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 heard that people are maimed or killed by nail gun accidents every year. It's probably not a good idea to let small children play with them - even supervised.

    I am sorry but 400k is way too much for a tiny house. You presented much more exquisit houses for much less. And if you spend 400 k there should also be bigger rooms for the children when they're going to grow up to Teenagers

    So let me get this straight. They built this tiny house behind their normal house. They rent the normal house to afford the tiny house. How dumb is that? They're sooooo cool tho. Che bruh. Tiny house fad.

    This tiny home is exceptional. It show how a house a bit larger than a trailer can add a lot of design possibilities that makes it a very comfortable and cosy living. It is sort of like a little mansion. What makes to so spacious and not claustrophobic is the larger outer space. I dont know how it will fit when the kids become teenagers but I wish it will work well. Thanks Bryce, good job presenting this jewel.

    Why not just keep ur regular size house and be minimalist in that house and just down size there. Could have changed everything design wise there too as well. Like a whole other construction kinda just seems over the top.

    I dont want to sound like I'm a bit pickier to much, but there's so many red flags with this setup for there kids to get hurt. Little kids with no fence around the pool, a play area under the adults bed if that thing collapses you got a hurt kid and lastly the baby on the bellow 2 girls beds? Earth quake or unstable top boards means 1 dead baby.

    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.
