New Zealand–based tiny house company Build Tiny used clever storage solutions to maximize space in this 183-square-foot home.

The Millennial Tiny House is a simple 24′ x 8′ residence with a dedicated office loft that can be accessed via a wall ladder. The custom home was created by Build Tiny, which is based out of the town of Katikati in the Bay of Plenty on New Zealand’s North Island. The steel-framed tiny home is topped with a mono-pitched roof that maximizes height and accommodates a solar array. 

A special legless floor chair—similar to those used in Japanese-style homes—allows the resident to sit at a built-in desk and swing their feet over the loft edge to rest on a shelf above the kitchen. 

A cozy, carpeted, lofted office is one of the highlights of this tiny home.

“This is a ingenious way to stack the functions of one space over another, so the user can sit comfortably in the loft without bumping their head on the ceiling,” says Build Tiny’s director, Gina Stevens. 

The biggest challenge for Build Tiny was keeping the house under the 3,500 kilogram weight limit for New Zealand tiny homes.
