Tiny House Consultancy

5.00 out of 5 based on 4 customer ratings

Two hours consultancy with Jonathan Avery at the NestHouse prototype in its stunning rural location near Linlithgow, West Lothian.

Jonathan will show you around the 25m2 NestHouse and then over tea or coffee you can pick his brains for help with your own project. You can ask as many questions as you like to help with your personal project .

So whether you are considering commissioning a build from Jonathan or are preparing to self-build, or perhaps you are just curious as to whether a Tiny lifestyle may be right for you, this would be a great investment to benefit from his extensive knowledge and get a real feel for what a tiny house is really like.

Jonathan has spent over three years researching Tiny Houses, as well as building the NestHouse from scratch.  Add to this over thirty years of construction experience as a skilled furniture maker, designer and builder.

If you subsequently commission a build from Tiny House Scotland this fee will be credited against your order.

If you are unable to visit Tiny House Scotland in person then I can offer a video call via Skype.

    We chose to have a face to face consultation with Jonathan because we wanted to have a look around the NestHouse. It was well worth the trip! Jonathan gave us as much of his time as we needed and talked through various different possibilities, answering our numerous questions. The NestHouse itself is clearly very carefully and considerately designed and made, a high quality product. We look forward to pursuing this with Jonathan, and hopefully have our own tiny house in the not too distant future.

    We were lucky enough to visit Jonathan for a consultancy recently. We’ve been considering downsizing for months now and the tiny house movement has interested us – BUT this is not a tiny house. It is small and perfect. It feels larger than you might expect, with the windows bringing in so much light. Everything has it’s place. The bathroom is so cute, the bedroom spacious, the kitchen and seating areas flexible and functional (with a proper sofa not often seen in smaller houses). Our endeavours to live a different life in the years to come will be based around the Nesthouse as our benchmark and if we can get the right plot of land then a Nesthouse shall be ours! The unrushed consultancy is well worth the money and will further inspire your search for something different.

    Having read the review by Catriona (30 Jan 2017) I am unable to word my review any better having had an identical experience during my visit to meet Jonathan. For any such venture into Tiny Living then time spent with Jonathan is nothing short of an essential investment.

    Worth every penny!!! I am considering all options available to me for a new venture and chatting to Jonathan was time very well spent. Not only in understanding the concept of ‘tiny homes’, but also realising that Jonathan is completely open to modifications and ‘bigger tiny homes” – as in my case. The end finish of the NestHouse is astounding. Really well thought out design and beautifully finished details. All available to being personalised. To anyone in my situation, who is currently looking at a new property venture, and a “tiny home” is one of your options’ I’d seriously suggest a consult with Jonathan. As it was I was lucky enough to visit him, but I can see no reason why a Skype consultation wouldn’t be just as useful to people who aren’t within striking distance.
