Luxury Modern Small Home Built In Suburban Backyard

  • Publikuar 12 Pri 2019
  • Hidden in the back yard of a bustling suburban neighbourhood is a remarkable small family home. A sanctuary and haven designed to give the family a better quality of life, and yes, the swimming pool is larger than their house.
    Become a Living Big Patron:
    Wanting something different for their family, Dan and Marnie were inspired by tiny houses and minimalism and wanted to choose a different lifestyle for their family. With a large backyard, the couple decided to construct a new, small home for themselves to enjoy.

    The only thingI don't like, the bedroom , it is so tight for the children. It will be very tight in 5 years.

    Beautiful house. But check
    out @ 13:54 and I really wish
    they would not have had
    that doll there. It is a very
    unpleasant caricature
    to people of my racial
    background. 🤦🏿‍♀️

      I agree! That golliwog doll has a very
      racist history that many people
      in the comment section seem to be
      blind at recognizing.

    Only a couple of things. First no pool safety for young children. The tree behind them must be a bear for keeping the pool clean. Last how do you keep Australian critters out of such an open house? The cat makes it look like they built the house for it. I cannot wait until they have two teenage daughters fighting for that bathroom.

      They could easily make an extra room next to the kitchen, by simply moving the dinner table and grill up to the little green area, where the two large beanbags sit, and then extend the roof out further. The current children bedroom could then be made into one large room.

      All that they have to do is maybe add on an extra room. That's what most tiny house owners do.

    I think this is one of the nicest tiny houses I have seen on here, and I usually don't like th modern look, but this is so pretty and the space is so well utilized and kitchen so functional while at the same time bringing the outdoors in.. or should I say the inside to the outdoors... I am retired and think that I am going to build something like this.. very nice ! and they seem like such nice people and how they have accommodated their children is so cool ! bravo ! & God bless them.

    So many things great about the house but the one negative thing is the lack of space for the bedrooms, especially for the kids. Kids grow up and faster than you think. They need their space and privacy. This can't be a long term arrangement. They should have taken away just a few square meters more from their pool area to make some extra space for the kids. Considering the placement, it still can be done in the future.

    I think their house is cool, sort of reminds of the family swiss robinson treehouse, but the only drawback is with kids, it's fine when they are wee, but as they get older, it's gonna be harder to make the space work for them. It's a shame aswell as they have put a lot of effort into making the space theirs but I don't think they would be able to live in it 10 years from now.

    My question is, when you live in a camper trailer or tiny house, how do you NOT get your home stolen if you need to unhook it from a vehicle to run errands, etc.? Anyone could pull up to your tiny house or trailer, hook up, and tow it off. It seems you'd need to park it in some secured area (like this one featured) unless you wanted to guard it 24/7.

    It _is_ a very clever design, and one that shows a tremendous amount of planning and space optimization. And while $400K AUS ($286K US) is very expensive for a 340 sq. ft. home and pool, it's likely not as outrageous in the hyper-inflated Sydney real estate market. And to get such a lovely, whimsical, simple-to-maintain dwelling and pool out of it all is something few other homeowners in the surrounding neighborhood can claim.
