Single Mom’s Incredible Tiny House with Office Mezzanine

After going through a big breakup, Rebecca had to live with her sister in a room without windows for a time. She says that was good practice for tiny living and solidified her resolve to have her own tiny space someday. With the housing prices in New Zealand at well over $780K, she saved a lot of money, even though she spent $250K NZD (~$147K USD) on her home.

Her son has a lovely first-floor bedroom with plenty of space for his clothing and toys, while she has a loft bedroom adjacent to her separate loft office space where she can work from home. There’s a great U-shaped kitchen, a large living room, and lots of hidden storage spots! Enjoy the incredible tour below.

  • Rebecca went through a rough breakup and ended up at her sister’s house, staying in a small bedroom with no windows.
  • She got accustomed to living tiny in that space and was inspired to get her own tiny house.
  • Her son has his own bedroom on the first floor, with a really cool space mural and glowing moonlight! He has plenty of room for all his toys and clothes.
  • The U-shaped kitchen has apartment-sized appliances, including a dishwasher under the oven! Pretty neat.
  • In her very PINK bathroom, there’s a residential toilet and a walk-in shower stall.
  • Upstairs she has her bedroom, as well as a separate office area where she can sit and work from home.
