What you'll do

If you are thinking of living off the grid or in a tiny house, this tour will be filled with information to get you started! On your two-hour tour Cameron will explain everything from buying land to building a tiny house. This will include a tour of our main tiny house and the systems that support it such as rain water harvesting, PV use, composting and firewood processing. The tour will also include Rachael's tiny art studio, Cameron’s self-made solar electric vehicle and plenty of time to ask questions over local beverages and a cheese tray on our deck which overlooks the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
