Behind The Scenes Of The Tiny House Conference

The Tiny House Conference has come to a close and it was an amazing weekend that was a ton of fun.  As always, all the tiny house folks were amazing people who were excited to be there.  We had over 350 folks descend on Portland for a great weekend of sessions, house tours and connecting.

Today I wanted to do a post that shows some of the behind the scenes of the conference.

We had a lot of badge; 407 in all for the attendees, volunteers, staff, speakers, and media.  It took me literally 5 hours to punch out the name cards and insert them into the badges.

We got ready for the big day by laying all the badges out:
