This is to announce a new TV series on Canadians living in tiny homes and other alternative houses too called HomeMade: Dwelling Differently. It’s a new four-part series premiering online and on TELUS Optik TV. It already started so you can already start catching up on episodes if you’d like.

The four-part series features Canadians doing home differently in BC and Alberta; individuals and families who have spent a great deal of time and energy to reimagine what it means to build a home within their environment and society.
