Launched at the Tiny Home Carnival in Sydney in March 2020, the Megalong range is the culmination of years of research and design. We deliver to the Blue Mountains and beyond.
The Megalong range of tiny homes are installed as 'Caravans' under NSW exempt development legislation that allows people to have a caravan on their property without council approval. These can be used for a Home Office or as Accomodation. If you don't need a habitable space, our Garden Sheds might meet your needs.

Urban Caves reads this as:
Definition of a caravan (from within the above legislation document):
caravan means a moveable dwelling that is designed so as to be capable of being registered (within the meaning of the Road Transport Act 2013) as a trailer, but does not include a camper trailer.
Definition of household (Australian Census):
An occupied caravan on a residential allotment is usually treated as an occupied private dwelling. The exception to this is where there are one or more other structures on the allotment and the occupants of the caravan are residents of the main dwelling. In this case the occupants are all classed as one household and the caravan is counted as an additional room of the main dwelling.
You don't need to feel overwhelmed about preparing your site for a Tiny Home. We're here to help.
Usually, site preparation can be carried out as exempt development without the need for council approval. For example, in NSW you can build a 600mm high retaining wall as exempt development.
The key things to consider before you order your tiny home:
Blue Mountains Residents
If you live within 1 hour of Katoomba we offer free site inspections and free site preparation quotes.
Other NSW Residents
With your help, we can provide you with a free site inspection without coming to your site. If you can provide us with images and video footage of where you're thinking of having a tiny home delivered, we can make an assessment from that media as well as other information we can gather such as Google Maps satelite images, Google Street View images, interactive property mapping tools, and Dial Before You Dig utility plans.
We see Site Preparation support as one of the key areas to our future success so we'll be revising and improving this information as and when we can. Please feel free to get in touch and let us know how we can help you better.
