About Swallowtail Tiny House
- The ‘Swallowtail’ model is a complete tiny house on wheels that offers affordability and flexibility, with a wide range of optional extras designed to seamlessly upgrade the home as your budget allows
- This model has been designed to grow and expand with you as your needs change and your budget grows. The structure, spatial arrangement, and functionality can accommodate a range of optional extras and different furniture arrangements.
- This model features a butterfly roof (hence the name ‘Swallowtail’) with an integrated box gutter and downpipe for easy connection and water collection, all hidden from view beside the feature paulownia timber screen. Textured ply cladding and corrugated sheeting make up most of the exterior, providing a modern form with a typically Australian palette of materials.
- Rest easy almost anywhere in Australia knowing that our tiny houses have been engineered to suit up to Australian Standard wind classification C2 (cyclonic!).
- A deep framed window is featured at the high end for long views out. Beautiful tall louver galleries by Breezeway come as standard and all doors and windows are located to maintain long clear sight lines across and through the space for a more open feel.
- Two key factors drive the layout of this model – flexibility and affordability. A drop-down loft ladder allows for a relatively open floor plan, giving maximum options for arranging your own space as you see fit. The layout and positioning of doors and windows, while maximizing long views and air-flow, allows for future expansion of cabinetry and other built-in elements as your budget allows.
