This is Lily’s 150 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels in New Zealand.

From the outside, you’ll notice it’s a gable-roofed home on wheels with dark clapboards, a beautiful metal roof and stained-glass front door.

When you go inside, you’ll find a book lover’s dream, with an entire wall of built-in shelves overflowing with books and another bookcase near the couch with even more books.

You’ll also find a wonderful kitchen, bathroom, dining table, living area with couch, and an upstairs sleeping loft. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Lily, you have done yourself proud! Everything about this says ‘real home’. Bookcases, read furniture, personal touches. Not to mention good use of space and charming.

    I like this one. Wish I had not gotten rid of all of my books while sizing down, :). I was afraid of not having enough space for all of them.

      Sorry, I hit report instead of reply. I just wanted to say that the video of Lily’s home is on YouTube. Well worth watching.

      Love this home. So. Much.

    I love this house. Plenty of space for books. I visit my hometown library about once a week and lug home at least 15 books maybe more each time. The one thing I can’t find are books on tiny houses. And we have a big library. Her house especially the kitchen looks so cozy.

    When I first laid eyes on the pictures of your home, my reaction was….awwwwwww! This could be a home that I would love to live in! I love the colors, storage, layout. It screams “home sweet home” ?
    Thank you for sharing!

    Another Tiny HOuse that causes Instant “In Love with” – I’ve come to realise that there’s just not one tiny house that you love but there are quite a few and this one really goes in that category 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Has the look of a much loved home and that’s what it’s all about – tiny houses that are homes……….it’s really not size that matters!

    What a great house – I love all the unique touches that really give this a warm, homey feeling. The shower is adorable. The use of an actual leather loveseat and other real furniture is so nice. She will be able to switch stuff up when she wants to. This is what tiny living is all about. Kudos on a job well done!

    What a lovely little home! Making your place reflect who you are and what you like gives it that homey atmosphere. Be proud of what you have accomplished!

    Wonderful home. Have plans to share with me? I did not see the toilet but the home is lovely. I do love it as I am a reading person as well.

    Awesome job! I feel the same about my books as Lily. Great use of space! I could even abide with that loft.

    I haven’t been viewing this site for very long, but this place is definitely the warmest coziest interior I have seen so far..love the peeling paint on the door, and all the “stuff” around…Lily, you just need a few chickens milling about the house!…:-)))

    Absolutely love this tiny house. So inviting and cozy. Lily is a woman after my own heart. Could never part with my books.
    My most important possessions after my pets. I would love to
    live in this wonderful tiny house. Great job Lily. Enjoy!

    June 8, 2016, 6:51 pm

    Good for you Lily! I’m from northern Ontario Canada. Wonder if you’ll still be there next year when my son leaves for New Zealand, would like him to personally see this himself.
    Wonderful job!

    Ok, now that’s more like it, books. And a kitchen. This is one of the best yet. Most of them have too much built in stuff, too.

    March 20, 2017, 3:27 pm

    It’s a fine house…!

    These tiny houses are all awesome except the most all have lofts. Some of us older people would like to downsize but not climb ladders.

    This is my favorite so far! I love the openness, the light and bright color scheme and all the windows in this home. I can envision myself living in something like this.

    Love this! Very quaint, warm, and cozy.

    March 25, 2017, 7:10 pm

    It’s a sin what those poor people pay in New Zealand to build a new tiny house even…!

      @Zachary E Mohrmann – that converts to US $17,500 give or take a few fluctuations in the exchange rate , which I wouldnt have thought to bad?
