When thinking which model is best for you, it’s important to consider:

  • Lifestyle and usage: are you looking for a full-time residence, a vacation getaway, or guest house?
  • Size and layout: think about the number of occupants, whether you need a dedicated workspace or storage solutions? Do you prioritise a larger kitchen, a cozy loft, or a spacious living area?
  • Budget: determine your budget as this will influence the size and features of your Tiny Home.
  • Environmental considerations: you may wish to consider models that incorporate energy-efficient features and off-grid capabilities?

If you are still unsure of what model suits you best, our experienced team is here to help. We can discuss your requirements, preferences, and concerns to guide you towards a design that would suit you best.

Tiny Homes are classified as a ‘vehicle’, similar to a caravan. This is also why Tiny Homes don’t require a building permit. Tiny Home owners enjoy the freedom of being able to move around with their house, including the ability to live off the grid.

This is not recommended. Caravans are built for regular travel – Tiny Homes are not due to their height and weight. They are built to be moved less often and normally most standard motor vehicles are not licensed to move them.

Tiny Homes are transportable and can be located almost anywhere on your property and not subject to any other planning restrictions (flood, bushfire, etc). In addition, no Council Approval or contribution fees are applicable.

The maximum dimensions of a Tiny Home are:
• 2.5m wide
• 4.3m high (from the road)
• 10.0m long (*due to weight restrictions)
• 4.5 tonnes in weight

The following needs to be considered when
deciding where to park your Tiny Home:
• Delivery access and is a Crane required?
• Flat, stable land to park your Tiny Home
• Over-hanging trees
• Services connection (water & electrical)
• Waste management (sewer & other waste)
• Stormwater and Guttering
• Ancillary spaces such as decks, awnings, etc.
