Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape features Tammy and Logan’s PAD Tiny House in it’s new home in Northern California. Tammy took this picture recently with the little Christmas tree sitting on the front porch and their tiny house nicely framed by this nearby tree.

Tammy and Logan now live on a high plain of farmland that looks toward Mt. Shasta. I had the joy of stopping and visiting with them a couple of months ago and I can imagine what it is like as winter sets in. To view more of Tammy’s photography and enjoy her writing please visit her site at RowdyKittens.com

PAD Update from Dee Williams

Following is a letter from my friend Dee Williams.

Hope you are well and enjoying this October! It is beautiful out! I’m forwarding this to you with the hopes that you might consider posting a notice about it on your blog, or with your tiny house network.

In the past couple of months, my company Portland Alternative Dwellings (PAD) has been working on a new look and focus. We recently reorganized, and now will offer more workshops and consulting services.

Our first ‘Build it Tiny’ workshop is coming up this November 10th. We’ll focus on practical solutions for some of the more challenging little house conundrums: where to place/park your tiny house, code enforcement, insurance, electrical hook-ups, wastewater and (drum roll please…) toilets! The workshop will provide detailed information from local experts, and a great opportunity to meet others in the tiny house community. It will be an awesome opportunity to further flesh out the details for your little house, and to sort through some of the hard-knuckle decisions associated with a tiny house.

In the spring, folks can join us for another workshop: a hands-on, tool wielding weekend workshop focused on building a little house!

Our new website: www.padtinyhouses.com offers more information about PAD and the up-coming workshops.

Hope you are well and enjoying the last bit of summer!

Be well,
Dee
