Architecture graduate and carpenter Lara Nobel prepares one of her Tiny Homes for display at the Home Show in Brisbane. Picture: Liam KidstonShe and her husband Andrew Carter lived in a tiny home with their daughter at Red Hill for two years before moving into their granny flat.“We love it — we wouldn’t actually choose to live in a big house,” Ms Nobel said.She said the only downfall of tiny houses was the lack of rules and regulations governing them. Tiny homes are sometimes considered caravans but Ms Nobel said local council’s struggled to deal with applications for them.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus21 hours ago“There’s still a lot of grey area in the realm of tiny homes,” she said.Managing director of Sunshine Coast-based Aussie Tiny Houses, Fabio Paulucci, believes the movement will continue to grow.“People are getting pushed out of the real estate market (so) they will start to think about this as a more affordable solution,” Mr Paulucci said.“We’ve been noticing a lot higher demand and more inquiries.”He said their models were priced from $45,000 for a small shell up to $70,000 for a larger, fully finished home.Generally, he said, most people wanted them on acreage to make the most of the outdoor space but they could be moved to caravan parks and backyards.“The first thing that we normally advise people is to approach their council,” Mr Paulucci said.Blok Modular managing director Dan Burnett said most people wanted modular homes for their luxury style and architectural design.However, he said they also suited buyers wanting to downsize and save money.He said backyard granny flats ranged between $100,000 and $200,000, depending on the number of rooms.He said the best part about modulars was that people could add extra rooms later if they needed.“You can connect these modulars later, that’s a great thing about it — people can stage their projects to meet cash flow,” Mr Burnett said. Co-founder of Brisbane-based The Tiny House Company, Lara Nobel, doesn’t just sell tiny houses, she also lives in one. Picture: Liam KidstonTHE small house movement is gaining momentum in Queensland as more buyers turn down traditional homes to explore alternative living options.Rising property prices, the need to downsize and sustainability concerns are contributing to the growing popularity of tiny homes, modular homes and container homes.Co-founder of Brisbane-based The Tiny House Company, Lara Nobel, said most people hated the thought of being tied down by a hefty mortgage while others wanted to live a more sustainable lifestyle.“The suburban four-bedroom house doesn’t suit everyone,” Ms Nobel said.“Things are different now and I don’t think housing has kept up with that.“I don’t think there’s going to be millions of tiny homes over the next few years but I think people are searching for new ways to live.”

Arsenal couriered dozens of fitness bikes out to their players last Sunday to ensure the first team squad stays fit while at home during the coronavirus crisis. Sunderland may have scored an own goal on teenage left back Williams Kokolo. The Black Cats told the 19-year-old Frenchman in January they would not be renewing his deal but did not expect such big interest in him with Bayern Munich, West Ham, St Gallen, Fulham and Napoli all keen to take him on trial. Middlesbrough have now signed Kokolo and he is already training with them but will not be able to play for Boro’s first team until the summer. The coronavirus has delivered some brilliant stories about football coming together from Chelsea, to Crystal Palace and Manchester United offering to help NHS staff and match day staff who might not get paid. But another really good story which deserves highlighting is Wigan’s Jamal Lowe offering to help Barnet’s youngsters with the club having announced this week that non-playing staff were being made redundant and academy funding would have to be stopped. Read Also:Fernandes can be a Man Utd hero like Cantona,Scholes – Ince Lowe’s wonderful gesture immediately drew praise from the non-league club’s manager Darren Currie who wrote on Twitter: “I don’t know you personally but you have my respect. Jamal Lowe has just offered financial support to our academy in the wake of recent news.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Eric Cantona could be set for a sensational return to Manchester United. United legend Cantona is one of the most influential figures in the club’s glorious history and the idea of bringing him back in an ambassadorial role is being discussed at Old Trafford. They already have greats like Bryan Robson and Denis Irwin as ambassadors as United enjoy celebrating their wonderful past and they have been involved on roadshows as well as personal appearances. Cantona, 53, remains a legendary and incredibly popular figure among the fans and would also bring star-studded appeal. United, of course, already have a club legend as their manager in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sir Alex Ferguson attends all the home games and is often seen at the training ground. Cantona is often credited as being Ferguson’s greatest ever signing as the Frenchman helped push United to their first Premier League title and spark a glorious new era for the club. His return even in an ambassadorial role would be a huge lift for the club and a major vote winner for the current club hierarchy as they stay in touch with the glorious past. Manchester United legend Ferdinand and new wife Kate Wright married last year but had to put their honeymoon on hold back then because of his TV commitments.

That was Botany Bay’s first career success, and a delighted O’Brien said: “I wasn’t sure that the pace was going to suit him. They went very slow early and I was hoping for a better gallop. “It was only really the last 100 yards that he got going. He is a huge, long striding horse and I was just afraid when they quickened they would take him off his feet which they did actually and it was only in the last 100 yards he got going. “I’ve always had great faith in this horse but he let me down quite badly on his couple of runs as a two-year-old, I was scratching my head a little bit. Anyway he has grown up and matured and obviously he is different horse this year.” Botany Bay produced a strong late surge to land the Magners Ulster Derby at Down Royal. Niall McCullagh was content to hold up the Charles O’Brien-trained 7/1 chance in mid-division, and still had plenty of ground to make up when favourite Fields Of Athenry struck the front over two furlongs out. Botany Bay picked up well after the home turn, though, and prove too strong in the final furlong, getting on top close home to score by a length. Brightly Shining took third. Press Association
