Natascha and Stephen were empty-nesters who had spent a lot of time travelling between India and Australia. When their son was able to purchase an acreage that allowed for other dwellings, the couple jumped at the opportunity to erect their off-grid yurt.
They’re both teachers, and while the 8-meter-wide yurt might not be “tiny” to some, this downsize has allowed them to get closer to the land and live more sustainably. One look out their window and you see why you might choose this lifestyle!
I love that while Natascha has downsized significantly, she didn’t cut back to the bare minimum — for example, she loves spinning and weaving, and kept the tools of her trade that she needed! She shared more wisdom with us in the Q&A you can read after the photo tour of her yurt home. Enjoy!
Yurts bring all the joy of tiny living, and make it round! This vacation yurt in Australia checks all the boxes for a fun holiday, with a stargazing dome, comfortable queen bed, and lovely windows with bush views.
The yurt itself has a large deck complete with a kitchenette and outdoor shower, and there’s a composting toilet in the nearby outhouse. Also on the private property is a shared yoga studio with a sauna and a pool. Luxurious!
You can book your stay in this tiny spot over at Airbnb.
Cally and Luke bought a Red Gum THOW from Treehab in Australia, which gave them the financial freedom of no mortgage, while also allowing them to have a home before they were ready to settle down in one place!
They share on the Treehab website all about why they went tiny here. The couple moved in just about 4 months ago, and have been making it theirs, adding shelving and decoration and making it fit with their lifestyle.
Enjoy the photo tour below, and be sure to read their story at Treehab! You can also follow their tiny life on Instagram here.
Check out this stunning stacked modern cabin in Australia. The downstairs houses the kitchen and bathroom area, while upstairs is a bedroom leading out to a lovely raised terrace with bush views.
The home sits near Litchfield National Park in Rakula, where there’s plenty of outdoor activities and sports for everyone. The container comes with WiFi, air conditioning and a BBQ grill, too. It can sleep two or the hosts can add an extra bed for children. Book your future vacation via Glamping Hub.
Today we’re introducing you to Rolling Homes in Australia! They’re an amazing family-run tiny house company which specializes in gypsy/vardo-style builds (although they’ve also built a tiny house!).
Their first model, the Gracie, is a traditional roll-top gypsy caravan with a canvas roof and magical queen-sized bedroom nook. It has custom hand-painted artwork on the front and was sold for use as an Airbnb (you can book it here). That said, a caravan like this could make a great guest cottage, office space, or even a full-time home if you’re ok with finding bathroom facilities on the road like many van-lifers.
The home has a stunning vintage feel to it and stands out from the crowd. This model starts at $58,000 AUD )(~$41,000 USD). You can learn more about Rolling Homes here.
