Hobbs chose to build the home using 62 mm (2.45 in) thick SIPs due to their lightweight, strength, durability and excellent insulation qualities, and also meant that he had extra floor space to work with when designing the home’s interior.

The owner, Briar Hale, paid a total of NZ$130,000 (about US$87,100) for the tiny home built by ex-boat builder and carpenter Jeff Hobbs.Inside, the home feels very spacious, thanks to the inclined roof and two skylights that allow light to pour in.

A 600 watt solar system powers the home, and a solar collector and wood-stove take care of all the water heating. These elements give the home a truly futuristic look.An outdoor utility cupboard located on one end of the structure contains the electrical unit with two 6-volt batteries, a washing machine, and the gas and plumbing units.
