Luxury Modern Small Home Built In Suburban Backyard

Howto & Style

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 design of this small home, located in Sydney is modern and perfectly suited to Australian life. Centred around outdoor living and the fantastic feature swimming pool, this home utilises some very clever small space design ideas inspired by the tiny house movement to create a compact home which is functional, beautiful and perfectly meets the needs of this young family.
I hope you enjoy the video tour of this luxury small home. You can follow the journey of this minimalist family via their instagram: and vis their website:

    "Affordable...I guess" 😂😂 the moment she said they initially "bought the block" affordable was thrown out the window. Lol. People remain delusional on the real purpose of things like tiny living so it will solve no real affordable houses issues in high cost areas. It will just become a smaller scale of keeping up with the Jones's where the young still cant afford to even rent a tiny home lol. An entire joke. I'd honestly prefer to keep my custom larger space, built from ground up, with pool if I'm going to spend the same amount of money for my kids to live in a stowaway, seriously? Lol

    Que pasará con ese ambiente pequeño, cuando los niños crezcan. Que otro uso le pueden dar o si un adulto ya no puede pasar en esa pequeña puerta? En algún emergencia de la niña en ese espacio un adulto no podría ir a auxiliarle? Un ejemplo. Muy linda la vivienda pero esa es mi duda.

    What are you going to do when your kids get older like 14-15 and hit puberty they dont want to be in such a small room. Maybe it was better so sacrifice a part of the pool for better rooms for your kids.

    I am just curious for couple of things. Having a very open, almost fused with the outside home, how do people deal with the security. In some places of the world, robberies easily happen, so how does the security situation for tiny houses happen. And another thing, they showed the little nook they've created for the girl under the bed. Isn't it dangerous to allow a kid play under a metal mechanism. If something happens, it can directly fall over her and hurt her.

    BRILLIANT! We've retired and bought a "huge" 760sq ft old and modest stand-alone no pool condo, BUT we are only three blocks from a couple of very low use sandy beaches in an UPSCALE large mature subdivision on a large beautiful lake adjacent to a major university in a comfortable urban setting with ALL of the "fixings". Everything is within 10 miles; full size symphony, state capital, world class summer farmer's market (surrounding the capital Sat. mornings), zoo, many parks of all sizes, MILES of bike trails and paths etc.
