Tiny House Conference 2014 – Photos

So a few weeks after the conference I’ve finally got around to posting photos, trying to finish my house by the end of this month has had me busy!  Here are a bunch of photos from the conference.  Our photographer for the event was Christopher Tack.

  1. Great job! Your hard work really came to life.

  2. These are fantastic! I love reliving the memories of this event. It was a life-changing experience, and I cannot wait for the next one. Thank you for sharing.

  3. At 70, and on a fixed income, I will probably never see my dream of a Tiny House fulfilled…so I dream and drool! Thanks for the great pics!

  4. I will definitely make it next year! This looks like you had a blast.

  5. Great to see some well designed container homes. The other wooden designs looked stunning too. Hope something like this happens in the UK soon.

  6. At 57, this August, I have set a goal of having all I need to build a Tiny House, and getting it built by the time I reach 60. My last year’s will be my happiest years. Looking forward to the peace and quiet, growing my food, raising chickens, a goat, and a cow. Leaving as small of a carbon footprint, as possible. Starting with the tiny home I will build, using over 90% reclaimed, and salvaged materials, solar and wind power, etc…

    • Nice goal Jonnie! I love it. I’m in my 50’s and saving to do the same thing 🙂 yay! I love the idea of the simple living and NO rent or mortgage.

      • My kids think it’s a middle age crisis thing. LOL. My grandkids want to come live with me. I call it my, wake up and smell the coffee momentum. I think more would do it if they thought it a real option. A lot of older people just settle. I wish there was a way to reach them, and let them know the joy of true freedom.

  7. I have a question about shipping containers. I’ve been looking at LOTS of tiny house plans and have noticed that a shipping container also fits on a trailer. Would it be the same size of trailer you would use for a tiny house? I’m thinking this might be easier cause you already have your ‘shell’. What are the pros and cons? Any comments would be appreciated 😉

    • Hi from Germany,

      in my opinion one could get serious problems with moisture inside a container becaus except of the windows it is waterproof. This includes vapor can not get through the walls. One get really get issues with condesating water on the inner surface of the metall hull of containers. To “fix” that you would have to make your metall ventilated on the back. Drilling holes on the bottom of the metal walls and on the top. Establish a free “airflow” zone between inner walls and metall. Just like you have to do on a metal roof.

      Just my two cents on that.
