Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve got questions our frequently asked questions area is a good point of reference.

Our friendly team at MicroHomes | Group are always on hand to discuss with you any aspect of your project. Don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way.

What can a MicroHome be used for?

The options are endless. Each MicroHome is a fully functioning home with every amenity you would expect so it can be used as a granny flat, teenage retreat, holiday home or an AirBNB investment.

Are you the same as a “tiny house”?

Not really. Both have wheels. At MicroHomes, we’ve taken on the huge task of engineering our own chassis, which has allowed us to build to the maximum limits of an oversized load vehicle. This means we offer a massive 3.2m wide room, just like a normal bedroom. It also means you can close the door – just like a normal bedroom, so even though you might be living small you don’t need to give up your privacy. There’s a range of other benefits this offers, which we’re happy to talk to you about. Head over to the contact page to book a time to visit our showroom.

What is a MicroHome?

A MicroHome is a dwelling on wheels. 

Each MicroHome comes equipped with full amenities. They’re entirely self contained and can be used in a variety of different ways. It may be your home away from home, your granny flat, airbnb, teenage retreat, backyard office, art or yoga studio …  the options are limited only by your imagination. 

We’re not a caravan or a ‘tiny house’. We’ve designed MicroHomes to have longevity, as well as be safer, bushfire rated and much more spacious.
