A tiny home is, by nature, an intimate place that requires very careful planning to get right.
At K&M Electrical we believe in a ground-up approach to wiring your tiny home. We start by assessing your needs, working with you to specify everything you want, from external connectors and outlets, to ventilation and switchboard access, to USB outlets and data cabling conduits. Another thing to consider is that ultimately your tiny home will need to be connected to a power supply somehow, be it a solar and battery array or via a caravan-style connector.
It’s always best to consult with us as early as possible in the construction of your tiny home in order to allow for all the features you require. Space is tight in a tiny home!
We provide off-grid solar options for those sites that don’t have access to mains, or for simple self-sufficiency. All our materials are NZ-made and are supplied with SDOC as required.
At K&M electrical we believe lighting is one of the most important aspects of a successful tiny home design.
Lighting is responsible for most of the complexity of wiring a tiny home. There are overhead lights, recessed lights, floor lamps, wall sconces, and more, and they all require wiring in different areas (ceilings, walls, outlets, etc).
Sleeping loft lighting most often requires two-way switches (operation from both upstairs and downstairs), and these need to be accommodated electrically. Recessed lighting needs proper consideration in the shallow ceilings. Exterior lighting is important on a tiny home, and requires forethought.
