Most Common Electrical Problems in Tiny Homes

Tiny homes are one of the biggest crazes in the last couple of years. These ingenious living spaces may not have that much room, but their designs and layouts are made so that everything fits in perfectly without having to sacrifice many things. Sure, you won’t have a giant bathtub, but that is not their intended purpose.

While we can talk about different tiny home designs for hours, that is not the topic of…

Great Design Ideas for Tiny Yards

Buying a home is very exciting yet it requires some compromises. Normally, your budget will determine the size and the type of home you’ll be able to afford. This might mean that you will have to choose a home with only one garage, or a home with a small backyard instead of a large one.

However, keep in mind that bigger isn't always better. Compared to spacious outdoor places, small yards can mean less cleaning but…

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…

Tiny House Summit Updates: New Dates, New Keynotes, New Sessions, and a New Webinar!

First things first: we have new dates for the live event, February 20 - 24. Getting all the technical details worked out for the Summit took longer than we expected, and we got to the first of the January and there was general agreement to move to later dates. We knew it would be really hard to change the dates if we waited any longer, so we emailed our existing speakers, got approval, and made the change. We are all breathing a little easier now!

 

Second, we have an awesome (and growing) lineup of featured speakers: Abel Zimmerman Zyl, Macy Miller, Andrew Bennett, Andrew Odom, Becky Elder, Brad Kittel, Chris Galusha, Chrissy Bellmyer, Damon DesChamp, Darin Zaruba, Darren Hughes, David & Jeanie Stiles, Felice Cohen, Hari Berzins, Jake & Kiva, Jay Shafer, Jewel Pearson, John & Finn Kernohan, Kelly Hart, Keri Fivecoat-Campbell, Pat Dunham, Saul Rip Hansen, Thom Stanton, Tracey Powell, Valerie Cook & Tim Boffe, Vera Struck, and Zack Giffin. Stay posted for more! I just recorded the first keynote interview with Macy Miller--she was awesome, and I can’t wait to do the rest of these and for you to see them!

 

Third, we have some great community presentation proposals that have been submitted! In addition to our keynote speakers, anyone who wants to can submit to present a live session during the Summit on a tiny/small-related topic. So far we have “Powering Your Tiny House With SOLAR!” by Michael Chance, “Airbnbing Your Tiny House” by Sarah Murphy, “How to Downsize and De-Clutter Before You Go Tiny” by Jenn Baxter, and “Urban Voluntary Simplicity: How to Downsize Your Living Space Without Leaving the City” by Terry K. Kudos to each of them! And you can add your name to this list, just visit the Summit community network at TinyIsBeautiful.com and look for the directions to submit a session proposal (http://tinyisbeautiful.com/page/submit-to-present).

 

Fourth, we have a new webinar up! Our first webinar, “Webinar - Drilling Down on Tiny House as DIY (Do It Yourself),” with Jake & Kiva, Domenic Mangano, and Tracey Powell is on TinyIsBeautiful.com at http://tinyisbeautiful.com/page/diy-webinar. This week we just recorded a new webinar with Rubi Beg, called “Rubi Builds a Tiny House on Wheels as Senior Project.” Rubi gave a version of this presentation to our Asheville Tiny House meetup group some weeks ago, and we begged her to let us record it. You’re going to love her practical, thoughtful, and detailed description of building her own tiny house.

 

Finally, if you’d like to help us promote the Summit, we do have a formal affiliate program. Contract sera@learningrevolution.com.

 

See you online!
