hanna.lofgren Sustainability, Sustainable Houses

“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. 

Key features: 

  • Complete insulation throughout
  • Instantaneous gas hot water
  • Roof guttering to a freestanding water tank
  • Water from greywater system recycled to the veggie patch
