TINY BLOX IS REVOLUTIONISING THE TINY HOUSE MOVEMENT WITH DIY KIT STYLE PRE-DESIGNED TINY HOME KITS SHIPPED DIRECTLY TO YOUR DOOR.

Tiny Blox has been growing steadily over the last decade with fulfilling the need for smaller, inexpensive, luxury houses. The Tiny Homes Movement is proof of that. Tiny Blox is the leader in D.I.Y flat pack tiny homes. Our focus is on affordable housing solutions with full customisation so you can build the tiny home of your dreams.

The most common reasons families choose to invest in a small kit homes include:

  • Reduction of carbon footprint
  • Decreased maintenance
  • Little or no debt
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Lower house prices
  • No council approvals
  • Cheaper than a larger home

The tiny house movement is taking off in a big way all across Australia, and one of the biggest reasons behind the success of tiny homes is their versatility. As well as being used for granny flats, student homes, and sheds, these mini dwellings can also be transformed into fantastic play areas for little ones or cubby houses for kids to enjoy with their pals.

OUR MISSION AT CAL-EARTH IS TO FURTHER THE RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND EDUCATION OF SUPERADOBE, A SAFE AND ACCESSIBLE FORM OF EARTH ARCHITECTURE THAT PROVIDES ENVIRONMENTALLY AND FINANCIALLY SUSTAINABLE LIVING SPACES.

Cal-Earth is engaging in ground-breaking research and education that fundamentally transforms housing options worldwide. We are a nonprofit organization committed to providing solutions to the human need for shelter through research, development, and education in earth architecture. We envision a world in which every person is empowered to build a safe and sustainable home with their own hands, using the earth under their feet.

The global housing shortage currently includes some 20-40 million refugees and displaced persons, and hundreds of millions more who live in substandard or slum housing. With compounding environmental challenges and the acceleration of natural and man-made disasters, this shortage will only become more severe in the coming decades.

To meet this pressing need, Cal-Earth develops and educates the public in self-help, environmentally sustainable building designs. Houses anyone can build with their own two hands, using locally available earth, sandbags and barbed wire, that meet modern-day standards for safety, beauty, energy efficiency, and comfort.

Cal-Earth’s designs have been studied by NASA, endorsed and used by the United Nations, featured in countless world media outlets, and awarded the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Our Superadobe building system (U.S. Patent #5,934,027) integrates traditional earth architecture with contemporary global safety requirements, and has passed severe earthquake code tests in California.

Based in Hesperia, California, Cal-Earth trains hundreds of people each year through on-site, international, and web-based educational programs. Our alumni have helped share earth building with communities in over 40 countries across the globe, and our workshops have been held on five continents. Youth programs at Cal-Earth foster respect for the environment and an awareness of sustainability practices.

In all that we do, we strive to honor our late founder Nader Khalili’s vision of an architecture based on the natural elements of earth, water, air, and fire, and their unity at the service of humanity and to continue his mission to provide shelter for the world’s homeless and displaced persons, empower people to participate in the creation of their own homes and communities, and help preserve the planet that we all share.

ABOUT EARTHSHIPS

Earthships are the invention of US architect Mike Reynolds.

He defines six main Earthship principles: 

1) building with natural and recyclable materials,
2) using passive solar and thermal systems for heating and cooling the home,
3) energy self sufficiency
4) water self sufficiency
5) sewage treatment self sufficiency, and
6) integrated food production systems (that use the treated effluent from the home).

Other principles include using construction methods that are easily learned and put into practice by amateur builders (e.g. tyre “pounding”).

These principles have the following goals: 

1) minimise environmental impacts throughout the whole lifecycle of the home: construction, occupancy and demolition (although hopefully demolition is hundreds of years away!)
2) become self sufficient in energy, water and to some extent, food.
3) drive sustainable behaviour change – Earthship occupants become more aware of their energy use, water use and general consumption, for example, being more careful about what sort of personal hygiene products they pour down their drains.
4) empower people to “be the change they want to see in the world”.
5) enable people to reduce the financial burden of relentless energy and water utility bills.

The ultimate goal is to provide housing that enables the occupants to realise a positive change in their life. Mike says:

“This concept of living, (independent voyage vs. dependent trap), could change the nature of the human mind itself. It could provide a basis and a direction for conscious evolution on Earth”

In other words, what might we and our society look like if our housing provided energy and water, essentially for free, so that we didn’t need to rape and pillage the planet in a frantic effort to pay the electricity and water bills? Surely we’d have more time to care for ourselves, for others, and for our planet.

The findings of my PhD study found that being self sufficient is the most important factor when it comes to reducing your environmental impact. I think it is also the most important factor in terms of minimising your financial liabilities – hip pocket impact. For the foreseeable future energy and water prices will be going up up up, whereas solar panels, batteries, and rain water tanks are likely to get cheaper as technology improves and demand increases. I also found that people who live in Earthships find them very comfortable, despite being off-grid. They love their Earthships! Through monitoring the thermal performance (indoor air temperature and humidity) of various Earthships in the USA and Australia I have concluded that Earthships are suitable for most climates in Australia (tropical climates require a different Earthship design) requiring little to no energy for heating and cooling. No air-con needed!

Having lived in my own almost-earthship since 2003, a strawbale home that is self sufficient in electricity and water (although still grid connected) and which requires very little fuel for heating/cooling, I know what a relief it is to not have enormous electricity and water bills and to know that the environmental impact of my family’s home is much less than it otherwise would be. Since completing Earthship Ironbank in 2016 hundreds of people have visited for tours and many have stayed for a night or two. Judging by the comments in the guest book, this Earthship has been universally enjoyed for its beauty, comfort and tranquility: just another small piece of evidence that Earthships are a good idea.
