It’s fair to say that the tiny cabin lifestyle has gone from being the accommodation type of the future to what’s in now, with new ones popping up around the State regularly in recent years.
As that looks set to continue, we turn our attention towards their place in the environment, with sustainability and minimal impact built into their very ethos.
And today we’re excited to tell you about some new off-grid little houses that take this concept to the next level, delivering Western Australia’s first fully regenerative tourism project.
Little House Republic is so far a couple of tiny houses deeply embedded into secluded parcels of land in Scott River, southeast of Hamelin Bay.
Teaming up with landowners the Dunnet Family, the project is in partnership with Carbon Positive Australia and Sustainable Travel International, and actively works to reduce energy use, minimise waste, nurture the land, encourage local producers and craftspeople and work collaboratively with local communities.
The result is total immersion in the stunning surrounds of the area, while enjoying enough creature comforts to make for more meaningful and memorable experiences.
And when we say immersion, we’re not talking about a shipping container on an empty paddock, rather being positioned deep within natural surrounds (see if you can spot the cabin!):
When it comes to the houses themselves (there are two to choose from), it’s a top-down approach when it comes to sustainability – from the regeneratively grazed cattle roaming the land, to recycled mattresses made from plastic bottles and eco-friendly cleaning and washing products across the board.
If you’re someone chasing a proper disconnect from the daily grind while getting back to nature and being good to it at the same time, Little House Republic will be just the ticket.
