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.
A tiny house village in Christchurch’s red zone
We’re working with Regen Chch and CCC to propose a small village of tiny houses.
This would allow us to showcase a sustainable urban community while utilising land not fit for traditional builds. Our proposal aims to
- Nurture the land and provide security to the neighbouring communities
- Provide a social hub for events and community driven initiatives
- Engage with council to provide a better understanding of Tiny Houses
- Create a framework to help with future Tiny House villages
