Modern Australian Tiny House on Wheels with a Bed Lift


This is a modern Australian tiny house on wheels in Australia.

From the outside, it hardly even looks like it’s built on a trailer, right? Probably because of the beautiful built-in porch system which of course you would have to uninstall before you move the home to a different location. When you go inside, you’ll find a beautiful interior with a bed that lifts up into the ceiling when you’re not using it, a kitchen, fold-out table, plenty of storage cabinets, a bathroom, and more!

    Alex,
    You outdid yourself with this one. It’s very innovative, very practical, and light and airy. Thanks for sharing it.

    What safety measures are incorporated into the ‘lift bed’ to assure that it will not accidentally descend on anyone sitting on the couch? The overall style and decor are very pleasant to the eye!

  • Avatar Terrie Noll

    It would be nice if you included hardware sources for the bed lift.

  • Avatar Elizabeth Rubio

    Also my favorite so far. I favor windows in series bringing in light and
    fresh air. As I am legally blind, the more natural light I can get, the better. Agreed, the bed lift is bound to be pricey, but I could be happy with a bed permanently set on a platform of drawers for clothing, etc., daybed style. Modern Australian architecture in general pleases me.

    Beautiful and quite livable IMO. That porch/deck is the perfect finish to the whole structure.

  • From what I have read and seen, those “lift beds” are totally “safe”. There are several major “RV” manufacturers, including “Winnebago”, I believe, who use them in their “higher end” models, to both save space AND add more room for sleeping. And if you’re just TOO LAZY to “make the bed” in the morning, just raise it up “messy” into the ceiling! LOL! thanks for the GREAT article and photos! Greg

      Have a link to see the hardware?

    Great, I have been always thinking about a lift up bed instead of a loft one where you have to crawl and beside that it doesn’t need any floor space in a tiny place like a Murphy Bed.
    Another great feature is the spacious porch which protects from the elements and allows outdoor living. Beside that it takes off the narrow
    basic structure of street legal tiny homes.
    Unfortunately the in build furniture are mostly along the long sides. It would be better to put some – like the foldout table – across or as a nook to widen the house optically.
    The settee doesn’t look very comfortable and seat depth seems to me
    for kids or short people only.
    I don’t like the storage or whatever loft it is. Storage/weight should be down and not up. A step or underfloor location makes it easier to access and would allow to reduce the overall height.
    It would be interesting to learn about measures, how it is build (I couldn’t figure it out from the video) and the price tag.
    Thanks Alex for this great and modern tint house. Its always good to look over the fence and see what in other parts of the world has been done.

    Quite unique and beautiful…

    I had the pleasure of checking out this house in the flesh a couple of weeks ago and meeting the clever folk who designed and built it. It was beautifully done and indeed didn’t look like a tiny house at all. It almost felt more like a modern tiny cafe! The bed lift worked with a remote control and moved up and down very slowly. When at the bottom it had a fold out ‘leg’ that helped support it. I loved the big couch (although the bed above did give a bit of a closed in feel) and the bathroom was awesome. Rather than having a vanity in the tiny bathroom they brought it out and popped it next to the washing machine/dryer. This allowed for a long window in the bathroom with louvers for extra airflow. It felt super spacious. They also had a huge mirror which gave a greater sense of space. Finally a tiny house with lots of windows! And the best bit was the removable porch. So awesome. This is the most similar design we’ve seen to the one we’re going to build next year. But it was pricey. They said if they sold it they’ve charge AU$150K. Too much for us….

    At last, a bed lift. I’ve been a fan of them for years, however they are few and far between.
    Rather than a porch that unbolted, I’d go for one that folded up, and the roof down.

    • Avatar Theo

      This is a rerun, but my comments still stand. Down with loft beds. And outdoor loos.

  • Avatar Diana

    Our Safari Trek motorhome has this “magic bed”. We have been sleeping in it for 16 years. So glad to see these in a tiny home. Fabulous use of space.

  • Hi, thanks for the info!. From everything I have viewed in the past year my solution to bedding/sleeping in a small space would be a MURPHY BED or folding couch into a bed. There is no need for a ladder to go upstairs (and somehow try to negotiate in the middle of the night if you have to use the bathroom). I do like having a bed upstairs IF there is enough room above the bed to stand up and there is a normal stairway (not a ladder). thanks! rachel

  • Avatar Lynnette

    Very nice. I love the finishes. Not crazy about the lift bed though lol

  • Avatar Gabrielle Charest

    Love the lift bed! If it seems too claustrophobic with the bed elevated, why not paint the underside a pale blue and sponge on a few soft white clouds.

  • Avatar Larry Schoenemann

    I too love the loft bed. Very smartly designed home. I personally would look at different seating arrangement. But this is well done.

  • Avatar Dawn Shea

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT , I am selling my home right now and looking for a tiny home , and I will say I have looked it thousands and this one is just right ,,, how would I get this home to Boston mass usa

  • Avatar Steve

    Beautiful! I’ve seen lift beds in RVs and even sprinter vans. About time someone applied this to a Tiny Home.
    Suggestions…
    The kitchen is downright luxurious in size. For my preferences, I’d trim a few feet off of it and give that to additional living space next to the built-ins and the bed.
    Also, maybe put your considerable talent in to making a more affordable version.

  • Avatar pamela pinnock

    are the plans for this house for sale? If so where can I buy them?

  • Avatar Lisa

    New fave! Thanks!!

  • Avatar Nanny M

    This is so gorgeous, it makes me happy just absorbing the photos.

  • Her I am ! It’s a good Idea, but I not trust… (bed lift), but everything else is Perfect !

  • Avatar Sheila Plourde

    Stared at this. Beautiful! Cleverly done and so clean. Kitchen is nice a lot of
    storage in there. The walls behind the seats are classy and stand out. Love the floors. Love this tiny home. 😀
