Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need council approval for my Tiny House?

Our Tiny Houses are considered “Caravans” and do not require council approval. They will come with a VIN number that is pre-registered with the QLD Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR). Caravans do not require DA approvals from councils, but councils can limit the amount of time someone can permanently live in one. This ruling may vary from Council to Council and State to State. We strongly recommend contacting your local council for further information and current regulations.

Which Tiny House model is the most suitable for me?

Working out which Tiny House is the right one for you is quite an in depth process. There are many many aspects that will come together to make your Tiny House YOUR dream house and we are here to help make that dream become a reality.
Please feel free to call or email us from our GET A QUOTE page to discuss which model would best suit your needs.
Our architects and design team have created a variety of designs and sizes to select from. All of which can be customised specifically to suit your own design requirements.

Can you make some changes to your Standard Models / Designs?

Yes! All our designs can be customised / changed to suit your requirements. Just call or email us with the Design / Model and share your design ideas with us.

Do you sell Partly built Shells or Lockup stage houses?

Yes, we do both. This is a great way for people to undertake some DIY and save money in the process. However, we won’t build anything less than a Lockup Stage. We need to ensure the building is fully watertight and secure.

How long does it take to build? Is there a waiting list?

Build times can vary depending on the model and also if sold as a Shell or Turn Key stage. On average the build process takes around 8-10 weeks. Due to our current workload and the increasing popularity of Tiny houses, we do have a waiting list. However, please feel free to call or email us to discuss this further.

How much deposit is required before i can place an order for a Tiny House?

We only require a 20% non- refundable deposit. This guarantees and secures a building slot and delivery date that suits you. Once the deposit is made, we can begin the design process, order your trailer and start on our Tiny House journey together.

What is you payment plan?

We offer a payment plan that divides the total price into 5 instalments. Each instalment is due after completion of each stage as stated below; 20% - DEPOSIT. This locks in your design and build slot and once we have established the size of the trailer required, it will be ordered.
20% - payment due when your trailer arrives on site for us to start building.
20% - payment due when the framing skeleton is completed.
20% - payment due when the inside of the home is completed and only awaiting cabinetry.
20% - payment due when your tiny house is completed and ready for delivery.

Do you offer Off Grid solutions?

Yes. We have many Off Grid solutions to add to your Tiny House design. We offer full off grid solar system packages, a variety of composting toilet options, gas water heating system and gas appliances, rainwater storage tanks, pumps and water filters.

How do I connect to electricity?

Our standard tiny houses run on a 15amp mains power with a switchboard. The tiny house can be plugged in using an electrical power lead just like a traditional caravan. A solar system can also be installed at an additional cost or this can be added at a later stage. All our Tiny Houses come “Solar Ready”.

How do I connect to water?

Just like a conventional caravan, our tiny houses come standard with a standard garden hose plug connection. It`s that simple!!! Alternatively we can offer Rainwater storage tanks, pumps and gutter systems at an additional cost allowing you to go off grid.

How do I connect to gas? What gas type?

All our Tiny homes have a dual gas regulator that takes 2x LPG gas bottles as standard. You can use either a 9L barbecue gas bottle or even the tall long 40L bottles. Connection can be done by anyone, just like connecting the gas bottle to a barbecue.

Are the Tiny Houses insulated? What type of insulation do you use?

Yes, all our Tiny Houses are insulated. We use Earthwool Insulation bats R3.5 on walls and and a double layer in the roof.
We also offer insulated SMART glass windows at an additional cost, greatly minimising energy needed for heating and cooling. If you require insulation under the floor this is also an upgrade option.

Do you offer delivery?

We have partnered up with a reputable and reliable towing company that delivers Australia-wide. This service fully insures your Tiny House from our workshop to your doorstep. Delivery is an additional cost. Please refer to our delivery page or get in touch for a quote.

Can I connect to sewage mains? What other option do I have if I can`t or don`t want to connect to sewage?

Most of our Tiny Houses come as standard with a standard flush toilet. It is the customers responsibility to obtain the services of a qualified plumber to connect to sewage or septic tank. As an alternative and much greener option, we can install and supply waterless composting toilets that do not require a plumber on site or any connection.

Do Composting Toilets smell?

No they don`t! Composting toilets nowadays are very complex and effective systems. Their cost can range from AU$900 – AU$3,500 depending on size, model and a few other factors. They all come with an electric fan that works around the clock, however, they are very quiet and economical, drying the solids and also moving the air from inside the house thru the system and out.
