An Australian hand made tiny house on wheels, built primarily using reclaimed timber and steel.

The tiny house on wheels was hand built at very low cost from recycled materials, the majority being scavenged and recycled for free from demolitions, renovations, skip bins, tips and sawmills. The tiny house design incorporates the ability to thrive on or off grid, utilising rainwater, a wood fire heater, gas cooktop, and solar power.

Although it was not by any measure a one man effort. I was very lucky to have the generous assistance and support of many skilled carpenters, engineers’, architects, designers, friends, family and passionate DIY amateurs along the way.

Construction of the house took place at Wurruk’an, eco-village located in West Gippsland Victoria between 2015-2016. Part of the build process is included in the feature length documentary ‘A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity’.

This tiny house is free to visit in Nina’s House, no bookings required. Tour tickets are required for Nina’s House and can be purchased here.
