The Fairytale Tiny House Shaped Like A Shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. That’s how the story goes, but this tiny house is no fairytale. Constructed ferrocement, this spectacular home has been crafted as a whimsical yet functional retreat space which is shaped like a boot.

The home is constructed as part of Jester House, a cafe and gardens which is located near Motueka, New Zealand. There, the owners have transformed 5 aces of land into a retreat filled with beautiful gardens and creative tiny homes.

  2. Bryce what a treat to watch this after the news of the day. You are definitely having fun. Tx for taking us along again Mate 🙂 Rich

  3. This is so typically New Zealand, or at least it is the New Zealand I have grown up knowing, I fear it is slowly being eroded by property investors and people building to try and meet the desires of those who are going to come after them, long live good old Kiwi Ingenuity, lets hope we still have people and buildings like this for generations to come.

  4. It is disgusting that the excesses of capitalism allow one person to accumulate so many dwellings. I hope his tenants rise up and drive him out of his kingdom!

  5. This was such a fabulous insight in what you can achieve based on ‘having fun, if it’s not fun why do it’ this should be come the motto of a lot more areas in our lives . Love the tiny homes they have such character. I have binged watched all your videos and loved them all thank you ?
