Spotted on the back streets of Mullumbimby this morning was a delightful tiny home on wheels.
Appearing to be made of recycled materials the number plates suggested it had made it all the way here from Victoria. The pull along home had two solar panels on each side of the roof and a chimney for a fire place to make it cosy on those colder mornings.
Stain glass windows and charming details inside including a patterned metal back to the stove reminiscent of traditional pressed tin ceiling panels made it a fun sight to start off the morning.
Since putting up the photo this morning The Echo has been informed that the tiny house on wheels belongs to Emmet. He is currently looking for a place to park his off-grid house within a 30 minute drive of Byron Bay. On his website he says he is ‘a mature, respectful and easy going 30 year old male. I am ecologically minded with a passion for simple living, recycled building, community development and regenerative agriculture. While staying in Byron Bay, I plan to run a number of tiny house educational workshops, as I did late last year in Melbourne and Sydney.’ The workshops are planned for March or April this year.
Along with its own solar system the tiny house has a shower, grey water system, water catchment/storage and small scale compost toilet making it almost totally self sufficient. If you are interested in contacting Emmet you can contact him via his Facebook page.
