  • Upcoming Solar/Electrical & Plumbing Workshops
    It's been 3 weeks since the Tiny House Building Workshop started! So far we've learned how to select a sturdy trailer, build flooring and wall systems, learned how roofing is installed and ventilates and circulates air!
    Since the workshop started, I've been able to slow down on the organizational aspects of the project and focus on taking in the information as a student. After 4 weeks, I have to say Josh and John are fantastic teachers and have made...

  • 3d Model & Project Update!
    It's happening!
    Last week our designer John McFarlane of Camera Buildings sent over a rough sketchup of the house! A few details will change with the design(we are still working out placement of the windows and sizes due to the salvage situation) but I love what he's done with the back facade!
    Things are moving along on all other fronts as well; this past week we found a trailer, we just need to secure the paperwork as well as fix a few things(thanks Nathyn!), Secondly,  ...

  • Why the City of Vancouver Should Legalize Tiny Houses
    If we stand a chance in slowing the rate of climate change, we need to make a radical shift in not only our daily habits, but also where we live. To do this effectively, there needs to be the willingness to innovate on a municipal level. Lucky for Vancouverites, the City Vancouver created the Greenest City Action Plan(GCAP) in order to become the world’s greenest city by the year 2020. The plan aims to reduce carbon emissions and reduce construction waste by promoting the...

  • Demolition of 1735 east 33rd
    Getting the word out about this project has really paid off!
    A few weeks ago, my friend Jenna 'heard through the grapevine' that a house her friend lived in was being demolished ; the demo company was looking for people to reuse any useful materials from the house. She directed me to facebook page for Vancouver Co Housing.
    I sent Vancouver CoHousing a message and immediately recieved a response from an awesome lady named Tayrn. As it turns out, she happens to be good...
  • Introducing the Tiny Community Centre/Urban Salvagers workshop series!

    The Tiny Community Centre/Urban Salvagers program brings together communities of trades workers, architects, artists, inventors, educators & urban gardeners to collaboratively build an inspiring mobile structure & workshop space for skill sharing. Built almost entirely out of recycled materials, the aesthetic calls the viewer to examine the waste generated in their own lives & consider how it can be repurposed to create positive social change.

    The high cost of living & lack of affordable rental space makes it difficult for...
