Workshop: Tiny Houses 101

Much of the success of the design, build and love that I have for my tiny house is due in part to the time I invested in research. Before even beginning my design phase I spent a year and a half, almost two years, researching all there was to know about tiny houses and that effort paid off exponentially in the quality of my build and in ensuring my tiny home works for and meets all my needs.

There’s a lot of information out there about tiny houses, as well as varied opinions, which means researching can become very overwhelming. Trust me, I’ve been there and can relate. With that in mind and remembering my experiences, I’ve partnered with some of the other experts in the movement to design a workshop that provides everything you’ll need to plan, design and build your own tiny home, as well as to prepare you for your tiny house journey.

Join us to learn basic building practices for tiny houses, zoning and building code, design tips and tricks, sourcing of materials, small living lifestyle and placement of tiny houses in workshops and webinars led by yours truly and Lee Pera (founder of Kotierra and former Boneyard Studios tiny house community).

Art, Culture, Creativity & Tiny Houses

Created by Jewel Pearson and Dominique Moody, of Tiny House Trailblazers, along with DC tiny house advocate Lee Pera, “Art, Culture, Creativity and Tiny Houses” is a series of talks created to help bring diverse voices, diversity awareness and representation to the larger community. Past events have been held in Washington, DC and New Orleans, LA with local area artists joining the event and discussion to share their experiences and art as they discuss how they have incorporated tiny houses into their lives and explore issues around housing, gentrification, migration, culture and art.

For more information or to bring the event to your area check out our campaign, “Elevating Diverse Voices in the Tiny House Movement” and help us build a more inclusive and representative movement and bring diverse voices and diversity awareness to the larger community.
