CREATING AFFORDABLE HOUSING WHILE USING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
Stay Tiny Co is a family run business based in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, with Australia-Wide deliveries. With 48 years of experience in the building industry between us we decided to put our passion for tiny homes and unique ideas together to create more affordable housing, while also lowering our environmental footprint by using sustainable materials and practises.
WHY STAY TINY
Going tiny can be a great option for almost anyone. It can be used to permanently live in, a weekender, a granny flat, a man cave/she shed or even as a form of income through BnB/other. With housing prices increasing a Tiny is an affordable option for someone who would still like to design and watch their home come to life without spending hundreds of thousands.
Buying a house can be a big decision as it locks you into that location; though with a Tiny you can bring it with you anywhere in Australia! And we offer Australia-wide delivery. We can help you own your dream Tiny: you're welcome to work with us to create plans and custom design your own home.
WHY STAY TINY WITH US
At Stay Tiny Co we strive to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. Materials we use are toxin free, cruelty free, low to no VOC and low-no formaldehyde glues. We work with you to build your home within your budget and time frame to the best of our ability.
Want to go off-grid? Great, as Stay Tiny Co home's have the option to go fully off-grid
See FAQ's below for more info.
At StayTinyCo we don't have set models. We prefer to communicate with the client to discuss their wants and needs and build a home they have envisioned. We like customer interaction and often it can save you money by doing some littles odds and ends if you wish. Please see our quote document attached in the quote page below and fill out and return the form to us for a pricing on your home. Below are some photo's of previous builds to get an idea of our work and see just how wonderful a toxic and chemical free home can actually look!

Do I need council approval for my Tiny?
Our THOW’s (Tiny House On Wheels) are classed as “Caravans” and do not require council approval. They will come with a VIN number so that it can then be registered in your state or territory. This being said please contact your local council as Tiny Home laws are constantly changing.
How do I connect to services?
For power you can simply plug in an electrical power lead just like a caravan. If you wish to add solar our solar system is built separately and will simply plug into the same socket for ease of use. With water, you can simply plug in with a standard garden hose connection! Other options include rainwater storage tanks, pumps and gutter systems. We have options for induction hot plates, or if you would prefer gas, we can set up our bio-gas systems. Another option is to have a gas regulator that takes regular barbecue LPG gas bottles. Connection can be done by anyone, just like connecting the gas bottle to a barbecue.
Do you offer off-grid solutions?
Yes. We offer all your off-grid desires with solar system packages, an array of composting toilet options, bio-gas and/or solar water heating system and bio-gas appliances, rainwater storage, pumps and water filters.
Do you sell Partly built shells or Lockup stage houses?
Yes. If desired we can build your Tiny up to lock-up stage. That way you can personally finish off your home yourself. We can offer some tips and tricks if you decide to go this way to help you finish off your Tiny the best it can possibly be.
How much is required for a deposit?
After discussions about what type of Tiny you would like, we require just $20,000 deposit to start your build. The rest will be required as different stages are completed. Such as lock-up stage, fit-out Etc.
Do you deliver?
Yes. We offer Australia-wide delivery. Please get in contact for a quote.
