Tiny House Atlanta has grown from a Meetup to advocacy powerhouse. It is now a program under the MicroLife Institute, a Georgia non-profit, dedicated to building walkable, sustainable “micro-hood” communities while educating individuals, groups, and cities about the positive impacts of micro living. Together they are setting out to inspire and challenge Georgia and the entire Southeast region to embrace more innovative, environmentally-friendly housing. You can currently find their Tiny Office parked on the Atlanta Beltline—inspiring thousands daily!
They have two exciting events planned for late September to help accomplish their goals. I sat down with Will Johnston, co-founder of Tiny House Atlanta and the MicroLife Institute to learn more.
WJ: The Innovative Housing Summit is meant to create a creative space to allow for housing innovation. We know what we can’t do but let’s dream what we can and go do that. The summit is meant to be a starter conversation for a bigger end result in an expansion of housing options and allowing people to live a fuller life and a great living space. The thought leaders and visionaries in the Room will help guide us to the next steps that will open up opportunities for housing innovation.
Keynote Speaker: Ross Chapin, architect and author of “Pocket Neighborhoods: Creating Small-Scale Community in a Large-Scale World”
WJ: This year the Decatur Tiny House Festival is embracing the fun festivities and creativity of how to live your life. We’ve expanded into tiny travel, as well as tiny human area (kids). And of course bringing amazing tiny house structures to downtown Decatur, Georgia, to educate advocate and inspire those who want to live in any footprint they choose.
