Hi Marnie hi fights. How are you? I’m great. Thanks lovely to meet you. Good ident. Has it go mate. Very good

This home looks absolutely beautiful

Can you tell me first of all how you actually came to be living in this space?

So we bought the block about five years ago

And there’s a house at the front that we’ve lived in for three and a half years

So it all started with a pool

We wanted to pull and then it turned into a pool in a Cabana and then maybe a pool and some

Space for our parents to come and stay in and then it turned into our own home

That we as a family of four now living in what was it that inspired you to go smaller with your home?

Hidden in the back yard of a bustling suburban neighbourhood is a remarkable small family home. A sanctuary and haven designed to give the family a better quality of life, and yes, the swimming pool is larger than their house.

Wanting something different for their family, Dan and Marnie were inspired by tiny houses and minimalism and wanted to choose a different lifestyle for their family. With a large backyard, the couple decided to construct a new, small home for themselves to enjoy.

The design of this small home, located in Sydney is modern and perfectly suited to Australian life. Centred around outdoor living and the fantastic feature swimming pool, this home utilises some very clever small space design ideas inspired by the tiny house movement to create a compact home which is functional, beautiful and perfectly meets the needs of this young family.
