There's power in storytelling.

We are telling stories that need to be told. Stories of the inspiring modern day pioneers and the positive, powerful community experience of the movement. 

Our goal is to contribute to a ripple effect of positive change through tiny housing advocacy. We seek to help with the mainstreaming of tiny houses of all kinds, a much needed broadening of the modern housing spectrum.

We want to spark community conversation and share resources.

Tiny housing projects have the potential to provide an economically & environmentally sustainable housing option can benefit the everyman & the house-less alike. 

Tiny living is the key, for many, to enjoy a high quality lifestyle rich with freedom, experiences and strong relationships.

We are travelers, nomads, alternative dwellers. This does not keep us from experiencing community. In fact, our community experience is incredible intimate and rich.

We are weaving a community network across the country— not defined by geographic boundaries but made strong through shared experiences, personal connections, open hearts & open minds.
