My home will measure at 6 metres long, and 2.4 metres wide, hence the name.
In other words, I am building a Tiny House on Wheels
(That is, one of these bad boys below.)
Essentially it’s just a very small house, a wee dwelling, a humble abode. Not quite a caravan. There are many reasons people choose to build such a home, but for me, I desired a shelter that encouraged me to get out and about in the world but promised comfort and hot tea at the end of a long day.
‘When they got home, the Rat made a bright fire in the parlour, and planted the Mole in an armchair in front of it, having fetched down a dressing-gown and slippers for him, and told him river stories till supper-time.’

A most warm welcome to my very tiny corner of the internet! It may not be the busiest or most thrilling corner on the block but be assured it's where all the home-spun kids hang out. Well, maybe one day.. | The tiny house we are building will be my home! And my words are the ones you will be reading if you stick around! | Experience? Before this, incredibly minimal. I studied Visual Merchandising, then ended up in Payroll, so really this started out as a way to keep working on something creative, even if I was, and remain, completely out of my depth. All I can say is I owe the internet A LOT.

Hello Readers, My name is Chris. I really like making things and love a good project. When Fiona mentioned an interest in building a Tiny House I was instantly on-board. I have no experience building buildings, especially little ones on wheels, so it’s been quite a learning curve. I’m excited to see how things go.

I wanted to capture the small things, those moments of learning or difficulty which are often forgotten once all is done and dusted and you are finally standing in the glory of your completed home.
So how did a young-(ish) gal from the suburbs of Melbourne decide that building a tiny home was a good idea? Well for those of you eager to sink your teeth into a sweeping story of travel & coriander seeds, Visual Merchandising & filing, a ‘tiny’ dream and so much more, this page is for you.
The home itself may be a work in progress, but here you will find final hand sketches of the exterior and interior of my tiny home. These should help paint the picture of the ‘what’ and ‘where’ of everything!
