The Millennial Tiny House Stands out from the Crowd

The Millennial tiny house on wheels manages to stand out from the crowd with some clever design. The house seems open and light which packs in many features similar to a full size house. Space is achieved in this 7.2 x 2.4m tiny house with features like retractable stairs.

Gina Stevens designed and built the house with brother in law builder Jason. At time of writing there are two models available the Millennial and the cheaper Boomer, this post focuses on the former. The full build will set you back a touch over $120K with cheaper partial build options available.

If you want to experience living in a tiny house in NZ the The Millennial is on Airbnb.
