  • Why go tiny?
    Here are some reasons for a ‘wee’ livin lifestyle. 1. Simplicity - Tiny homes promote a simplified way of living. With limited space, you're encouraged to declutter and prioritize only what truly matters. Focus shifts from material possessions to experiences. Downsizing can reduce stress as you let go of the burden of excessive belongings and space. 2. Financial Freedom – Tiny homes can offer substantially lower costs than traditional houses, providing immense relief from today's financial pressures. Achieving outright ownership or mortgage freedom in a short time is possible. Off-grid solutions also can drastically cut utility expenses. 3. Reduced Environmental Footprint - Smaller living spaces inherently consume fewer resources, making tiny homes more eco-friendly and sustainable. They require less energy to heat, cool, and maintain. 4. Generate Income - Tiny living is ideal for Airbnb or many other accommodation options. Offer guests a unique experience, enabling them to connect with your property's natural environment — a delightful alternative amidst picturesque surroundings.
  • Can I customize my Tiny Home?
    Yes! We are happy to offer customized options to help create your dream home and will work with you to refine and adapt the design, ensuring it aligns with your specific needs. However, it is important to keep in mind that the maximum weight must remain under 4500kg, so the longer the home and the more detailed the fit-out, the harder it is to keep within the weight requirement. We aim to keep our tiny homes under 9m in length to allow room for great storage design and beautiful finishes. Should structural modifications be desired, additional charges may apply to obtain the necessary engineering specifications. Our goal is to collaborate with you in bringing your vision to life while maintaining the highest standards of safety and functionality.
  • Why do Tiny Homes have wheels?
    There are two main reasons why tiny houses are built on wheels. Firstly, building on wheels eliminates the need for a building permit, as such structures are classified as vehicles. Secondly, being mobile offers flexibility. Many tiny homeowners value the freedom of not being bound to a single location and appreciate the ability to relocate their tiny homes within their property or beyond.
  • Do I need a planning permit for a Tiny House?
    There is ongoing debate among councils as to whether a tiny house is a caravan, therefore being exempt from the Council Approvals. Or be considered a permanent structure, which would require a development application (DA). The level of progressiveness varies from one council to another, with many in the process of changing their policies with the help of some incredible pro-active tiny home advocates along with the Australian Tiny House Association who are working hard to point out the inconsistencies of the planning approach to tiny houses. It is important to understand that adhering to official vehicle dimensions (maximum width of 2.5m, maximum length of 12.5m and maximum height of 4.3m) is crucial. Additionally, the tiny home must remain under 4.5 tonne to be roadworthy. If these parameters are exceeded, the classification as a 'caravan' no longer holds, and approvals become necessary. Engaging with councils effectively involves demonstrating that the tiny home falls within the caravan category rather than being considered a building. Using the term 'tiny home' can cause confusion, potentially leading to unnecessary processes such as DAs and planning permissions. You might encounter other council regulations pertaining to utility connections, greywater and sewage management, and intended duration of habitation in your tiny house. These regulations need not be insurmountable obstacles if addressed strategically. Persistence is key. Don’t give up! Disclaimer: The information is general guide only. Please do your own research in your local council area to help you decide what the best path forward is for your tiny house journey.
  • How do I find land to rent for my Tiny House?
    Owning the land is not necessarily a requirement to fulfil your Tiny Home dreams. You can be the owner of your tiny house while renting the land it sits on. The beauty of a tiny house lies in its mobility—when circumstances change or opportunities arise, you can relocate your tiny house or eventually acquire land of your own. A rising trend involves situating tiny houses in the backyards of family members or friends. This not only brings families together but also shares living costs and responsibilities like mortgages and yard upkeep. Alternatively, some individuals opt to rent land from landowners or farmers in their desired locations. To assist in this endeavour, there are dedicated platforms like Tiny Real Estate, Park My Tiny House or other Tiny House Facebook groups that facilitate in finding land to rent. We recommend you organize your land before ordering your tiny house build.
  • How do I connect to electricity and water?
    We provide a convenient 15amp caravan connection for mains power and a safety switchboard, designed for a hassle-free plug-and-play setup. The tiny house can simply be plugged in using an electrical power lead. Our tiny houses come with a water inlet pipe that can be connected straight to mains water supply or from a rainwater tank and pump supplied by your plumber once on site.
  • What happens to sewage?
    Many of our tiny homes come with a standard flushing toilet ready for your local plumber to connect to sewer mains or your existing system. As an alternative we also offer the installation of waterless composting toilets. These toilets provide an eco-friendly option that doesn't necessitate an on-site plumber or any connection.
  • Can my Tiny Home be off grid?
    Certainly, your Tiny Home can function off-grid, and there are various options available to make this possible. For off grid living, it's important to evaluate the following aspects: 1. Solar and Battery Power: Solar requirements can differ based on factors such as the number of people living in the home, appliances being used, site location, and site orientation. A solar trailer can also a great option to provide power to your home when a regular roof top installation is just not possible. They can be positioned up to 50m away and orientated to perfectly capture the sun, adjusting to suit summer or winter light conditions. 2. Sewage and Grey Water: Commonly, off-grid tiny houses utilize a combination of a composting toilet and a greywater treatment system. Waterless composting toilets convert solid waste into compost, while greywater is treated through a filtration system and grease trap. This treated water can often be reused in your garden. However, it is recommended to consult your local council to ensure compliance with any specific regulations related to off-grid waste treatment. Our team can provide guidance and connect you with recommended off-grid solution providers for solar and battery power, composting toilets and grey water systems. Feel free to reach out to discuss your plans further!
  • Do you deliver?
    We have several reputable towing companies we use to deliver our homes. The total cost of the tiny homes does not include the delivery fee. Delivery calculations are based on travel from our location in Murwillumbah, Northern NSW, and are generally estimated at around $120 per hour.
  • Once delivered, can I take the wheels off?
    Yes, you have the option to remove the wheels from your tiny house once it's been delivered. However, we advise against doing so if your land is susceptible to flooding or bushfires. In such scenarios, leaving the wheels on is recommended. Your Tiny Home will still be considered a caravan, even if the wheels are off. To move it in the future, you can apply for an unregistered vehicle permit up to 28 days. A caravan must remain capable of being registered.
  • Financing for tiny homes
    As Tiny Homes on Wheels are considered vehicles and not buildings, they do not qualify for mortgages. There are several lenders out there who offer finance for tiny houses. WeeLivin’ Tiny Homes have partnered with Great Escape Finance (ACL: 444332) to help our customers get finance for their tiny house build Click here to find out more.
  • What options do I have if the location I want to put my tiny house has limited or difficult access?
    Engage in a discussion with us or your towing company to thoroughly assess the access situation. Factors like steep inclines, tight turns, narrow passages, low-hanging power lines, soft grounds and trees can pose challenges when positioning your house. As a minimum your access road needs to be 3m wide with 4.3m high clearance. Overhanging trees will need to be trimmed back. If access is particularly restricted, using a crane to carefully move your tiny house into its final position could also be a viable solution. Prepare a cleared, flat and level area for your tiny house. Concrete pads or compacted materials like crusher dust or road base can provide a solid foundation for the stabilizing legs. A professionally compacted area equivalent to the size of your house is optimal. However, it can often be fine to simply park in a nice flat area. Ensure that the chosen area isn't prone to low-lying wet spots. Depending on your location, we can provide an optional installation service that will include leveling your tiny house using individually adjustable stabilizing legs, ensuring optimal stability. If you're comfortable with this process or have someone capable of handling it, you also have the choice to organize the installation yourself.
  • Will my tiny house come with a warranty?
    Yes. All warranties for the products in your tiny house will be passed onto the new owner. We also provide a Building Warranty of 3 years whereby any issues will be corrected if they arise and are a result of incorrect workmanship. It will not cover any damage that may result during transportation of the tiny house (as we cannot control the quality of the towing job done/accidents etc). Electrical and gas work are carried out by our licensed professionals and compliance certificates will be issued upon completion.
