We all want to live off the grid from time to time. A sweet little escape from the stressful city life would be nice, especially at the end of a workweek. This tiny house in Coromandel, New Zealand, features five 20-foot shipping containers is a perfect place to go off the grid.
It sits on a 23-acre land in the middle of a privately-owned reserve.The place was given a sanctuary status, and there are only 25 lots within 1,100 acres of land. Rosie was lucky enough to buy and own this lot with a stunning view around.
She named her house Ahurewa which means “sacred place.” The place is sacred, indeed, with all the natural resources around her. So, she respects the land’s sacredness by living in the most eco-friendly means possible.
They source their electricity from 12 solar panels in a 4kW system. In addition, they have two 2,500-liter water tanks and a vermicomposting toilet where their water waste goes to tanks used for their composting system. The exterior of her house is nothing short of breathtaking.
She has a little garden where she allows plants that naturally grow in the area to flourish. She also plants edible and medicinal plants for her use. And her tiny house is strategically located, that she enjoys the view of both the sunrise and sunset.
If it’s that spectacular outside, wait until you get inside, It has enough space to fit a king-sized bed and still has enough room to move around. Both sides of the wall have a ceiling-to-floor glass window for a perfect sunrise view—what a perfect way to wake up.
