At Off Grid Tiny Houses we prioritise improvement over expansion and the homes we build reflect this.  We beleive that a well-designed space can be more functional than a poor layout several times it's size.  "Bite-sized" housing has softer ecological and economical impacts for both the occupier and their surroundings

Our customisable Tiny Houses on Wheels (THOWs) start at $69,500 (GST inclusive).  Please see videos below for details.

All of the models shown above may be customised to our discretion and pricing is adjusted accordingly.  Optional extras may include: custom cabinetry, extra windows, standalone solar (quality installations range from $14,000) etc.  Click here for info about our purchasing procedure.

Why us?

  • Lightweight & robust:  Great care is taken in both engineering our THOWs and selecting materials to ensure they don't exceed 3500kg.  This means that even our largest dual loft models can be transported by many Aussie 4WDs thereby reducing transportation costs and increasing possibilities. 


  • Road-ready:  Our VSB1 compliant THOWs are stamped with a unique VIN and ready for relocation.  A rugged galvanised steel and aluminium frame ensures peace of mind during transit and the lifetime of the home.  Electrical and gas certification is provided and the water inlet and outlet are easily connected on site.

  • Energy efficient:  Exclusive use of double glazing and high performance insulation batts (in walls, floors and ceilings) ensures that every effort is made to reduce the need for heating and cooling.  A smaller house already requires much less energy to run despite these improvements.

  • Experts in off grid solar:  As accredtied installers of Selectronic battery inverters (made in Australia) we are able to offer an unbeaten 10 year warranty on their world-class products.  Our passion for renewable energy and years of experience living off the grid testifies to the importance of installing only the most reliable and functional systems available.

  • Guttering for rainwater catchment is often installed on a THOW at the detriment to internal floor space.  This is because the maximum allowable width is 2.5m total.  We install recessed guttering to eliminate this problem.

  • Stairs:  Experience living in THOW tells us that athough ladders can be space-saving, a pregnant woman would generally prefer to take a staircase to the bathroom at 3am!  This has proven to be quite widespread among the non-pregnant alike.  We install stair access to lofts in our homes for this reason.

  • Premium timbers:  Much care is taken in selecting quality timbers for our homes.  Lightweight and stable timbers are often more expensive than others however we beleive they are crucial to good design.

  • Access to electrics & plumbing:  Our unique trailer flashing enables easy maintenance of services.

  • 12 month warranty:  Details are available for download here.

  • Delivery available to suitable Victorian addresses for competitive prices.

  • We are the "real deal":  Construction of our Tiny Houses is powered exclusively by an off grid solar system installed on a Tiny House.  We have worked and lived as a family with this system for more than 5 years.

We came across Tiny Houses on Wheels when searching a simple yet comfortable living solution.  In all honesty, our first thoughts were: "That sounds like a caravan".  However, contrary to a typical caravan, a THOW is generally built for liveability over mobility.  We also discovered that THOWs in Australia can actually qualify as caravans if they meet specific requirements.  The question then was: "How do we build a home that is legally a caravan?"

Following much careful planning, in 2015 we set to welder to steel and commenced our first THOW build.  Construction was completed in our "spare time" on top of our full-time work.  Over many years we have built up our set of skills and experiences; from stonemasonry, construction industry, several major property renovations and guitar building. These vast experience meant that the design and build processes happened with ease and fluidity.  Within a year, we had a home which was arguably more functional than most. Functional in the sense that it harvested and stored it's own energy, compost and rainwater.  Despite the house being only 8.2 metres long, it features modern comforts such as: a dishwasher, full sized appliances/benchtops etc.  The monthly running costs total approximately $15AUD for LPG refills.  The standalone solar system was rigorously tested by not only running the home but also a large workshop. 


People who live in Melbourne are accustomed(often begrudgingly) to periods of rain lasting for several days.  Solar yield is reduced over these periods and a backup generator is often used.  The generator in our standalone solar system was used for only 8 hours in it's first year of operation!  The home was comfortable through four seasons and we were well rewarded for our considerate design.

Our experience of living a modern lifestyle whilst being powered by nature's daily offerings inspired us to share with others so we established Off Grid Tiny Houses to offer affordable yet thoughtful mobile housing. Much care is taken to ensure that our homes comply to all relevant Australian Standards.  To compliment the off-grid solar systems, we exclusively install double-glazing and high performance insulation in the walls, floors and ceilings to secure an even higher level of energy efficiency. The standalone solar systems are optional on all of our homes, but we do encourage everyone to consider a more affordable sustainable lifestyle; we would love to see all of Australia powered by renewable energy alone.
