FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CASTLEMAINE, Australia — 2 April 2020 — As real estate costs skyrocket worldwide, more people are deciding to build tiny houses to save money and have a smaller environmental footprint.
The question for many builders is how do you build a tiny home? Fred’s Tiny Houses teaches DIYers to build safe, well designed tiny houses on wheels. Their seven-hour online course, “How to Build a Tiny House,” covers everything you need to know about how to build a tiny house in Australia.
“I first developed these workshops in 2016 to share what I’ve learned over a decade of building tiny houses,” said Fred Schultz, founder of Fred’s Tiny Houses. “When people ask me about what goes into building a tiny house, I tell them to sign up for my workshop to save themselves years of research and expensive mistakes.”
The self-paced course includes handy summaries, downloadable documents, fun quizzes, and reference links. It’s also available as a resource for you to reference over and over again while building your house.
Students in the course learn how to select the right trailer, how to build a tiny house with off-grid technology like solar panels or composting toilets, and finally how to negotiate local regulations.
Tiny houses are growing in popularity among younger people, especially Millennials. They’re choosing these types of homes because the cost is only $20,000 to $50,000 each and the design is meant to be environmentally sustainable.
Owners of a tiny house can live anywhere. Building the house on a trailer means they can relocate to any part of the country or the world. It gives them the kind of freedom they couldn’t find in a traditional home.
