New Zealand-based Build Tiny created the Bitser Tiny House, a two-story 19.7-foot long towable home on wheels.

The home was created out of extra material that was unused by previous builds, such as leftover windows and kitchen cabinets. But besides producing the tiny home with recycled pieces in mind, Build Tiny also wanted the interior design to reflect an “airy look” filled with light.

Biter was purchased by Build Tiny’s designer who “fell in love” with the build during construction and decided to purchase the mobile home before the company could publicly list it, according to its maker. While this particular build has already been sold, Build Tiny can create custom replicas for customers interested in a similar tiny home on wheels.

The tiny Bitser is 7.9 feet by 19.7 feet, and sits at around 7,121 pounds, allowing it to be easily towed, according to Build Tiny’s YouTube video tour of the tiny home. But like any non-tiny, non-mobile home, the Bitser comes with a bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.

Bitser’s main entry doorway was placed at the back of the home to save wall space, according to Build Tiny.

Bitser also comes with a built-in table near the kitchen and bathroom that can accommodate up to two people.

The living room — which sets next to the kitchen — includes a couch with a removable swivel dining table.

When the table isn’t in use, the tabletop and arm can be tucked away into one of the storage units integrated into the staircase.

The television — which sits across from the lounge area — can swivel to face other parts of the tiny home.

Build Tiny placed a thin fold-out storage unit, designed to store items like shoes, under the television.

Across the bed is a series of cupboards and storage baskets that take the place of a traditional closet.

This ledge allows for the keeping of bulkier items that otherwise don’t fit in any of the storage units across Bitser.

During a sunny day, the interior of the tiny home is lit with natural light through windows that are located in every room, including the bathroom and upstairs bedroom.
