Cassie Wright 


Cassie’s curiosity for minimalism and life-mantra of “there’s got to be a different way” pulled her into the world of tiny houses and alternative living solutions; and more recently, returning to study an Interior Design and Decorating diploma, in order to “learn the rules to then break them”. 

Along with creating her own tiny house (likely on wheels first, and on foundations eventually), Cassie is keen to help the movement and community grow in NZ; and allow people to explore creative, sustainable, and fulfilling ways of living for themselves and their loved ones.
