This Small Wedge-Shaped House Was Designed To Be A Unique Airbnb Property

Steph and Oliver Gordon have created a small 430 square feet (40sqm) off-grid tiny home on their cattle farm located in Mudgee, Australia.

Designed by architecture firm CAARCH, the tiny home named Gawthorne’s Hut, was created as an Airbnb property from the beginning phases, with the request to design a different and unique space, which would get them more exposure to guests due to its design.

The design of this small 430 square foot off-grid tiny house has corrugated metal siding and a 30 degree roof, that allows for solar panels.

A hidden panel within the building design houses the solar batteries. There are also rainwater collection tanks, with some of the water reserved for fighting bush fires if needed.

The open bathroom has both the freestanding bathtub and shower positioned to take advantage of the views. Privacy isn’t really a concern as it is facing the land with no neighbors, however, if required, there’s a blind that can be closed.
