Tiny Bathroom Decorating Tips

Living in a tiny house has numerous perks, including lower construction costs, lower energy bills, easier maintenance, cheaper decorating, and, of course, minimal impact on the environment. However, while it is quite easy to get accustomed to the small square footage in almost every room, we usually discover that we could always benefit from extra space in the kitchen and the bathroom. If you are struggling with decorating a cramped bathroom, we’ll help you…

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…

I am very confused about how to navigate. And I forgot to write down the dates so I probably missed everything.  So much protesting going on. I thought I had more time to come back to this. oh well.

I am trying to get a group of people to join with me to form an organization that would then buy land. I don't know anything about 501 c 3 or how to pick good land.

I learned that Earth Haven connected with the Nature Conservancy )or maybe they suggested that ) So I was going to ask them if we did conservation work would we be allowed to live on land that was set aside for animals and environment protection.  I never wrote the letter because I don't sound like an adult in writing.

The biggest problemis too many people are all talk and no action. And the ones who ARE ready. are willing to go the route alone. Get their one house and live on their one friends back yard. Not a solution for building a community.

In the past years there was a nature conservatory who wanted (I've forgotten now) I think wanted people to help with the upkeep I think that was in Chapel Hill NC  and now there is a woman willing to GIVE her 12.8 acre blueberry farm to anyone who writes a convincing essay, has a farming resume, is a couple, and pays $300 entry fee.  She says its too small to have a tiny house community. Don't know how tha'ts true, but she doesn't want a group to enter contest  

She mentioned Conservation Easement which i looked up and its about taxes.

I guess I'll just see what videos I can see.

Hi Steve, Glad I signed up for the summit. I see your suggestion to consider being a presenter. I am offering myself to you. Please tell me in what area you might need more input. A bit about me: I currently live full time in my DIY 6x10 Cottage Camper at Gracious RV & Tiny House Park on Lake Okeechobee in FL. I am the Tiny House Coordinator here. There is one other full size THOW here currently and I am in the process of building another one for myself = on a 7 ton 20ft trailer. I have 19 YouTube videos documenting my build of the 6x10 "Cottage Camper" and I am blogging my 20ft build on facebook.com/TakeMeHomeTinyHouse  I also built a 12x12 cabin in the mountains outside of Boone, NC and I recently attended the 2016 Florida Tiny House Festival where I was on a Q&A panel for "Living Tiny" and where Deek Diedricksen video interviewed me in my Cottage Camper for his YT channel. I have lots of ideas & opinions to go with them! LOL. Let me know how I can help.
