    Mini houses and transportable "pods" are common....even using compost toilets and recycling grey water using external processing.
    This seems like an upmarket version of a common theme and I suspect the grey water goes to a holding tank and pump out?
    Very, very expensive though......
    You can make them out of timber frames and plywood with insulation....like a fancy caravan?

    Not sure if local council would allow it as I think there is a BCA minimum living space requirement - not sure - but thinking at least 20sqm.....
    Otherwise we would all be living in small boxes or caravans...maybe not a bad idea!.....:)

    Agree with @robboat

    They're nice, but you could buy 2 nice caravans for that kind of $. With the added benefit of being able to actually swing a cat in it AND have some storage. Who knows you may even have a friend or relative who will let you stay in their yard for a year or 2 on the cheap so you can save for more IP's. :p

    I'd love to get one. Take it up to the 100 acres in the country

    Go to the bottom of the article and look at the Modular granny flat. Now that's value for 120k. Perceived Value differs between each individual of course.
