This incredible colonial cottage-style tiny house was constructed for only $8,000 (New Zealand Dollars). Almost entirely constructed out of reclaimed building materials, this tiny home is packed with a whole lot of style and character. Keith and Jen were inspired to build this tiny home after a flood damaged their property and they were looking for a bit of a positive project to be able to focus on.
The bare bones of this tiny house were found in an old swamp and the timber was all restored and brought back to life in this new project. Almost everything both inside and out of this build has been constructed from salvaged and up-cycled building materials. From the 100-plus-year-old iron roofing to windows rescued from an old school house, everything that has gone into this build has a story. Keith and Jen have done all of the labor in this build themselves and that combined with 95 percent of the building materials in this build being second hand has enabled this beautiful, stylish tiny house to be built for a remarkably affordable budget. It’s inspiring to see what’s possible with a tight budget, but a lot of creativity.
