TINY HOUSE OFFERS SHELTER TO THOSE IN NEED

COMMENCING IN MAY 2017 KIWI SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR MARK PHILPOTT LEAD A VOLUNTEER TEAM IN AUSTRALIA ON A JOURNEY TO DESIGN AND BUILD A TINY HOUSE ON WHEELS.

The journey for this tiny house is significantly different to other tiny houses in that it will be used to house people impacted by domestic violence in Australia.

The tiny house has been designed and built primarily by young Australian students who work in the trades industry, and Philpott’s not for profit organisation Humaneity has collaborated with over 55 companies who have donated materials and time to help make the project a success.

Humaneity’s tiny house offers crisis shelter.

Extensive use was made of Climateline, a powder coated plasterboard wall lining that eliminated the need for plastering/painting supplied by New Zealand company Climate Surfaces.

The tiny house is due for completion in December.■
