Yes, our Tiny Homes can be relocated. If you have purchased the base trailer, then this is the easiest way to move it on private land, or you can transport it on a truck (a crane will be required).

However, prior to moving, the building will need to be folded. Any plumbing, electrical, or fixed services will need to be disconnected by a qualified tradesperson. All internal furnishings, flashings, kitchen, and cover strips will also need to be removed to fold the cottage.

We recommend checking with your local council and landowner to ensure that your new Tiny Home location will be suitable and meets any regulations and requirements.

Overall, if you plan to relocate your Tiny Home, it is important to ensure that all necessary preparations are made beforehand to ensure a smooth and successful move. If you are unsure or have any questions, call our customer service team on 1300 046 273

No, our tiny homes don’t come with a hot water system.

Our relocatable tiny homes can be placed on various foundations, depending on the cottage configuration and location. The most common types of foundations for tiny homes include a concrete slab or pads (footings). You can also use a variety of stumps (or piers) or high-level compacted ground.

A concrete slab or pad foundation involves pouring a solid, reinforced concrete base directly onto the ground, providing a stable surface for the tiny home to rest on. Compacted ground foundations involve leveling and compacting the ground using a plate compactor or roller to create a firm and level base for the tiny home. Finally, concrete or steel stumps (piers) are used mainly to elevate a tiny home off the ground, providing a sturdy and durable connection to the foundation. This is often used in cases where the ground is uneven or when circulation of air is required in high-humidity areas.

Ultimately, the choice of foundation for a tiny home will depend on factors such as the local climate and soil conditions, as well as the preference and budget of the homeowner. It’s important to consult with a licensed contractor or engineer to determine if you need any soil testing (compaction and soil movement) and engineering (for weight loads into the foundation or ground) for your tiny home.
