Tiny house tour in Floyd, VA

Hello DC Tiny House Enthusiasts!

I have come across this amazing Tiny House event in Floyd, VA. 

http://sustainfloyd.org/tiny-floyd-thinks-tiny-house-may-17/

It is a tour of 5 tiny homes on Saturday May 17th. In the evening there will be a showing of the documentary Tiny: A Story About Living Large. Tickets for the house tours are $15 and the movie is $5. You can buy tickets for the tour with the link above. I will be driving to Floyd (about 4.5 to 5 hours according to google) either Friday, May 16th in the evening or early Saturday morning.

I wanted to extend this invitation for those interested and coordinate carpooling. I am very flexible on when we leave and come back. I was also thinking of camping in Floyd Saturday night at this place called Floyd EcoVillage:

I know I haven't met a lot of you yet, so we could meet up sometime within the next few weeks to chat about this trip and meet each other. It'd probably help ease the awkwardness of a road trip with strangers too! Please message me if you're interested.

    Hello all!! I recently purchased a ticket to this event, but had a difficult time with the timing around the travel. However, if I didn't have to travel alone, and could get assistance with gas costs, I would absolutely reconsider going. My car can fit four non-smokers comfortably. I don't have camping gear or experience, but would have no trouble camping out and sharing costs.

      Hi Lisa. Unfortunately, my dog arrangements are not working out. I won't be able to go. I'm very, very sorry!!! I will mention, though, that since the tour seems to be 'at your own pace' from 10-4. So I'm sure anyone you could still get there by noon or so and still see all the homes. I heard zipcar rentals are quite affordable. Maybe you could also contact Jesse directly via meetup e-mail to see if he has room for you. Good luck! And, again, I'm very sorry!

    Hi, Tahisha! A reasonably priced hotel in Floyd is the rustic, but clean Oak Haven Lodge: http://www.oakhavenlodge.com/index.php
    But I'm not sure they still have rooms as this is VA Tech weekend. There is camping at the Floyd EcoVillage and Chantilly Farm. Really hope you can make it to beautiful Floyd, VA!

      Thanks Becky! My circumstances have changed and I'm no longer able to go. Hope to come to the next one (I'm sure you'll have a next one!). Cheers!

    If anyone from the Bethesda/Silver Spring/Rockville area is going, I'd be interested in rideshare :)

    Lisa, this is a self-guided driving tour, but I think Jesse in the Meetup group is planning a carpool. Hope you can make it! You can get a tour ticket at www.sustainfloyd.org.

    I would really like to do this tour but do not drive. Anyway to get here via public transportation? Perhaps the VRE?

    Hi, Jesse and all from SustainFloyd in Floyd, VA! We are hosting this wonderful self-guided driving tour on Saturday, May 17th of 5 tiny houses and a yurt. One of them is the famous tiny house of Hari and Karl Berzins. The owners WILL be at the houses.
    We hope you all will come! Camping at the Floyd Eco-Village is beautiful. Hotel Floyd right downtown is modern and lovely with reasonable rates.
    If you arrive the night before, go to the famous Friday Night Jamboree at the Floyd Country Store downtown and dance to live bluegrass! After the tour on Saturday, we will screen the new documentary "TINY: A Story About Living Small."
    Also on May 17th, your $15 tour ticket will get you 10% off your dinner tab at many Floyd restaurants. Buy tickets at www.sustainfloyd.org.
