Tiny Houses Buy Lease or Build
May 1, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pmDonation
The Tiny House movement is sweeping the country and the world. It is challenging our notion of what ingredients make up a happy life. Compared to conventional homes, tiny houses dramatically shrink our carbon footprint, are significantly more economical to own and operate, and to a subset of open-minded can be far more accessible. In a word, tiny houses are a quantum leap more sustainable than conventioinal houses. DIYers as well as entreprenurial builders and even retailers like Amazon are forging ahead to build a serious industry.
In this session, You will get to see an occupied Box Truck tiny house and hear from its enterprising owner about the reality of living tiny on a day-to-day basis, as well as how he built it with his scarce set of tools and skill, but his abundant passion. We also review the different types of Tiny Houses surfacing in our region, the economics of tiny houses, and barriers that inhibit its proliferation.
Join this exciting discussion and network with others of similar mind.
