Kōtuku tiny house goes to great lengths to provide spacious interior
With a length of 10 m (32 ft), the Kōtuku is significantly larger than most of Build Tiny's other models, which are typically around 7-m (22-ft)-long. None of this extra space has gone to waste, however, and it features a spacious and storage-packed interior layout, all of which is on one level.
The tiny house's name is a reference to New Zealand's Kōtuku bird. The towable home is based on a triple-axle trailer and finished in vinyl, with wooden accenting and a steel structural frame. It has a width of 2.4 m (almost 8 ft), which is about average for a tiny house, and a height of 3.2 m (10.5 ft). Power comes from a standard RV-style hookup.
It's accessed by double glass doors, which reveal a well-proportioned interior that's finished in light hues, with poplar plywood and vinyl flooring. Visitors enter into the living room, which contains some seating, plus a little storage space.
Nearby is the kitchen. This looks relatively spacious too for a New Zealand tiny house and has space for a fridge/freezer, sink, microwave, and an oven with four-burner propane-powered stove. There's also standard cabinetry, a pull-out pantry drawer, plus overhead cabinets, as well as a breakfast bar with seating for up to two people. The bathroom is connected to the kitchen and contains a composting toilet, a compact shower, a washing machine, and a vanity sink.
The Kōtuku has just one bedroom. Since it's on the ground floor and not a typical loft-style bedroom, this means that it has a proper double bed and space to stand upright, which is a luxury in a tiny house. It also contains lots of storage space, with storage above, below, and either side of the bed. Additionally, the bedroom opens up to the outside via glass doors.
The Kōtuku was delivered as a turnkey build, complete with furniture. We've no word on the price of this one, though Build Tiny's similar Dark Horse model fetched NZD155,000 (roughly US$98,000).
