Tiny House on Wheels Workshop (Oct 17-22)

Samuel Alexander – is a lecturer with the Office for Environmental Programs and research fellow at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI), University of Melbourne. He also co-directs the Simplicity Institute.

For those in Victoria, here are details of an upcoming “Tiny House on Wheels” workshop out at Wurruk’an. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to apply as spots are limited and are likely to be filled quickly. I’ve been part of four of these workshops now – this will be my fifth – and each of them have been utterly fantastic.

Come to Wurruk’an and learn the process of building a low-cost tiny house on wheels using reclaimed building materials. Work along side an experienced carpenter and learn a wide range of carpentry and building skills. The workshop will be suitable for all people (over 18 yrs), irrespective of building experience.


The build will be taking place on a permaculture property in Eastern Gippsland, located about 1 hr 45 mins away from Melbourne by car or train. Accommodation will be in the form of camping (bring own gear) and all meals will be provided, utilising fresh, local, organic produce. Composting toilets and a basic private shower block utilising shower bags are provided for attendee’s.

This is going to be fun! Come and help build the future of sustainable housing.
