What we're about
Welcome! We are really glad you are here. This group was originally founded by BA Norrgard and is currently led by Ken Lewis for anyone interested in learning about, building, and-or maintaining a tiny home. We are DFW local, vibrant, and drama-free!
We are open-minded by having no judgment, a community spirit, and live by example to show others that living with less can be freeing financially and by allowing more time for personal development and community involvement/contribution.
This group will soon move to a subscription-based model for those serious about tiny living. By becoming a subscriber-based community, we can pool money together to rent space for people to self-build their homes. Our community model will be set up to have other members help to build tiny homes, thus learning the building techniques themselves to then move forward and build one for themselves, with the help of others in the Meetup community. (This will work similarly to how Habitat for Humanity operates, except for the owner of the home being built must furnish all materials for their own build.) By using this model, people can build a home for much less than the marketplace, as well as make sure the home is built to specific regulations.
Another factor in starting the subscription-based approach is to use our platform to help those who stood for us in the military. Our community will build tiny homes for homeless veterans to live in. We will literally give the keys to a homeless veteran and transfer ownership to that vet. We can use this community to help those who helped us. We would also like to make sure those vets have income once they are living in their tiny homes, so part of the subscription fee will go to employ vets to give them the power to move away from homelessness.
We do not allow unmonitored advertising for builders, material handlers, or other home improvement outlets. However, if you are a business and you'd like to host an event, or offer material, money, or other items for a tiny home build, we are always interested in talking with you! As part of our community offering, we will be building as many tiny homes to give away to homeless veterans as we can each year. Your money will go to a worthy cause, and your participation can garner free advertising for your company directly to our community which includes future tiny homeowners. Just email at email@example.com and we can set up a time to chat about your idea.
