What is a 'Tiny House'?


Tiny Housing stems from an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in smaller homes while better addressing affordable housing, minimilism, off-the-grid lifestyle,  while reducing environmental impact and in many ways helping people establish a better connection with others through a sense of communitas, nature and sharing economy.

The Australian Tiny Housing Association defines a Tiny House as "moveable dwellings up to 50m2* that are suitable for residential use. Tiny houses can be largely grouped into 2 categories: on wheels or on skids. (*for one dwelling, excluding if they are connected)"

What is a 'Tiny Village'?

We define a Tiny Village similarly to an Ecovillage; which the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) defines as an intentional or traditional community using local participatory processes to holistically integrate ecological, economic, social, and cultural dimensions of sustainability in order to regenerate social and natural environments; geographical locations may remain fixed sites similar to those of a caravan park, however communities may be transient or move as a mobile pop-up event, festival, convergence or special interest group like disaster recovery & regeneration, or a conference, so they naturally experience churn and dynamic liquidity helping people rediscover their natural sense of community, as well as helping them find their tribe.

Find out how this village model may be a key stepping stone to re-introducing people living in the western world to more connected communities for the future.

Learn how these types of eco smart housing parks may help overcome community isolation and disconnection, and start to regenerate the small village living model for a more meaningful, sustainable and effective way to live.
