Community Collaboration – The Tiny House Project

Back in September 2016 a collaboration idea was born at Helensvale State High School.  Just a few short months later a cluster of local, and national company’s have now come on board to support the Tiny House Project at Helensvale State High School.

Students, Teachers, Parents and local community members with the support of over 20 businesses will shortly commence building the schools first Tiny House. This landmark project aims to have a educational, social and community impact.

As sustainability and downsizing becomes a reality for many people this project has already started to educate many people of the benefits of living in a Tiny House. We would like to thank all of the wonderful partners who have come on board this project. Your support and dedication is very much appreciated.
