About Mayflower Tiny House

The kitchen features a full-sized oven complete with a gas cooktop and rangehood, double sink, three-way fridge, open display shelving in addition to the abundance of storage drawers.

Leading off the kitchen is a combined bathroom/laundry, which includes a compost toilet, sink, shower, washing machine, clothes storage and fold-down bench made from quality recycled timber.
