Is this simply the best tiny house you’ve ever seen? gallery

The Alpha Tiny House by New Frontier Tiny Homes CEO and founder David Latimer offers a whole lot more luxury than most.

With its fold-away deck, table that seats eight, and Modernist windows, this tiny house is a cut above the rest.

Designed and built by New Frontier Tiny Homes in Nashville, the 22.8 square-metre Alpha ticks all the boxes for storage, convenience and ease of living.

We especially love that pop-up terrace that provides fabulous indoor-outdoor living in the middle of the house. And how about that Fire Station door that slides up to open up the inside to the outside?

New Frontier Tiny House CEO and founder David Latimer has rethought his priorities to discard much of our consumer culture, while developing the perfect tiny house.


The tiny house, which featured on HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living series, has a strong, modern aesthetic that is contrasted with beautiful natural, textured materials, which includ shou sugi ban cedar siding, hardwood floors and a reclaimed barn wood ceiling. The kitchen even has Peacock Gold granite benchtops.


David Latimer, CEO and founder of New Frontier says everything about the design and materials spell luxury.

This large garage door with tempered glass slides up to open up the house to the outdoors.


He says Alpha’s stand-out features include a closed-cell spray foam insulation, Typar rain screen and moisture barrier, the custom fold-down deck and awning, tempered glass garage door, and giant sliding glass door, and a custom 8-person dining table.

“Multi functionality and a maximisation of space are the calling cards of this tiny house.”

But it is Latimer’s personal philosophy that also stands out. He says he discovered the relatively nascent tiny home movement while seeking a means to align his values with a purpose that adds value to the lives of those around him, “especially the under-served and marginalised”.

And here is the indoor-outdoor flow to the deck.


To quote from his website: “Thus began the recognition of his own perpetual feelings of inadequacy with our consumer culture of envy, the wasteful ingratitude of first-world striving, the addictive thinking of impulse buying and must-have updates on all manner of electronics and products.
