Note to visitors: It is a rural property you will be coming to. The last 500m are on unsealed road; please be aware of this if it is raining and follow the directions of volunteers for parking. The ground is uneven and there will be some potential hazards on-site. Also please bring your gumboots if it is raining. We will have a raffle, BBQ and a coffee cart and we are raising money for Transition Village Wallan, so bring your coffee mug and gold coins!

We have a passion for tiny houses to promote affordable and sustainable living. We have two tiny houses to look at on this property. The Mayflower and the Mobility-friendly Tiny House.

This one is designed specifically for an 83-year-old lady with a ‘lift’ bed, mobility-friendly bathroom and ramp to the house.

Proving tiny houses can come in all shapes and sizes, and they really are suitable for everyone, everything in this home has been designed for independent living. The bench seat under the ‘lift’ bed is made-to-measure to suit the owner. The large deck adds additional space when the family comes to visit.

The bathroom has been built to accommodate a seat in the shower and the toilet has grab rails making it easy to use for those with restricted mobility.

Designed and built by Tiny Footprint. 

Gold coin donations on the day will go to Transition Village Wallan – a local non-profit organisation working towards whole community change to support a safe, sustainable and connected way of life for all members of our community.
