Except from development!!!

You have no idea how good it is to read those words!!! In oz there are council, state, and federal laws regarding building “new dwellings”. My head hurts from all the rules and regulations but from what i understand according to council laws tiny houses are exempt from requiring a development application or DA. This is an expensive process as well as a long one so I am very happy!!

According to local council tiny houses are exempt from requiring a DA because they are ‘ moveable’ and registrable’ This council has a free service with a ‘duty planner’ so I will contact them this week to clarify but all looking good!!

Next stop: talk to council as well as other builders, caravan manufactures, other government agencies to clarify building laws.
