• The tiny non-profit making tiny homes happen in Australia.

  • More tiny homes in Australia.

    (That's the big mission.)

    • The main barrier to making this happen is council regulations.
    • We're here to help councils fix regulations, so more people can build tiny homes.
    • If you work at council and want to help, get in touch!

  • FAQs

    Lots of people have questions.

    Q: Who's behind this?

    A: We have a tiny volunteer board that has (many) tiny meetings every week.

    Q: How much does it cost to build a tiny home?

    A: Usually from $30K to $80K (Australian dollars). The cost of land is on top, and varies.

    Q: Where do people build tiny homes?

    A: Anywhere and everywhere!

    • Some people build a tiny home near an existing house, like a granny flat.
    • Others build in the country to have a tiny home away from home.
    • Many build in 'collectives', with a few homes clustered together: a tiny community.

    Q: Why build a tiny home?

    A: Many people find they just don't need a big home. Other benefits include:

    • They're super cheap to build.
    • Less space means less stuff.
    • They're easy to clean and fix.
    • Small spaces are cheap to heat and cool.
    • You can pick them up and move them!
    People like them for different reasons. While they're not for everyone, some people love them.

    Q: Where can I see more tiny homes?

    A: Here is both a global map and an Australian map:

    Unfortunately there are not many tiny homes in Australia yet. :(

    Q: What are latest council (& other) developments?

    A: Here is both an Australian list and another global list:

    We'll update this info regularly as there is a lot happening. :)
