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.
One of the most rewarding things about putting on the Tiny House Conference is the amazing things that come out of it. I’ve met so many amazing people, have had a chance to see so many tiny houses and recently I learned that many people who came to the Tiny House Conference left inspired and started building! Today I wanted to show you two houses that were built by people who came and learned all about tiny houses at the conference!
The first house is built by Jody and Bill who came to the conference. Jody and Bill knew tiny houses were for them, but wanted to come to the Conference to learn all the details, see all of the tiny houses we had on site to tour and talk with our speakers who have built and lived in tiny houses themselves.
Here is the house Jody and Bill built:
The next attendee that built a house was Mark. He came to us all the way from Alaska! Soon after attending, he began building his tiny house which has been his cozy home ever since, even in the harsh winters of Alaska.
Here’s his house:

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.
