Why Do We Do It?

People are always asking me, “But why do you go to all these tiny house festivals?” For one thing you can actually get inside lots of tiny houses to see if it’s really for you. Plus, there’s a wealth of information to learn at the festivals, the people are so cool, and, well, here are some pictures to give you an idea of how much fun it all really is!

You meet fun people…

Like Grace, Corbett, and little Nanette Lunsford, who received the award for Best Tiny House at the 2017 Georgia Tiny House Festival, presented by John Kernohan. If you want TONS of information on building healthier and more efficient homes, check out their Youtube channel or visit their Building Performance Workshop website.

Also people like Shorty Robbins…

who works incredibly hard as one of the organizers of the United Tiny House Festivals. She has an authentic Civil War era tiny house that you will love, especially the piano bed. No, I’m NOT kidding! Check it out here and on Facebook at Shorty’s Tiny House- the build and beyond.

Then there’s Teeny, the Tiny House Mascot …

oh yes, and Dustin Diedricksen, Andrew Odom, of Tiny r(E)volution, and Deek Diedricksen, of Relaxshacks. These 3 guys are not only funny but they are full of practical knowledge and tips about building tiny houses. If you want to know about tools, these are the guys!!!
