Why we want to build a tiny house?

What is it like to live in a tiny house? How much energy does it save? Does it reduce your living quality? Does it have to be a challenge or could it be freedom? Electricity will not always come out of the outlet but our food can be grown naturally beside such a tiny house.

If you want to live in a different way does that mean you have to sacrifice enjoyment? Do we gain by deliberately shifting to a more sustainable lifestyle?

Become part of this project and you will find out the answers. On this 5 hectare landscape we will test all of these questions. We have no electricity, no heating system, and no connection to the community systems – a big chance to learn how to work with natural resources.

Our Goals

The wilderness culture farm is a demonstration of a better way to work with nature. This project gives you an opportunity to join the project. Our next step is the building of a Wilderness Culture Village. People will be able to come stay in the tiny houses and learn. This is why we want to build the first mobile tiny house in the Südburgenland.

People from all over the world can come to gain experience and learn on our farm. We will offer workshops on how to run a farm like Sepp Holzer would. It is our desire to develop the next step to the wildnerness culture way! That is absolutly unique in Austria.

Wilderness Culture

Normally you would not find the Connection between the words «wilderness» and «Culture» but that is the reason why these meaning fit together so well. Wilderness Culture is real, very closed to Nature and the human being and it is totaly practial – as it is taught by Sepp Holzer. Go out, look at nature. Look how nature works and let nature teach you! Watch it, help and support. Engage only if it is really necessary! Everything lives, everything talks, everything is real. Sepp Holzer coined «Holzer´s Permaculture. The Wilderness Culture is further development of it. Come and visite the trail of the Wilderness Culture Farm.

First need a trailer

In order to be permited on our land our homes must be mobile – therefore the first thing we need is a trailer cassis. The size will be 6x2.5 meters so that we don’t need a specialty permit to move it.

The trailer must be able to go up to 10km/h to classify as mobile and a double underbody (625mm) and protection against moisture.

Cassis 6m € 5.640,00

And then we need ...

  • Wood frame and insulation € 9.500,00
  • ROOF/Insulation/Skilled Roofer € 3.800,00
  • Windows and door € 1.700,00
  • Floor € 750,00
  • Bathroom/Shower/Toilet € 850,00
  • Appliance package € 2.280,00
  • Last but not least – Tools € 1.200,00

Häufig gestellte Fragen:

Warum liegt die Schwelle bei 6000,00, wenn der Tiny House Bau viel mehr kostet?

Wir wollen so rasch wie möglich starten, damit der Bau beginnen kann, deshalb haben wir diese Schwelle gewählt – ABER – um so mehr wir an Geld einsammeln, um so schneller können wir fertig bauen!

Kann ich euch das Geld auf andere Weise zukommen lassen?

JA – melde dich bei uns – wir lösen das Problem!

Was ist ein Tiny House?

Der Begriff «Tiny House» bedeutet «winziges Haus auf Rädern» und wurde vor ca. 10 Jahren in den USA geprägt. Inzwischen hat sich daraus ein richtiger Boom entwickelt, der auch vor Europa nicht Halt machte. Man spricht auch vom «Tiny House Movement», der «Tiny House Bewegung».

Die Bewegung in den USA wurde durch die Immobilienkrise beschleunigt, da es dadurch zu hohen Mieten und einem sinkenden Lebensstandard kam. Andererseits haben aber genau deshalb Menschen angefangen, sich wieder auf das Wesentliche im Leben zu besinnen. Minimalismus und Entschleunigung haben einen neuen Stellenwert in der heutigen Zeit eingenommen.

Was ist überhaupt Crowdfunding?

Die Idee hinter Crowdfunding ist einfach: Viele Menschen (crowd) finanzieren (fund) gemeinsam eine Idee oder ein Projekt.

Beim Crowdfunding unterstützst du das Projekt und erhältst dafür als Gegenleistung ein Dankeschön oder eine Belohnung. Bei uns zB. kannst du einen Workshop schon im Voraus buchen. Oder Pate eines Obstbaumes werden. Oder ein Kochbuch bestellen oder oder oder …

Wichtig: Crowdfunding ist KEIN INVESTING! Es gibt also keine aufwendigen Verträge.

Wie kannst du uns sonst noch unterstützen?

Neben deiner finanziellen Unterstützung, über die wir uns ganz besonders freuen, kannst du unser Projekt liken, teilen und weitererzählen!
