Take a tour of the amazing iBot tiny house by Build Tiny. It was made for off-grid adventures in New Zealand.
It includes solar panels that power appliances in the home, as well as two loft areas and showers (indoor and outdoor).
Their other tiny house projects include the Millennial and the Tinyville, which we have showcased on our website before.
As you step into the iBot tiny house
You enter the iBot tiny house via the double doors in the middle of the property.
This means, as you step in, you will notice the house is split into different sections.
On the right-hand side is your galley kitchen, main loft area and bathroom a bit further on.
Straight in front of you is the staircase that leads up to the main loft area.
On your left, there is a main living area, as well as a smaller loft space and a ladder to access it.
The living area
The living area is a small and cozy space that features custom furniture built by Build Tiny.
There’s a two-seater couch as well as a small bench.
We think a wall-mounted television would look great on the opposite wall.
You will notice the ladder that leads up to the second loft space. This can be placed against the wall to free up floor space.
There are also louvers next to the front door to allow air to flow into the house.
The galley kitchen in the iBot tiny house is fully equipped to handle all of your cooking needs.
There’s a full gas oven, stovetop and extractor fan on one side of the kitchen as well as some countertop space, shelves and storage.
The refridgerator that is situated underneath the staircase runs on energy provided by the solar panels on the roof!
The other side of the kitchen features the sink, dishwasher and washermachine, plus some additional cabinet storage.
The cabinet on the left-hand side of the kitchen can be moved out from underneath the counter to provide leg room for seating and so that the top of it can act as additional countertop space.
The bathroom in the iBot is located just a bit further down from the kitchen. It is protected by a space-saving cavity sliding door.
There’s a small vanity and sink as you step in, with a small shower on the right-hand side.
On the left there is a composting toilet and overhead storage space.
The staircase that leads up to the main loft area, above the kitchen and bathroom, features some neat storage solutions.
Parts of the stairs are cupboards or drawers. Furthermore, some of the wooden stair tops lift up to provide extra space.
To access the other loft, you need a ladder.
The loft areas
Both loft areas in the iBot tiny house contain full height pine barriers and baby gates that fold out.
The main loft area has enough space to fit a double mattress.
The exterior of the iBot tiny house is made from vinyl cladding.
Aluminium is used in the joinery and the walls, ceiling and underfloor are all insulated. The windows are double-glazed too.
Since the iBot was desinged to be by the beach, it was important to build two showers – one inside and out.
This way, you can have a shower before you step into the house.
