Sonoma County Home and Garden Show

Friday afternoon my wife and I went to the Sonoma County Home and Garden Show located at the fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California. Stephen Marshall from Little House on the Trailer was displaying three of his homes there and had sent me complimentary tickets. Thanks Stephen.

We took our time looking at many of the displays, which included solar and many other building material exhibits. They also had brought together the RV and Boat show, trying to save money with the down economy, as these are usually separate shows.


My wife had not seen Stephen’s work before so we toured his new little cottage, the art studio and his original tiny house on the trailer. My wife preferred the larger size of the little house on the trailer and thought it much more livable, but would like a separate bedroom. Anyway I have included a few pictures of our visit.

We stopped over in the RV section and looked at the one park model on display. Janelle thought that she could live in that just fine once we downsized a bit on the belongings. The loft design did not seem right but the rest of the floor plan was great. Anyway we had an enjoyable time at the Home and Garden Show and I would recommend you go to one in the future.

Just a note to say how much I enjoy your blog and its focus on tiny houses.
I look forward to reading it daily, and talk it up whenever I get the chance. The idea of smaller and smarter over large and wasteful is definitely the next wave in building, or should be.
Thanks again,
Cookie Haber

Thanks for posting these photos Kent. It would have been fun to come over and see this show but now I feel like I didn’t completely miss out.

I really like seeing a photo of that Avanti compact kitchen too. That looks like a great idea for a tiny kitchen.

Hi Shirley – the log cabin is not one of Stephen’s but is sold by Reeds RV in Petaluma, California. The price at the show was $54,000. You can learn more about it at this link:
