Hollyburton Organic Farm

Tiny House Building in Melbourne

Have you ever dreamt of owning a Tiny House? These great little spaces can be used for mortgage-free living, holiday homes or creative studios and are extremely portable. If you've read about or seen the growing Tiny House movement and now want to get hands-on learning how to build your own, then this is your chance! Come and build a tiny house at Hollyburton Organic Farm, just a short drive from Melbourne in the beautiful country air.

What will you learn at the Workshop

At our Melbourne workshop, you will build a 2.4m x 4m room on its own wheels. It’s a hands-on workshop and all the materials will be ready so everyone can be involved in the construction from the start to finish. Rob will explain all of the hows and whys as we go. So whether you have some building experience or you're feeling daunted and don’t know where to start with tiny house construction, come along and join in.

Areas of study and construction covered:

  • Drawing up plans
  • Fixing the structure to the base (trailer or truck)
  • Stud framing
  • Fitting windows and doors
  • Corrugated walls and roofing
  • Internal wiring
  • Insulation
  • Pine lining
  • Timber flooring
  • Built-in furniture
  • Architraves skirting's and cornices

All organic homecooked food and accommodation in one of our tiny houses are included. We use outside compost toilets and there are shared bathroom facilities. All you have to do is arrive on Thursday night for a fresh early start Friday morning, working on the house every day finishing Tuesday evening.

More about Rob Scott

Rob trained as an architect at Melbourne University in the early 90's but couldn't handle being stuck an office all day so he bought a farm instead. Over the last few years, he has been building gorgeous studio tracks and studio rooms for his family and clients. These trucks are fantastic extra spaces - just park it, plug in an extension cord and voila you have a beautiful room or house.
