• Start a Tiny Community (part mixer / part idea exchange)

    THIS MEETUP IS BEING REPLACED BY AN ONLINE CALL (DUE TO SNOW) Please check out this page for details on connecting. https://www.meetup.com/Tiny-Village-Communities/messages/boards/thread/52010529/0/#[masked] Keeping the original meetup below for reference, join our online call instead. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hi everyone! Do you like the idea of living in cozy small dwellings with a group of like-minded individuals living cooperatively? Would you rather have fewer material possessions in exchange for a minimalistic lifestyle and more free time? Our two main areas of focus are planning and logistics as well as meeting other enthusiasts for developing your own Tiny Village Community. We will meet at Raconteur for our 2nd meetup, this will be a part mixer and part idea exchange. We'll focus our talks on Tiny Homes and building Tiny Communities, the challenges (building codes and such), as well as share ideas. Plus you'll get to know others that want to build. Bring your dreams and ideas to share. I expect this will be a small group like last time. Come for the happy hour (until 6 pm) and check out the bookstore while you're here :) Raconteur - https://www.yelp.com/biz/raconteur-seattle Check out their happy hour (3-6pm) - http://raconteurseattle.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Raconteur-HH-Menu-2018.pdf P.S. This is a cross-post from my group "Tiny Village Communities", you can RSVP for the event here or there :) https://www.meetup.com/Tiny-Village-Communities/

  • HELP MAKE TINY HOUSES LEGAL IN WASHINGTON

    Cherberg Building

    This is HUGE! The Washington Tiny House Association has been working for over a year to get these bills to the Senate floor. We HAVE to show up for this to show that there is a REAL need for affordable housing. Read up on these two bills: https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5382&Year=2019 https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5383&Year=2019 Please take the time off work and make your voice heard! This is when real change happens! About four years ago a group of tiny house builders met with the IRC (international residential code) committee and managed to get code in place to allow for dwellings under 400 sq ft to actually be able to be classified and built as dwellings. This code has been going state to state and had been adopted in atleast five other states at this point. Right now after a year of the Washington Tiny House Association petitioning and lobbying and working with state officials they have finally brought to bills to be looked at by the State Senate. One bill is the IRC Tiny House Appendix which would mean people can legally build and live in tiny homes, on land or on wheels. The second bill has to do with allowing tiny house committees to be built and zoned legally. We just got the word last night that they are finally going to review these two bills at the State Senate. If it passes there it will go to the House, if it passes there it will go to Governor who has already expressed support. Then it will be a matter to take to each county and have each county adopt the code to allow for legal tiny house building and living. This Wednesday is the only time for the public to show up and show their support for this bill. It is CRUCIAL to show a need and desire for these bills. It is a big overhaul to pass these bills and they aren't going to do it if it looks like no one cares or perhaps people are showing who oppose it. This Wednesday the 6th at 1 PM. WA State Senate Cherberg Building Room[masked]th Ave Olympia, WA Thank you!

  • From SketchUp to Virtual Reality

    Cafe Aroma

    From SketchUp to Virtual Reality? What does that mean? It is possible to walk inside a SketchUp model of your Tiny House design. We're going to be showing what I call pre-visualizatoin of a tiny house design. Using VR you can determine how a space looks and feels before you actually commit to building it. Design changes are far easier to implement before it's built. more details to follow... VR simulation and equipment being provided by Larry James and VRMakerDome. https://www.facebook.com/VRMakerDome [Recommended donation for VR support at this event is $5 or above] Cafe Aroma has graciously agreed to provide space for this event. Please give them a great review and like and share thier page. Attendees of this event are strongly recommended to purchase beverage, lunch, and tip well so we can continue to utilize their space.

  • From SketchUp to reality - Design your Tiny House (Basic)

    Redmond Regional Library,

    From SketchUp to reality! Come on join us for a fun afternoon. Here are few of many things I built from the computer to reality. SketchUp is a computer software that is the best tool for building Tiny House because is Free, Easy to Use, and safe to use. Safe means the measurement and whole 3D thing are accurate, it's trustable. You can rely on what you build in the computer. Meeting Agenda: 1:00 Go around introduce yourself why you are here, & what you hope to get from this meeting (2 mins each person). 1:30 Everyone draws on pic paper of the dimensions of your project (30 mins). 2:00 Together we watch Ten mins YouTube video of the SketchUp basic. Get on computer, down load (https://www.sketchup.com/download)or get on web base (https://my.sketchup.com/app)SketchUp We will go around the table to make sure everyone can do: • Draw a shape, • pull the shape to 3D, • group the object. • Move, & copy, • Delete, • Layers. • Download one thing from 3D warehouse. The people that familiar with SketchUp can help with the first timer, so no one falls behind. It is not necessary If you want to learn little about before you come, here is the video we will be watching (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B3LR7PEiPZXfRF9haTJYUVRPZUk?usp=sharing). But don't overwhelm yourself. You don't have to know anything and you can take away class agenda in two hours. Bring your computer and earphone. Hope to see you there! Candice
