Tiny House Scotland


Tiny House Scotland is owned and run by Jonathan Avery whose flagship build is the NestHouse ("a highly insulated modular moveable small eco-house") which is 3.4m wide and available in three different lengths (3.6m, 4.8m and 6m) although the modular nature of the design means additional sections can be added. He is also working on a NestPod which will be 2.55m wide and road towable. Here's what Jonathan says about his work:
The NestHouse project is my personal crusade to bring together the physics of building science with aesthetic design and individual craftsmanship to create a new alternative for sustainable living. It’s a snug wooden building which could be an affordable starter home, a lifestyle micro living choice, or the venue for a home based business.  The name came from the idea of a bird nesting box – a small, cosy, sustainable, eco-friendly unit which provides an essential survival shelter for the occupants.


The NestHouse comes fully finished and is built either on a chassis with wheels or as a unit to be craned into place. Jonathan says that it is aimed at people who want to experience full time micro-living and live lightly and sustainably on their land, particularly those who want a starter home.

Among his other projects is a collaboration with Social Bite which building a village of 10 tiny houses in Edinburgh for homeless people, based on the NestHouse.
