Do we need council approval?
Our tiny homes are considered caravans and do not require council approval. 
The tiny home comes with a VIN number however and do not require DA approvals from councils, but in some circumstances, councils may limit the amount of time someone can permanently live in a tiny home. This ruling may vary from council to council and state to state. We strongly recommend contacting your local council for further information and current regulations before purchasing your tiny home.


Do I need a special permit to drive my tiny home on the road?
The tiny homes are classified as caravans, so you don't need any special permits to drive or move on the road. You will need to have the appropriate vehicle that is capable of towing the tiny home as well as all towing attachments.

Have a chat to us about your requirements.
