Tiny Away stems from a desire to offer city dwellers a chance to experience the perfect escape from a hectic, digitally-laden lifestyle; creating an accessible way for everyone to embrace this new way of living in a handcrafted house.
Since launching in 2018, Tiny Away has 12 houses placed across Victoria, and has just added eight houses throughout NSW including Hawkesbury, Braidwood and Picton. The tiny house concept is part of an international trend of embracing sustainable living by reducing the size, and therefore the resource consumption, of homes without sacrificing quality of life. Tiny Away is considered one of the first companies to integrate the concept of “tiny houses” with eco-tourism.
The Tiny Away houses can sleep up to four people and includes a sofa bed in the lounge area, which converts into a double bed, a loft bed in the bedroom area, comprising of a queen sized mattress; a kitchenette with toaster, kettle and induction cooktop; minimalist sliding table top which serves as a cosy dining space; and a bathroom with a composting toilet and hot shower. There is an air-conditioner and heater, as well as an outdoor deck providing additional space for outdoor relaxation.
The six metre house is built and mounted on a trailer, allowing it to be moved from property to property, any time. The houses are also compliant with NSW Roads and Maritime Services regulations, making them legal to be towed across all NSW roads.
The popularity of tiny houses has resulted in the formation of the tiny house movement, an architectural and social movement educating people on the benefits of living in small homes.
Additionally, tiny living has less environmental impact. This is because with fewer utilities the carbon footprint is reduced.
