Ryan Mitchell over at The Tiny Life blog says: “It is official! The Tiny House Conference is happening.” The conference will be in Charlotte NC, April 16th from 10am to 7pm. The conference is completely free for all that wish to attend. Just a little over two weeks from now so be sure and put it into your schedule if you live near this area of the country. Ryan decided to combine forces with Charlotte’s Center for Sustainability, which is a larger event and therefore will allow more activities to do.
They have agreed to combine efforts, their Green Eco-friendly festival, with Ryan’s tiny house education sessions. So the tiny house group is officially under the umbrella of the Charlotte Clean and Green Festival, which boasts a huge array of things to do. Ryan has also arranged to have tours of a completely off the grid container home. During the day Ryan will be teaching classes on tiny houses, running a booth on urban chickens, and running tours of the container home.
You can do all these things that Ryan is offering, plus they will have a full schedule of free classes on all sorts of green topics. Ryan will be posting the class schedule, and they are going to be some awesome classes! There will be 100+ booths on all sorts of green /ecofriendly items. After the classes have ended the group will break off from the larger festival as the tiny house group and will head off to a large community garden where they will be giving a tour of the garden, the chickens, quail and an informal talk on local sustainable agriculture. If folks still have time they will grab dinner after and talk. Get the full scoop at The Tiny Life blog.

Does anyone know the story of this interesting construction facing I 240 in Asheville? The house is at the corner of Short and Cherry Streets, Asheville, NC. It had a spiral staircase connecting the main floor and the top floor but now that’s been blocked off.
This house is supposed to be occupied by a realtor on weekends. His bedroom is the top floor and there’s a camping kitchen and bathroom on the main floor, not much else. Seems to have been built over a single car garage. Any scoop on this place?
