With the 1000th post of Relaxshacks.com on the horizon, and our third hands-on, tiny house building workshop coming up (Nov 2-4 right outside Boston, MA), I thought a giveaway to the Tiny House Blog readers might be in order, as a way to thank all of you, and Kent, for all of the support over the years.
Up on the block we have….
- My “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks” tiny house design/concept book
- “No Impact Man” the DVD documentary from Colin Beavan
- “Make Your Place: Affordable, Sustainable, Nesting, Skills” by Raleigh Briggs
- “Your Money or Your Life“- by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin
- A tiny house print from JamaicaCottageShop.com
- A “Tiny: The Movie” tiny house print I created/sketched
- A compilation CD with my band (for use as a frisbee or drink coaster)
- my band “DEFDEALER” (which may scare some of you) is doing a “Itunes for The Homeless” fundraiser
- using the money from each and every download to raise money to build a tiny dwelling with a certain homeless organization. $0.99 at a time, we hope to raised a little over $400 to make this possible.
Anyway, to win, just let us know WHY YOU FEEL TINY HOUSE LIVING IS ADVANTAGEOUS- aside from the normal, more cliche, reasons…..I will pick a winner, and I’ll mail you all the prize loot. Feel free to get creative or comical too. Deadline is one week from the posting date of this entry. Enter your submissions in the comment thread below.
As for the upcoming workshop….we’ve added even MORE guest speakers and demonstrators! Check out the list, its pretty insane! Its filling up pretty fast too, so if interested, don’t lag too long. And YES, we’ll all be building a tiny guest house together, camping, seeing/touring other tiny dwellings (Jay Shafer’s VERY FIRST TUMBLEWEED TINY HOUSE), discussing topics at night by a bon fire, a pizza party, and more. I can’t wait!
