About Tiny Footprint – Mobility-friendly Tiny House

We have a passion for tiny houses to promote affordable and sustainable living. We have two tiny houses to look at on this property. The Mayflower and the Mobility-friendly Tiny House.

This one is designed specifically for an 83-year-old lady with a ‘lift’ bed, mobility-friendly bathroom and ramp to the house.

Proving tiny houses can come in all shapes and sizes, and they really are suitable for everyone, everything in this home has been designed for independent living. The bench seat under the ‘lift’ bed is made-to-measure to suit the owner. The large deck adds additional space when the family comes to visit.

The bathroom has been built to accommodate a seat in the shower and the toilet has grab rails making it easy to use for those with restricted mobility.

Designed and built by Tiny Footprint.
