These Tiny Homes Embrace Modern Design By Using Corrugated Metal And Wood Siding

Kevin and Trish from Out The Bay have designed and built two small and modern tiny homes in Cape Foulwind on the West Coast of New Zealand.

Overlooking the nearby surf beach, the two tiny homes, which are designed to provide retirement income for Kevin and Trish, share the same lot of land, however, both have their own unique design.
