The Online Community for Tiny Living and the Tiny House Summit
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.
