Tiny Homes

Stylish and Contemporary

At Fox Cabins our specialty is creating stylish, bespoke tiny homes built your specifications, needs and budget. We enjoy taking your sketches, designs and ideas and turning them into the Tiny Home of your dreams!

So, what is a ‘Tiny Home on Wheels’? They are units built on a road legal trailer as to be classed as vehicles, which can be used for short or long-term accommodation. They are ideally suited for people that wish to simplify their lives, downsize and reduce living costs and become mortgage free. They are also great for additional income as a Airbnb rental accommodation.

We believe that Tiny Homes should be built to the caravan weight and height limits for them to be classed as vehicles (caravans) and reduce or eliminate potential issues with your local council. We build our Tiny Homes under 2.55m wide, 4.3m high and under 3,500KG in weight.

We have lots of experience working with councils from different parts of the North and South Island so we can help with questions regarding consent issues for your project, and as we are LBP licenced builders we can also offer fully consented buildings on foundations with council consent.
