Go Green by Exploring Compact Living
Fess up! We have all watched them on television, me more keen than most, as the idea of going off-grid aligns with all my greenie ideals. Well, three enthusiastic friends have started their own company in Salisbury and they had their first open inspection recently. They had more than 400 attend and over a thousand expressed interest, in case you are in doubt of their broad appeal.

Custom Made Exterior

Greg is a carpenter/builder, while Andrew and Lara are architects, who built their own tiny house last year. We got to see their workshop and two near completed tiny houses, each custom built and costing about $150,000. They were delightful, huge timber decks, more cupboards and maximum ceiling height gave a great feeling of spaciousness.

These photos are from that day before the crowds arrived, but please visit their website for plans, prices and photos of their own home, where they live and will bring another little person into soon. Sure, they cost more than in the US, but that could be because over there it's a well-established movement with more specialist outlets. Here it's still in the infant stage and hopefully as it grows, the prices will also come down.

Another Interior

They had also started to frame up their next two commissions and have plans for a two module/pod model selling for $79,000. One pod is more the living space/bedroom that can be used for a granny flat, studio, guest room, etc in your own backyard. The other module comes with plumbing for a fully fitted bathroom and kitchen, which could be useful while renovating your own.
