5 Ways to Maximize a Small Living Space

While living in a smaller space can surely feel confining and restricting, it certainly isn’t a reason to feel discouraged. Smaller spaces can have a lot of personality and there are actually a lot of handy tricks that can help you maximize your home and make the most out of what you have available. So, instead of despairing and coming to terms with the fact that you’re facing a lifelong imprisonment, you better take matters into your own hands. If you‘re still wondering how to actually…

Hey Tiny is Beautiful Members !

Welcome to the Tiny is Beautiful - Online Tiny House Summit !

Like you,  I'm a member of this shared collaboration site and reviewing all the video submissions this week from the community of Tiny Home owners, builders, and enthusiasts ! 

One area that is coming up in many of the presentations is the concept of Building Codes, Zoning, and Ordinances...  In this forum, I would like to see if we can explore this topic in depth.

At the Tiny Home Industry Association, (THIA) which is a newly formed industry association that was created in 2016, we are now putting together an organized "standards setting process" to address the needs for uniform building Codes, Flexible Zoning and what we like to call "Adaptable Building Codes" or ordinances in municipal towns and communities.  At THIA, we are interested in working with both DIY, (Do It Yourself) Tiny Home builders as well as professional home builders and community developers to see if we can create some uniform, and sustainable standards for the Tiny Home community.

If you would like to discuss some of these "thorny" issues you may have encountered in your own local community, or have some "horror stories" of your own, I would like you to share them on this forum for discussion.  As a shared forum, I'm sure you will meet many interesting and knowledgeable people in this industry who I hope will attempt to provide some help and guidance for you.

If you would like more information about what the mission and vision of THIA is... you can check out our web-site at:  http://www.tinyhomeindustryassociation.org

Looking forward to having an engaging and lively discussion with all of you.

Mike Schmidt

Business Development Director
