When someone talks about tiny homes, something titillates in my belly. Even after writing so much about tiny homes, I still can’t fulfill my desire of living in one. While I don’t own a tiny house of my own yet, a Kiwi couple has designed a single-level modern tiny house for themselves. This house offers an escape from the high stress of city life and the pleasures of serene beauty of the countryside.
Russel and Leah took three years to design a tiny home, which will offer functionality and freedom. The couple has jobs that keep them occupied throughout the day; they wanted a stress buster dream home when the idea of living downsized hit them.
Balancing downsizing and comfort, the tiny house offers spectacular views of grassy hillsides and soothing sunsets. Measuring 34-feet-long, the tiny home is finished in an all-black exterior and has windows in every room, allowing natural light to fill the interiors. The house comprises an outside deck, a living space, a kitchen, and a bedroom with a bathroom next to it.
The interior of the house is cleverly designed with all the amenities required for a comfortable living. The doorstep welcomes visitors with a black and white rug and sets the tone for the rest of the home. An emerald corner pull-out sofa offers resting space and an extra bed for guests.
The color scheme of the house is really intriguing and blends well with the interior finished in wood and embellished with copper items. The bedroom is next to the living area, where a bathroom is accessible through a sliding door.

Moving on to the kitchen, it is low maintenance and easy to clean with a lot of storage options available. Equipped with a breakfast counter, the kitchen smoothly merges with the living area.
Featuring matte black walls and robust wooden accents, the kitchen also has emerald tile-work illuminated with soft, warm under-cabinet lighting. There is also an outdoor kitchen station on the deck, in case the couple wants to host a BBQ or a beer party.
Built graciously, the house stands erect on a friend’s farm in New Zealand. The home is prepared for off-grid living, with solar panels and water treatment plumbing intact but the couple prefers opting for conventional electricity and plumbing.
