The Tiny House Conference is coming up and we’re getting very excited. This year we are going to be in Portland, OR April 8th and 9th for two amazing days of tiny houses tours, talking with people who have built and live in tiny houses. It’s always a blast and the one time a year we all get together and connect in person.
Before you come to the Conference, there are a few things you might want to do:
1. Read up on all our amazing speakers!
Every single one of our speakers live in a tiny house full time and have for years. Almost all of them have also built, at least, one house. This means our speakers have personal hands on experience which you can tap into. They all have their own websites you can see where they live and lessons they learned. Check out our speaker page here.
2. Start sketching your floor plan ideas
We have some amazing tiny house designers and builders going to the conference, plus you’re going to be able to tour several tiny houses in person. Start refining your ideas now so you can get feedback from experts and see how different builders approach design challenges you might be facing.
Friday night we open the doors to everyone for our Tiny House mixer! Basically come hang out with amazing people who love tiny houses, all for free. Not attending the Conference? It’s cool, you’re welcome too! Who doesn’t like to grab a drink with fellow tiny housers? Details and RSVP here
5. Write down your burning questions
When you start thinking about tiny houses, you’ll have a lot of questions. Take the time now to write down your questions so you can make sure you can pick the brains of our speakers, all our speakers live in a tiny house full time and most have built at least one.
Ethan Waldman is one of our new speakers for the 2016 Tiny House Conference. We’re excited to have him on board! Check out the videos below to hear more about his speaker sessions: Lifestyle Design and Tiny House Utilities. Learn more about the conference by clicking here.
I just stumbled upon a series of four videos shot by an attendee of the Tiny House Conference of the 2014 conference in Charlotte. I had no idea he had shot these videos, but it was super fun to watch an outside perspective. Dale toured four tiny houses and shows you the inside of them, plus gives some commentary at the end of the first video. These were great so I wanted to share and I wanted to thank Dale.
It is the final hours for early bird tickets to the Tiny House Conference! Registering by the end of the day on Oct 1st will save you $50 off the regular admission price. The Conference will be held in Portland, OR April 18th and 19th 2015. For more details check out our website at www.tinyhouseconference.com
Below are some videos of speakers from last year, some of whom will be presenting again!
We just launched the new Tiny House Conference website with all the details about our 2015 Tiny House Conference which will be held in Portland, OR. With the launch of the site we are announcing our early bird tickets, which you save $50 on each ticket!
Today I thought I’d share 5 reasons you should buy tickets now, instead of waiting to later.
1. $50 off until Oct. 1st
It isn’t often we do discounts on tickets and I got dozens of emails last year asking if there was going to be another sale as we got closer to the event. I had to sadly say there wasn’t and people who waited to the last few months or weeks, had to pay full price.
2. You get first pick of your sessions
We are doing things a little different than last year. This year we are having people choose their sessions at the time of registration. Meaning that as the sessions fill up, your choices will be less. So for those who register early, they can choose any session they want, while those who wait to the last minute might have no choice at all, because the other sessions are filled up.
3. You’ll get first chance at booking the accommodations of your choice
You may decide that you want to stay at the hotel, but some may opt for a hostel or an airbnb; what about booking a stay at the Tiny House Hotel which is in Portland? I know the hostels have limited beds, the Tiny House Hotel only has 5 tiny houses to stay in, so if you wait until later, your options may be limited.
4. Flights are much cheaper right now
Booking flights last minute can get expensive, so don’t wait until the very end. A recent trip to Portland from the east coast was only $350 round trip when I booked it 3 months in advance; I checked a few weeks before I left and the same flight had risen to $1,200!
5. We have some pretty awesome special surprises coming your way
For those who register in 2014 we are going to have pretty amazing bonus material that we will be announcing soon. Things like free exclusive videos, free webinars, and special emails.
