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.
 
With tiny house dreams. Aldo

  1. This is wonderful news! Good luck on the kickstarter with this great project :). I came across this blog about your tiny house after a mention on another website. It hadn't been updated for a while last time I checked and I was curious if you were still enjoying tiny house life. Seems that you are! I hope to build a tiny house one day too so I enjoyed the photos & posts about your building and living process.
