Tiny houses making a big impact down under!

The Tiny House movement has been moving forward in leaps and bounds in the last few years in Australia, with a number of Australian tiny houses featured on programs such as Living Big in a Tiny House, and news articles and opinion pieces popping up on an almost weekly basis. A recent landmark decision in Brisbane is also a positive sign for those hoping to make tiny houses their full-time homes.

This enthusiasm and need for tiny living is now reflected in Tiny Houses appearing at events and festivals. Australia has a great opportunity to see three tiny houses at Melbourne Knowledge Week 2018 (MKW18).

MKW18 is an exciting program of events in Melbourne City Centre focussed on connecting people, place, research and technology to imagine the city of the future. It will explore opportunities, tackle the urgent challenges, and share skills to help shape the future of Melbourne, so could tiny houses be a part of this solution? The tiny houses will be displayed in a Tiny Solutions showcase from Friday May 11 to Sunday 13 May.

Tiny Solutions is a collaboration of tiny homes change-makers including non-profits, builders and tiny home dwellers, who want to enable this smart housing alternative to grow and thrive, in order to better support citizens and the planet. The aim of the event is to educate and inspire potential solutions. It will demonstrate how tiny homes do more with less while catering to a broad range of community needs, offering an alternative model of sustainable, affordable and self-sufficient housing.

For those lucky enough to be near Melbourne you can take a tour of the three tiny homes set up around the Melbourne CBD.

You’ll hear from tiny house suppliers, learn about legal issues, permits, environmental and social impacts, as well as have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
