For more information, visit SHOW LIVING ON a yacht in Australia for 14 years with his wife and three children taught Bevan Thomas the value of a small home. It was cheap, easy-to-clean and made life a lot simpler, he said. But it wasn’t until he moved back to Christchurch three years ago that he really began to explore the potential of tiny homes. He built his first tiny home as a hobby to see if it was possible, but he said the interest had taken him by surprise. Now he is putting the finishing touches on his second, and said he would have shown hundreds of people through it, including many who are building tiny homes of their own. SHOEBOX HOUSE: Bevan Thomas and his miniature house will be on display at The Star Home & Leisure Show. The secret to his tiny homes was that they were built as a trailer, meaning they avoided a lot of the regulation around things like minimum ceiling height and the steepness of stairs. He has worked a range of jobs in the past, from sewing machine mechanic to marine trimmer to commercial pilot. The design of the homes was inspired by his work with boats and aircraft, he said. Rather than building the homes like a house, with a lot of material making them rigid but also very heavy, he used aviation monocoque techniques, which gave the structure its strength while keeping it light. He sold his first tiny home and the second will be on display at the The Star Home & Leisure Show. 500 DAYS NO PAYMENTS, * NO INTEREST Minimum purchase $499. Finance offer expires 4th July 2016.
