Brisbane Local Food

Growing local



There has been a lot of discussion about small homes - compact, sustainable, off grid, interesting design. Quite a few of us seem interested in the idea, if not the reality quite just yet!

I love the idea. I keep telling people I would be happy to live in a tent if I had my garden around it. A well built small home would be better!

We can but dream.

Add away. Post your thoughts, photos and links.

Isn't this just the prettiest little thing. It's at the Wongari Eco Retreat but looks perfect to me as a tiny house.

And a little extreme even for the most frugal of us! Christa have you read about MOs (multiple occupany)? Great idea but also many challenges..... There are lots of communities like this in the Northern Rivers region of NSW so you could perhaps visit one if you are going on the Daleys trip.

Now that is tiny. Trying to figure out where the loo is! I would need some outdoor cover area to go with it - or that meeting house you talk of Christa.

Convincing the council to have a multiple dwelling on a suburban or even a semi-rural block will be the challenge.

Found this on a website, wouldn't it be great if we could be satisfied with this single living tiny A- frame.  You could build a little community of tiny houses with a larger meeting house. So many positives, using a combined garden, sharing water and power etc.  Though there are negatives, everyone would have to get used to me in my pyjamas for a couple of hours in the morning.

Remarkable story about Peter and the village he built Dave.

Architecture of note.

I'm a corrugated iron junkie. Love the stuff. And it works in Fiji.The design is brilliant...esp with the breezeway...esp in the tropics/sub tropics. 

 Great images of these wonderful homes. $12,000 each to build..

We're all impressed with the photos of the Blackbutt house Christine. Looks like it's all decorated and liveable these days.
