There's no doubt about it – Australian folks are brilliant when it comes to designing and building tiny homes with fresh, innovative configurations and impeccable indoor/outdoor flow. The Hayley is one of the newest creations developed by the Alphaline Group, an expert in sustainable living, and it reveals a different take compared to the brand's classic single-level designs.
If you're interested in spacious tiny homes that combine generous proportions with the traditional comfort of single-level configurations, this Australian builder is the place to go. Alphaline has completed numerous commercial projects in addition to its impressive range of tiny homes designed for personal accommodation, and all of them exude a similar luxury vibe, coupled with the relaxed, informal style that defines most Aussie homes on wheels.

The new Hayley tiny house takes things even further by combining ultra-generous accommodation with a separate dining area in addition to the classic kitchen and lounge. The result is a mini-mansion perfect for long-term accommodation, Airbnb rentals, or short-term vacation accommodation for families. This ingenious configuration allows the Hayley to comfortably sleep up to six people without lofts and without sacrificing other living areas; on the contrary, it comes with a beautiful dining area in addition to the basic amenities.

These Aussie tiny homes aren't known for their sophisticated exteriors. Unlike most European builders, the ones in this part of the world prefer to keep things simple when it comes to the exterior and focus fully on the interior. That is why, at first glance, all the Alphaline models seem to look almost the same and almost austere in their simplicity. Inside, however, they take full advantage of the generous length and width to reveal mesmerizing living spaces with an unmistakable contemporary, fresh vibe.

While container homes come in standard sizes (20 or 40 feet/6 or 12 meters) with a fixed 2.4-meter (7.8-meter) width, tiny homes are more flexible and can be customized to increase the internal spaciousness. The Hayley is three-meter-wide (9.8 feet) and 9.5-meter-long (31 feet) – enough for a spacious single-level layout with two separate bedrooms and one bathroom, a dining area, a lounge, and a kitchen.

Having everything on one level is enough to make this tiny house instantly comfortable and accessible for people of all ages. The added length and width make it great for socializing and enjoying more time together without sacrificing privacy. The kitchen, lounge, and dining area are all part of the same open-concept section, but each one benefits from plenty of space due to the generous floorspace.

A huge, comfy sofa is strategically placed between large windows and the main doors made entirely of glass. Relaxing in this lounge becomes an experience that connects those inside with the natural surroundings. Plus, the doors become a fluid boundary between the indoor and the outdoor, expanding the lounge area into the exterior deck for an even closer connection to nature.

The lounge is also strategically flanked by the kitchen on one side and the dining area on the other side, which creates a modern socializing space that encourages people to spend more time together, whether it's cooking, dining, watching TV, playing games, or enjoying the morning coffee while admiring the gorgeous views.

The kitchen incorporates ample storage and premium appliances, including a full-size fridge; despite the somewhat unusual placement, this kitchen still gets plenty of natural light thanks to a large window strategically added to the back. If the sofa is used as an extra bed, the Hayley can easily accommodate up to six people – an awesome perk, considering this is a single-level dwelling.

Very few homes on wheels feature a dedicated dining area, much less one so spacious and elegant. What makes it particularly modern is the seamless balance between privacy and openness – there are no doors that would block the view, but no large windows either. The area is big enough for a dining table with three seats, and it's separated from the bedroom area by a partial wall.

The Hayley seems to have two separate halves – one is the social area that's open to the outdoors, and the other is a more private, secluded section comprised of two separate bedrooms and a bathroom. The smaller room, which can fit either two bunk beds or a single bed, doubles as a transition area between the main bedroom and the home's social area, filled with natural light thanks to a huge window.

Hidden at the end of the house, Hayley's master bedroom looks and feels like a luxurious oasis in an exotic setting. A huge bed dominates the space, designed primarily for rest and not so much for additional storage. This beautiful room is guaranteed to offer a superior resting experience compared to other tiny homes with considerably less privacy. It's what makes this Aussie tiny home so special: the balance between togetherness and intimacy.

The 90-mm engineered steel framing, wall and ceiling insulation, a hot water system, a gas cooktop, and a full-size shower are standard inclusions for all Alphaline tiny homes. On top of that, the Hayley tiny home can be upgraded with features such as air conditioning, skylights, a fireplace, an exterior deck, and even a solar package.
