As a Sustainability Consultant, I have had a strong interest in the housing of people for the last 15 years. I am of the view that we need to provide a diverse housing mix that responds to our societal needs, reduce the barriers, and support those seeking an alternative housing option.
A growing number of people are experiencing emergency accommodation, short term housing, house sharing, couch surfing, car camping and homelessness. We need to expand the conversation with local councils and explore ways of sharing our land and housing for those needing shelter.
Over the coming months, Tiny House Solutions is building a prototype of an affordable Tiny House as a contribution to the alternative housing mix. It will be launched at the Melbourne Sustainable Living Festival in 2018.
I have also commenced discussions on alternative housing options with Officers at my Local Council and to explore ways to offer a legitimate response to affordable housing shortages.
If you are interested in collaborating to help promote alternative housing options, please send me a message.
