Luxury Modern Small Home Built In Suburban Backyard

  • Published on Apr 12, 2019
  • Hidden in the back yard of a bustling suburban neighbourhood is a remarkable small family home. A sanctuary and haven designed to give the family a better quality of life, and yes, the swimming pool is larger than their house.
    Become a Living Big Patron:
    Wanting something different for their family, Dan and Marnie were inspired by tiny houses and minimalism and wanted to choose a different lifestyle for their family. With a large backyard, the couple decided to construct a new, small home for themselves to enjoy.

    The design of this small home, located in Sydney is modern and perfectly suited to Australian life. Centred around outdoor living and the fantastic feature swimming pool, this home utilises some very clever small space design ideas inspired by the tiny house movement to create a compact home which is functional, beautiful and perfectly meets the needs of this young family.

    I could by a 160 acres in north dakota for 400k... then rent it out to a rancher or farmer for 50 dollars an acre per year... cash upfront.

    There’s a fine line when a tiny house turns into a regular house. I think that line is crossed when you have a full outdoor patio, fire pit and pool...oh and don’t forget the entire second house lol.

    That house is sort of cool, I guess. My 250 sqft tiny house has an olympic size indoor pool. Was not easy to fit.

  • Shiela Demetillo

    How many sqm?


    Great house -- pools are a lot of work but well worth it in such a hot climate summers!
    Definitely the issue with the space for the girls as they get older will be will need to be dealt with but it looks like they have space to expand a little.
    I could see this set up being a great house for a retirement couple.

    This is one of my favorite tiny homes I've seen in the last 10 yrs but I choked when I heard it cost $400K (in Aussie dollars) to build. That's almost $290K in U.S. dollars.

    • Sharleen Davis
      Sharleen Davis 17 hours ago

      happykt $400k is a bargain in Sydney - and it increases the price of their main house as a property with dual living will be worth much more

    This place is genius. They were so clever with the extra storage everywhere but especially with the kids rooms. They really put the focus on the right areas. Like the big kitchen window. The other big window working with the pool view/TV/outdoors. I know thats something that interest me greatly in a project.
    Would of liked to know a little more about how the bathroom & kitchen work & if they have traditional piping.
    Lastly, I think this is a great idea for a new growing family. If they out grow it they could move back into the front house which would probably all be paid for by then.

    I heard that people are maimed or killed by nail gun accidents every year. It's probably not a good idea to let small children play with them - even supervised.

    I am sorry but 400k is way too much for a tiny house. You presented much more exquisit houses for much less.
    And if you spend 400 k there should also be bigger rooms for the children when they're going to grow up to Teenagers

    • Edward Goodridge
      Edward Goodridge Day ago

      Design and finish are fantastic. US $290,000.00 is high. Would leave out the pool. Only major concern is the children's bedroom as they become teenagers. Is it off grid.

  • nicolas gerrald
    nicolas gerrald 3 days ago

    So let me get this straight. They built this tiny house behind their normal house. They rent the normal house to afford the tiny house. How dumb is that? They're sooooo cool tho. Che bruh. Tiny house fad.

    I choked at the 400 thousand comment. There are so many tiny homes with even more features then this one that came in way cheaper! I hope I heard that number wrong because they got taken for quite a bit even though it is lovely and well done

  • chapman

    This tiny home is exceptional. It show how a house a bit larger than a trailer can add a lot of design possibilities that makes it a very comfortable and cosy living. It is sort of like a little mansion. What makes to so spacious and not claustrophobic is the larger outer space. I dont know how it will fit when the kids become teenagers but I wish it will work well. Thanks Bryce, good job presenting this jewel.
