Beautifully Crafted Tiny Houses and Cabins

The Fox Hut Tiny House

Our specialty at Fox Cabins is custom, bespoke tiny houses, built your specifications, needs and budget. We have built everything from smaller 4.8M units to 8M twin mezzanine Tiny Houses for delivery all over the North and South Island.

We start the process with a chat about what you are trying to achieve, budget and required specifications, then we look at current plans to decide what design features you are looking for. We then have the plans drawn up by our CAD team so you can start to get a feel of what we will build for you.
