At 20 square meters (215 sq. ft) Student Tiny House builder Stefan Cook surely has created an exceedingly huge Tiny House.
Constructed largely from salvaged substances from homes in Christchurch that had been demolished after the earthquakes, Stefan Tiny House has an extremely intelligent open plan design that makes the complete house really feel very spacious.

At 20 m2 (215 ft2) Stefan Cook has built a pretty big Tiny House!
It’s nice to see a tiny house that is larger. Sometimes I think tiny house
people work too hard to be as small as possible. Can’t wait to see it
after some upgrades. Thanks!
Can’t wait to see it complete, looking at so many designs for tiny houses,
this space seems to have the greatest potential i’ve seen to date. Amazing
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
What was the smaller house/room next to Stephen’s house? Maybe you talk
about it and I missed it?
Great video! I think it’d be cool if you could include stills at the end of
the video that just kind of slideshow through to show every bit of the
Very nice, what is that word on the walls? It looks absolutely fantastic.
did he have the trailer made or did he acquire it? Would be good to have
that question asked for each tiny house you visit, here in Australia they
are incredibly expensive to have built eg. 7 thousand for an 8 meter which
is half of the total I wanted to spend.
this is a very nice Tiny house, reminds me a bit of the “couple builds tiny
house for 22 000$” one, Stefan has a lot of room to add new features too,
so it uses gas H/W – you wouldn’t have that much LPG stored for just the
stove and oven

Enjoyed watching this video and seeing what one can do. I added the video
to an article just posted. http://linkis.com/wp.me/m2u5c It would be too
large for me to cart down a road. Love the space, stairs.
man, i keep thinking this is such a great idea and i’d love to live in one
but i think i’d be paranoid someone would break in or that something would
First off, such a very cool and very livable tiny house! Second, was this
house built on wheels to be moved around, or to get around a minimum size
like we have here in the US? I didn’t think there was a requirement to
build on a trailer if building smaller than a certain size in NZ.
I like it well done…
Great job so far. love that he’s taking consumption in to consideration
before buying his solar panels, perfect.
Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Stefan is a real thinking man. Excellent design!! Conventional timber
framing makes absolutely no sense for a tiny house. And, cookie-cutter
traditional residential architecture is a joke. Howard Roark would not
Can you confirm which size of steel tubing was used for the framing? It
looks like 1″ to maybe 1 1/2″ x 1/8″. Also, does cold air get into the
tubing; are the voids sealed / welded?
that is a very nice and open layout
I love your videos. I’m from the US and hope to build a tiny home some day
in California. I’m also visiting New Zealand soon, so I’m using your
videos to practice listening to the New Zealand accent.
Great video, very big Tiny House. Looking forward to future development :)
y’all (I’m Texan) kiwis have some outstanding tiny home designs!
Great video! If you dont mind Im asking, how old are you other people
checking out tiny houses? Im asking because Im 28 years old and I dont
really know if it is weird or anything that I dont plan on buying myself a
big house and so on. A lot of my friends are doing so, and you often
compare yourself to the visible people around you right.. Could be fun to
hear how old other people interested in this is 🙂

Brilliant! Love this house.

Love the size of this house just wandering have you seen any tiny houses
with a spiral staircase to the loft which I think would be a great way to
save room and still have a staircase
Hello, I was wondering if in your future videos (which I enjoy immensely)
If you could use both meters and feet when giving the dimensions. It’s not
a terrible inconvenience, but it would help out me and your other American
viewers. Thank you for making all this great content…it has been helping
me out quite frequently when designing my own tiny house.
he kinda looks like john cena
It looks like a Tiny Starbucks.
Good ideas to make hard choice on a life style on what you can live with
out, which I have been there and done that, but it’s harder to convince
your wife to do go that way even after the kids have left the nest and
grand kids, the biggest complaint that I have heard was there’s no
dishwasher and I have only seen on upload with one and then saw a negative
comment that you live in a tiny home and have to have dishwasher and no
consider for personal preference on what you think makes you happy in
concessions in couples or daily family chores.
So I take it he built the house frame from the same mild steel that he did
the stairs in. It seems that is what Stefan said at some point in time.
It would of been cool if you had spent some time talking about the
construction method. What did he clad his house in and what about his
insulation etc. Why the curved roof and not a slanted roof with a rain
water catchment option? I also see that when you walked in where he had
his surfboard hanging on the wall that he had some diagonal steel braces at
the corner of the building. I get the feeling he has a great structure
underneath. Look like he has some good welding skills from the looks of
the stairway also. Also I am sure he must of had some photos as he built
his house. If you could of shown the house in process it would of been
cool. Still a great video.
I just went through the comments and all my questions have been answered
Amazing! Love the simplicity :)
Good job. What type of insulation is it? I’m sorry if I missed it. I’m
asking because it’s the biggest expense in my own build, and also the
greatest factor in making it a comfortable living space. I noticed the
walls look really thin and the outer layer looks air-tight (some sort of
metal), which would mean it doesn’t breath (just like a caravan). This is
respectfully a preference thing of course. For my own house I’m going to
follow the standard of the inner layer being four times as air tight (but
not completely) as the outer. That way the house breathes (think mold in
caravans) and lasts a very long time.

This is my favorite tiny house. Also so much creativity and time and effort
went in to building and constructing it. Love it!
this big tiny house is beyond incredible !!!!!!!!!!!! wowwwwwwwwwww
“Sex is not long enough” lol
the reason it feels so open inside compared to most tiny houses is because
there is next to no storage in the place so everything is open and the
counters are way to shallow.
So are all tiny houses built upon trailers, or are there some that have a
proper foundation on the ground? Because to me that is just a remodeled
travel trailer. Which is still very nice.
I like it very much. Good Job…it definitely was roomy. It makes you
think how much you can live without and what you don’t really need.
Christchurch ingenuity is aces!
I like the simple open box design. Yes, not as pretty or cozy as a tiny
house made like a hime, but more functional.
it’s better than being homeless,at least you would be warm dry and a place
to sleep,we should build some in each county in the usa ,so people dont
have to sleep in the park.
Awesome! That tiny house is HUGE! I wish I could have seen a video of him
I noted much of the interview peppered with the not uncommon affirmative
figure of speech “yup”. Conveying agreeableness, albeit in a monotone
syllable. Perhaps as a means to extend as little as possible (including
information), without appearing non cooperative. So that the idea of what
is NOT verbalized becomes just as striking as what is, over time. Like
those optical illusions where the negative spaces in the picture, reveals a
2nd or 3rd image “hidden” inside the original one. Can the same be said for
the English language and it’s culture, which has primarily been responsible
for driving the rest of the World into what we now know of as modernity?
With all these affectations and modes of communication (and non
communication, including mass media) stemming from the myriad
contradictions and gaps in understanding that we have needed to play up to,
and sometimes even exaggerate. Using this information asymmetry as a weapon
in the way that ditches are dug across battlefields and then filled with
sharp pikes or barbed wire. Ditches that delineate communities and segment
populations from one another. While broadcasting technology and mass media,
has been applied to pique and tease the senses via this wide beam net,
luring more and more people into these ditches. growing it as more and
more people tumble into them and make a living by digging away
When I was a trucker I would shower with 2 gallons of water that is less
than 8 liters of water.
Lots of great ideas for me so I know what to put into my tiny home when I
having coffee on the dick….. Took me a while to figure out he was saying
yeah. yeah. yep. right. yep. mmhm. yeah.
