    Should be fun! I’m doing a 90 min demo to open up Saturday, with my brother Dustin, on salvage construction, and how to save a ton of money while building your own home. We’ll have props galore to share, and might even bring up a tiny shelter/ structure to showcase…..

    Yes! Can’t wait for the Fair! I’ll be there too, doing a workshop about innovative photovoltaic (solar) electricity ESPECIALLY designed for tiny houses/homes on wheels. I love Yestermorrow – it’s worth it just to see all the cool tiny cabins on campus. Oh, and I’ll have the COMET too for tours/info sessions. Don’t miss this tiny house weekend!

      Hello Mariah,

      Wish I could meet you but I’m in Spain Will you write anything? I can’t locate suppliers of the sort of systems I imaine you will be discussing. So much sun here in Spain. But solar so expensive.
      Want small scale systems for caravans and small homes. Thank you and much luck. Christine Ferguson

    So want to attend, since I live next door, but I am putting all extra cash this year into my land purchase so I can pay it off sooner than later. I am a good 4-5 years from beginning construction anyway. I am sure there will be more opportunities like this in the future.

    NOOOO! Why does this have to be the same weekend of my son’s high school graduation?! I really want to attend to see Jay speak – but Saturday is absolutely booked. :(

    I just wanted to say that I am so proud of all of you who are part of making the tiny house movement grow and flourish whether builders, designers or consumers. I love watching all of the new ideas, new products and money saving tips. I hope this movement will become an important part of our everyday society. You are a unique and wonderful group of people whom I admire and appreciate immensely.
    Carry on! Carry on!
