Small House Society – News 201401 | 31 July 2014 | Thursday
We’ve had a busy summer here at the Small House Society. Here’s the latest news.
Tiny House Nation. In case you’ve not heard yet, the small house movement is now a television show on A&E called Tiny House Nation. It’s free advertising for our movement, so we should do all we can to help promote it. The show airs live on A&E, and can be viewed online by those with an approved television service provider login.
Small House Workshop & Build in Iowa City on 9 August 2014
We’re really excited to have Dee Williams coming to Iowa City for a small house workshop and build. She’ll be joined by her brother, an Iowa City native, for what promises to be an amazing event. Here’s the announcement from Doug:
Join us in Iowa for a one day workshop, kicking off the construction of a 12-foot tiny house on wheels. During this day-long intensive you will frame the floor and walls, anchoring them to a utility trailer. PAD is partnering with a local volunteer group, TINY HOUSE IOWA CITY, and Dee will teach the workshop along side her brother, Doug, a long time builder and teacher. The workshop will be held at Coralville United Methodist Church, 806 13th Ave, Coralville, IA 52241, and will include a meet-up social on Saturday night in Iowa City. To register visit Dee’s website (here). To help spread the word, click here for the Facebook event page.
Free Road Trip! Check out this all expense paid road trip from Portland to Austin + free little house vacation stay. This is a great opportunity for the right person to enjoy a road trip and vacation all paid.
Small House Competition. The Sing Core group is having a small folding house competition. Check it out.
Annual Fundraiser. At the start of each new year, we focus on fundraising for only a few weeks. Donations help us have greater impact throughout the year ahead in promoting and supporting the small house movement. This year, we had only one brief mention of the fundraiser, and as a result, we’ve had only 12 donations come in. So, if you feel inclined, consider donating to our cause. You can give using PayPal, Fundly, or by sending a check to: Small House Society, PO Box 2717, Iowa City, IA 52244-2717. Thanks!

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.
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.
