If you weren’t one of the 40,000 people who made it to the 2015 Tiny House Jamboree sponsored/hosted/organized by Eco Cabins ( in Colorado Springs, Colorado this post will give you a recap of what you missed!

Can you believe it? Thousands of tiny house people from all over the world got together in one place over the course of a weekend? People from all 50 states and 10 different countries too!

This event proved that LOTS of people want and need more affordable housing options. More alternative housing projects, developments and communities that are smaller, smarter, and more affordable, right? And the good news is that we’re making progress aren’t we?
