A TINY home measuring just 14.4sqm has popped up in The Gurdies.
The sustainable yet functional home is on one hectare and is owned by locals Lillian Pye-Thomson and Dylan Benetti.
With an olive grove, 40m labyrinth, private deck, amazing sunsets and a communal fire pit area, it’s an incredible spot to go with your partner, friends or alone for work or study, or just for personal time out.
“We built this tiny house for our permanent residence,” says Lil.
“We are big on minimalism and eco-friendly living.
“A tiny house means we can greatly reduce our carbon footprint, save money and move it to live wherever we want.
“Designed with a loose 10-year plan, the tiny home needed to be functional to work from home, have guests over for meals and to sleep – we can sleep four people – and down the track to have our first child.”
Lil says they love that it’s easy to clean and maintain.
And it has everything you need with a bathroom, kitchen, dining and study area, storage, bedroom and loungeroom.
“We also love that we know every step that has been planned and carried out along the way.”
Dylan is an electrician and Lil is a beauty therapist, so a lot of the build was new to them.
But they love seeing what they have accomplished together.
As for advice for others wanting to build their own tiny house, Lil repeats advice she received that kept their spirits high during the build.
“Don’t listen to people who put you down about your ideas, Some people don’t get it. If you believe in your ideas, you can do it!”
