Unbelievably, Sam and Simone managed to construct this tiny house as a DIY project for only AU$17,000 which works out to be just over US$12,000. In this video, we discuss how they were able to construct their tiny house for such an affordable price and tips for building tiny houses for less.

After graduating from university, this entrepreneurial young couple kick started their next phase of life by building an incredible eco tiny house together! As students of wildlife and environmental sciences, the couple now have plans to regenerate the property where the tiny house is parked. They are also using the tiny house as a base to launch a new online business. I hope you enjoy this full video tour of this stunning tiny home.

There’s no TV in this tiny house! Instead, the couple love to spend time together enjoying the great outdoors! They are treated to a plethora of nesting birdlife in the area and so bird watching and wildlife photography have become hobbies for the pair. They even have nesting birds just outside of their loft window, which they can watch each night before they go to bed.The design of their tiny house matches their ethos in life.


It’s open, spacious and completely connected to the outdoors. Large panoramic windows surround the home and give unobstructed views into the surrounding landscape, while an impressive collection of plants inside the home to their part to bring nature indoors for the couple.Priority in the tiny home has been given to a lovely office space, which is especially important for the couple who are in the process of starting a sustainable online business, crafting and retailing their own sustainable clothing brand, Jungle Alley.
