This year’s session lays out the “how-to” of tiny home design, gives updates in coding, and shares opportunities for engagement that include workshops in regional tiny home construction projects. We’ll visit backyard cottages, ADUs, DADUs, Micro Shelters, and mobile dwellings. Speakers discuss building standards, and stacking functions in small spaces. Learn how Northwest housing is adapting to tiny home innovations and how our communities are addressing the urban housing crisis, affordability, and rebuilding the neighborhood spirit.
- Sheri Newbold of Live, Work & Play Architecture discusses codes and standards of infill and small dwellings.
- Ann Raab of GreenPod Intelligent Environments explores designs that maximize use of small spaces.
- Sharon Lee of the Low-Incoming Housing Institute (LIHI) shares their insight on building tiny home communities as a viable, quick and low-cost solution to the homeless crisis.
- Workshop Opportunities: Hear from Tiny House leaders how you can get involved. Sawhorse Revolution’s Sarah Smith takes student-led design teams to build tiny homes. Pat Rasmussen proposes the first hemp insulated tiny home and Architect Alicia Ginsberg building the first code-approved 100-mile home.
