Outstanding design, but $400,000 is outside the definition of any tiny house. LMAO

This makes me wish I could gut my house and incorporate some of these ideas into it. My house is old and on the small side so some of these ideas would work perfectly.

Unfortunately most people can't afford even a basic place to live on their own. As nice as it would be to see beautifully modern homes like this pop up around the country, it won't happen unless we raise the standards of living for the majority of people.

Why not put the $400,000 AUS dollars to pay down the mortgage on the existing home.
Michelle S

Keith Jones I think they took out a second mortgage, if I’m not mistaken. To pay for the tiny house and the pool. They said their mortgage payment was now bigger after the construction. But ultimately, they have an investment property.

ROFL. They had to invent fairies to get their daughter to accept sharing her cubbyhole bedroom with a baby.

That kitchen sink is joke size.

Great. Every time you're in the pool the entire household is staring at you like it's the television.
Ridiculi Day ago
So they grew their family while they shrunk their space. Nothing like having a pool 6 inches from the house with a bunch of toddlers around. Bravo.
Linda J. Clarke
Dad can lay in his huge pool or hot tub and watch his large screen tv, but the kids have to sleep stacked in a closet? Yeah, great 'family' priorities!

Minimalism also is about spending less money. It’s a beautiful place for sure but as far as being minimalists it’s a joke really
Michelle S

Did you miss the part where they’re renting their main house? That alone probably covers the monthly mortgage payment. So, yes, they spent a lot of money on this project, but it was an investment. They’ll be able to pay off their mortgage way faster than they would have been able to before, they’re obviously not spending as much money bringing in materialistic things, and in 10 or 15 years, they’ll basically own two homes. Maybe it’s not minimalism in your opinion, but it’s definitely a hell of a good investment.
Christabel Essien
Debbie Potter they spent a lot initially but in the long run they’ll probably save a lot because they don’t even have the space to have too many things

Did I miss where they keep the lawnmower, and pool chemicals and whatnot? That stuff takes up a lot of space.
Katie Hendrixson
+Gaby Born They definitely had a decent patch of grass under their outdoor bean bag chill space. Maybe it's just easier to pay people to take care of all that stuff where they are.
Gaby Born
Gaby Born 2 days ago
Probably don’t need a lawnmower since the pool takes up all the space. The rest of the yard would probably be the responsibility on the tenants living in their big house

There’s a fine line when a tiny house turns into a regular house. I think that line is crossed when you have a full outdoor patio, fire pit and pool...oh and don’t forget the entire second house lol.

Great house -- pools are a lot of work but well worth it in such a hot climate summers! Definitely the issue with the space for the girls as they get older will be will need to be dealt with but it looks like they have space to expand a little. I could see this set up being a great house for a retirement couple. Cheers

This is one of my favorite tiny homes I've seen in the last 10 yrs but I choked when I heard it cost $400K (in Aussie dollars) to build. That's almost $290K in U.S. dollars.

happykt $400k is a bargain in Sydney - and it increases the price of their main house as a property with dual living will be worth much more

This place is genius. They were so clever with the extra storage everywhere but especially with the kids rooms. They really put the focus on the right areas. Like the big kitchen window. The other big window working with the pool view/TV/outdoors. I know thats something that interest me greatly in a project. Would of liked to know a little more about how the bathroom & kitchen work & if they have traditional piping. Lastly, I think this is a great idea for a new growing family. If they out grow it they could move back into the front house which would probably all be paid for by then.

I am sorry but 400k is way too much for a tiny house. You presented much more exquisit houses for much less. And if you spend 400 k there should also be bigger rooms for the children when they're going to grow up to Teenagers

Design and finish are fantastic. US $290,000.00 is high. Would leave out the pool. Only major concern is the children's bedroom as they become teenagers. Is it off grid.

So let me get this straight. They built this tiny house behind their normal house. They rent the normal house to afford the tiny house. How dumb is that? They're sooooo cool tho. Che bruh. Tiny house fad.
