Brittany’s Fencl Open House

You may have seen pictures of the amazing Fencl Brittany built, but have you ever wanted to see it first hand? Well now you can! Brittany is hosting a 1-day open house next weekend where you can take a look around and ask Brittany your tiny house questions. Brittany learned how to build her lovely house after attending a Tumbleweed workshop, could you be next?

Here’s a message from Brittany with all the details:

Are you interested in exploring, testing, touching, trying, photographing, peeing in (the composting toilet – duh!), measuring & learning more about tiny houses? Then this is for you! Learn about how it was built, why I decided to build it, how it works, what goes in (water, electricity & food) and how it all comes out (gray water, urine-diverting toilet system), and most of all – does it fit YOU? Bring on the questions! Bring a sketchpad, measuring tape & camera & explore this tiny house....

TINY: A Story About Living Small

TINY: A Story About Living Small

West Coast Film Premiere

Date & Time: Wednesday, May 22, 2013 / 7:00 pm
Location: SPUR / Annie Alley / San Francisco 
In person:Merete MuellerChristopher Smith

Watch Trailer | Download Program Guide (PDF)

[62 mins] What is home? And how do we find it? TINY follows one couple’s attempt to build a Tiny House from scratch with no building experience, and profiles other families who have downsized their lives into houses smaller than the average parking space. Through homes stripped down to their essentials, the film raises questions about sustainability, good design, and the changing American Dream. Fresh off its premiere at SXSW 2013, TINY, will feel perfectly sized for an outdoor screening in the street-turnedpedestrian plaza atmosphere of Annie Alley. This sneak peek of the 2013 San Francisco Green Film Festival will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers.

Co-presented by the San Francisco Green Film Festival and generously sponsored by the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District.

Tiny Houses on Display in Boulder

three-tiny-houses-cropped-600

I’ve just returned from Tumbleweed’s Boulder workshop on tiny houses, along with Joe and Shelby, and I’m savoring some great memories. What can I say? Boulder workshop attendees were just about the luckiest Tumbleweed fans alive. Through a special convergence of events, we were able to see three different tiny houses; a lovely visiting Vardo, the Fencl, and the brand new Cypress 20.

Our weekend started off with local research. On Friday we stopped at the Boulder Land Use Planning Division to ask about tiny houses and cottages. As always, tiny houses are not specifically defined in the existing codes. Cottages should have no problems, but it was explained there wasn’t much available land in Boulder proper. Though we didn’t get any actionable info, the woman we spoke to was friendly and open in her attitude toward our questions, and was very happy to help us track down information. I felt like we accomplished something in the sense of planting the seed in another official’s mind about tiny houses – you never know, she may someday have a chance to influence things....
