You Can Explore These Teeny-Tiny Cabins At A Festival Next Month

Who needs a big house to live in when there is a whole world to explore?

The cost of living in Sydney and Australia continues to make it difficult for Australian millennials to break into the traditional housing market. Nowadays, we are among some of the world’s least likely to be homeowners as house prices and wages struggle to see eye-to-eye. This has led to the rise of rentvesting—the idea and practice of buying a house in an up-and-coming, affordable area so as to rent it out while you continue to rent in the area you’d prefer to live. But what if there is another alternative? (Feature image: @tiny.away)

That’s right. And because we all know that home is where the heart is, then maybe, just maybe, we don’t need to continue buying bigger and bigger houses. What we need are tiny homes to help us reduce our ecological footprint and manage our finances. Or even tiny portable homes to take with us wherever we decide to go, live, work or play, whether it be the city, the bush or up-and-down the coast.

The Tiny Houses movement is all about ‘simplifying our lives by reducing the size and therefore the resource consumption of our homes without sacrificing any quality of life.’ And the team behind the Tiny Homes Carnival is keen on providing the community with education and information on Tiny House Living.

Spread over the weekend of March 7-8 at the St Ives Showground, the Tiny Homes Carnival is big on info. From talks on living in an urban environment to how the Tiny House movement benefits the wider community, and also the legalities of a tiny home to a dozen (and counting) exhibitors showcasing their designs and builds, the weekend is sure to satiate your curiosity.

To add to the carnival atmosphere, expect live music on both days (Josh Paul, Eastbound Buzz, Leonie Kingdom, and Parkville), a special guest appearance from hosts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin of Tiny House Nationas well as activities for kids.
