Take a tour of this cozy and functional tiny house by Build Tiny – The La Sombra.
It was completed in 2019 by the team in New Zealand.
There are some great design features inside and out, enabling the owners to take the house off-grid too, like the iBot tiny house also by Build Tiny.
We’re here to give you a full tour of the La Sombra tiny house, let’s go.
The La Sombra tiny house measures 8m by 2.4m and has lightweight vinyl cladding on the outside.
You’re just able to see the solar pv array on the roof of the house, which provides energy when off-grid.
However, it also has a 16 amp mains power connection for when you are connected to a power supply.
The exterior of the La Sombra also has some nify storage solutions for an inverter and batteries.
When you step inside the La Sombra tiny house, you’re greeted by the warm poplar plywood interior.
To your right, there’s an open plan living area with a couch, shelving, a television and some pot plant decorations.
A space saving vertical ladder, which provides access to one of the lofts, separates the living area from the small dining table and chairs.
An amazing feature in the La Sombra is a spiroloc wood burner stove that is on the right-hand side of the image.
Another nifty design is a clothes drying rack on a pulley system that can be brought down closer to the stove.
The kitchen in the La Sombra tiny house has all the fixtures and fittings you could ever need.
- Fridge freezer
- Full gas oven
- Washing machine
- Sink and
- Large kitchen bench
As well as many storage solutions such as drawers and cupboards.
The La Sombra has two sleeping lofts, one on each side of the house.
The first one is above the living area and is accessible via a ladder.
The second loft area is accessible via the space saving storage stairs in the middle of the property.
In this loft area, there’s room for a queen/king bed with headroom as well.
There’s a built in bed base to air mattress and full height wardrobe too.
Lastly, the custom made storage cubbies mean you can store all of your clothes upstairs.
The bathroom in the La Sombra tiny house is through a space saving cavity sliding door at the end of the kitchen.
Inside is a shower with rollaway door, a small vanity and a composting bambaloo toilet.
