See a movie about Tiny Houses and talk with builders/researcher­s

 

Can living small go big? Come see TINY, a film about families living in homes smaller than a parking space and one couple’s attempts to build a similarly scaled house for themselves. A screening of "Tiny: A Story About Living Small" will be followed by a panel discussion led by members of Tiny House In My BackYard (THIMBY), an interdisciplinary collaboration of UC Berkeley students designing and building a zero-net-energy tiny house on the Berkeley Global Campus.

 

 

This event is not specifically cohousing-focused. However, many area cohousers are exploring the potential for tiny homes clustered, perhaps in the style of a trailer park, to form the basis of a cohousing neighborhood -- this could be a good opportunity to talk with urban planners and tiny-home activists about how to move their movement beyond the one-house-at-a-time isolated level it is at now. If you engage folks there, always be polite and focus on listening/empathizing; don't assume they understand cohousing or its advantages, but do be on the lookout for people with passion that we can partner with in our own quest for community

 

Cohousing Coaches/Cohousing California regional organizers Raines Cohen and Betsy Morris are participating in ongoing Berkeley task force conversations about what it would take to create a Tiny Home Village in the area.
