Tiny House Scotland is currently finishing the interior fit-out of the prototype Nesthouse – a culmination of two years research and development by designer craftsman Jonathan Avery to produce…

a highly insulated modular moveable small eco-house

This energy efficient, eco-friendly, sustainable Small House can be on-grid, off-grid or hybrid powered.  It is a very comfortable 3.4m wide and is available in three basic lengths – Small, Medium and Large which are – 4.0m, 5.2m and 6.4m respectively, giving internal floor areas from around 10 to 30 square meters depending on the size chosen and the optional external modules.

NB. The Nesthouse is NOT a caravan, camping pod, shepherd’s hut or shed but a heavyweight small scale house weighing 5-10 tons!

The Nesthouse has primarily been designed for full time micro-living or homesteading with starting prices ranging from £17,000 – £38,000 depending on size and options.  They are ideal for singles or couples who want to live lightly and sustainably on their land or as an affordable starter home solution in urban or rural areas. The light-filled cosy interior makes it a super-comfortable cabin or retreat or can provide extra living space. The Nesthouse can also be used for a home based business such as holiday rental accommodation or home office, writer’s studio yoga space or even a retail unit like a farm shop with huge kerb-appeal.   They are built off site and delivered as a fully finished building – all ready to furnish and move into! The Nesthouse is also the ultimate hygge space!

The prototype is now complete and undergoing testing – see News… if you wish to commission your own Nesthouse, watch the presentation here and then email me via the contact page.  Follow the Nesthouse project through the blog or Facebook.

Tiny House Scotland is the brainchild of Jonathan Avery who designs and builds on-grid and off-grid highly insulated wooden buildings including small and tiny houses, barns, cabins and garden buildings, for use as living accommodation, home offices and studios, holiday letting etc!  They are high specification architectural gems overflowing with character and craftsmanship but above all ecologically high performance.  At the root of all this is a lifelong love of green architecture and over thirty years as a designer, builder and furniture maker (see jonathanavery.com).

Tiny House Scotland is his personal crusade to bring together the physics of building science with aesthetic design and individual craftsmanship to create a new alternative for sustainable living. Whether it is an affordable starter home or a lifestyle micro living choice or the venue for a home based business.
