The 2020 Tiny House Course & Auction

The Bower’s tiny house was built by 15 students from Australia’s only hands-on Tiny House building course with Reclaimed Materials. The intensive hands-on tiny house building course used recycled and reclaimed materials and covered not just theory and design principles, but also the necessary practical skills one needs to build their very own tiny house. The course was developed and run in partnership with James The Upcyclist.

The Bower is a not-for-profit, championing the cause of using reclaimed building material and this course is the showcase of the experience, skills and technicalities we’ve acquired over the past 15 years, of not only pushing an important environmental cause forward but also the building of capacity and resilience of our staff, supporters and volunteers.
