Home » Tiny Houses for Sale » Portal Design (by The Tiny House Company)


  • ‘PORTAL’ is our flagship design, featuring high-end detailing and fixtures, a modular demountable deck system, a custom-designed retractable bed and custom cabinetry between a grid of ‘portal’ frames.
  • Continuous sight lines through the length and width of the house help to provide a spacious feel. Doors and windows are aligned to lead the eye the house and out to the surrounding garden and provide very effective cross-ventilation and stack ventilation (through the high louvers). With correct design, small spaces such as this can be passively heated and cooled in an instant.
  • The central space and deck are all organized around a 900mm grid which dictates the placement of exposed LVL frames, kitchen cabinets, doors, and windows.
  • A raking ceiling, side main entry, deck positioning, and material selection are used to establish a clear direction to space – opening out towards the deck area and high louver windows and providing visual and spatial relief. Clean lines and white surfaces lead the eye past the North wall and towards the deck, contrasting the rich tones and busier detailing of the South wall.
  • Our modular, demountable deck almost doubles the floor area of the house. It’s detailing and finish match the interior space and each modular bay lines up with the internal rhythm of portal frames, cabinets, and windows. Despite the ease with which it can be detached, it reads as an integral part of the tiny house.
  • How do you deal with every function of a house competing for 18 square meters of floor space? By combining two spaces into one. Not a fan of pokey loft beds? Our retractable bed has 3m of headroom by night and floats over a 2.4m lounge space by day. Controlled wirelessly by remote, this bed needs no folding, no packing away…you don’t even have to make the bed. Out of sight, out of mind.
