Live the way you want to live.
Big World Homes have built a prototype for a transitional housing product for Big World Communities Inc. that offers a solution to people currently unable to get into home ownership.
A Big World Home is a modular, mobile, off-grid housing system made from structural-thermal-waterproof integrated panels.
It offers a new kind of asset rung for those who are finding it difficult to enter the market.
It’s ordered online, arrives flat-packed and can be built by two people over a few days using simple tools, making incredible savings on labour.
“It will basically free people to live how they want to live, rather than being chained to assets.”
Australia’s five major metropolitan cities have been classified as ‘severely unaffordable’ for the past 11 years.
The generational gap is widening, wages are declining, relative prices increasing, and most mortgages continue to go to existing home owners.
Take a look into the assembly of a Big World Home.
Our team are assembling a Big World Home down at the warehouse in Alexandria.
Ingeniously, all the wall and roof modules are installed from the inside. You never need to get on the roof to install anything. Here you can see the crew putting half the walls and roof structure up in half an hour.
Our crowd-funding backer, Mickey Kovari, takes us on a tour through a Big World Home.
The re-thinking of ‘space’ and ‘wealth’ is to housing what the sharing economy was to capitalism – Big World Homes has an expansive effect, creating a new life and new communities in the city.
When it comes to housing, it’s time to think big, and the answer isn’t small.
It’s all about the collective.
