What We Do

The Future Housing Taskforce was set up to counter the rise of unaffordable housing in Australia.  

Are we in serious trouble?  Yes. 

If you check with the annual Demographia Housing Affordability Study you will find that we are still blind to our fate of what our next generation of children will face. To overcome external authority input, we build demonstration homes of the future in sheds to demonstrate what could be possible and from these demonstrations change occurs sometimes rapidly – sometimes not at all.

The Future Housing Taskforce website will provide you with all of our key learnings and how they translate to either affordable home ownership or affordable Investment opportunities. You will have the option to send us an email with your own thoughts and we will respond, however the blog sites will remain on social media. Any of your feedback that makes it to change will be honoured as to its author.
