Luxury Modern Small Home Built In Suburban Backyard

  • Published on Apr 12, 2019
  • Hidden in the back yard of a bustling suburban neighbourhood is a remarkable small family home. A sanctuary and haven designed to give the family a better quality of life, and yes, the swimming pool is larger than their house.
    Become a Living Big Patron:
    Wanting something different for their family, Dan and Marnie were inspired by tiny houses and minimalism and wanted to choose a different lifestyle for their family. With a large backyard, the couple decided to construct a new, small home for themselves to enjoy.

    The design of this small home, located in Sydney is modern and perfectly suited to Australian life. Centred around outdoor living and the fantastic feature swimming pool, this home utilises some very clever small space design ideas inspired by the tiny house movement to create a compact home which is functional, beautiful and perfectly meets the needs of this young family.

    Are there not mosquitoes in Australia?
    Because living in Florida, looking at the big window open and door open without any screens just makes me imagine all the mosquitoes invading the house.

    I get that the tiny house was built as an afterthought but to have a 400K mortgage is just plumb stupid. The insurance, taxes, and upkeep just to rent out the house?? Why wouldn’t you just sell it and pocket the money for your tiny house expenses/upgrades.🧐 Just my opinion/thoughts.
    I love how they thought of their kids so much in the designing!❤️

    "Affordable...I guess" 😂😂 the moment she said they initially "bought the block" affordable was thrown out the window. Lol. People remain delusional on the real purpose of things like tiny living so it will solve no real affordable houses issues in high cost areas. It will just become a smaller scale of keeping up with the Jones's where the young still cant afford to even rent a tiny home lol. An entire joke. I'd honestly prefer to keep my custom larger space, built from ground up, with pool if I'm going to spend the same amount of money for my kids to live in a stowaway, seriously? Lol

    Que pasará con ese ambiente pequeño, cuando los niños crezcan. Que otro uso le pueden dar o si un adulto ya no puede pasar en esa pequeña puerta? En algún emergencia de la niña en ese espacio un adulto no podría ir a auxiliarle? Un ejemplo.
    Muy linda la vivienda pero esa es mi duda.

    And what about the other house? Did they mention that? I'm having this problem right now. My house is too big and I thought about moving into the shed, guess my only option would be to rent out the front house tho. Not sure how that would work.
