Wayfarer Tiny Homes are architecturally designed and engineered using composite panel technology like those used in the construction of Superyachts. This makes them strong and lightweight with in-built heat transfer mitigation.
Wayfarer Tiny Homes unique floor to ceiling ‘window walls’ create majestic views and are designed to be open, airy and flooded with natural light. Northerly placement of your tiny home takes advantage of passive solar heating during the winter months, while cross flow ventilation and use of second story louvre windows creates a natural convective cooling effect in the summer.
Careful environmental considerations were given to long-term use of our Tiny Homes.
Use of a waterless composting toilet manages bio-organic waste while saving you money by not having to flush away tens of thousands of litres of water per year. Grey water used in the home’s shower, sink and washing machine are collected for processing in an on-board greywater treatment plant. High organically loaded waste water from the kitchen sink and dishwasher goes through a two stage process before being released back into the environment as clean water that can be recycled into vegetable gardens or to water lawns – just the way nature intended.
The interior of the Wayfarer Tiny Home has a chef inspired kitchen (2.4m x 2.3m) with full sized appliances and in cabinet recycling bins with an overwhelming amount of functional upper and lower cabinet storage space. We were recently contacted by Italian appliance manufacturers SMEG who are interested in becoming exclusive suppliers to our Tiny Homes.
The central portion of the home features a bright open space with soaring vaulted ceilings flanked by opposing window walls that are 4.2m wide and 3.5m high, made using modern look polished aluminium extruded frames and 6mm Plexiglas. This not only provides long lines of sight to give you the illusion it is much larger than it is, it physically opens up the house completely blurring the lines between interior and exterior uses of space.
A multi-use sit-up benchtop feature, provides additional preparation space for the kitchen, a laptop workspace by day, dining for 4 at meal time and a pop up entertainment area by way of an in-cabinet flat screen TV on a remote control riser.
At the other end of the home are two ‘His & Hers’ wardrobes that provide a plethora of clothes storage and form the entranceway to the bathroom.
The bathroom boasts a full sized tub and shower, composting toilet, sink and vanity, with an in-built 7.5kg washing machine with practical laundry folding facilities above.
Queen sized sleeping lofts sit above the kitchen and the bathroom and are ladder accessed. Our ‘B’ Model version maintains the two lofts and provides additional main floor sleeping space for those not wanting to climb ladders.
The Wayfarer Tiny Home is connected to mains power, water and cable (if available) through a ‘plug and play’ system giving the option of having on-site WiFi. With an on-board power conversion, simply plug into any 10a electrical outlet with an extension cord. No need for an electrician. Hot water is generously supplied through an LPG powered, on demand hot water system that will never leave you out in the cold.
