Sunday I spent four hours at Jenine Alexander’s and Amy Huto’s Forge Ahead open house here in Healdsburg, California. I had a lot of fun getting to know a bunch of local tiny house enthusiasts that I had not met before.
I enjoyed visiting with Louise who was not a local and had come all the way from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Mark from an eco-village lives in a park model home, a friend of Jenine’s and her daughter live in a converted 20 foot storage container that Jenine helped her convert. Amanda, just bought a teardrop trailer and is planning to spend six months crossing the country starting in September. Just to name a few.
It was really neat to see the contrast of designs, between the modern lines and open concept and the 70′s hippie/cabin style of Jenine’s home. I loved the light and openness of the modern home but found that we tended to stay longer and socialize in Jenine’s more rustic house. Maybe because hers is lived in and felt more like home.
