These days more and more people are downsizing and moving into tiny houses to enjoy a simpler life and get back to nature.

Interior Details
Just because you have decided to live a simpler life, doesn't mean you can't do so in comfort and style.

The ground floor of this retreat comprises of:
  • An entrance with an abstract artwork and console table with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and newspaper ready to read the headlines (and remember why you escaped society in the first place).
  • A kitchen and dining area with oven/stove, dining table and wall mounted shelf (with bottles and salt/pepper shakers)
  • A spacious sofa faces the outside area so that you can relax and unwind in comfort while you take in the beautiful view.
  • An acoustic guitar hangs from the wall, where it is ready to go for those spontaneous jams and romantic serenades by the pool.
  • Finishing off the ground floor is an ample sized bathroom featuring a toilet, shower and vanity/basin finishes off the ground floor.

The second floor of this retreat comprises of:
  • A cosy bedroom with wall to wall windows where you can take in the views while relaxing in bed
  • An abstract artwork with shades of blue, compliments the bed covers and exterior shipping containers
  • A chair with floor lamp and side table with coffee cup
  • A dressing table with a succulent to bring a bit of greenery and colour into the room

Exterior Details
  • Steps carved into the rocky terrain lead to the front entrance and pool area, which can also be accessed from the private deck through the living area.
  • An external staircase from the deck leads up to the second floor, with a spacious balcony and table for two.

Building Features
  • This model has been built in a modular format. The roof can be lifted off and the first floor can be separated from the ground floor for access to the interiors.
  • A large amount of tiles have been used, with a very minimal amount of exposed studs to create a realistic, lifelike model.
  • The walls are double layered - to allow for a detailed, realistic representation of a shipping container on the exterior without compromising the modern interior finished.
  • It consists of approximately 1600 pieces, all of which are existing parts/colours.
