  • 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...
  • Tips on Hosting a Work Party
    Last week, I acquired a large amount of wood over 2 days.  About half of the wood was full of nails, but since I had not finished the shelves in the garage, we had no way to seperate the wood with nails and de-nailed wood, so we had to pile all of it on the floor.  So, let it be a lesson to anyone else thinking of building a tiny house or any other construction project, finish your shelves BEFORE you start...
  • Sustainability and the Tiny House
     adjective \sə-ˈstā-nə-bəl\

    : able to be used without being completely used up or destroyed

    : involving methods that do not completely use up or destroy natural resources

    : able to last or continue for a long time


    When asked about it, many people, especially in Vancouver, would likely claim they try to ' live sustainably '. But is turning our lights off and taking shorter showers enough, or should we be doing more? Is that really enough to make...
  • Whatever you do, DON'T BE SHY!

    When taking on a big project, like the tiny house project , you have to make it your full time job. That doesn't mean you have to spend every moment of everyday working on it, but it definitely helps to have some tools on hand to help you spread the word whenever unexpected moments (or moments caused entirely by you) present themselves.


    In the beggining stages, the most useful thing you can do, is to   tell everyone about...

  • Seth Rogan's wood
    So I guess I have to explain that title huh?
    Ok, so, a couple days ago, my insanely talented set builder/bike builder/maker of everything awesome friend Josh Armstrong called me up and asked,
    "Hey, I was working on a movie set, and uhhh....
    do you want your roof to be made of wood from a Seth Rogan set?" 
    Do I?
     So Josh borrowed his company truck and braved the heavy rain and soon after, arrived with a huge stack of beautiful Seth Rogan wood. He...
  • Meet Halfway
    This past 2 weeks has been a frenzy of meetings with so many amazing and talented people. I've had so much fun brainstorming ideas and getting contacts in order to move forward on the next stages of this project. 
    One of the talented people I met with was Architect Christopher Small.  I met Christopher when I was working on the Parade of Lost Souls at Public Dreams . At the time, Christopher and his company Small Design Studio were busy renovating the Public...
  • Learn to build a Tiny House!

    My name is Zee and I am building a tiny house!  And you can too! 

    For those of you who have never heard of the tiny house movement , it's comprised of people who choose to live in smaller than average homes, ranging roughly from 80-800 square feet.

    The movement is gaining momentum in the US for environmental and financial reasons, and appeals to those seeking more time and freedom from house upkeep and mortgages. 


    I love tiny spaces!
