5 Conversations You’ll Have At The Tiny House Conference

The conference is not too far off and people are getting excited!  I get emails every day from people about the conference.  We also have our final sale on tickets which is $50 off if you use code: TINY2013.  I was talking to someone yesterday about how exciting they were about getting to meet a lot of tiny housers and it got me thinking.

So here is my the 5 conversations you’ll have at the Tiny House Conference.

1. That one burning question will get answered – 10 different ways

The tiny house brain trust we have at this event will be staggering, we all have those questions that we are just dying to get answered by people who have been there.  You can talk with people who have been there and done it, you can talk to others who are just starting out, and you can talk with other tiny house dreams too.

2. You’ll share you’re concerns/reasons why you haven’t started building and we’ll show you how to overcome them.

The biggest barrier to me starting my own tiny house wasn’t money or time or knowledge, it was me, myself.  You’ll hear from people who have built their own homes and live in them full time; for every worry, concern, barrier, there at least one person at the event that overcame it and will share how they did it.

3. You’ll talk about going to the bathroom in a bucket.

There is an un-can-ny (ha!) propensity for tiny house people to eventually start talking about how you use a composting toilet.  After presenting at so many events I’ve lost count, someone always asks.

4. You’ll meet people near you that are as excited about tiny houses as you are

The best part about tiny house events is that everyone there is already on board with tiny houses.  So many times if we talk about tiny houses people are quick to question the idea of tiny houses or worse, rain on your parade.  The people coming to this event have already wholeheartedly bought into tiny houses. It means we can move past the objections and move to action.

5. You’ll stop talking about “one day” and move to action

There is a point in every tiny houser’s journey when you stop asking question, you stop worrying, you stop making reasons why not and then you just do it!  Events like this always leave me energized about tiny houses and they build a flame within you that is hard to put out.  It shows us a clear path in our minds and you gain the support that you need to take that first step!

Tiny House Conference – April 2014

Over two years ago I had a mini tiny house conference and had a blast.  I got to meet some great people and we had people coming from the entire East Coast.  It was so much fun I wanted to do it again.  Since then I have always wanted to do a bigger conference, but the trick was always trying to find a location that would suit an event such as this and be affordable to keep ticket costs low.  Well I found the perfect place and we are set to have the first ever Tiny House Conference.

conference-logoThe big thing I wanted to achieve was to have a lot of tiny houses at the event, so you all could tour a wide variety of tiny houses.  So right now we have 7 tiny houses that will be there for you to tour in person.  We also have 12 amazing tiny house speakers most of whom have built or live in a tiny house.

We see this as just the start, with 8 months to go we are going to be adding more and more tiny houses and speakers, so it should be a great time.

Now I haven’t even told anyone about the website, yet we have already had hundreds of people find it and even purchased tickets.

We do have a limited number of tickets and if you buy them before October 1st, you can save $50!
