Convertible Pods (Tiny Homes) that are Fire and Storm Resistant

By | News

Tiny homes are now being used as a home to live in, office space, extra accommodation for guests, holiday homes, airbnbs and more. If you are thinking about buying a tiny home, Designology’s fire and storm-resistant Convertible Pod is an affordable and sustainable option.

These Convertible Pods (tiny homes) come with awnings that are very secure when closed. This is a great advantage if the home is not always occupied or your security is key.

Designology’s unique tiny home design is very durable and responds to the changing climate. It does not require load-bearing walls at all. This actually creates more space and makes the floor plan flexible to your needs.

Contact us to find out more about how we can get you into a tiny home.

Two Convertible Homes open for Sustainable House Day

By | News

On Sunday 15 September 2019, open the door to sustainable living and visit two of Designology’s Convertible Homes, on show as part of a day celebrating Australia’s most environmentally progressive homes.

Our convertible home, Cocoon House, in Newbury (which can also be rented out via airbnb ) will be open from 10am to 4pm. The Cocoon House convertible home is two storeys, with four to five bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one powder-room and large balconies. Cocoon House is off-grid. Awnings are installed on windows for weather protection and security. Designology can build Convertible Homes to BAL40.

Our convertible home at Scarsdale will also be open again this year from 10am to 4pm. The unique design of the convertible house with its barrel vault ceiling gives a small space a big feel. The aim was to create a home that had minimal impact on the environment through the use of good orientation for passive solar gain and use of the natural resources available on site – rainfall and solar.

Register with the Sustainable House Day website to get all the details on where to visit our Convertible Homes.
