Welcome to the Little Ruru. It’s funny it’s called ‘little’ because it’s still a lot bigger than most of the ‘Tiny Homes’ you can buy. 

A 3x12m platform with a 36m2 footprint gives you very livable 35m2 living space on the inside.

Stepping through the large  sliding door at the end, you enter an open plan Kitchen-Dining area with plenty of room for your Lounge suite, and shelves, and even wallspace for artwork. All of our homes have ample power plugs all around and come with Ethernet cable connection, TV aerials and LED lighting included.

The kitchen of the Little Ruru is complete with a full kitchen, the only thing you need to bring is your fridge. A dishwasher, electric oven, 4 burner cook top and cupboards & drawers are included, so is the timber bench top (you can choose bamboo or acacia) and of course stainless steel sinks and tap ware.

A digital remote connects your kitchen (and your shower) with the gas califont (included) to let you choose the temperature outlet for the water - to save gas, as you will never need as hot water in the shower as you might need in the kitchen. The Little Ruru can have an optional range hood as an extra, with a carbon filter or a vent outside - please enquire for extra costs.

Through the cavity sliders you get to your bathroom, which has a 900x900 shower as a standard item (this can be upgraded to 1200x900) and a 900 vanity unit with all tap ware installed. There is connection points for a washing machine and a dryer and enough space to fit both, which can alternatively serve as a large storage area. All bathrooms have lighting in the wall and an opening window, plus an extractor fan.

For toilet you can choose a bamboo loo or a cassette toilet, or you can talk to us about any other toilet arrangement of your choice. We do now also offer EcoAsh Cinderella Incarnating Toilets either electrically or gas driven, please enquire for options.

The next door takes you to a spacious bedroom, easily fitting a king size bed, with two large windows and a huge French door, for the best views while having coffees in bed. There is also sufficient space to choose your type of storage - it’ll fit wardrobes, drawers, hangers - whatever you have or like. Again, ample power plugs and TV aerials installed for your convenience.

All of our homes are timber framed, fully insulated and structurally engineered, so they don’t wobble while they’re being transported and look just as pretty when they arrive at their destination. We use Douglas fir for framing, and structural cladding and lining to support this. The steel platform and the roofing give structural bracing - no movement at all! And of course, our homes have double glazing throughout. All materials by the way are made in New Zealand - check out our ‘quality’ page for details.

The price of the home includes all lighting, wiring, one heat source (you can choose a fireplace or a heat pump, and for a bit of an extra you can also have both), a dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven (gas available on request) and of course the fully fitted bathroom. Product warranties go over to the clients and we do give a 3 year warranty on our workmanship as well.

Call or email us to arrange a viewing, because you will only get a really good feeling of the size, and space, and room, and light of our homes if you have seen them in person!

We look forward to meet you onsite.
