Would you like to experience building a house in a less stressful and more streamlined way? The trend towards Tiny Homes has become both a social movement and an additional income stream.

Council regulations to build a tiny house or cabinDid you realise that you actually don't need council approval to build a 60m2 Tiny Home on your property? In as little as 10 days you can have the approval to build your own Tiny Home with minimal council intervention or objections from neighbours.
In 2009, the NSW Government released the Affordable Housing State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) which permits all residential home-owners with a property larger than 450m² (which also has a minimum 12m street frontage) to build a ‘Granny Flat’ on their property if their property is considered to be complying.
A ‘Granny Flat’ is a self-contained small house or Tiny Home (with a maximum living space of 60m²) which is built in the backyard of an already existing house. With this change comes a new way of processing ‘Granny Flat’ applications - home-owners wanting to build a Tiny Home in their backyard are no longer required to obtain Council approval as long as their application meets the minimum Complying Development requirements that have been set out.
