Tiny Homes, Tiny Houses, Micro Dwellings… however you label them, seem to strike a chord with the child in all of us. I think we have all had aspirations of tiny-living at some point in our lives whether it a sofa cushion castle, bedsheet teepee, or tree house fort as a child.
During the Aug 7-9, 2015 weekend, I was able to attend the FIRST OFFICIAL intergalactic (well maybe international… maybe just national) Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I had been following the tiny house movement for years. I suppose I should have made the connection between the growing availability of tiny house info and its popularity, but for whatever reason I did not. You could imagine my surprise when I arrived at the event venue and found a packed parking lot.
I was fortunate to meet many of my favorite tiny house celebs from various blogs & vlogs, listen to a few talks, and even have some of my tiny questions answered by industry experts. I stayed for several hours longer than I anticipated, partly to let the crowds die down so I could explore the many display tiny house models on site. Nevertheless, the crowds and lines kept getting larger. The tiny house movement is huge! The neatest thing… I think I made contacts with folks that I feel will become lifelong friends!
Why am I sharing this today? I was so excited and had so much fun at the jamboree that I just HAD to tell someone!
