Debt-Free Family Life in a Zero Waste, Plant Based Tiny House

This young family’s tiny house on wheels is unquestionably stunning. The cottage-style home design has been constructed to take full advantage of the incredible surrounding area and capitalize on the hot Australian weather by opening up the tiny home to the garden for year-round outdoor living. The couple has cleverly built a covered deck on the sunny side of the tiny home allowing them an outdoor living area. The deck was constructed using old tomato stakes and has been designed so that it can be packed up and moved with the home at a later date.

Inside the tiny home is open and light. There is a lounge area with a daybed, a fully featured kitchen, washing machine, bathroom, sleeping loft, and down the far end of the home even a nursery for their newborn baby. The owner Mark is a chef who loves to cook and so the kitchen was important to him. The kitchen, like everything in the tiny home, follows the principles of zero waste which means there are no single-use plastics to be found. Debt-free small house living has also allowed the couple to explore business ventures including a pop-up plant-based restaurant.

The sleeping loft has been extended in length to provide some extra storage space and make movement around the bed easier. Windows on either side of the loft ensure that the tiny house space is well ventilated and can remain cool, especially on those hot Australian summer nights. The tiny house design is already proving to be a wonderful family home for this young family. Mark and Joanna have accomplished a huge feat, constructing this tiny home for themselves in 3 months and with a budget of around AU$50,000. The back of the tiny house has a large patio with a covered seating area, perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying meals outdoors. The tiny home is located in the Yarra Valley of Southern Victoria, Australia.

When you walk into the tiny house you see the kitchen/living area which has white walls and wooden details. The kitchen has a fridge, full burning gas stove, and a washer underneath the stairs. One thing that stands out is the smart use of space, especially when it comes to storing the spices, which are on shelving that is in the kitchen. Their daughter was born in a birth pool in the sunroom of the tiny house. Another smart storage solution is the daybed which has storage underneath. You'll love the live edge wooden kitchen countertop which matches the shelving and the tiny house trim for the house.

Their daughter has her room with a crib, change table, and dresser drawer for storage, making for a perfect quiet space for sleeping inside the tiny home. The room provides a lovely space for a baby but is also large enough so she can also grow as she gets older. The young couple has incredible gardens throughout the tiny house property.
