Originating in USA as an affordable housing option, the Tiny House movement has quickly spread around the world. In Australia, where the average home is around 186m², the Tiny Home trend is seeing new dwellings constructed at just 11m².
Taking on the challenge of constructing tiny houses, Tom Jacobson from Perth Tiny Homes has erected an 18m² home using products from Studco Building Systems. Measuring only 7.2m long, 2.5m wide, and 4.3m high, the tiny house also extends with a fold-out deck and veranda.
Tom opted for Studco steel stud and track systems for the construction of his tiny house, as a lightweight and durable option that would create a solid structure for the home.
The Studco team were available to assist Tom with any technical enquiries along the way, to ensure that his build went smoothly.
“Over all [Studco] product worked really well for this build and I would use it again to build another one,” says Tom.
