“My house has the capacity for living both on- or -off-grid. The level of air circulation is exceptional via a ceiling fan and multiple windows and skylights.” Chris Wenban
The Mayflower is a fully equipped tiny house built on a tri-axle registered 7.2 x 2.5 m steel trailer with brakes. When entering, it opens into a living area with a corner couch, and shoe and coat storage next to the French doors. Storage cabinets underneath the couch convert into a double guest bed.
In the kitchen there are wooden benchtops, a full-sized oven, gas cooktop and rangehood double sink, fridge open display shelving and numerous storage drawers. It also features a bar extension for entertainment and a home office area.
Leading off the kitchen, the bathroom includes a compost toilet, sink, shower, clothes storage and recycled timber fold-down bench. A meter-high loft bedroom upstairs helps to free floorspace. It comfortably fits a queen-size bed and sideboards for additional storage.
