Here’s the 23.6 ft. Macrocarpa Model by Evergreen Homes Australia with a great stand-up loft and a full kitchen! There are pictures from two different Macrocarpa homes below to show off how you can customize it to your own needs.

We also got to interview the owner of the business, Adam, about why he started this business and what his plans are for the family-run enterprise. Adam has 19 years of construction experience and he and his wife built their own tiny home which they lived in for 7 years. This model is what he wishes their first tiny house had been like!

Gorgeous Modern Farmhouse 23.6 Ft. THOW

I just love the honey-colored tones inside this build.

A sturdy staircase up to the loft bedroom.

Brilliant to have extra pull-out counterspace.

There are stools under the counter.

This gorgeous bathroom with a basin sink!

There’s a lovely barn door to the bathroom.

There’s a cozy living room under a secondary loft.

The tile around the wood stove is so dreamy!

Live-edge countertops are super popular.

You can see there’s a slider entrance to the house in the living room.

There’s actually a lot of cabinet space in the kitchen.

There’s a spot to stand next to the bed.

Another look at the wood stove.

There’s a little closet in the main bedroom.

I love that the home has an oven (gotta bake cookies sometimes!)

The bathroom door is a pocket door.

Interview:

What got you into building tiny houses?

Necessity!
My wife and I moved from the city in our early twenties onto a 16-acre block just north of Melbourne with a group of friends wanting to live more sustainably on the land with a strong focus on permaculture, food production, and natural building. We needed somewhere to live that was functional, sustainable, cost-effective, totally off-grid and moveable to adapt to our uncertain living situation. A “Tiny Home” was the answer. Please watch one of the documentaries made about us and our house truck on Youtube or via our website www.evergreenhomesaustralia.com.au . It’s too difficult to describe in words and well worth a closer look into our honest, warm-hearted journey with our business.

What are your future plans for the business?

To continue to stay a small family-run business with a deep passion for sustainability and quality. Creating beautiful, non-toxic, functional homes for clients who are looking for a unique product with a meaningful design collaboration. We aim to focus mainly on tiny home construction moving forward.

How many tiny homes have you built?

I’ve built 10 tiny homes over an 8-year period. Between many natural building projects that consist of strawbale, cob and traditional timber framing. We have also built a lot of ‘conventional’, well-designed buildings, renovations, and extensions. I’ve been working in the building industry for 19 years and am a qualified carpenter.

Tell us about this house. What are the features? Cost?

As I mentioned, My wife and I lived in a tiny house for 7 years and this design is based on what we wished we had lived in. Design based on lived experience is always best.

The model in the pictures is $152,000 with everything that is seen included , couch and all…….

– Sleeps 4 with 2x queen size lofts
– It has a full height step down in the main bedroom with ladder access to the secondary sleeping loft.

    Love it! I need to ship me one stateside right now! There are so many cupboards in the kitchen, but none blocks a spot where a window might be needed – in fact the whole house is bright and spacious! I might – strictly for my own needs – eliminate some of the kitchen and add it to the living space. While the sofa there is very nice and has a lot of seating area, I would like to have a comfy chair a d side table and some bookcases in the living area – I have far more books than specialty cooking things. BUT, that said, I could move in tomorrow and live happily ever after! Keep up the great work Evergreen!!
