About the Owner

The Tiny Wooden house was born when i was challenged by a good friend to design a miniature house.

I chose to base my design on a 40ft by 8ft shipping container.

However, it proved too easy, so I tried a 30ft by 8ft container.

Again it was too easy so the challenge was set that the house would have to fit in a 20ft by 8ft shipping container.

The design idea for the upstairs came in a flash of inspiration while i was walking my dogs. I ran home eager to commit the idea to paper.

Once the drawings were prepared I realised that I had no choice but to build the Tiny House to prove the concept

I built it single handedly and it took just shy of 1000 hours. I finished the house and stoep in July of this year

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

Saw the picture on the internet and immediately liked the style, not disappointed when we arrived, Exactly as described. Aidan and his two dogs met us and explained the basics of the log burners, great of an evening and really put out some heat to sit around drinking wine. Got the hot tub too hot on the first night but got the hang of it by the second night. Obviously limited space inside tiny house but if you are used to camping then this is luxury. Very clean and warm. good walks from the farm, we did the disused railway walk into Long Itchington, about a mile and a half, very overgrown but loved it, seven pubs in Long Itchington, got around four of them, two night stay obviously not long enough.

Aidan very friendly and a good sense of humour, I have already recommended it to some friends and would say it is perfect for a romantic getaway for two but not for the five it says it can accommodate.

Go for it !
