Oh give me a home, where the kangaroos roam, and the beer-holding budgie-smugglers play…
If you’re anything like me, you’ve dreamed of living out in the Australian outback with nine of the ten world’s most venomous snakes, several killer spiders, monitor lizards, saltwater crocodiles, dingos, and Tank Girl. (There’s a reason the Australian national language is hysterical SCREAMING.)

Most of us, when we think tiny houses, have a self-contained cottage in mind, but a shared wall can have a lot of advantages. Apart from being more energy efficient and generally located in metropolitan centers replete with all attractions of city life, you’ll have an opportunity to build a sense of community with your neighbors.
With this condo style tiny space, you’ll have all the modern conveniences, along with a balcony, high-security doors, central air, and lots of other high tech privileges. Those who appreciate the austerity of contemporary aesthetics will love this space, as well.

Living a tiny house doesn’t have to mean living in the boondocks. This beautiful little apartment is just a short walk away from the cafes and shopping district of Mordialloc, in Melbourne, and even has a fantastic second-story view of the beach.
Of course, you’ll have all the luxuries of a modern lifestyle, such as a split system HVAC unit, an intercom security system and more, but downsized for the mindset of a tiny house lifestyle. You’ll even have a private balcony to entertain your friends over a barbeque. (Insert shrimp on the barbie joke here…)

Designed to be towed on a trailer chasse, this fully furnished apartment is ready for you to relocate to your piece of the outback. It’s equipped with solar panels for some of your electricity needs, along with an outdoor shower for scrubbing with a beautiful view. (Australia doesn’t get cold in the winter, so you’re fine, but even if it does, you have a potbelly stove to keep your warm.)
