LITTLE SOJOURNER Starting price $75,000
To ‘sojourn’ means to rest, abide, dwell or stay. It’s about having a break from the journey, to be refreshed. There is an element of temporariness to it which we feel is captured by the relocatable nature of our homes. You can stop awhile, & move on in your own time, taking your resting place with you.

We build 5 key components into every Tiny House including the ‘Little Sojourner’
Highest Quality Materials & Workmanship meaning our houses will age well & last for generations
A sense of Beauty & Inspiration in the aesthetics & space created
Clever Design & high level Functionality so that the small space is no hindrance to daily living
Maximum Comfort including space for a real couch & all the mod cons and luxuries you’d like to include in a traditional home
Full Off-Grid Capability for those seeking to reduce their footprint & make their Tiny House fully self-sufficient & sustainable
STUDENT - A student usually has less to spend but is after plenty of independence. The little Sojourner offers both a more cost effective and more easily transportable living space.
* Rated at 3.5 tonne it can be towed by many 4WD vehicles.
FULL TIME HOME - Set up for a high standard of living with all the mod cons, you could live comfortably in the Sojourner full time with the flexibility of relocation when needed. Without the 30 year mortgage.
FAMILY OR GUEST ACCOMMODATION - You may not need the slide-out or size of the original Sojourner. For a simpler, more cost effective ‘granny flat’ type accommodation space, the ‘Little Sojourner’ has everything you need and might do the trick.
* If parked behind an existing dwelling, a member of the household is able to live in it full time with no council approval required. See FAQs for more on council related questions.
OFFICE SPACE OR STUDIO - You can simplify the Little Sojourner further (& lower the cost) if you want to use it in an Office or Studio capacity. You may not want or need the full kitchen. Internals can be simplified or removed to create space for work and creativity.
MOBILE HOME - Because this model is smaller, it suits more frequent relocation giving you the option to travel around Australia if you wanted to.
