Penelope Bergen has big love for her tiny house in Alice Springs, Australia but it’s time for her to pass it on.
Ms. Bergen built her little home, measuring just 6m by 2.5m, four years ago with the help of a builder and “kind and generous” friends.
But a move to Sydney to study means the PhD candidate is selling her pint-size property for $75,000.
“It’s the width and length of a standard caravan but it’s a house with a pitch roof and a bed in the loft,” she said.
“It looks like a little country church on wheels.”
The former journalist came across the idea of tiny living years ago when the movement was growing in America.
After living in Alice Springs for five years Ms. Bergen had had it with landlords but couldn’t afford a mortgage so she thought, why not a tiny house for her and her dog Corny?
“I designed it around the needs of a single person and used the spaces the best I could to fill every nook and cranny,” she said.
