With wildfires becoming an every more frequent occurrence, it’s important for us to start thinking about fire resistance when designing our homes.

In this video, we visit the tiny house of an Australian builder, Tom and his tiny house on wheels which has been designed to be resistant to forest fires.

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. If you’re considering building a tiny home (or any home for that matter) in an area at risk of wildfires, there are lots of great tips for you to consider in this video.
