DIY Tiny Homes for Family w/ Adult Daughters

How do you go tiny with teenagers? You build two! Or at least that’s what worked for Wayne, Anthea, and their two daughters, Darienne and Remony. Wayne is an architect who wanted to design his own space, and building two tiny homes for their family sounded like a fun project.

The girls were 15 and 17 when they moved in three years ago, and now they’re adults enjoying their private “apartment” while still getting together by the outdoor patio area in the evenings. The homes were DIY builds, and everyone got involved! They’re able to park them on a friend’s farm, in exchange for Anthea’s farm help. What a fun set-up!

  • Anthea and Wayne are the parents of two grown daughters, who were 15 and 17 when they took on this tiny house project.
  • They live on a friend’s farm, where Anthea works as farm help. Wayne is the architect and design brain behind the build.
  • Each of the homes have the same layout, but the daughters’ house has two lofts with privacy curtains, connected via a rope net.
  • The showers are curved “rooms” over the tongue of the trailer, and they have skylights. So pretty!
  • For now, the daughters are traveling and away at university, but they have a spot to come home to.
