Elle-vating the Tiny House Movement

Elle-vating the Tiny House Movement

February 18, 2020

Elle began her Tiny journey approximately six years ago when shipping container homes piqued her interest. Elle felt there was something more suitable to her needs out there so with further research she found Tiny Houses and fell in love. Since then Elle has been instrumental in numerous Tiny House initiatives and ventures to progress and raise awareness of the Tiny House movement within Australia and to provide tools to help inform and educate those wanting to go Tiny. Most notably right now is the St Kilda Tiny Home and Community Garden project which is ground breaking, history making and excitement creating indeed. We will certainly have Elle back for further interviews as just one interview is not enough to cover all the wonderful things Elle is involved with.

Elle would love to connect with anyone who shares her passion for Tiny Living and you can do so via the links below. Want to meet her in person? Pop along to the Australian Tiny Homes Carnival on 7th and 8th March 2020 in St Ives, NSW and you can do just that! Click the Carnival link below to purchase your tickets.

This is an interview not to miss! Enjoy.

This week I had the privilege to meet the first food truck owner and operator in Brisbane, Harry from The Bun Mobile. Harry’s food truck journey began in 2012 after a stellar career as an Executive Chef. Harry has been an instrumental influence on food culture in Brisbane over many years, including the iconic Harry’s Diner, and The Bun Mobile has proven no different. This “Tiny” business has thousands of loyal customers (Bunstars as Harry calls them) and has been voted Brisbane best food truck four years in a row. Let’s get things cooking, take it away Harry!
