There is a revolution afoot in this country, the Tiny House with its small footprint offers shelter with dignity, privacy and independence. It is also a potential solution to address the challenge of a shortage of housing for the underprivileged, our growing elderly population and our workforce. Tiny Houses can address many of these needs and trends.

This program will address these societal challenges along with discussing equity in housing that encompasses future proofing homes for healthy, durable, energy efficient and resilient structures thoughtfully integrated into our communities.

Using smart passive building house best practices and building science-based systems, modular construction practices and smart materials, you will learn how we can produce durable homes for large numbers of our underserved communities.
