Now that more young people than ever are being excluded from the housing market by rising prices, the small house movement is gaining a lot of attention.

And Jane Saunders from Designer Eco Tiny Houses is at the forefront of this trend because he has worked on numerous small designs since the company was launched on the south coast of New South Wales.

But she said it is not just the young people who support their sustainable project, but that many older generations are on board, especially since it means less debt the closer you get to retirement.

& # 39; That's the beauty of them & # 39 ;, Saunders told FEMAIL. & # 39; The number one customers are by far single women over 55. & # 39;

Enjoy all the usual features, including a kitchen, a bathroom, a lounge / dining room, a storage staircase, a large loft and the additional single room. Perfect for permanent residence, guest house / Air B&B or weekend retreat

& # 39; Due to the circumstances of life, they have reached a point in their lives where the old style of a multi-room home is simply too expensive and no longer needed.

& # 39; Other customers use them for family members, rental accommodation for extra income, vacation and guest houses. We even built one for a doctor who needed a temporary home when she did locums [freelance work] in regional cities. & # 39;

They may be more environmentally friendly than larger houses, but that does not mean that the company pays attention to the interior of the stylist and adds extra features such as air conditioning.

& # 39; The beauty of a custom design means that you can work out what you need or don't need in your small house and work on your design from there & # 39 ;, Saunders said.

This small house from the independent series varies in price from $ 59,225 and can accommodate three people. It can be used as an art studio, hobby room or library

& # 39; It is very exciting to see the different design ideas that customers have and worth seeing the end product. Every customer can create a space that is unique because of its personality and lifestyle. & # 39;

Designer Eco Tiny Houses has 15 models to choose from and they range in size from just 3.6 meters to 7.2 meters in length.

& # 39; We start with basic prices for every small house model and work from there & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; It can be as little as $ 23,000 for a Studio Series 3600 or it can be as high as $ 145,000 for a Lifestyle Series 7200DLX that includes a side attachment that doubles.

& # 39; It all depends on how much extra & # 39; s the customer wants in his small house. The average price is around $ 75,000. & # 39;

Saunders and her team are able to put together four small houses each month and they can always have seven at the same time.

& # 39; I was a commercial builder for more than 15 years. I built houses for people who were nice people, but almost everyone overcapitalized, & she said.

& # 39; For many of them it was their second home, it was an exaggeration, which is good, but I thought I wanted to build something for someone who really needed a home.

& # 39; I have always been interested in sustainable living and natural resources. Being able to create a house for someone who is not so expensive that you are stuck with a mortgage forever, in a job forever, is very satisfying. & # 39;

All their small houses have fully functioning kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and a dining area, along with ample storage space for extra clothing and household items.

The Lifestyle series in particular is their most popular design because it manages to fit three bedrooms into a small space, with realestate.com.au the & # 39; the mansion of small houses & # 39; dubbing.

It contains a two-burner gas hob, electric oven, sink, 230-liter refrigerator, shower and vinyl plank floors throughout.

One of the most rewarding requests the company received was from the Salvation Army.

Ze They understand and experience firsthand the need for housing for the homeless and we have been able to work with them to deliver small homes for those in need. This is something we continue to work for. & # 39;

The group delivers houses throughout Australia and often tends to do the transport themselves so that they can see more of the country.

From the ground to the roof you cannot build higher than 4.3 meters and no wider than 2.5 meters
In terms of length, small houses can become 12.5 meters long, but the longer it is, the heavier it becomes

Rules for having a small house vary from state to state, but the most important thing to watch out for is its weight.

In terms of length, small houses can become 12.5 meters long, but the longer it is, the heavier it becomes.

& # 39; The reason to legally tow it on Australian roads should be kept below 4.5 tons, & # 39; told founder of Tiny Homes Australia, Darren Hughes, to carve.

& # 39; The problem is, the bigger you are, the bigger and heavier the trailer will be, and the less weight you have in the plans to build a house under 4.5 tons. & # 39;

And it is often easier to build them on wheels instead of foundations, because they can then be moved and not subject to approval by the municipality.

& # 39; The reason why people put them on trailers is that it is not a building, but on a trailer or on wheels. It is not a permanent structure. Therefore, building codes and permits do not apply, & # 39; said Darren.
