    October 25, 2014
    Screenshot 2015-03-01 at 4.31.52 PM.png
    As the Tiny Community Centre gets ready to leave its build site at the Vancouver Community Laboratory , I decided it was about time the project had its own webpage.
    On it, you will find information on current progress of the house and come springtime, information on workshops and ways to get involved!
    Upcoming projects/happenings
    • Securing space for mobile community spaces at empty gas station lots in Vancouver

  • Tiny Community Centre is nearing completion!
    October 4, 2014
    The Tiny House Building Workshop Series is finished, and now the Tiny Community Centre is nearly finished too! It's been a month since the workshop wrapped up and I wanted to share what I learned, so those of you thinking of building a tiny house can learn from some of the challenges we faced.
    The Workshop
    Although our original plan was to build the house alongside the workshop in a step by step process, certain...
  • Learning & Building!
    August 20, 2014
    There's only 3 workshops left in the Tiny House Building Workshop Series and I couldn't be happier. Wait, that came out wrong, not because it's almost done, but because I am so inspired by Josh and John as well as all of our workshop participants! I am so glad to to have had the opportunity to work all of them because they have made this whole experience more fun than I ever could have imagined! I am also excited for...
  • Upcoming Solar/Electrical & Plumbing Workshops
    July 28, 2014
    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!
    April 29, 2014
    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
    April 7, 2014
    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...
