Keith and Jen Lovelock, are tiny homeowners who put their creative brains to the test building a yellow submarine tiny house

We all know the famous song “Yellow Submarine” by The Beatles that was released in 1966, and this tiny home brings that song to real life. Since its release, people all around the world have obsessed with the notion of a yellow submarine.

Keith and Jen spent years building a yellow submarine tiny house in Marton, New Zealand, out of a grain silo shell. Back in August of 2020, YouTube channel Living Big In A Tiny Home went to check out their impressive tiny home masterpiece.

It all started when Jen saw a silo while driving and thought “Wow, that looks like the shape of a submarine”

That’s when Jen scoured the internet and found an old silo for a dollar, brought it back home and the real work began. Slowly, they transformed the old grain silo into their yellow submarine tiny house.

Piece by piece, they built it from the ground up, using all sorts of different materials like radar dishes and pieces of solar panel.

The outside of the yellow submarine tiny house is magnificent, but the inside is just as amazing

The inside of the yellow submarine tiny home is also incredible, with a submarine theme the whole way through. They collected everything from an old school deep-sea diving helmet to a manikin dressed as a captain to add flare to their tiny home.

To get inside, a massive radar dish lifts to reveal the hidden door that opens into the yellow submarine oasis. Right when you walk in, there’s a spacious living room and kitchen.

Straight through the back of the yellow submarine is a room with bunk beds and a bathroom with a walk-in shower

To the right is stairs that lead up to a second level where there are offices for Keith and Jan, but probably the most impressive thing is the number of old ship memorabilia that lines the inside of the tiny home. Everything from escape hatches to an old missile shell, intercom system, and a ton of old pressure gages decorate the yellow submarine.

It runs electricity off of a mains power with a 12-volt battery back up, and a small high-pressure hot water cylinder that gives you about 5 minutes of showering.

The best part, you can rent this unique yellow submarine as your Air BnB
