Tiny House Movement

Tiny Home Blogger

Bryce Langston is a New Zealand based actor, musician, filmmaker, author and environmentalist who has spent the past six years travelling the globe exploring the tiny house movement as the creator and host of the popular web series, Living Big in a Tiny House. He became passionate about tiny house living while working as an actor in New Zealand and searching for ways to break free from Auckland’s incredibly expensive housing market. In 2018 he published a book on tiny house living relating to the YouTube show.

The show was started late in 2013 by Bryce Langston and has since grown to be one of New Zealand’s largest YouTube channels, with 2 million subscribers and well over 220 million views across the channel. Since then, Living Big in a Tiny House has gone international, with a huge following in North America and Europe.

So what is a Tiny Home?

Imagine living free from rent, mortgage and utility bills. Imagine living in a home that generated it’s own electricity and captured its own water. Imagine you could build this home yourself all for a very affordable price. Now imagine how your life would be different if you were free from debt?

We live in a rapidly changing world, as economic and environmental forces continuously beg us to re-evaluate our way of living on the earth.

The Tiny House Movement is a sweeping phenomenon in the United States, largely as a result of the recent economic troubles where many have lost their homes.

Tiny Homes are about living simply, beautifully and yet still with everything you need. It’s about freedom from debt and having the economic freedom to live a bigger life, instead of having a bigger house.

What is perhaps even more important than the financial and economic advantages of owning a tiny home, is the environmental benefits. Living in a Tiny House carries a much smaller environmental footprint, reduces the amount of resources we as humans consume to live, and encourages us to consume less in general. They move us towards a more simplistic way of life and open up the possibility for a more sustainable future.

Traditionally, these tiny houses are around 2.4 x 5 meters. They contain a living area, sleeping loft, kitchen and bathroom and are constructed to fit a trailer so they can be easily moved. For this reason the Tiny House revolutionises home ownership, as it allows people to own their own house, without needing to own the land that it sits on.  It is possible to build these homes to be entirely self- contained and off-grid, generating their own water, and electricity.

Why Kiwi Tiny Homes

Our steel which is made by Axxis® steel has been recognised by the Asthma Foundation of New Zealand as a “sensitive choice”.

Our product doesn’t support the growth of mould or rot, and the stability of steel protects against cracked linings and cladding. It doesn’t emit gases or other vapours.

Steel is 70% lighter than timber and stronger in tiny homes, so this means more design capabilities.
