Do you have questions that need answers? Read more about our tiny houses for sale Gold Coast and beyond below.
Do I need Council approval?
Not necessarily. Many Councils don’t require approval, and you’ll only need a Private Certifier to approve construction. It depends on your location. A local town planner will be able to assist you with this information, or we are happy to help you with this.
What is the maximum allowable floor area I can have?
This is Council specific and each council often has different regulations. Typically, you can build between 50-80m2, or 1-3 bedrooms. A local town planner can also clarify this, or we are happy to assist.
How long will it take to build?
Generally, it will take 6-8 weeks to construct after your site is approved and ready to go.
Can I change the design?
We can offer you a customised designed service if you require. Call us to discuss your vision.
Can I subdivide my property?
Generally, adding a secondary dwelling does not allow you to subdivide your block. Both homes will remain on the one title.
Can I have more than one Funky Little Shack on my block?
Unfortunately not. Generally, councils only approve one secondary dwelling along with your existing or primary home on the block.
Can I just buy the plans and build it myself?
Yes of course! Call us to discuss which design you would like and we will email the design plans directly to you.
Can I choose a different colour for mine?
Of course! We’ll accommodate to your tastes and we’re happy to help with colour styling your tiny house.
Is this a kit home?
No. These are typically traditionally built on site like a normal home. However, some designs can come in prefabricated form and shipped/craned on site where the location is easily accessible.
Does my Funky Little Shack come with any warranties/guarantees?
Yes. You will receive all the standard warranties/guarantees that come with any new home build.
Can I get solar panels on mine?
Yes! Our Gold Coast team is passionate about building eco-friendly solutions and solar panels can definitely be added to your Funky Little Shack. They also come standard in our optional eco package.
Can I have air conditioning?
Yes of course. A system costs around $1500-2000 installed.
