Electricity Update: we are working towards reconnecting the power at Sibley Street. The connection from the pole to the house was removed after a tree fell down and brought down the lines and then the house was moved anyway, which involved removing all exterior protrusions including the original meter box. We need about $5000 to reconnect and rewire the house. We have about $4000 so far. To donate see our donations page. We will be reconnecting with Enova Energy once we have the wiring sorted. NNIC is a proud supporter and shareholder of Enova Energy. Make the switch today and keep your money in the Northern Rivers region.

This WAS 7 Sibley Street, Nimbin, New South Wales, Australia.
As you can see from this picture, the site is located in the middle of the village next to the Nimbin Skate Park and across the road from the Community Centre. Its purpose is to house a bunch of community projects and activities connected to affordable housing and sustainable living.
The BIG PLAN is to construct a new building on the site which demonstrates and resources affordable and sustainable building, housing and living in general. And which supports employment and economic opportunities for people in need.
We bought it in 2012 and paid off the loan in 2015.
In 2016 we installed a shipping container on site so we can begin to salvage and collect building materials.
As of March 2018, we received our Development Application approval to move the house, our Construction Certificate and we have now finished building works. A lot of time, professional expertise & volunteer efforts made this happen (watch here): 7 Sibley St – Moving the House
