Freedom Yurt Cabins at Tiny House Jamboree

While at the Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, Colorado I had the opportunity to see first hand the Freedom Yurt Cabins that I covered here on the Tiny House Blog a couple of months ago. You can read the post here.

It was fun to see first hand the quality and build of this unique hard wall yurt. I also had the chance to get to know the father and son team behind this new tiny house option.  Richard Barry is the President and CEO of the company and his son Josh is Co-General Manager and Sales Manager.

Freedom Yurt Cabins

I’m a big fan of yurts and I think it comes from growing up in Arizona where I was around the Navajo hogan and learned to appreciate the circle as a living space.

I recently discovered a new yurt company based in Aurora, Colorado called Freedom Yurt Cabins. I’ve been in communication with the owner Richard Barry to learn more about them. I wanted to see one in person and just learned that they will have one at the Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado which I will be attending in August. Please come if you can this is going to be an exciting tiny house event. Continue reading

Movie presentation of Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary

In Portland, Oregon, we meet four characters, each of whom are at various stages of building and living in their own tiny homes. Ben is a 20 something single guy with an inheritance to spend and a design he drew, but an ambitious timeline and no building experience. Nikki and Mitchell are a young couple who, along with their two dogs, dream of bucking the stereotypical life story of buying a big house but then spending the rest of their lives trying to pay it off. Karen, 50, has loved living in her tiny house for two years yet still struggles with the lack of permanency that comes with living in a house on wheels. Ultimately this story proves that it’s not what’s inside the walls of a tiny house that counts, but rather it is the strong community of like minded people who support each other as they dare to be different.
