit quot;antiquot; having a climbing wall as the ONLY way to get up there! H: But, you know, the whole thing about a Tiny House is, you built it for YOU, right . H: . you don’t build it for resale value or, for you know, anyone else, you build it for the people who are gonna live in it.
