The Häuslein name is German for small cabin or cottage – a small dwelling with a big heart – where it’s warm, the lights are on and you’re welcome here. We named our company Häuslein Tiny House Co because of the German heritage of two of our co-founders, as well as our appreciation for German quality engineering which we seek to reflect in our tiny house builds.
The Häuslein Tiny House Co was founded in early 2018 by four friends with a shared passion to make a big impact in people’s lives. We are strategically located in Port Macquarie (half way between Sydney and Brisbane).
We’re passionate about a few things. We believe life is for living and enjoying. It’s about relationships and building a lifestyle that has time for the little things. Growing gardens, delicious, wholesome meals cooked at home, laughter around the table, tinkering on what you love, together. We want to live and promote the less-stressed life where we can be refreshed to be productive and give our best to the world and those around us. We want to live sustainably, generously and creatively, maximising resources and keeping it simple.
Affordability is a big issue in housing today so pricing is important. Our goal is to provide quality housing at an affordable price. Imagine being able to fully pay off your home in 4 years instead of 30! Or did you know you can park a tiny house (built on a trailer) in your backyard and legally have a member of your household live in it full time without any DA Approval? Another saving of your time and money!
We offer tiny houses you can buy. Our ‘Little Sojourner’ model starts at only $79,000. We also offer partial builds including trailer only, lock-up and shell stage builds, enabling you to complete your own tiny house from whichever stage you choose.
Downsizing doesn’t have to mean decreasing your quality of living either. You can have all the mod cons and comforts, like air-conditioning and dishwasher, that you may not even have in your current home. You also have the option to go off grid, enabling you to virtually eliminate those ongoing bills.
A tiny house opens up so many opportunities with an array of possible uses. A tiny home can be your full time abode, can be used as granny flat or guest accommodation, as a weekend retreat, a home office or can provide you with rental income through use in an Air B&B type capacity.
Add to this the fact that they are easily relocatable (road registered with the RMS and legally considered a ‘caravan’), and suddenly you have freedoms that a traditional home could never offer. No wonder so many Australians are catching onto this fantastic and simpler way of living!
