Date: 21-22 November, 2016
Time: 7.30am – 6.00pm
Location: QUT Gardens Point Campus – Green lawn between P Block and the Goodwill Bridge

 

As part of the conference QUT has organized a display of a new innovation in Tiny Houses.

A Big World Home is a portable, completely off-grid house that can be built by two unskilled people in just a few days using only a hammer and a drill. It is a revolutionary form of affordable transitional housing that aims to bridge the gap between renting and owning.

At 13.75m2 this tiny home comes completely fitted out with a living room, bed, running water and a plumbed bathroom. The entire structure itself is self sufficient with solar panels and inbuilt rainwater tanks.

This world-first patented technology integrates insulation, waterproofing and structural integrity within 39 panels that are modular, adaptive, cheap, durable and easy to install.
