Year seven students from Mullumbimby High School toured Humpy Co to learn about tiny living. Photo supplied.

Learning about tiny living year seven students from Mullumbimby High School recently visited the ’Humpy Display Village’ in the Bangalow Industrial Estate to explore the ideas behind Humpy Co.

Students toured the village and explored the range of Humpy dwellings on display as part of the unit they are currently studying at school. They got to learn how the pods are made from order to delivery, the wide range of uses they have, and how quick and easy a Humpy is to install – a Humpy can be installed in under a day. The team also touched on the impact and advantages of businesses being environmentally conscious.

Owners of the business Travis Lowe, a qualified carpenter of 15 years along with his father Brian Lowe, a registered builder for over 40 years, were able to take the student through the process of design and erection of these backyard pods.

‘The beauty of a Humpy is that it comes flat-packed, so can be installed without the need to remove fence panels or hire cranes. They are environmentally friendly, do not require footings and when you need to move it, simply dismantle it and take it with you’, said Travis.
