Byron Bay-based Little Byron has really outdone itself with its latest tiny home model. The Rubia Tiny House is merely 160 square feet, but thanks to several savvy design techniques, it comes across as being much more spacious. The impressive tiny home can also be customized for self-sustenance with solar panels, a rainwater collection system and a composting toilet.

Named for its light blond exterior (rubia is Spanish for blond), the Rubia Tiny House is made out of sustainably sourced hardwood. At 19 feet long and just under 8 feet wide, the compact, cube-like structure is built on a trailer and can be easily transported.

The gorgeous interior design mimics the lightness of the exterior. White walls with light wood accents create a modern, minimalist atmosphere. Along with the LED lighting that was installed throughout the home, natural light is ushered in through an abundance of windows.

The Rubia Tiny House consists of a small living room, a full kitchen, a bathroom and a dinette set. The kitchen is equipped with a four-burner gas stove and a full-sized oven. There is also plenty of overhead storage in the cabinets, which have been outfitted with LED strip lighting. Farther past the kitchen, the bathroom features a composting toilet and a shower along with a standard vanity cabinet.

The bedroom is located upstairs on an unusually large sleeping loft, which fits a queen-sized bed as well as an end table. Windows on either side of the bed and a light wood accent wall allow for a calming sense of openness. For guests, there is a custom-built sofa that pulls out into a twin-sized bed. The stairs leading to the loft offer extra storage.

In addition to its sustainable wood exterior, composting toilet and LED lighting, the Rubia Tiny House can be customized for off-grid functionality. Potential installations include solar panels with batteries and a rainwater collection system with a holding tank.
