    The mission of Habitats Hawai'i is to assist people to expand their vision of what could be...by simplifying and living in a blended environment of indoor/outdoors. The habitats on wheels are simply a seed ready to plant wherever you choose. Their mobility offers you greater freedom and flexibility, ready to be placed wherever one has access to a small piece of earth...the carbon footprint is negligible while possibilities are immense. habitats are a self contained living space which offer all of the basic necessities which one can then expand exponentially by way of arbors, plants, stone and water. you can plan the rest of the vision in harmony with natural surroundings. Each is wired for 110 volts and are solar ready. Each have metal roofs with gutters to capture the rain water. All of this to support us all to live lightly on the earth.

The ladder is a unique and ergonomic design custom made from beautiful Sapele wood. The dimensions of the Paniola are 16 feet x 9 feet x 14 feet and there is a comfortable sleeping loft with windows above the kitchen. The Paniola is solar ready, wired for 110 volts and set up for a rain water catchment system. This Habitat is available to see by appointment only. Please call Barrie Rose at 808-960-6785. You will have the opportunity to discuss custom designs to fit your individual needs.








    The Hele Mai is a compact Habitat which lends itself easily to mobility. This model has tremendous storage capacity underneath the punee or couch which doubles as a sitting area and a bed at night. The awning windows are custom designed by talented craftswomen on the island and offer great ventilation and light. The Hele Mai’s shower and composting toilet are outdoors, and it’s also set up for solar and a rain water catchment system. The company rents this model out for romantic getaways.

    Building your own Hawaii minimal house for a vacation's cost

    Kristie Wolfe spent $5000 to build herself a tiny home on wheels in her hometown of Pocatello, Idaho. It started off as a yearlong experiment in simple living, but she liked it so much she decided to keep living small, not only in Idaho, but she began looking for land to build a tiny vacation home.

    She bought a plot of land in Hawaii sight-unseen for $8000. A year later she bought a plane ticket, packed her bags full of tools and with the help of her mother, began to build a bamboo “treehouse” that to fit the surrounding jungle (though rather than using trees for support, she built it on stilts). After two months of building every day “from dawn to dusk” and an $11,000 investment, she had a second home.

    For Wolfe, the fact that it’s small- 15’ by 15’ or 225 square feet- is an asset. “My original house was 97 square feet so that was really tiny so this feels huge… I think small homes are beautiful because it fits with my lifestyle. I think having a lot of stuff mentally weighs you down even in ways that you don’t realize.”

    Building her own home meant that Kristie was able to design everything custom: from a toilet-sink to save water (she’s not only off-grid, but she relies on rainwater capture for water) to an indoor/outdoor shower with cork-bark tiling. Whether she ever moves here permanently or simply moves on to building yet another home, she now knows she can build her own shelter.
