Tiny houses typically contain one staircase for the main bedroom, while a ladder is used for the second bedroom, but Build Tiny managed to squeeze two storage-integrated staircases into the Home Haven Tiny House's compact 8-m (26-ft)-long frame. The tiny house was delivered as a turnkey build ready to move in for roughly NZD 132,000 (around US$85,000).

The Home Haven is based on a double-axle trailer and consists of a steel frame, with black vinyl cladding. It also has an outdoor shower affixed to its exterior.

On entering the home, there's a living room located to the right. This contains a sofa, plus a shelving and storage unit that doubles as a staircase to reach the secondary bedroom. The bedroom itself has some more storage space and can fit a single or double bed.

Another storage-integrated staircase is nearby and leads to the main bedroom, which has a queen-sized bed, yet more storage space, and a lowered platform to make getting dressed easier.

Next to the living room, the Home Haven's kitchen includes a sink, fridge, an oven with three-burner propane-powered stove, and a fold-up countertop extension. A sliding door leads to the bathroom which looks pretty snug, even by tiny house standards, and has a composting toilet, shower, and sink.

Wow, how come no one ever thought of this before...oh wait, they DID.

I wonder what's the purpose of what look like hand grips on the leading edges of the stairs to the second bedroom. They can be seen most easily in photos 3 and 4. Seems like they'd weaken the edges of the steps, making them likely to snap and possibly causing a nasty tumble.

Beautiful mobil home.
