Important Notes from the 2017 Tiny House Summit
As I’ve been saying repeatedly, most of the ideas for tiny houses apply to building small DIY homes out of natural materials such as earthbags, straw bales, etc. Tiny houses and small homes in general share much in common, and therefore it’s very much worth the time and effort to learn about what’s going on in both types of housing movements. With that in mind I’ve compiled notes of some important concepts that were covered in the recent Tiny House Summit.
