What is a Tiny House?
Tiny Houses typically have all of the main amenities you use in a normal house, but in a space-efficient and cosy manner. Often they’re movable e.g. built on a trailer.
What are the benefits?
Tiny Houses are an affordable and flexible option, especially for first home buyers. They support a minimalist culture and reduce demand on the environment. They also get around many of the costly consent processes.
What does the Society do?
We host social events and learning workshops to engage the community and share knowledge. We also actively share and maintain info via the Facebook group.
We’re working with Regen Chch and CCC to propose a small village of tiny houses.Read more
In 2017/18 we worked closely with CCC to produce a document covering many of the frequently asked questions regarding legislation and when consents are required. It is a very valuable read if you’re interested in building or hosting a tiny house, particularly in Christchurch. https://www.ccc.govt.nz/consents-and-licences/building-consents/types-of-projects/tiny-houses/Read more
