Fitz Roy THOW: One Floor Tiny House Design

The Fitz Roy THOW by Fox Cabins NZ is roughly divided into thirds — one third for the kitchen and bathroom, one for the living space, and a final one for a downstairs bedroom.

I think this design would be perfect for an in-law suite with its one floor concept and simple design. Add some shelving for storage, and you have a happy home!

You can get in touch with the builder (they only build in New Zealand) here.

    This is cute for older people or a single person that is on the go a lot.. Like this but wouldn’t want to live in it. To small for me.

    I could easily live in this. I would put a twin bed in the bedroom, and use the extra space to build in a large closet. A closet seems to be missing in this design, so that would make it perfect! And the closet would be big enough for storage of my crafting materials, too! I could be very comfortable in this!

      Oh crafting materials! I am always wondering how to better organize my ever-expanding collection haha.

        If you are a seamstress, there is NO END to the amount of fabric and assorted things that can be collected! Christmas is the time when I try to use up all my scraps — making all sorts of little things (and some big ones, too, of course) for family and friends! Other crafts also add to my stash — and woodworking requires even more, so yes, containing crafting materials is an almost never-ending task/goal! LOL!!!

          Yes I am — and I recently got into felt art haha! So now I have a bunch of normal fabric and then a whole new collection of felts…oh dear!!
