shaye's tiny homes New Zealand

Our Story

Our story begins in 2013, when our founder, Shaye Boddington, decided to design and build her first tiny house. Shaye (and her then-partner) had purchased some land and wanted an affordable and environmentally friendly home for themselves and their young daughter. That's how Shaye came to design and build Lucy, her first tiny. What started as a one-off project has since turned into a passion and a growing business!

Having experienced first-hand the financial freedom, ease of living and joy that a tiny home offers, Shaye was inspired to team up with a builder to build another one...and then a third and a fourth. Eventually, Shaye's Tiny Homes was formed to design and build beautiful, highly livable tiny houses at the highest standards. 

Since those early days, the business has grown significantly. Combining Shaye's design know-how and experience with a group of highly skilled builders and support staff, we now design and build 25-30 high-quality tiny homes each year. 

Each and every one of us love what we do and take a lot of pride in delivering the home of their dreams to our clients. We strive to create homes that are equally practical and beautiful, while also being sustainable and affordable. We believe that tiny houses can help solve some of the big challenges the world faces by providing affordable homes, being more sustainable and energy-efficient than traditional houses and freeing their owners up financially. We're incredibly proud to be part of that movement and look forward to helping more people and families into their own (tiny) homes.
