Build Tiny's latest model is on the smaller side, even for a tiny house, but is packed with space-saving ideas. Designed to squeeze into a small suburban plot, it includes movable cabinetry, a home office, and a loft net that provides additional space to lounge.

The Larissa and Tyler Tiny House (named after the owners) is based on a double-axle trailer that features a removable hitch section to save space. The home measures just 6 m (19.6 ft)-long, which is less than half the length of the Canada Goose we recently covered, for example. It comprises a steel frame, with a cedar and steel exterior.

Visitors enter into the kitchen area. This has a fridge/freezer, sink, oven and two-burner propane-powered stove. Storage space is maximized with a large pull-out pantry and a removable kitchen cabinet on wheels reveals a hidden washing machine.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the living/dining area. This hosts a sofa with integrated storage space and a removable table, plus a cabinet with TV. A sliding door provides access to the bathroom, which looks pretty snug but does have a toilet, shower and a vanity sink unit installed.

The Larissa and Tyler Tiny House's loft areas are accessed by a space-saving ladder affixed to the wall – the thinking being that since the owners are young and fit they'll have no problem climbing up and down it every day.

The loft area includes a bedroom on one side and an office on the other. Like the New Zealand-based firm's Millennial model, it offers space for feet to dangle down beneath, making for a more comfortable workspace.

The two lofts are connected by a net that improves safety and adds some extra space to lounge around. It's an obvious idea but a good one and it's surprising we don't see it used more often.

The Larissa and Tyler Tiny House was delivered as a turn-key model ready to move in and cost roughly NZD 110,000 (US$71,600).

Lots of new ideas I haven't seen in THes yet. Love the desk chairs and dangle room. Love the net. I can appreciate the pull-out pantry. The pure white interior and light wood add to the available light inside the TH. The hidden washer is cool, even though you have to sit under the counter to fill/empty it. The exterior, though, is about as lovely as an Edsel. And for that price, I'd like to have seen solar included and heard more about standalone possibilities of water/sewage/gas.

In the Gallery, re the captions, were you trying to set a record for how many times you could type Larissa and Tyler Tiny House ? If so, you nailed it.
