Motivated to design and build a thermally efficient, easy-to-construct tiny house, Tiny House Solutions has created a 6m x 2.4m quality and contemporary home that has been fitted out with an array of sustainable and environmental features. It has been designed with weight, strength and insulation at the forefront, to help reduce the occupant’s global footprint whilst remaining comfortable.

It has has ample room for sleeping, lounging, cooking and eating. It has a loft for extra space and a bathroom with composting toilet, vanity and shower. The Tiny House has been designed as a thermally efficient home with thermally broken, double-glazed windows, structurally insulated panels (SIPs), insulated floors, LED lights, instantaneous hot water, infrared heater panel, bamboo benches and plenty of storage. The Tiny House can be supplied with an 850–1000W off-grid PV system.

Designed and built by Tiny House Solutions and supported on the day by the Green Building Institute.

Donations on the day will go to Windermere, an independent community service organisation working across southeast Victoria to help those who need it most.

This Tiny Home is located on the same site as Green Design.
