Q: Who's behind this?

A: We have a tiny volunteer board that has tiny meetings every month.

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 maintain.

  • 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:

The number of tiny homes in Australia is growing. :)
