One Waikawa Beach tiny home in the news

Tiny homes are also being used as a solution to red zoned land where building permits cannot be given due to safety concerns, Ms Stevens said. 

A tiny home has been set up as an Airbnb on Waikawa Beach on the Kapiti Coast on a piece of coastal land in an erosion zone, she explained. 

“The owners of that property wouldn’t have been able to put a regular batch down there so it’s an awesome solution for them.”
