With wildfires becoming an every more frequent occurrence, it’s important for us to start thinking about fire resistance when designing our homes. The tiny house movement has been a great opportunity for innovation and experimentation.
Tom’s tiny house is located in Kinglake, just outside of Melbourne, Australia. In 2009, Kinglake was engulfed by some of the worst forest fires in Australian history, claiming the lives of 180 people and a tremendous amount of damage to property. The land where his tiny house is parked is still scared from the flames of those tragic fires.
Inspired to find better solutions for building, Tom has explored various ways of making his incredible off the grid, solar passive tiny house resistant to fires. This includes design elements as well as clever material choices.
