Your Name and Title: Carmen Shenk, writer, blogger, tiny house dweller.

Co-Presenter Name(s): Xaver Wilhelmy, certified pipe organ builder (www.Geshenke.com), car guy, tiny house dweller.

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Virginia, USA.

Language in Which You Will Present: I speak American, he speaks English, smile.

Target Audience(s): People who would like to go tiny for financial reasons but are really wondering if they can manage to live in such a small space (or will it drive us batty).

Short Session Description (one line): Life Lessons I learned from living in 125 square feet.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session:

I guess you could say this is Tiny House Living 101, and has nothing to do with building a house, crafting a good floor plan, or using a composting toilet. This presentation is about how it feels to live in a small intimate space and how it has changed us. I'll share the things we have learned about living tiny (so far) and talk a bit about how to embrace not just tiny spaces, but the simplicity required to live comfortably in small spaces. We are hard core foodies, and we used to own a 3,000 square foot restaurant. However, now our entire home is 125 square feet. This house has taught me to cook in a completely different way, not really a new way... but much more old school. I took a step back in time before all the kitchen gadgets, before the immersion blender, the Vitamix, and the Breville Sous Chef. None of that gear makes the food better, none of it. And that's just one example of how we've changed because of our home.  We've embraced a simpler way of living together in our tiny house that has brought us much joy. We look forward to sharing our story with you.

Terrific!

I'm busy working on my memoir about our experiences living tiny.  If my proposal is approved then I need to get crackin on that.  Let me know if I've been approved to proceed and the deadline. 

Thanks so much,

Carmen

Carmen, we did approve you and sent an email to your @gmail.com address.  Did you not get it?

I saw "How to watch the tiny house summit" but that seemed like an email to everyone.  I must have missed it.  CarmenShenk@gmail.com? 

Bingo, here it is.  Thanks!
