Outfitted with all the modern comforts of home, the Pohutukawa measures nearly 10 feet in width and 27 feet in height with an 11.5-foot-tall ceiling. The Pohutukawa, which takes its name from the New Zealand Christmas Tree, is handsomely clad in board and batten siding painted black, which contrasts sharply with its light-filled interior and white walls. With a footprint of approximately 270 square feet, the abode also embraces indoor-outdoor living for an even more spacious feel thanks to aluminum-framed French doors, while clerestory windows and other wide windows — all double-glazed — let in additional natural light. The mono-pitched roof is topped with corrugated iron. The home rests on a custom-made triple-axle tiny house trailer.

At the heart of the home, there is a large living and dining area with a mezzanine on either side. Beneath the first mezzanine, which fits a queen-size bed, the full kitchen includes a dish drawer, an oven/microwave, hob, range hood, sink, fridge/freezer and plenty of storage. On the other side of the tiny home is the more compact mezzanine that can hold a double bed or serve as an entertainment lounge and is accessible via ladder. Beneath that elevated space is the bathroom with a standing shower, vanity, toilet and heated towel rail. The washing machine and extra storage can also be found on this side of the house.
