Living Small: Tiny & Affordable Houses


You’ve all seen the Hobbit houses on flat-bed trucks and the three story family homes built on smaller footprints that most of our shoe racks, but the tiny housing movement stands for more than Pinterest clickbait. It addresses political, social and environmental concerns while still drawing the eye. This panel discussion will look at a few of the formal and informal design and construction options available to tiny builders, consider some of the political and social implications they raise, and offer you a chance to quiz some people who have built, and are living in and loving tiny houses.

>>Sally Wills is a registered builder and project home developer. She is an HIA award winner, and an active lobbyist for changes in the secondary dwelling regulations that block many affordable housing projects. 

>>Chloe Sinclair is a student who is building a Tiny House on Wheels, but who has also critiqued the THoW movement as part of her studies in intersectional theory.

>>Liam Culbertsonhas recently completed 18 months as part of a documented experiment in cooperative alternative housing.U
