Modern, 16-ft. Tiny House in Australia


Named the “Gunyah” in honor of the aboriginal word for “house/shelter,” this tiny house is simpler and more streamlined than Hauslein‘s previous builds. They offer this model in two layouts — one with a couch, and another with a ground-floor bed.

There’s so much high-quality workmanship going on inside! All the custom wood elements bring lots of character and contrast nicely with the cream walls. There’s an afixed ladder than goes up to the loft bedroom (with skylight) and an awesome breakfast bar with a flip-out window for enjoying nature.

    Layout 2 would work for me. Wonder if there could be a pullout or jackknife couch for daytime?

    Hmm…How about a Layout 3? The kitchen moves to where the sofa is in Layout 1, a bed or convertible sofa where the kitchen is/was, and the dining counter/desk folds up at night to make room for the bed to open and for space to walk. The front door would move down the wall toward the kitchen and the bathroom door could be accordian-style or barn door style to save space. Small plusses might be that the dining table could fold up instead of down to block the window for privacy, and, hey, the flat screen tv might be hung on the wall under the table. No eating and watching TV at the same time, but otherwise what a space saver! A spare bed can stay in the loft if desired or the loft could be used for storage and a much needed closet and drawers for clothing! I can even speculate that for having split up the areas where water is used, we could start with a water storage tank under the bed/sofa and an on-demand water heater, smaller, perhaps camping size, in the kitchen and bathroom both. I am not a plumber, but I bet it can be worked out. I also would want a “garage”, on whichever end makes sense for weight distribution, for storage, tools, propane, or whatever. And last but not least, I might go to 18’ instead of 16’. What do you think?
