Media Inquiries. We’re continuing to receive emails and phone calls from members of the media who are writing stories and producing documentaries about the small house movement. If you’re interested in being interviewed, let us know.
Education Resources. There are an increasing number of undergraduate and graduate programs focusing on urban development that include the small house movement as part of the curriculum. Because of this, we regularly get requests from students wanting assistance with class projects and thesis work. If you’re interested in helping with these academic disciplines and research, let us know.
Local Small House Society Chapters. Our Directory of Local Contacts is growing. We want to welcome those who joined us this past month. With support requests pouring in from all over the world, it’s important to establish local chapter offices for the Small House Society in various countries, regions, states, and cities. Please let me know if you’re interested in being a local representative and contact. We’ve now added a Google map showing small house representatives in various regions.
Tiny House Conference 2014. If you’re interested in small houses, you’ll want to consider attending The first annual tiny house conference is scheduled in Charlotte, North Carolina. Many of the well known builders and presenters will be there.
Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers and contributors “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of the Small House Society. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that the Small House Society can serve you better.
