OUR STORY

Simon Joiner was following his passion when he entered the modular building and construction industry. In starting Tiny Homes Coast to Coast, Simon has pursued this passion further, combining his knowledge of the home building industry with an added twist, to provide “small homes, BIG ideas”.

 

From hands on fabrication to administration and management, Simon Joiner (General Manager / Owner) knows how to support a team. He has the ability to multi-task, whether it’s playing a supportive role or seeing a task through to completion.

Upon completion of his apprenticeship at the age of 21, Simon was offered the supportive role of Foreman. This entailed the preparation of work while appreciating that the older and more experienced members of the team completed the tasks.

Starting his own business at 23 (Simon’s Metal Shop), Simon specialised in Wrought Iron Works, however it was not long before he realised that he wanted more from his career.

Simon accepted a role with TR Homes as an Estimator, and it was over the next 6 years that he worked his way up to Manager, becoming General Manager under the ABN Group banner in 2006. With over 50 employees, TR Homes provides modular housing throughout the state of Western Australia, and is the leader in its industry.

With a growing family, a work-home balance was soon desired, so Simon took on several other positions. He was involved in a 55-home development in Newman followed by a supportive role in Malaysia before embarking on the supportive role of Operations Manager with the WBS Group. Over the next 2 years Simon held the position of General Manager at WBS Homes.

Throughout the 35 years of his career, Simon has fabricated, administered and managed multiple businesses and positions. It is with this experience, together with a passion for the modular building industry and a desire to maintain the Great Australian Dream, that Simon founded Tiny Homes Coast to Coast.

Q What are Tiny Homes made of?

Chassis / Frame

At Tiny Homes Coast to Coast, we make our chassis rails from a pre-galvanised tube, inclusive of the draw bar and webbing of the floor support.

Wall frames and trusses consist of light-weight steel, with a feature portal frame welded to the chassis to provide rigidity.

External cladding comprises a combination of materials, from corrugated iron to weather board cladding.

Internally, the options are endless and may include flush-finish walls and feature lining board.

Cabinetry and finishes are constructed using traditional building methods.

Q Why is a Tiny Home on a trailer?

Under regulations, a Tiny Home is not a building, but a caravan (trailer).

Regulations under the vehicle standards provide guidelines for trailer manufacturing of various weights. These regulations stipulate that a Tiny Home of up to 3500kg can be towed using a traditional vehicle, while a suitable vehicle must be used to tow anything above this, to a maximum of 4500kg.

The length, width and height of the Tiny Home are adapted to conform with the size of a caravan.

A Tiny Home is built using the same materials as traditionally constructed homes rather than those used to assemble traditional caravans. When constructing a Tiny Home, the weight of these materials is a crucial factor to consider.

Q How safe are Tiny Homes?

Because Tiny Homes are considered caravans, they are regulated as such. Under the Australian Standards there are stiff regulations in place with regard to both the construction of caravans and traditional homes

Construction of the chassis is rigid, while all Tiny Homes come with electric brake-away systems, offering braking during travel as well as a brake lock-up system if the trailer disconnects from the towing vehicle.

The traditional building materials used in the construction of a Tiny Home have been tried and tested over many years.
