Building a Tiny House Turned Her into a Carpenter

Marie, like so many others, was introduced to tiny homes on YouTube, and that sparked her curiosity about building her own home. With a lot of hard work and trial and error, she was able to complete a gorgeous little space that meets all her needs.

She loved building her own space so much, she became a carpentry apprentice and now teaches at WomeNZShed, a company that teaches other women woodworking! What an amazing success story.

  • She has an overhead dishrack that drains right into the sink, so she doesn’t have to separately dry and put away dishes.
  • She fit a washer/dryer unit inside to eliminate the need for a laundromat.
  • A large deck more than doubles her square footage and allows her to host family and friends.
  • Her bedroom has a built-in bed on the first floor with beautiful views out of a giant window.
  • In the bathroom, she put both a marine and composting toilet, so she’s set for wherever she moves her home!
