Overview
The Blue Jay was designed for a couple seeking a tiny house that would accommodate their passion for music and fashion. As such, the house contains a study which can be used as a home office, a library, a studio, or it can even serve as a guest bedroom.

Kitchen
The kitchen in the Blue Jay tiny house is small but functional. It features a 20-inch-wide gas stove, an under counter refrigerator, and a circular steel sink. There are also several base and wall cabinets to cater for utensils, cutlery, and food.

Living Room
The living room of the Blue Jay is the largest of all our tiny houses, which makes it great for having friends and family round. It contains a large 5-foot-wide sliding patio door that leads out onto a small fold-up porch. The room itself is lit by no less than three casement windows, two skylights and the patio doors, ensuring that lack of light is never a problem. For heating there’s a small wood-burning stove.

Bathroom
The bathroom has space enough for a toilet (be it a standard, compost, or incinerating toilet), a 32-inch-square shower and a small sink.

Study
The study has been designed to accommodate a variety of functions, it can act as a library, a home office, or an additional storage space. You can even forgo the cabinetry and create a small guest bedroom.

Sleeping Loft
The loft in the Blue Jay tiny house is one of the largest and most spacious amongst all our houses. It’s easily able to accommodate a queen-sized bed, with plenty of storage space to spare. By using dormers we were able to make the most of the space available. It also features a hexagonal picture window and a small skylight.

Trailer
This tiny house can be built on a 24′ x 8′ flatbed utility trailer.

Specifications

WALLS & ROOF

All our tiny houses are built using advanced stick-frame construction techniques. A variety of different types of insulation can be installed, from sheep’s wool to expanded polystyrene. We also recommend the use of internal vapour barriers.

EXTERNAL CLADDING

How you clad your tiny house is up to you, but we recommend sustainably harvested timber that’s been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Other cladding options include lightweight steel panels, and vinyl siding.

DOORS & WINDOWS

Our tiny houses are designed , and to meet the needs of many. That’s why we specify windows from Jeld Wen, an international company that specialises in the construction of quality doors and windows for a wide range of budgets.

HEATING & VENTILATION

There are many options for heating a tiny house. Some which have been installed in our tiny houses include the Morso 1440 wood burning stove, the Newport P-9000 stainless steel fireplace, and the Envi wall-panel heater.

PLUMBING

Plumbing systems for a tiny house can be as complicated or simply as needed. Black and grey water tanks can be installed to create an RV-like system, while others prefer composting toilets to minimise their environmental impact.

POWER

A tiny house can be hooked up to the main grid, or you can decide to go off-grid and use solar panels to provide for your electrical needs. Some of our tiny house plans include PV-system schematics to help you along your way.

FIXTURES & FITTINGS

Our tiny houses are designed with standard-sized components in mind to minimise the amount of work, and cost to create your dream tiny home. All the main components (like the kitchen stove and sink) are specified in the plans.

FINISHES

We typically specify a painted drywall finish for the interior of our homes, but there’s nothing to stop you from installing timber cladding (a popular finish among tiny houses) or even tiles in your kitchen or bathroom.
