Diana Lorence of Innermost House Presents

Innermost House

About two years ago I had the privilege of visiting Diana and her husband Michael at Innermost House. It was a unique experience and I made two good friends from my time with them.

Diana Lorence has three speaking engagements scheduled this month for the tiny-house and sustainable-living devotees in the East! This is exciting also because Diana is starting to speak to public audiences for the first time.

A while back I, Beth Homicz began a correspondence with Diana, who asked me to help her arrange for her to give a talk in my area — Lexington, Virginia, in the southern Shenandoah Valley. We have set the date for that talk, for Sunday, October 20. As it happens, however, she has been invited to speak even sooner to the distinguished Thoreau Society in Concord, Massachusetts and that talk will happen this Friday evening, October 11. There is also a talk scheduled for Sunday, October 13, at the historic First Church Somerville UCC in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Diana’s talks will focus on “Where I Lived and What I Lived For,” a theme she borrowed from a chapter in Thoreau’s classic Walden. So she won’t be discussing the nuts and bolts of tiny house building or planning, but rather the simple, mindful, contemplative life she and her husband created in their tiny cabin.

Hi Kent,

From Diana’s blog, it looks like she and her husband moved out of the house. Did they find or build another tiny house?

    Kent Griswold - October 11, 2013 Reply

    Yes they are now on the east coast but have not built another place yet to my knowledge.
