Tiny homes taking shape in Gosford

20170420_Roofs01.jpg

We received our Construction Certificate in early January with many thanks to Professional Certification Group, Wall to Wall Design + Consulting and Skinny Whippet Building Services for helping us reach this milestone. Since then we've been busy digging holes, laying pipes, filling trenches and jackhammering footings.

The last three weeks have been the most rewarding for everyone involved as floors went down and frames went up. Our four homes and two common rooms now have roofs and each day they seem to settle a little more into their landscape.

Introducing Hayley, Tiny Homes Foundation Ambassador

hayley_with_vote_home.png 

Hayley had no idea what a healthy relationship looked like for the first 20 years of her life. From the age of 14 Hayley was in and out of homelessness. 

Since finding permanent housing that is safe and secure Hayley has become a passionate advocate for people experiencing homelessness and affordable housing. 

We are incredibly pleased that Hayley has agreed to lend her voice to our endeavours to solve homelessness. We admire how Hayley, despite her disadvantaged background, is using her experience to shape solutions and guide discussions focused on housing and promoting dignity, safety and stewardship for anyone experiencing homelessness.

This graphic was created by Vicki Weetman (Tiny Living Australia) a current PhD candidate at Griffith University researching Tiny Housing Trends in Australia. Vicki's research research looks into our relationship with place/space and how it extends beyond the usual public conversation related to affordability factors and financial freedom.

Local surveyor helps homeless

 CBH_Updated_Logo.png

Last year we sent a 'shout-out' to local Gosford surveyors to help with surveying our first tiny home project. Chase Burke and Harvey were quick to put their hand up to support our goal of building tiny homes for the homeless.

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the team at Chase Burke and Harvey for generously donating their time and resources to surveying the site at 25 Racecourse Road, Gosford. Their professionalism, courtesy and reliability far exceeded our expectations and we look forward to sharing the progress of the project with them.

Who are Chase Burke and Harvey?
