[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.

MAKE Goes to Tiny House Camp

Our intrepid man of tiny house mystery,  Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, was in Vermont recently for a Tiny House Summer Camp. Thanks to MAKE, we have a little video to share. Deek is über-knowledgable about building tiny houses. Draw a tall drink from his well of knowledge at our Chicago and New York Workshops. Both locations are on sale until the end of the month, so act fast!

Deek and his tiny house on The History Channel


Our intrepid tiny house building machine Derek "Deek" Diedricksen was featured on the "Livin' Large" episode of the new show "The United STATS of America" (hosted by the comedic twins Jason and Randy Sklar) on the History Channel. Deek was kind enough to send us a clip. You can watch the complete show here, which is a great expose of the the American obsession with space, and "more, more, more!". You can glean from Deek's vast storehouse of tiny house knowledge at our Chicago workshop in September. Take advantage of our whopping 40% discount until June 30th, 2012.

Yestermorrow Design Class


Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont is hosting a buildingclass focused on building a tiny house on wheels. re: http://www.yestermorrow.org/workshops/detail/tiny-house-design-build 

They're hoping to find a client who would like to offer their little house as the subject of the class -- significantly jump-starting the construction process! Essentially, the client would dictate the design and offer the materials, including the trailer, and the folks at Yestermorrow would begin the construction process as part of the class. 

If anyone is interested in getting more information about the class or 
how their project could be used in the class, please contact John Hanke of Yestermorrow. He can provide information about how the class went last year. I've attached a photo of the little house they started last year. The porch and other aspects of the house weren't complete,but the walls and roof were on and the project well underway by the end of the class. John's e-mail is jphanke@gmavt.net.
