The Movement to downsize to a more simple life, choosing experiences and community over stuff, reduce our carbon footprint, or even go off-grid is here and growing quickly! Tiny House, Skoolie Bus Conversions, Small Homes and similar concepts are ways that more and more people are interested in everyday. This Meet-up will be a place to meet and network with like-minded people, share resources, education, designs, manufacturers, recycled material options for builds. We also hope to become a go-to community resource for finding sites, and even forming pocket-communities in Central Oregon. This meetup is in the formation stage, so we hope to generate enough interest to start having events in the near future. As such, we are also in the process of forming the goals and mission of the group, so ideas are welcome! Types of Meetups will vary with this group. We will meet in homes, build-site locations and even local foodie places to discuss lifestyle changes and benefits of being tiny. We may even walk-and talk on a tiny hike! Who knows, the meetup options are endless. We could even start our own periodic event in Central OR where other Tiny House experts descend here for workshops and adventure that we Central OR/Bend/Sisters/Redmond have to offer! Ideas for Experts and Panelists for events and resources: Seeking Building Options for several Tiny Home builders to work on their homes year-round. Seeking Building Supplies and appliance options that help in meeting the specific needs of building light sustainable homes. Seeking Designers who enjoy doing architectural designs of tiny homes. Seeking Mentors who have built, are building or know a lot about engineering a mobile home. Seeking Mentors who know about sustainable living and growing your own simple food gardens.
