Building a tiny house in oz

Why blog


Why.. Why … Why

It’s a funny question. Asking ‘Why’ indicates curiosity, maybe even confusion. A question of purpose and intent.. Asked by children out of curiosity or adults in sorrow and pain. Why.

So why blog?

To document a never done before project in Australia.

The plan is to build a tiny house. If you haven’t seen them before this is a house on a flat bed trailer. There are numerous plans available from various companies  but the aim is to build a fencl from tumbleweed tiny house company.  This is a company based in the USA, but as far as I know no one has built one in Australia. This blog will document the whole process, for myself as well as others who are interested in doing the same thing later.

  1. This is a very exciting project! I would love to know more about it… which state you are in, are you building it on a trailer, will you set up permanently on a block (and does local government allow this), how easy it is to connect services etc. Will be checking back here 🙂


    • Hi Sal
      Thanks for your comment. Building in Sydney, yes will be on a trailer. Makes it easier to avoid building laws like needing a DA or an owner builders licence. Legally it’s a moveable dwelling and doesn’t come under the same boat as a normal building would. Still looking into regulations for state and federal! Undecided about electricity/water but you can go both on and off grid with the plans.
