Shacky in the Press: Broadsheet

Tiny houses are cropping up on farms across regional Victoria – homes placed there by one man: Andrew Hubbard.

Hubbard is the CEO of a relatively new company called Shacky. It’s kind of like Airbnb, but while you will find a comfortable bed, you won’t find wi-fi. At Shacky, internet and phone use is actively discouraged.

While the concept of off-the-grid living has been gaining increasing traction over the past few years – including other tiny-accomodation players such as Unyoked – there is still some confusion about what it really means. “Some people think it’s just going away for the weekend,” says Hubbard. But Shacky’s tiny homes are truly off the grid; a chance for city people to find out what it’s like to disconnect and, with any luck, come out the other end more relaxed.
