Houses That Fit In Your Pocket with Ross Chapin

If you’re planning on visiting, living in, creating, or dreaming of a tiny house community; you have no doubt heard of our guest this week; Ross Chapin. His amazing vision, his dedication, and his book “Pocket Neighborhoods – Creating Small Scale Community in a Large Scale World” have created an opportunity to reshape the way cities approach planning neighborhoods. It doesn’t matter if the house is on wheels, or on a foundation; his ideas about how to create an environment of both connection and privacy are positively ground-breaking. (pun intended!) His style is simple, inspired by the idea of creating an environment that encourages sharing with our neighbors, and every feature of the spaces he envisions has a practical function; though many of them are not obvious. This is one of those interviews that you really should take time-out for. So, grab a cup of your favorite tea or coffee, settle into a comfy chair, turn off the ringer on your cell phone, and join us for a discussion with a guy who gives ideas on how you can create connection with others, one tiny step at a time, in your own community; no shovel required.
