Buckminster Fuller once said, "If you want to change how somone thinks, give up; you can not change how people think. Give them a tool, the use of which will cause them to think differently." The tiny house is just such a tool.

I’m super excited to share BIG news of a new Tiny House Collaborative that I'm part of. Our goal- to create a functional set of
tiny house plans, accompanied by a video tutorial walking people through
each stage of tiny house construction. If realized, this project could
open up possibilities for people around the country and world to create
their own tiny homes. The work will also be made available to students
in schools who want to build a tiny house. The school program
will be tailored so that, in states where its possible, students can
even get Science and Math credit. There currently is a tiny house pilot
project with schools in Washington state.
Its been three years since i finished my house- Gold Thread Tiny house.
Its just over 100SF, is built on wheels and runs on electricity
generated by two solar panels. Its been, and continues to be a wonderful
living experience for me. I love the challenge of making the most out
of a tiny space, making it beautiful and creating a sense of efficiency
and simplicity that our society seldom offers.
I am also
continually approached by folks, ranging from high school students to
retired school teachers, wanting to build a tiny house their own. I have
really lacked concrete tools to be able to support people as much as I
would like to. Through this project, that all might change.…
Please take a moment and check out our new website and welcome video. If
you feel moved to support the work, there will be a link available at
the end of the video.
