Dream DIY Tiny House With Amazing Kid-Safe Loft

In this weeks episode, we visit a wonderful young family who have built their dream off-the-grid tiny house on wheels. There are so many advantages to DIY building a tiny house beyond just the cost. You get to put your heart, soul and character into a house to truly make it your own and that’s exactly what’s happened with this home.

Dan And Julie have built this beautiful home for themselves and their two children. All throughout this build there are many examples of ultra-clever design ideas, including a huge loft net to access the children’s bedroom and the ability to create a fully secured kid-safe loft. This really is a fantastic design for a young family!

In this case, the family worked closely together with a builder to design and construct a lock-up house shell. This is a popular option for DIY builders, as it allows the structural part of the home to be professionally constructed, while still giving them all the freedom to build the interior fit-out by themselves.

This tiny house is also designed to be completely off-the-grid, allowing the family many options for places to park up their home in the future.

Dan works as a tattoo artist doing incredible designs for people all over the world.

  1. Yes, you can really feel the love in this home, and it comes through in this episode. Thank you to the family for sharing, as well as Living Big in a Tiny House team.

  2. The loft met I have seen only once before but I love that this is one being utilised for play, making it child friendly, esp. being able to play indoors when raining outside etc. whilst in a tiny home has advantages! It also lifts the ceiling so you don’t feel closed in.
    I wish I had skills to transform my 50sqm cottage with some of the ideas seen in these tiny homes, so watching for inspiration.

  3. Clever design with the kitchen and bathroom, though both adjacent , unlike most tiny houses you see here, you don’t walk right into toilet just 2 feet away from the gas stove! That’s odd and unhealthy if you think of it .
    Remarkable demarkation of the space.

  4. They have a very nice and wonderful home. I can see that they love each other and they always consider their kids needs. Thank you Bryce & Rasa, avid fan here from Philippines
