It’s never easy being the first to do something, especially when that something is building a tiny house on wheels! In this weeks episode we travel to Yerrinbool in New South Wales, Australia to visit the first tiny home ever to be built in Australia.

The basic design of this tiny house was based on a Tumbleweed XS model from the USA, but was given a uniquely Australian flavour and constructed from super light-weight materials that would make it legal to travel on Aussie roads.

Inside, the home follows a rather traditional tiny house lay-out, only everything has been compacted to fit into this small yet functional space. Entering the home, you’re greeted by a small couch with storage on one side, and a folding table with stools over the other.

This small size and lightweight framing and cladding have helped this Australian tiny house to come in at only 2 tonnes.After a time spent traveling, this tiny house has found it’s place in Australian tiny house history and now sit’s on a beautiful farm for rent as a B&B.

At 3.6 meters (12ft) in length, this home is the ideal length to hang a hammock and so attachment points were installed. This hammock is a great place to relax and get out of the Australian summer heat and it also can provide another sleeping option for guests in the home.
