Gypsy Tiny Home Construction Phase

Posted by Karin Neate on

I popped into the workshop the other day for my first walk through my new home, and to talk design choices with Leon & Carla of Rolling Homes.  Needless to say, I was completely teary and overwhelmed.  This is the first home I've ever had built and will hopefully be my forever home.  After the fires, there's definitely a lot of additional feels attached to this little home of mine.

The team at Rolling Homes are the absolute best. I couldn't have found a better match.  This is a completely customised artisan build, with builders who not only understand but love the gypsy aesthetic.  

Such a weight off to have someone else, who truely gets it, doing the heavy lifting, big thinking and decision making when I'm gridlocked for choice overwhelm.

It's coming together beautifully.

The clever sorts there have come up with a floating island solution in the kitchen that will meet my grand plans for it to be used as a dining table, prep station, office desk, and general space for doing stuff.   It will mean I can push it right back against the stairs to really open up the kitchen space when I'm cooking, but I can also pull it back into the kitchen more when I want to sit on the "office" side, and access my office/craft supplies in the stair shelves.  

Pretty smart really!!

We made some fun gypsy inspired decisions to paint the main entry doors a vibrant wine red, like the red in the stained glass windows.  We'll also add stencils and wooden embellishments for those gypsy feels.

The red in the stain glass windows above will be the colour of my entry doors.


Seeing it in person, and getting to judge the scale and angles, and talk to Carla and Leon about their vision for it as well, has really helped to make some more decisions about how to style it further.

I've been discovering a whole heap of amazing wall paper murals this week and I'm trying to figure out which ones I might be able to include in my tiny home.  
What you're looking at above is the view of my bedhead (ground floor, along the wall where that board is) and my one solid wall in my living room above.  
This shot is the angle that people will probably first see when entering my tiny home.  I've been toying with the idea of using one of the wall papers I have in my fabulous store...

My mock ups weren't really doing them justice though...

I'm still a bit gridlocked on that decision though.  Both will probably be too much. Upstairs has a huge silver mirror planned for that wall. And downstairs will have the bed and cushions covering a large section of the wall as well.    Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.  

Many other aspects in the planning stages as well, and with covid slowing us all down, we have time to consider every minor detail.  
Lots more to come!!
